What is Jiggly Caliente's net worth? 'RPDR' queen hosted 1st all-trans talk show
After her season 4 run, Jiggly Caliente is back to snatch the crown and make her way to the 'Drag Race' hall of fame
'RuPaul's Drag Race' is easily one of the most competitive reality shows out there. Not only do the contestants have to act, sing and dance, but also put together stunning looks, and often it's more than just one per episode. Staring on the show is definitely not for anyone, but for the queens that make it on, they don't crack easily under pressure. While the general seasons are as tough as they get, 'All Stars' proves that it is no cake-walk, seeing that contestants are all former alumni. And, for 'All Stars' Season 6, the stakes are higher than ever, with queens like Jiggly Caliente back on the scene!
Season 13 saw queens Symone, Rose, Kandy Muse and Gottmik make it to the top. Now, with 'All Stars' Season 6 here, it's time to see what the past queens have in store for fans!

Who is Jiggly Caliente?
Bianca Castro is a trans woman, who goes by the stage name Jiggly Caliente. She was on the fourth season of 'RuPaul's Drag Race' and is even part of the hit FX series, 'Pose'. She was born in Laguna, Philippines, and moved to the US in 1991 at age 10 with her mother and brother.
Her drag mother is Chevelle Brooks, however, she did not take her last name as her own drag name. Instead, she went with Caliente. Her name, Jiggly, is inspired by the Pokemon, Jigglypuff. Apart from being vocal about her identity as a trans-woman, she has also been proud of her Filipino heritage.
"I think it is high time that the Philippines gets its own franchise of 'RuPaul's Drag Race'. I feel like the Filipino drag community is so diverse and so eclectic and they're just so talented," Caliente said while talking to CNN Philippines. "The talents of the Filipinos are insane so if I could represent here on the world stage of 'RuPaul's Drag Race', I think the Philippines should have their own because they have so many amazing, talented queens," she added.
Her net worth
As reported by Famous Birthdays, Caliente's net worth is currently $1.5 million. Apart from her 'Drag Race' appearances, she's gone on to be a part of a number of works.
