Vanessa Vanjie Mateo from RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 10 is back to prove that she deserves a second chance. Vanjie Mateo was sent home during week 1 of Season 10, but when she exited the stage after being eliminated, she kept walking backward, saying “Miss Vanjie” repeatedly.

She quickly became a viral queen for her hilarious exit and her Season 10 co-stars continued to refer to her throughout the season. Even the official RuPaul’s Drag Race Twitter account shared her exit on social media.

Even though Vanessa Vanjie Mateo only starred on a single episode, she clearly made an impact. Her exit went viral and RuPaul decided to invite her back for Season 11.
