FOF #2022 – Magnolia Crawford Puts Her Nose to the Grindstone

Reynolds Englehart has a nose for strange and kooky characters. He’s best known for his drag-tastic creation, Magnolia Crawford who was kicked off early on the sixth season of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Unfortunately, Magnolia Crawford was given a bad edit, and made to look like a miserable bitch. She was mercilessly teased for contouring her nose with make-up into a razor sharp point that could definitely cut a bitch if she wanted to.

Sadly, our friend Bill is moving to Los Angeles to pursue comedy. Lucky for you, he’s in the studio one more time before the big move.
