This recap of Hulu series Dollface Season 1, Episode 5, “Beauty Queen” contains significant spoilers. You can read the recap of the previous episode by clicking these words.

Episode 5, “Beauty Queen” presents that notion when you meet someone, and your first thought is — “How do I impress this new gem in my life?” But of course, the irony is that by trying to impress you are self-jeopardizing yourself anyway.

“Beauty Queen” shows us how Jules (Kat Dennings) is not well and truly over her break-up. When she attends her sister’s bachelorette party, which is hosted in her newly rented place, she is asked how she came across to meet Jeremy’s sister. She imagines being asked a few times how she met Jeremy’s sister, which is clearly a soft spot as the break-up is still raw. Luckily, the bachelorette party is cut short, with the cat causing havoc and the bride-to-be causing a 3rd-degree burn on her face.

As for Madison. Well, she is worried that her friends’ maturity levels are not high enough for her new older heartthrob. She insists that her friends must act more mature, and she rushes to Jules’ house for a dinner party, not knowing the Bachelorette Party decorations are still draped around the property. The girls rush to take down all the p***s decorations, but the huge inflatable was not put down in time for when Madison’s boyfriend arrives.

Also, the stripper arrives as well — Jules forgot to cancel him and persuades the man to act like he is part of the dinner party. The dinner party is strained and awkward, with everyone acting like they are way older than they actually are. At one point, Jules’ cats eat too many of the p***s desserts and throws up, forcing her to ring a man who she met in the park earlier who looks after animals — a new romance is blossoming.

Dollface Season 1, Episode 5, “Beauty Queen” ends with the stripper eventually not able to help himself and starts taking off his clothes to the music. Madison admits to her boyfriend that she was trying to impress, and Jules agrees to go on a date with the vet.
