“RuPaul’s Drag Race” season 10 contestant Monét X Change offered behind-the-scenes commentary for a segment on the stigma against drag on “What Would You Do?”
The hidden camera show puts unsuspecting people in difficult social situations to test how they react. In this segment, a drag performer meets their parents for lunch dressed in full drag. The parents are embarrassed and fellow diners’ reactions are examined. In one scene, a man goes out of his way to tell the performer they look beautiful. In another scene, an older couple agree with the parents that they wouldn’t be happy if their son arrived to lunch in drag either. It’s a reaction that X Change tells ABC news correspondent John Quiñones is common.
Other scenarios addressed this episode include a waitress putting up with a customer’s harrassment for tip money, three people of different races stealing from a tip jar and a woman turning a coffee shop into her personal office.
“What Would You Do?” airs on Friday, June 29 at 9 p.m. on ABC.
