Trinity Kardashian Bonet is the stage name of Joshua Jones, an American drag performer. Jones is best know for being a contestant on Season 6 of RuPaul's Drag Race.
RuPaul's Drag Race
During the show, Trinity was known for being moody, closed off, and short with other contestants during the show. Whenever she struggled with the main challenges, she often would comment that the challenges were outside her comfort zone and skill set. She also had some tension with fellow contestant Bianca Del Rio, who liked to criticise her, along with other contestants. Trinity revealed in an episode of "Untucked" that she is HIV positive, which was received with much support from fellow contestants. Bianca commended her for being brave enough to share her status, and explained that her moody introvert behaviour may have been a result of her keeping her status as a secret.
In the episode "Glamazon by Colorevolution", Trinity was paired with Bianca to create a commercial for RuPaul's new cosmetics line, which targeted "working women". In the commercial, Bianca played a middle class business woman with multiple children, while Trinity played a street hooker. Although Bianca had stated earlier in the season that she didn't want to work with Trinity, Bianca became very helpful and encouraging to Trinity, which helped her "break out of her shell". The judges were very surprised at how well Trinity did in this challenge, with both Trinity and Bianca receiving positive reviews.
In the episode "Comedy Queens", Trinity delivered a well received comedic routine, which made RuPaul cry. RuPaul stated that she was so proud of Trinity's improvement in the competition.
In Episode 9, the "RuPaul Talk Show" challenge, Trinity interviewed singer Georgia Holt and her grandson Chaz Bono, calling him "Chad" multiple times, without being corrected. She received poor reviews from the judges and placed in the bottom two.
Trinity was eliminated in 7th place after having lip synced against Adore Delano and lost, having won one mini-challenge, zero main challenges, and having been in the bottom two three times before "sashaying away".
