Kameron Michaels was a finalist on the tenth season of RuPaul's Drag Race.

Drag Name Origin

She chose Kameron because it sounds androgynous, as she did not want an overly-feminine name. Her last name has no association with Chad Michaels. Rather, she chose it because it sounded strong and no other drag queen in Nashville had taken the name.[1]
