Amid the drama and glamour of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 10, one queen has already proven that sometimes, going home first is a good thing. Vanessa Vanjie Mateo was the first to leave the competition this season, but her exit, in which she simply repeated the words “Miss Vanjie” over and over again, has become the stuff of legend.
Miss Vanjie has become so popular that even actor Andrew Garfield knows about her meme -- and loves it. “I was so disappointed to see Miss Vanjie go, as everyone was,” Garfield said in an interview on Broadway.com’s Show People with Paul Wontorek while promoting his starring role in the Broadway revival of Angels in America. “And that exit is like one of the iconic moments – I believe – of Drag Race history.”
