The most notorious “RuPaul’s Drag Race” queens just keep on coming. On Wednesday, that meant the show’s love-to-hate Willam Belli serving face, body and attitude to the Fantasy Girls crowd at Jungle.

With a direct line to the talent from Logo’s hit reality competition as former contestants themselves, Fantasy Girls organizer Phoenix, host Nicole Paige Brooks and cast member Mariah Balenciaga took full advantage of their connections to bring Willam to “Drag Race’s” rabid gay Atlanta fans.

Willam promised us in a hilarious, revealing interview before the show that she’d let the bitches have it. That she did. The “Chow Down on Chick-fil-A” queen showed off her look as well as a talent for hamming it up and making people laugh.

The Fantasy Girls themselves didn’t let anyone down, either. The show’s opening number found the full cast channeling “Chicago” for “He Had It Coming,” then individual performances got the audience juiced for Willam to take the stage. The appearance follows “RuPaul’s Drag Race” alums Sharon Needles (keep up) and Latrice Royale (view photos) as the most recent guests of the monthly performance night.
