    Are any of them millionaires?

    I can guess who get the most regular decent gigs, but in terms of net worth and social media power I'd love to see who has benefited the most.

    I think millionaires is probably pushing it, isn't it? Looking at some of the gigs Alaska does (and surely she must be up there with the very most successful), I wouldn't have thought she was loaded. Although she clearly doesn't seem to mind hard work and travel.

    Bianca must be the most successful though, I'd have thought. You always get the impression she's outside of the orbit of the others.

    Katya raised a ton of money for her one woman show (she asked for 30k and got over 60).

    Trixie must be doing ok with the album sales.

    I imagine Jinkx must be doing pretty well. Or at least she manages to get shows of her own touring, rather than a lot of the others who seem to be more dependent on each other and being part of a group to tour.

    Yeah, pretty sure Willam gets a lot of work.

    I imagine the ad revenues for Unhhhh have given Trixie more than the album sales have.

    Bianca by far I would think. The appearances, the gigs, the TV deals. Don't know about millionaire though.

    I have a feeling Alaska could surpass her though. She seems the more 'mainstream' queen to me.

    No definitive answer.

    Surely Chad is up there too. Not necessarily in terms of fanbase or social media following, but he's absolutely at the top of his chosen profession.

    What does Chad do these days? He has no presence online and doesn't go on tours. If hosting a nightclub makes you rich then surely Morgan would be richer.

    I follow quite a lot of Drag Race in instagram and facebook. I don't think I've ever seen Chad mentioned once.

    Chad is finally coming to the UK next year for some kind of circus tour.

    I think the season 6 queens have it in terms of success - Bianca, Adore and Courtney must be up there with Alaska and Willam

    Though if I would for ANY QUEEN Ms TKB would probably be in the top 10 (of her season)

    I have JUST met Courtney who is an utter sweetheart as always and in my top 3 of all time.

    She's SURELY raking it in.

    She was unfairly branded as a bitch on her season, I feel.

    Was Courtney branded a bitch? I only remember the Joslyn Fox business, but to be honest, it's a credit to her that she didn't slap her.

    I always thought they never did that much money and that their lifestyle and expenses must be rather draining.

    Ru hates Courtney APPARENTLY.

    Something to do with TRANNYGATE it seems.

    She's the only the queen who's not been on "What's The Tee" which probably SAYS IT ALL.

    Ru's got a NERVE calling people offended by the word snowflakes if that's how she's reacted to Courtney disagreeing with her!

    Basically just the criticism Ru got for using that word.
