DRAG Race’s Bianca Del Rio has joked how Simon Cowell looks like a “melted candle” and he needs to “get a decent surgeon”.
The drag queen rose to fame after winning the sixth series of the hit American reality show fronted by RuPaul.
Speaking exclusively to The Sun Online, Bianca admitted she’d love to go from being a contestant on a reality show to a judge, and wouldn’t be against signing up to a British programme like Britain’s Got Talent.
She said: “Of course I could do that. I could sit next to Simon Cowell, no problem.
“As long as I don’t have to go to his plastic surgeon I will be fine. He looks like a melted candle.”
Simon, 59, is head judge on the ITV show, and has showed off his incredible weight loss on the recent BGT Champions series.
But pulling no punches, sharp tongued Bianca continued: “That’s not losing weight. That’s losing your damn mind.
“He has got enough money, go to a decent surgeon. He should go to Sharon Osbourne’s surgeon.
“She looks good. I mean, she wasn’t pretty to begin with so she really looks good now.”
But all jokes aside, she admitted she “never turns anything down” when it comes to work, saying: “If it works schedule wise, I will do it. I am not picky!”
Bianca isn’t bitter that Drag Race judge Michelle Visage, 50, was signed up for Strictly Come Dancing though.
Michelle judged Bianca every week on Drag Race, but the star is looking forward to seeing the tables turned on the BBC One dancing show.
She said: “It’s brilliant that she has gotten it. I am excited to see what she is going to do.
“I never thought about doing it, it’s quite a daunting task. But I am looking forward to seeing the magic.
“Michelle and I are friends and I think it will be interesting to see the queen of judging everyone else now being judged. That’s going to be good television.”
Sadly Bianca will have to watch Michelle’s efforts on catch up, as she’ll be too busy performing for her adoring crowds at Wembley Arena on Saturday night, the first Drag Queen to do so.

She said: “It’s wild. It blows my mind. I mean, what’s left of my mind.
“I get recognised a lot more in the UK now. I am not hounded by the press but people certainly recognise me out of drag now, thanks to the television show.
“For years, nobody knew what I looked like as a boy.
“Usually people are very pleasant but there is always some drunk b*****d.
“I am always myself, so if you are drunk and a handful, I will always respond to you in the same manner.”
