Anetra was cast for and competed in the fifteenth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. She won three challenges and placed in the final two, finishing as runner-up to Sasha Colby. One of the challenges Anetra won was the talent show. Her performance included “duck-walking, taekwondo moves, and a fierce original song”, according to Pride.com’s Bernardo Sim. The song was the first Anetra ever recorded. Anetra’s performance became “the most-viewed cross-platform scene ever published to RuPaul’s Drag Race social media accounts with over 13.1 million views across Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, YouTube shorts, and Twitter”. This performance also made her the queen with the biggest amount of growth on social media from Season 15, gaining more than 500,000 followers on Instagram while the season was airing. Stephen Daw of Billboard called her performance “iconic”, and Charlie Duncan of PinkNews said the song’s phrase “walk that fucking duck” is “set to be the catchphrase that will define season 15”. Sam Damshenas of Gay Times wrote, “Anetra’s martial arts lip-sync extravaganza has been hailed as one of the best talent show performances in Drag Race herstory.” Screen Rant’s Michelle Konopka Alonzo included Anetra in a list of 15 “queens who made amazing first impressions” on Drag Race and said she “quickly became a fan favorite and internet sensation after the premiere”.
