Kalorie Karbdashian Williams

Episode 2 of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 10 started with Ru walking into the workroom with the sexy Andy Cohen. They were both wearing cowboy hats, which gave us a clue to the mini challenge, which was “Hay Girl, Hay.” The “gurls” had 20 minutes to get into quick drag and they would be judged on who had the most entertaining dance. The winners were Asia and The Vixen, who became captains for the Maxi Challenge: Pharmarusical. This was a lip sync, dance, production extravaganza built around fake pharmaceutical products. Alyssa Edwards was the coach and helped the teams with their choreography. The category on the runway was “Your Very Best Drag.” In the end, The Vixen’s team won and were all safe (The Vixen won a suite of jewels from Fierce Drag Jewels and a $2,000 gift card from Nails by Christy). This left the members of Asia O’hara’s team all up for elimination. The bottom two were Kalorie and Eureka, and Kalorie sashayed away.


Q: At what age did drag become an interest, and how did you pick your name?

After seeing Drag Race on TV, drag became an interest when I turned 21. I went through a couple drag personas, and then I found one that stuck. Kalorie is all about body positivity. I picked my name based on the Kardashian show.

Q: How many times did you apply to be on RuPaul’s Drag Race? How did it feel when you found out you had been chosen?

This was my first time auditioning, and I did not anticipate I would get on, so it was surreal. When I got the phone call, I was in disbelief. When I woke up the next morning, I checked my call log to be sure it was real and I hadn’t imagined the call.

Q: Is there additional pressure now that RuPaul has been on for nine seasons plus three season of All Stars?

Completely. There is a much higher standard. The fan base expects so much more! I think each year it will get harder and harder.

Q: Tell us about your RuPaul’s Drag Race experience?

It was phenomenal! It was hard, but it was such a blessing, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Q: What’s your marital status? If single, what are you looking for in a man?

I am single, and I am looking for stability and a connection! Someone who enjoys life and can smile.

Q: Who do you want to win and why?

I would love for one of the O’Hara’s to win: either Eureka, as I would love to see a big girl win, or Asia, as she is one of my idols.

Q: Tell us something people would be surprised to know about you.

I actually watch my carbs…LOL!

Q: What’s ahead for Kalorie?

I want to say everything. I want to take these 15 minutes of fame and push the boundaries and I want to push my drag to the next level each and every time.
