A brief conversation with Vanessa Vanjie Mateo

Vanessa Vanjie Mateo was the first to sashay away on this historic season of "Drag Race."

This year RuPaul’s Drag Race reached a milestone most series fail to accomplish, and that is to have lasted 10 seasons. And each year seems to be gaining even more viewers than the last.

So, to be a contestant on this historic moment in television history is something to be proud of. Still, no one wants to be the first queen on the chopping block, or worse sent home.
