About the Queen: Mimi Imfurst

Mimi Imfurst (Braden Chapman) was a controversial queen of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 3. Mimi is best remembered for picking up India Ferrah during their lip sync for your life performance.

Mimi is a member of XELLE is a singing group made with fellow drag performers JC Cassis and Rony Goffer. Their debut EP Queens, is available on iTunes.


Mimi has a commitment to comedy and camp without apology. She has no problem being a hot mess if it gets her a laugh. Mimi showed vulnerability early in the first challenge, and accepted help from Mariah. At least she knew when to accept help when she needed it.


Mimi Imfurst showboated and overacted her way through the Queens in Space challenge. After framing herself as an owner of an acting company, Mimi did not deliver the level of professionalism that one would expect.

Mimi tried too hard again to create a memorable character in the Totally Leotarded challenge. The irritating voice of the character she created is unforgettable, but not someone that translated into sales realness. Add in the terrible workout look from the mini challenge and the way she attacked India Ferrah during the lip sync sent her home.

Mimi Imfurst shared the seventh position with Chad Michaels when we measure her charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent. In our rankings of the Drag Race All Stars, Mimi Imfurst scored 14 out of 20.
