Charo first appeared on TV in the 1960s, and she holds the record for having appeared on The Love Boat more than any other star. She's long maintained that her stated date of birth was incorrect. Her official birth certificate in Spain states 1931, but other documents in the US, indicate she was born in 1941. Charo persuaded a US court to decree 1951 as her official birth year. She's appeared as the entertainer aboard Royal Caribbean Explorer of the Seas and Disney Magic’s Eastbound TransAtlantic. She had her own show, Charo in Concert: A Musical Sensation, at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas. She’s been a guest judge on Ru Paul’s Drag U. and was a cast member on The Surreal Life.
