December 1 is Tatianna’s birthday.

Wikipedia has the note “citation needed” alongside Tatianna’s birth date on her bio, so I hope that today really is her birthday. I didn’t feel like slogging through a couple years of social media posts just to confirm it.

I do believe that it’s correct, though. If you think about former “RuPaul’s Drag Race” contestants who have received story arcs that exhibited continuous growth, Sagittarius natives Shangela and Tatianna come to mind. Both queens even played their fellow Sagittarians in their initial “Snatch Game” appearances, with Shangela as Tina Turner and Tatianna as Britney Spears.

What is interesting to me as I revisit seasons-gone-by on Netflix is that these Sagittarius contestants seem to get caught up in workroom drama on their seasons. I don’t associate Sagittarius with the sort of calculated drama that most reality TV villains possess, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t right in the middle of the action when it occurs. In about a million previous posts on this blog, I’ve used Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan and Jill Zarin of the “Real Housewives of New York” as examples of textbook Sagittarius temperament: yelling at you one minute and then hugging you the next.

The Sagittarius “Drag Race” contestants fit this description to a T. In the upcoming “All-Stars 3” season, Trinity Taylor stands out as a Sagittarius contestant who could possibly take the crown. She’s a seasoned pro, and the longer these girls stay in the game, the better they are at understanding how they are perceived by the judges. Exuberance isn’t enough to win “Drag Race.” You’ve got to prove that you’re the most-talented queen in the room, and you’ve got to stop fighting with the other girls because they can potentially control your fate in the competition. Trinity Taylor might just have the goods to make it all the way to the final two, a place that Tatianna and Shangela were never able to go.

Now that I’ve put that out into the universe, she is probably going to be the first one sent packing . . .
