Did no one notice that *Kia* said 'all five vowels', or are you all just over-achievers?

What about 5 vowels consecutively (not necessarily all distinct) ??
The best I can think of so far are 4 vowels: buoyant (and variants), bayou, joyous, aqueous.

What English words contain all five vowels in the correct order but not neccessarily consecutively?
Sorry honestrosewater but they neither contain all five vowels, nor are the vowels in the correct order....

Oh, those were for dextercioby's challenge: What about 5 vowels consecutively (not necessarily all distinct) ?? The best I could do was 4 consecutive.
