According to popular opinion, social media might be a safe haven for keyboard warriors but it has also grown to be a money-making machine. Of course, to be able to turn every post into money, one would have to be well versed with the tricks of the trade. Not every content goes viral or garners millions of likes.
But drag queen Bianca Del Rio has everything under control. The Season 6 winner of 'RuPaul's Drag Race' is a social media queen as well. She is aware of her personality, the people who love her, what kind of content is trending and what would be appreciated by her followers. And that explains her immense and loyal fan following on Instagram. She has 2.2M followers on the photo-blogging site and she knows how to make money off of it too. She charges an estimated $7,378 per post, which makes her the topper on 'RuPaul's Drag Race' rich list.
A research by Slots Up has come up with a few other names who have successfully made it to the list as well. Not surprisingly, Trixie Mattel comes a close second with $7,055 per post. Taking third position is Adore Delano with $6,909 per post. Katya Zamolodchikova and Kim Chi rake in $6,550 and $6,355, respectively. While Violet Chachki earns $6,040 from each of her posts. Alyssa Edwards, Sasha Velour, Alaska and Aquari earn approximately $5,000 plus per post.
Bianca deserves to be on the top of this list not only because of her incredible and flawless performances on 'RuPaul's Drag Race' but also because she is fearless. Bianca is honest and never shies away from speaking her mind, albeit with a good dose of humor. And that is exactly what makes her Instagram feed so enjoyable.
"Everything is not a political statement. Everything is not about being an advocate. Sometimes it's just pure entertainment," she told BBC ahead of her Wembley Arena performance. It was one of the biggest gigs for Bianca and the first time for her. Yet, she was confident and her jokes were received well.
