The video features Ruby and Zara lip-syncing to audio of Kylie Jenner and Kourtney Kardashian. The audio went viral on TikTok back in 2020. It comes from a clip from Keeping Up With the Kardashians in which the family are eating at a restaurant when Kylie unexpectedly breaks into song.
She sings, "Cause I’m gonna get wasted/ I just finished a whole cup of 42/ And I’m about to go for my second one.”
Kylie then asks Kourtney, “Kourtney, what the f*** are you on?” Kourtney then replies: “I don’t know what’s going on, so I’m just appreciating my bread.”
Whilst this audio has been used to death on the platform, when Ruby and Zara used it it just felt right... a bit too right actually, as some fans noticed the clip made Ruby's fans realise the similarities between her and Kourtney Kardashian... and this revelation CHANGED EVERYTHING.
Ruby's fans took to the comments of the video to express their shock. One wrote, "Ruby is literally Kourt Kardashian 🤣🤣."
Another wrote, "Okay Ruby is Kourtney why have I only just seen this?"

Things you didn't know about Made in Chelsea
The initial idea came from LA based The Hills. Spencer Matthews was pals with Spencer Pratt and Brody Jenner and, he told Closer Online in 2017, "We didn't have anything like that in the UK. "We pitched basically the same as [producer of The Hills and The City] Adam DiVello's idea over here to star in our own show in London."The crossover later made itself known when Spencer Pratt's sister Stephanie arrived in Chelsea in 2013 and started dating Spencer.
Spencer and Hugo Taylor were involved in the casting process. According to Spenny, the two of them first pitched the idea as The Big Smoke and even filmed a pilot, but it wasn't initially commissioned. When bigwig producers later showed an interest, it was to be called Chelsea Girls, but Spencer and Hugo requested the name be changed and what we know as Made in Chelsea was born.
Not all scenes are as they seem - Spencer told Closer that they'd often end up filming scenes set in clubs at night in the early morning based on availability of the venue. A bit awkward, no?
As a result, while the alcohol on set is real, usually if they're filming early scenes they'll "be on the waters". If it's an explosive night time scene though and the producers were after extra drama, then drinking "was encouraged".
Remember THIS iconic fight? Even in the first series' "some of the fights were more real than others". According to Spenny, "Some of the time you'll take the other side in an argument otherwise there's no scene – the arguments are real but your opinion may not be real."
He also said that, "In order to prolong drama they would dilute a side of the argument. "Sometimes it was very clear from the beginning who was right and who was wrong – sometimes simple discussions would drag on over the course of a series, for the purpose of entertainment."
The cast don't know if they're going abroad until just 24 hours in advance. James Taylor told Closer that producers would wait til the last possible minute to film reactions to the news of a holiday, "otherwise it would be acting". And Habbs admitted that Canada (in 2018) was the weirdest trip because "there were two separate groups of friends".
Lizzo was in Made in Chelsea.Yep, In 2014, Lizzo featured on stage in a gig scene in the show. If that wasn't weird enough (and it's not exactly a secret any more), what's even stranger is that during gig and club scenes there's actually no music played. Extras have revealed that most scenes are filmed in silence so that the mics can pick up dialogue of the main cast.
Mark-Francis Vandelli and Victoria Baker-Harber are the most "high maintenance" cast members in MiC history, and Mark even said he didn't know and "couldn't care less" about who else was on the show in 2016. "I have invited many of the cast to parties in my house but you can tell there is a distinction between my friends and them, and they don't really make any effort to integrate," he told Digital Spy. "They don't gel. What you must understand is that we don't interact or socialise with any of the other cast," he continued. "Or really ever see them. Occasionally Binky, who I'm always happy to see.""[But] Toff's very smart and she can speak to anyone about anything, she's intelligent and forthcoming."
When superstar DJ Tom Zanetti briefly filmed scenes for MiC, after meeting his girlfriend Sophie Hermann on Celeb Go Dating, he spoke out about how 'set up' the show was. "In a way, yes, it is set up. They'll set up an amazing setting and a backdrop and then you're given a topic to discuss."That doesn't discredit it at all. It was set up but, then you've got to film it so many times from so many different angles. And then, you get the wides, and then you get the pretties and then you get this and that."
In 2019, current cast members James Taylor and Sophie 'Habbs' Habboo told Closer that, much like in the Love Island villa, producers are more involved than you think. "Producers make you say things you don't necessarily want to say," said James Taylor. "There's a definite hierarchy and there's 'different rules' for the older cast and the newbies."Habbs agreed, "You forget they're not your friends and so you tell them your deepest darkest secrets and suddenly everyone knows them."

It might be the way she looks in the video, the effortlessness with which she lip-syncs, or maybe just her general vibe. Whatever it is, there is definitely a bit of Kourtney in Ruby (or maybe there's a bit of Ruby in Kourtney? It's a real chicken/egg conundrum). Whatever it is we can't unseen it and WE ARE HERE FOR IT.
One fan particularly resonated with Kourtney, commenting, "KOURTNEY IS LITERALLY ME ALL THE TIME 💀". It seems Ruby might not be the only one giving off Kourtney energy.
After learning about these similarities we're going to be watching Ruby VERY closely in the next series of MIC to see just how similar her and Kourtney are... Maybe Ruby will even start dating a tattooed punk rock drummer? You never know.
