As has been said multiple times before: at least two shows are going on in any given season of RuPaul's Drag Race. On one hand, there's RuPaul's Drag Race the pageant, and on the other, there's RuPaul's Drag Race the reality show. In a good season, the two overlap and we all fall in love with the queens who do well in the competition. But by the nature of the business, it's generally the queen who stands out on the reality television side that has the most lasting careers. On All Stars 5, the two versions of the show seem to overlap heavily.
Of the seasons top-performing queens are Jujubee and Shea Couleé. And while Couleé is bringing a level of honesty with a dash of comedy to her confessionals, it's Jujubee who is pulling out ahead as the season's Queen of the Confessional. If we were allowed to crown the season's narrator, it's going to Jujubee hands down. Now, a new clip from this week's episode premiere exclusively on Out, shows just the latest example.
This week on the Main Stage, contestants will compete in The Charles Family Backyard Ball. Essentially a multi-look design challenge, queens have to create their own looks from things they might find in someone's yard. This proves a possible issue for Jujubee who isn't a sewer.
"You know what, I am so confident in this challenge, oooh, I am going to take this!" she says excitedly in the clip. "Bitch I am lying because I'm scared. I am going to poop myself because this is terrifying. That's the honest truth."
Thankfully, though Couleé is playing to win, she truly wants to win because she's the best and not just on a technicality. So, the giving person that she is, she channels her design background and gives Jujubee a few tips. It's a collaborative, sisterly note that leagues away from how the previous episode ended.
