Vanessa Vanjie Mateo is the stage name of Jose Cancel,[1] an American drag performer, most known for placing 14th on the tenth season of RuPaul's Drag Race.

Early Life[edit]

Cancel was born on October 3, 1991 and is of Puerto Rican descent. He started doing drag when Drag Race season three and all stars one alumni Alexis Mateo, had him as one of his backup dancers.[2][3]

Drag Race and viral status[edit]

Vanessa Vanjie Mateo was announced as one of the fourteen contestants competing for the crown on the tenth season of RuPaul's Drag Race, which premiered on March 22, 2018.[4] He was eliminated in the first episode, after lip syncing to Christina Aguilera's "Ain't No Other Man" against competitor Kalorie Karbdashian Williams, while Aguilera was the guest judge.[5]

Right before he was sent away from the main stage, his parting words "Miss Vanjie, Miss Vanjie, Miss Vanjie" became an internet meme. "Miss Vanjie" was tweeted by many, including RuPaul's Drag Race: All Stars winner Trixie Mattel, as well as Kathy Griffin. The meme also was edited into clips of various movies shows, including The Simpsons, Pokemon and The Shining.[6]
