Vivacious was announced to be on the sixth season of RuPaul's Drag Race in 2014.[4] She "made one of the most unforgettable first episode entrances in Drag Race herstory",[2] according to The Advocate, by wearing an outfit featuring a second head Vivacious called Ornacia.[6][7][8] In 2015, Sadie Gennis of TV Guide ranked Vivacious number 22 in her list of "The 24 Best RuPaul's Drag Race Entrances of All Time",[9] and Time Out's Ethan LaCroix and Jillian Anthony ranked her number eleven on their list of the best Drag Race contestants from New York City.[10] Vivacious ranked number 91 in Vulture's list of "The 100 Greatest RuPaul's Drag Race Looks of All Time".[11] She was eliminated in the third episode of the show, after losing a lip sync to "Shake It Up" by Selena Gomez against April Carrión.[12][13][14] Vivacious's Ornacia head was referenced in an episode of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 3.[15]

She was one of 30 drag queens featured in Miley Cyrus' performance of "Dooo It!" at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards.[16] She was one of several drag queens appearing in Katy Perry's performance of "Swish Swish" on Saturday Night Live in May 2017.[17][18][19] She was featured in two videos for Elle's YouTube channel, doing a reverse drag transformation and giving advice to a child drag queen in 2017.[20][21]
