Nymphia Wind is teasing her villain era.

In her cover interview for GAY TIMES, the Drag Race champion seemingly confirmed that she is down to compete on another season (All Winners 2?!), where she will fully showcase her shady personality.

Speaking with Emmy-nominated comedian Joel Kim Booster, who has become close friends with the leader of the ‘Banana Believers’ since appearing as a guest judge, Nymphia reveals: “If I had the chance to do any sort of All Stars, I feel like I would go in and be more of an absolute C-U-N-T.

“The first time around, I was getting used to what was happening. I was stressed out and forgot to throw shade because I was in the confessional like, ‘I don’t know what to say, help me!’ Now I know the format, I’ll be more comfortable to talk shit.”

Nymphia memorably defeated Sapphira Cristál and Plane Jane on the 16th season of the series earlier this year, making herstory in the process as the OG franchise’s first East Asian winner.

Her win was celebrated by the likes of Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga and Kylie Minogue, with the latter praising her ‘Padam Padam’ lip-sync for the crown as “amazing”.

With her historic achievement, Nymphia shares that the response from the East Asian community has been “fulfilling”: “All sorts of Asians come up to me, every Asian skin tone saying, ‘Thank you for representing us.’ Us, you know?

“It’s so heartwarming to see that I, as Nymphia, was able to provide this representation for them.”

In the interview, Nymphia also discusses how she’s adjusting to life post-Drag Race, her plans to ‘unify the planet’ and – this bit is important – whether or not her inbox has been flooded with “dick pics”.

She also bonds with Joel, the star of Loot and mastermind of Fire Island, over their shared experience as East Asian stars in the spotlight. You can read the full interview here.
