Manila Luzon, a 28-year-old contestant on the third season of RuPaul's Drag Race, coaches an aspiring drag queen on Friday's episode of MTV's self-improvement reality series MADE #DreamBigger.
On the reality show about making dreams come true, 20-year-old Richard Figueroa meets his idol, drag superstar Manila Luzon, who returns to compete as one of the 12 past Drag Race contestants set to appear October 22 in RuPaul's All Stars Drag Race.
Figueroa says he no longer wants to be the shy guy that he was in high school and is ready to unleash his alter ego, Cassandra Fuego.
“During his journey, he must find out if big hair and high hells will give him the confidence he needs to strut his stuff in front of thousands of people,” the show's description reads.
Luzon, real name Karl Westerberg, recently lost his boyfriend Antoine Ashley. Ashley competed on the second season of RuPaul's Drag Race under the name Sahara Davenport. According to his family, he died of heart failure at the age of 27.
While MTV's MADE focused on high school teens, #DreamBigger includes college students and young adults trying to make it in the real world.
