Fans of ''Series/RupaulsDragRace'' might remember the Miss Gay America pageant as a source of drama in Season 5. Alyssa Edwards had won the crown but was dethroned for failing to fulfill her obligations, and the crown went to runner-up Coco Montrese. Since both queens appeared on the show that season, their rivalry became a driving conflict. Besides them, several other contestants from the show have competed in pageants as well.
