While the seven Homecoming princesses took a back seat to their names and numbers, Chris Wu was this Thursday’s queen of Cerritos College.

Chris Wu won the Mock Rally as representative of Homecoming princess No. 4, Geri Macalino (Phi Beta Lambda.)

In front of a lively crowd who yelled out sexual slurs and cheered with pompons in hand, Wu came out and shed his coat that covered his entire torso.

While the audience cheered Wu on as he went along with their gestures, he did have a little regret.

“I didn’t really want to do it but I was kind of forced to…by girlfriend,” Wu said.

His girlfriend, Macalino, denied forcing him, but went on to say that she did coerce him into doing it.

Macalino elaborated, “He is the only one who knows me well enough to mock me, so I made him do it.”

Wu came out in drag that was almost identical to the outfit Macalino was wearing. He entertained the crowd by making sexual innuendos directed a t the events host, DJ Ray Mahr.

“Remind me of a bold little friend of mine,” Wu shot at Mahr

The DJ replied, “I’ll take what I can get…at my age getting lucky means making it to the restroom in time,”

Wu is no stranger to entertaining. He is a Theatre/Arts Major and has acting experience.

According to Macalino, “We do shows together all the time…so he’s used to wearing makeup and performing.”

For his award winning performance, Wu, received a bouquet made of onions and carrots.

“All I get is the title…and some vegetables.”

The queen court mock was presented by the ASCC and was held in the Student Center.

There were seven judges: Diana Hear, the Interim Payroll Manager; Tony Gerhardt, Lola Risealia, Cheryl Thury, Administrative Secretary; Kennethia Vega, Administrative Secretary, and Erlinaa Martinez, Vice president of Student Services Assistant.

The princesses were introduced first and brought onto the stage by David Shade. Christina Solis escorted the males (dressed as females) onto the stage. Dillon Powers, who represented Lucy Frias, of Child Development, wore a chicken costume.

They walked out on to the stage and each had their turn of walking down the runway to mock the princesses. They also had to answer a random question pulled out of a basket. After that, they had to mock the princess by dancing to a tune of their princess’ choice.

The election for Queen will be this Wednesday and Thursday. The polls, located at the Food Court Patio, Health Science Patio, and the Social Science Patio, will be open from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. and 5 p.m.-8 p.m.
