Fans were devastated when Season 14 frontrunner Kornbread "The Snack" Jeté was forced to leave "RuPaul's Drag Race" early after suffering an injury onstage. However, the inimitable drag queen more than made her mark on the competition, in part because of her friendship with Willow Pill, a fellow contestant who is also trans.
The lovable duo became fast friends on the show; Kornbread helped Willow Pill in the "Werk Room" when Willow’s illness made it hard for her to grip a pair of scissors. Kornbread showed kindness to her fellow competitor and, evidently, it meant a lot to Willow, who was trying to put on a brave face.
Kornbread gushed that Willow has changed her perspective on life entirely, noting she inked a permanent reminder on her leg to showcase her friend's "resilience." Kornbread shared a photo of the colorful tattoo on Twitter, writing, "You've heard of Pillow on a bed?! Here's Willow on the Bread."
At the Season 14 reunion, Willow joked she was going to tattoo Kornbread's busted ankle on her butt to return the favor. She explained, "Kornbread and I are close in a way that I don't think [people] understand. We both have dark pasts, we're both struggling human beings who are just kind of sad, tragic drag queens together.”
