Trixie Mattel says she’d never do Drag Race All Star Winners as it’s ‘too scary’

Trixie Mattel confessed she would “never” compete to Drag Race All Star All Winners because she couldn’t “do better drag” than her competitors.

Drag royalty Trixie – whose real name is Brian Firkus – has explained the reason behind why she won’t be strutting down RuPaul’s Drag Race runway for the new spin-off series set to take place next Friday (May 20).

The blonde bombshell shot to fame back in 2018 after she was crowned the winner of the third season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars after missing out on the crown during the seventh series of the original show in 2015.

Set to take part in the series are previous winners Jaida Essence Hall, Jinkz Monsoon, Monet X Change, Raja, Shea Coulee, Trinity The Tuck, The Vivienne and Yvie Oddly.

But as the Wisconsin native prepares to finish the final leg of her UK tour for postponed 2020 tour, Trixie has revealed that despite being unable to compete because of her busy schedule, she had no intention of taking part in the show entirely.

In an exclusive interview with Daily Star, the social media star confessed it was “no secret” that she was going to turn down her appearance on the show when TV bosses offered her a position on the show.

She told us: “I mean it’s no secret – I've said it a million times. Even if I was sitting at home doing nothing, I wouldn’t do it [Drag Race All Stars].

“It’s too scary [and] I don’t feel I excel in that environment. I'm really proud of what I did so I don’t think I could do better drag than that.

“I mean, honestly, everyone’s so good at drag now that I don’t even aspire [to compete].”

The starlet went on to confess how her act has changed dramatically since she won the show more than four years ago and now considers herself more of an artist as well as a drag queen.

She went on to say: “I was watching the trailer for All Winners All Stars and I was like, ‘I wouldn’t do anything this good on the show.’

“I mean I like the way I dress but like expensive, jaw dropping mega outfits is not my interest.”

One opportunity the singer was hugely disappointed when she was unable to take part in the RuPaul Drag Race review show, Pit Stop, which she has hosted for many years.

Trixie added: “I really wanted to do the Pit Stop for all-winners but it didn’t work with my schedule.

“I had to take off last year for winners but when I left my one condition was: You should hire Monet and I really want to be asked to do winners but I couldn’t do it. Pit Stop is my Drag Race.”

Trixie Mattel is set to air the renovation process of her seven-unit motel in her new TV series Trixie Motel on Discovery+ which is set to premier on June 3.
