Jan (Sport)

Jan Sport is a New York-based performer and member of the drag trio Stephanie’s Child, however, on the show she will be going as “Jan” so as not to get in trouble over copyright issues. She says this minor change is perfectly fine though as she also loves Jan Brady from The Brady Bunch. 

Reddit actually managed to predict all but two of the Drag Race season 12 girls by checking the social media upload dates of well-known queens from across America. The only two that were not predicted were Heidi N Closet and Aiden Zhane.
