About the Queen: Alexis Mateo
Alexis Mateo (Alexis Mateo Pacheco) is a consistent pageant queen from Puerto Rico. She made her way to third place in RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 3. Alexis Mateo now resides in the United States, making her home base in Florida. Alexis’s catchphrase from Season 3 was “Bam!”.
Alexis Mateo may have been accused of showing off “strip hop” in the RuPaul-a-Palooza challenge, but was the only one who added her own flavour with a rap. Alexis also rocked the house with her version of a pregnant lesbian Alicia Keys in the Snatch Game episode. She was convincing enough to make Amber Rose think twice.
RuPaul’s Hair Extravaganza found Alexis in the bottom two lip syncing against Shangela. Her performance of Even Angels by Fantasia Barrino was one of her greatest successes, sending Shangela sashaying away. Manila Luzon described the performance as “timeless and beautiful”.
Alexis had issues with her weight and was criticized for creating looks that made her look bulky and/or mal proportioned. Michelle Visage was her greatest critic, once describing Alexis Mateo as resembling Beetlejuice.
The Make Dat Money episode was nearly the end of the road for Alexis Mateo, when she began to crumble under the stress. Eventually pulling through her issues, this dip in nerve was felt on the runway.
Alexis Mateo fell in the bottom (9th position) we measure her charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent. In our rankings of the Drag Race All Stars, Alexis scored 11 out of 20.
