Before she was America’s Next Drag Superstar, Jinkx Monsoon’s biggest acting accomplishment was being an extra on the 1990s sitcom Full House. Now, Jinkx is now a household name to drag queen fans and RuPaul’s Drag Race fanatics everywhere. Jerick Hoffer, Jinkx’s boy-half, was once a narcoleptic street artist and corn-dog-eating world-wanderer.
Fun Fact: Although Jinkx now calls Seattle home, she once lived in the hipster capitol of the world: Portland, Oregon. (We don’t think that would make BenDeLaCreme very happy… at least not according to her comments on the “Capitol Hill” web series!)
Check out this pre-Jinkx and Drag Race documentary to see what she was like before she became Jinkx Monsoon.
