* {{Sleepyhead}}: Jinkx Monsoon from Season 5, who has narcolepsy. In the first episode he's shown to have dozed off on a couch at one point, prompting the other queens to ask about it, and then later he seems to fall asleep when in front of the ConfessionCam, prompting someone offscreen to ask he's okay. He also explains that it's "not like on TV" where someone falls asleep right away, and that he can feel it coming and usually tries to get to a couch or someplace similar.

* SmallAnnoyingCreature: The other queens from Season 5 describe Serena [=ChaCha=] as this, since she's physically very tiny and also [[CuteButCacophonic very loud]], especially at one point where she starts singing randomly and Jade visibly winces.

** Both Nina Flowers and Raven, the runner ups of Seasons 1 and 2, seem to have enjoyed greater success than the actual winners.

** And in terms of the judges, recurring judge Santino Rice came in second on his season of ''Series/ProjectRunway'' but is probably now more well known than the actual winner of his season, Chloe Dao. Alyssa Edwards gets a KickTheDog moment about this during the [=RuPaul=] Roast when she says that the thing that both Coco and Santino have in common is being runners up.

** Katya managed to achieve this on All Stars 2. Already a fan favorite, her time on the show pushed her popularity to new heights. Going in to the final episode, a poll on the Drag Race Twitter account showed that Katya was the fan choice to win by a ''lot''. Although Alaska ended up winning, her win was marked by controversy around rigging and some comments she had made on the show, whereas Katya's popularity continued to soar.
** Though not runner-ups, Alyssa and Tatiana also became ''much'' more popular with the fans after their appearance on All Stars 2.

* TheRunnerUpTakesItAll:
** Both Nina Flowers and Raven, the runner ups of Seasons 1 and 2, seem to have enjoyed greater success than the actual winners.
** This may have something to do with the winner's prize including a headline slot on the Drag Race tour, which would seem to be a fairly time-consuming engagement, while the runners-up are free to take on other, more high-profile jobs.
** Pandora Boxx seems to have found the most success of all, seeing as she's now omnipresent on just about every Creator/{{LOGO}} show.
** Shangela may have found the most mainstream success, having guest-starred in shows such as ''Series/TheSoup'', ''Series/{{Community}}'', ''Series/{{Glee}}'', and ''Series/TwoBrokeGirls''
** And in terms of the judges, recurring judge Santino Rice came in second on his season of ''Series/ProjectRunway'' but is probably now more well known than the actual winner of his season, Chloe Dao. Alyssa Edwards gets a KickTheDog moment about this during the [=RuPaul=] Roast when she says that the thing that both Coco and Santino have in common is being runners up.
** Speaking of Coco and Alyssa, this is the major source of tension between them, since Coco came in second in the Miss Gay America pageant that Alyssa won, but wound up taking over the crown after it was taken from Alyssa for unspecified reasons.
** Just like Pandora, Alaska is virtually omnipresent on the Creator/{{LOGO}} website and [=WorldOfWonder=]'s Youtube page. The show even asked her to provide running commentary on Season 4 and 5's ''Untucked'' and two episodes of Season 7.

** "Serving realness". In usage, queens will use this to summarize their look; for example she might be "serving country realness". Since it's just a look put on by a drag queen, it isn't ''actually'' "real", but it's as real as possible.

** Joslyn Fox started fangasming at first sight once she realized she was sharing the same season with Courtney Act. However, in the Feast of Fun podcast, Joslyn revealed that she actually wasn't as big a superfan as she appeared, it was just that she was the only girl in her group who knew who Courtney was and she felt that she needed to ''school'' the other girls.

** One of the grand prizes offered to the winner used to be a headlining spot on the Drag Race tour. While this seems like a good prize in theory, being on the tour takes up a good chunk of the winner's time in the year where they are most popular (the year following their season, when they're still fresh in the audience's mind), while the [[TheRunnerUpTakesItALl runner-ups are free to go on and take more high-profile gigs]].

* TheUnintelligible: Every season there's at least one contestant -- usually from Puerto Rico -- with a flawed grasp of English and an extremely thick accent, meaning the other queens have no idea what she's saying half the time, and due to the language/culture barrier, certain jokes and references might fly over her head. Yara Sofia was well aware of this and actually used it as a joke in several challenges. (As her friend Alexis points out, Yara is frequently TheUnintelligible ''even in Spanish''.

** Season 2's Mystique was a continual source of ridicule to the other queens for her general lack of polish and weight, even after she was eliminated.

** Season 2's Mystique was a continual source of ridicule to the other queens for her general lack of polish and weight, even after she was eliminated. Tatianna received a similar amount of shade for "not being drag enough"--she was easily the fishiest girl in her season, but her looks tended to be basic tube dresses without any flamboyant embellishment.

** Sharon Needles, who (at the time) was doing a style of drag entirely different from anything seen before on the show. In spite of this, she proved time and time again why she deserved to be there, showing an incredible amount of nerve, wit, and talent all throughout the show , while still being unique in her display of freaky, genderfuck drag on the runway. She won a four challenges during her season, a record which still hasn't been broken, and remains one of the most popular queens of all time.
