Jon is a DJ who wanted to walk in the heels of a drag queen.
“I’m a New York City-based DJ. I work for you guys often and I want to step into your shoes for a bit,” Jon explained.
He chose the name Ali Bops because he’s a DJ with great taste in music.
“Personality — she likes to dance but she’s also a little demure,” Jon said of his drag alter-ego.
When Jon got his makeup done he couldn’t believe it didn’t feel super-heavy.
“I’m a woman!” he declared. “I always thought it felt like a lot on your face, but it doesn’t feel like anything.”
Jon also noted that the makeup instantly changed how he carried himself.
“The more I look at myself, the more I feel like I should be sitting a certain way,” he said as he posed in the mirror.
Jasmine and Marti chose a jewel-toned purple skirt, metallic teal heels and a cool-toned wig with blues and purples for Ali Bops’ look.
“I feel like a brand new version of myself,” Jon said.
Jasmine did however advise Ali Bops to come up with a catchphrase.
“Pop it. Soak it in. Bop it up,” Jon said, mimicking the Bop It children’s toy.
