Pearl was heavily criticized by RuPaul and the judges for not being enthusiastic enough during the first four episodes of the show and was even said to be 'sleeping' through the competition. After a lipsync against her friend Trixie Mattel, Pearl began to take the competition much more seriously and secured herself a placement in the top three, along with Ginger Minj, and Violet Chachki.
She initiated her musical career as a DJ in 2015, releasing her first electronic music album Pleasure.
