RuPaul on The Price is Right.

We're used to seeing RuPaul serving as a judge on reality television, but on Monday night (May 11), he got to spend some time as a contestant on CBS's The Price Is Right At Night primetime special.

For the special episode, the Drag Race host appeared as a guest celebrity contestant, playing along with the other contestants and assisting them throughout the show. Of course, Ru wasn't playing for the usual prizes — instead, the star was playing for money that he would donate to Planned Parenthood.

In one clip posted from the show, RuPaul takes the stage with contestant Ashley (who is appropriately wearing a shirt stating "Reading is fundemental," one of Ru's catchphrases) to try and help her win a game of "One Away" for the show's most coveted prize — a brand new car!

It turns out Ru was Ashley's lucky charm all along — after guessing the price of the car by adjusting its five digit price number-by-number, Ashley managed to get all five correct and take home the car, as RuPaul excitedly celebrated with her.

Check out the clip of RuPaul's appearance on The Price is Right at Night below:
