That even lead her to take a picture with a fan’s amputated, freeze-dried leg during a meet and greet. Here’s what we know about that moment.
Katya took a picture with a fan’s leg/foot
Your dad just calls her Katya. This performer appeared on RuPaul’s Drag Race season 7 and All-Stars 2. Since then, she’s become a fan favorite, performing around the world, oftentimes doing meet and greets.
Prior to a meet-up, one fan reached out to Katya, sharing that their foot and part of their leg was amputated and they still had it. If they brought the leg to a meet and greet, would Katya take a picture with it?
“I received that email. What an email! I’ll be in touch with you about what to do with ‘The Leg.’ Xo. Oh, trust me that email really stood out, for sure. (Get it? Because of the leg,)” the drag performer tweeted.
After a number of fans asked for a followup regarding the “leg picture,” Katya posted the picture to Twitter. The tweet earned thousands of retweets and over 30 thousand likes, most fans wondering how they even got that into the meet and greet venue.
Katya also has a collection of teeth, showcased during ‘UNHhhh’
She may be known for her love of Russia, but Katya’s really into anything unique and weird. During one episode of the World of Wonder series, UNHhhh, this drag performer talked to Trixie Mattel about teeth. That eventually lead to her whipping out a little packet of human teeth, gifted to her by a fan.
“Wisdom teeth, mama,” Katya said while plopping one into Trixie’s hand. Trixie then asked fans to stop giving the two of them body parts but Katya was quick to interject, saying “no, no, no, I would like them, please give them to me.”
“She asked me before, she was like ‘I have some, I have my teeth, would you?’ And I was like, ‘absolutely, give them to me,” Katya said of her collection of wisdom teeth.
Katya Zamolodchikova definitely brings the ‘uniqueness’ to ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’
Aside from taking pictures with fans, this performer partnered with Trixie Mattel and Netflix for the YouTube reaction series, I Like to Watch. The drag queens also recently released a best-selling book, Trixie and Katya’s Guide to Modern Womanhood, which is now available online and in bookstores.
Fans can see Katya with Trixie Mattel during their World of Wonder series, UNHhhh. New episodes premiere on the streaming platform WOWPresents Plus, as well as the production company’s YouTube channel.
