Meet RuPaul's Drag Race's New, Bulgier Pit Crew
By Stacy Lambe
Miles Davis Moody
Moody is the other newcomer making the bulges bigger on set. However, he was a Pit Crew member once before when the show invited him and several of Andrew Christian's hottest underwear models to participate in a mini-challenge. Moody also worked his stuff in several music videos. From Jennifer Hudson ("Where You At") to RuPaul ("Peanut Butter," "Lick It Lollipop"), music's fiercest songstresses have taken notice.
What's it like being on set? Does it ever get cold?
Moody: It's amazing being on set. You really get a behind the scenes look at how the show is put together. The most exciting part is seeing Ru though. He's so electric and full of good energy. Does it get cold? Yes! At times it does, especially when the contestants are in make-up (something's gotta keep them from melting!) but cold doesn't always bode well for the Pit Crew because we are barely clothed and we have to make a good, ahem, showing.
Do you have a favorite contestant from this season?
I try to take a diplomatic approach because we're there as sexy man decoration. We bring the smiles. If I were one of the queens, I wouldn't want to be looking across the room at the Pit Crew knowing we are playing sides. So if there was any proclivity towards one or the other I would try to hide it, because I'm a professional goddammit!
Would you ever do drag?
I would totally do it. I love transformation. I've told a couple of the goils (this season) and past that I would let them kidnap me, beat my face for filth and then have a night out on the town and let people figure it out. It's amazing, the feeling of standing next to people you know very well and they are giving you an entirely new energy because they have no clue who you are. I don't think doing drag takes anything away from your identity as a man. Some of my good friends have done it, gay and straight and I applaud anyone with the guts to really go outside their comfort zone. You only live once and life is all about experiences.
What's your favorite junk food?
All of it! Pizza. I'm a total pizza whore. Sometimes I love chocolate. Oh, pastries. Pastries are gooooooood. Erase all that, my inner fat girl took over my keyboard. I only eat chicken and veggies.
What do you do outside of the show?
I work in commercial casting, I host nightclub parties in West Hollywood, Silverlake and Downtown (one with fellow Pit Crew member Shawn Morales). Per Willam of season 4, I'm "the male Melyssa Ford," as I've appeared in music videos for Jennifer Hudson, DWV ("Chow Down," "Boy Is A Bottom"), Jonny McGovern ("Dickmatized") and RuPaul.
