The Clown:
Your emcee Intensive Claire is a real life nurse during the day- which is good because her looks are so sickening you are gonna need some care. She's an emcee about town turning looks from Alien to Show girl- careful her tongue is dirty and her care intense.

The Art:
This art queen Punky Pebbles is like a drawing come to life. Like a super hero/super villian/super sexpot come to life. She's on the edge of edgey and busty but not busted.

The Triple:
TRIPLE THREAT TRIPLE THREAT TRIPLE THREAT. Miss Rahni, sings, dances and fierces her way down the runways of our hearts.

The Snack:
Oh girl, you hungry? Do you want some of these spicy cheetos? Do you want some of this chocolate milk? Gummy Sharks? Hershey Bar? Oh girl, we got plenty of Snaxx and she tastes goooood.

The Brows:
Frida K-Hole is a unibrowed creature serving art, glam, drama & camp. She will bewitch you with her look, slay u with her lip synch & sometimes even make you think, or at least go "huh?"
