Burkhart's amped up its Femme Fatale cast on Friday by adding the drag talents of "RuPaul's Drag Race" competitor Naysha Lopez.
The Chicago queen, who finished in 9th place on Season 8 of "RuPaul's Drag Race," competed last season against two performers with Atlanta ties – Dax Exclamationpoint and Bob the Drag Queen. Dax was booted in episode 2, while Bob went on to claim the crown.
On Friday, she joined a lineup that included hosts Shavonna B. Brooks and Destiny Brooks, along with Phoenix, Alissah Brooks, Taejah Thomas and Myah Ross Monroe.
Lopez is now among the long list of "Drag Race" queens that later made appearances at Burkhart's. In March, Season 3 winner Raja performed. "Drag Race" favorites Jasmine Masters and Jujubee joined the cast in January.
