Who is Monét X Change? 'Drag Race All Star' winner helps Katie Thurston on 'The Bachelorette'
If there is one thing you can expect from a drag queen, apart from killer looks and talent, it would probably be the ability to read anyone to filth. After all, queens are known to be good at roasts.
With tensions running high on this season of 'The Bachelorette', the contestants have the chance to get shady! In this week's episode, Katie Thurston was joined by two special guests -- 'RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars' Season 5 winner Shea Coulee and 'RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars' Season 4 winner Monét X Change, as they help her judge a roast between the suitors.

Who is Monét X Change?
Monét X Change is the drag name of Kevin Bertin, born February 19, 1990 in Brooklyn, New York City. A classically trained opera singer, the drag queen studied opera performance at Westminster Choir College of Rider University.
Her drag mother is Honey Davenport, of Season 11 of 'RuPaul's Drag Race'. Season 8 winner Bob the Drag Queen is her Drag Sister. Although she doesn't use the Davenport name, she is a part of the Davenport drag family, which includes Kennedy Davenport from Season 7 and All-Stars 3, the late Sahara Davenport from Season 2 and A'Keria Chanel Davenport, along with Rajah O'Hara from Season 11 and All-Stars 6.
Monét X Change first run on 'RuPaul's Drag Race' was on Season 10, where she placed 6th overall and was Miss Congeniality of her season. She later went on to win Season 4 of All-Stars, along with Trinity The Tuck, seeing that they both were crowned as the winner, making it the first dual win on 'Drag Race'. Monet is the black queen and first Miss Congeniality who has won 'RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars'.
In a conversation with Fast Company, she spoke about how she set herself apart by being true to who she is. "Because so many people have done so many great things, the lines of authenticity and creativity are blurred a little bit. Sometimes you're so inspired by this person that you're not realizing that you're making a product that's almost too similar," she explained
"And it's like, where, but where are you? So I think that creativity in 2020 for me is defined as authenticity. No one else can be you but you. How many people are in the world? Almost a trillion? Out of one trillion people, you have a 100% chance of being yourself." she added.
Her net worth
Since her 'Drag Race' run, Monét has done quite a bit -- she is the co-host of the podcast 'Sibling Rivalry' with her drag sister Bob the Drag Queen. The duo is also releasing a cosmetic line called 'BoMo Cosmetics'. She hosts 'The X Change Rate', a talk show hosted on YouTube.
The drag queen also has a music career and recently released her single -- 'Love Like This' from her upcoming album. Seeing her body of work, it comes as no surprise that her net worth is an estimated $1.5 million by Famous Birthdays. However, Celeb Networth states that it is $5 million, implying that it is probably somewhere between those two figures.
