“Immediately after Idol, I was getting pulled in so many different directions....I was just an 18-year-old thinking he’s on top of the world, that kind of thing, and I just kind of fell flat,” he said. “I feel like this time around, given an opportunity like this, especially something I’m so passionate about, is a blessing.”

Noriega believes his  greatest advantage going into the reality competition is that Adore Delano is a “diverse character.”

“I think I’m versatile. I take good critique, I have a positive attitude, and I am not delusional,” he said. “It’s good to treat life like a party when it comes to something as huge as Drag Race...We’re all men in dresses, this is a party, this is a celebration -- don’t lose sight of that."
