Jujubee is probably one of the most popular contestants on RuPaul’s Drag Race. She’s a fierce, sassy package that gave all sorts of great face during the competition. While she did have to lip-synch for her life on RuPaul’s All Stars Drag Race, a surprise save from RuPaul herself allowed for 4 finalists. Jujubee was kind enough this Thanksgiving week to take some time to respond to some of our questions about her experience.
CGM Were you surprised that Ru allowed for 4 finalists and didn’t send either of you home?
Jujubee: I was shocked Ru kept us both. Not because I think either of us deserved to leave, but the rules were set in place and only MAMA can break them!
CGM This last elimination was very emotional for you and Raven. Did it make things easier for the finale challenge since you knew that was the end of the road for all of you?
Jujubee: The last elimination was definitely something that prepared me for the finale challenge. It didn’t make it easier, though. Drag Race herstory says the finale challenge is ALWAYS crazy FIERCE!
CGM You are touring all over the country right now. Is this a pretty typical schedule for you and has it increased since being on Drag Race and then All Stars?
Jujubee: Before RuPaul’s Drag Race, I worked as a full-time makeup artist. After the exposure that the competition gave me, I have been traveling and touring since! I am definitely getting a lot busier. My 2013 schedule will be available very soon! Keep checking my website www.jujubeeonline.com
