Milwaukee-born drag queen Trixie Mattel achieved international notoriety as a contestant on season seven of RuPaul‘s Drag Race, where she finished in sixth place. Since the reality show put her on the map in 2015, she’s kept busy performing throughout the world, acting (including a cameo on FX’s American Horror Story), releasing a country album, and co-hosting The Trixie & Katya Show on the Viceland network.

Though she’s made moves to take over the world in a variety of performance mediums, Mattel has returned to where it all started to see if she can improve her reality show fate. She’s currently being featured on the third season of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, competing against season one winner BeBe Zahara Benet and eight other contestants. Last night, VH1 aired the second episode of the season. Mattel performed a Dolly Parton song and turned in what Vulture calls the quote of the week. More importantly, she survived to compete for another week. With two contestants now gone, Mattel is one of just eight left.

You can watch her compete in RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars every Thursday night at 7 CST on VH1.
