Jujubee (LO: ຈູຈູບີ)[1] is the stage name of Airline Inthyrath (LO: ແອລາຍ ອິນທິຣາດ),[1] a professional drag performer, makeup artist, singer, and comedian from Boston, Massachusetts. She is best known for being a contestant on Season 2 of RuPaul's Drag Race. Her drag mother is Karisma Geneva Jackson-Tae.

She is heavily known as a fan-favorite and is remembered for her friendship with fellow Season 2 alumni, Raven. After Jujubee placed third in the second season, she returned to compete on All Stars 1, paired with Raven. Jujubee later placed in third/fourth place along with Shannel, while Raven placed second to Chad Michaels.

On May 8, 2020, it was announced that she would be competing in All Stars 5. Throughout the season, she consistently got positive critiques, contrasting heavily with her performance on Season 2 and All Stars 1. She finished the season as a runner-up alongside fellow competitor Miz Cracker, both losing to Shea Couleé.

On November 10, 2021, it was announced that she would be competing in Queen of the Universe, where she was among the first group eliminated, finishing between 10th-14th.

On January 7, 2022, it was announched that she would be competing on RuPaul's Drag Race UK vs. The World, vying for title of Queen of the World. This makes Jujubee the queen to appear on the most seasons of Drag Race as a contestant, having featured four times.


Drag Name Origin

Her drag mother, Karisma Geneva Jackson-Tae, proclaimed that Jujubee will be her name, when she did an amateur competition and won. It turned out to be the fruit jujube. She didn’t like the name, but kept it because of its significance to Karisma.

Legacy

Following the show, Jujubee has become one of the most popular Drag Race alumni. She appeared in the music video for RuPaul's song "Jealous of My Boogie", alongside fellow season two contestants Raven and Tyra Sanchez. She also was nominated for a NewNowNext award in 2010 for "Most Addictive Reality Star".

Jujubee has been a professor on all three seasons of RuPaul's Drag U, and has appeared a total of ten times, tying with season two contestant Raven. Her first win was in Episode 8 of Season 1 with a makeover of actress Charlene Tilton, who played Lucy Ewing on the TV series Dallas. Tilton's drag name was Lisa Mercedes. In season two, her second win was with nurse Lanell under the name of Angel Esprit.

In 2012, Jujubee was announced as one of the twelve contestants of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars. In the pair selection, she and fellow season two queen Raven picked each other as partners and chose the team name "Rujubee" and placed 3rd/4th with Shannel.

In 2020, Jujubee was announced as one of the ten contestants of All Stars 5, returning for a third time with fellow All Stars 1 alumni Alexis Mateo. During the season, she won her first challenge in her entire Drag Race career, ultimately placing 2nd/3rd with Miz Cracker.
