Brian McCook spent his childhood with two siblings in his hometown, where he matriculated from Marlborough High School, after which he enrolled at Massachusetts College of Art and Design. There, he was a student of video and performance art in the Studio for Interrelated Media (SIM) program. At that time, he created his alter-ego Yekaterina ‘Katya’ Petrovna Zamolodchikova, who supposedly hails from Russia.

Thus, his professional career began in 2006, when he made his drag debut appearance under his stage name at a gay nightclub, which marked the beginning of an increase of his net worth. During his performance, he sang Russian songs of such musicians and bands as t.A.T.u., Alla Pugacheva, and Glukoza, among many others. Subsequently, he was hired to work as a host of the monthly drag show entitled “Perestroika” at the Jacques Cabaret, adding a considerable amount to his net worth.

Afterwards, he decided to audition for the reality competition series “RuPaul’s Drag Race”, but he was rejected four times, until the fifth time when he became one of the official cast members on the show in its seventh season, in 2015, since when his career as a drag queen has only gone upwards, as well as his popularity and net worth; he was eliminated in episode 11 and he finished on the fifth place, but during the season, Katya was named Miss Congeniality. Moreover, he also appeared in another reality competition series entitled “RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars”, finishing as the runner-up, when he was defeated by Alaska Thunderfuck. This contributed a lot to his net worth.

Apart from his career on the screen, Katya also became known as a social media personality, who created his official YouTube channel under the username WeLoveKatya, on which he uploads his own web series, such as “Help Me, I’m Dying”, “RuGRETs”, “Drag 101”, etc. Most recently, he co-created the web series “The Trixie & Katya Show”, along with Trixie Mattel, which will be aired in late 2017. His net worth is certainly rising.

When it comes to speak about his personal life, he is an openly gay, while he characterizes his alter-ego Katya as a bisexual. His current residence is in Los Angeles, California. In spare time, he is very active across many of the most popular social media platforms, including his official Instagram and Twitter accounts.
