Chad grew up in San Diego. When he started his drag career, he went under the name “Brigitte Love”, but eventually started to use his real name when working in Las Vegas, as during a show entitled “An Evening at La Cage”, it was required that they use male stage names which resulted in him returning to using Chad Michaels. His net worth started to increase as more opportunities opened up for him. In 2010, he competed in the first California Entertainer of the Year pageant, in which he placed first alternate to the winner Shangela.

Michaels would eventually join the fourth season of Logo TV’s “RuPaul’s Drag Race” and would find success in it, getting a runner-up position. During the first season of “RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars” he joined once more, and finally won the competition against other previous competitors of “Drag Race” – 12 drag queens joined the competition and he ended up partnering with Shannel and going with the team name “Shad”. He then joined the “Dreamgirls Revue” of which he is a producer as well as performer, which is now California’s longest running female impersonation show. He is joined by other contestants from “Drag Race” including Raja, Morgan McMichaels, Detox, and Venus D-Lite.
