Symone (source: YouTube)

I was thrilled to see to see my fellow Capricorn, Symone, take the crown on Season 13 of “RuPaul’s Drag Race” last night. Even before I knew she shared my sun sign, she was my favorite. I remember watching the “Meet the Queens” videos before the season premiere and saying to myself “I want the smart one to win.”

That’s what I get from Symone. Everything she does makes me believe that she is one of the most clever girls ever to walk into the Werk Room.

Curiously, she was in the final two against Kandy Muse, a Scorpio. No other Scorpio has ever made it that deep into the competition. Nevertheless, Scorpio is the only zodiac sign that has never worn the crown on any version of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” including all the international versions. The breakdown of winners so far looks like this:

S1: BeBe Zahara Benet — Pisces

S2: Tyra Sanchez — Taurus

S3: Raja — Gemini

S4: Sharon Needles — Sagittarius

S5: Jinkx Monsoon — Virgo

S6: Bianca Del Rio — Cancer

S7: Violet Chachki — Gemini

S8: Bob the Drag Queen — Cancer

S9: Sasha Velour — Cancer

S10: Aquaria — Aquarius

S11: Yvie Oddly — Leo

S12: Jaida Essence Hall — Sagittarius

S13: Symone — Capricorn


UK S1: The Vivienne — Aries

UK S2: Lawrence Chaney — Libra


Canada S1: Priyanka — Gemini


Holland S1: Envy Peru — Taurus


Thailand S1: Natalia Pliacam — Capricorn

Thailand S2: Angele Anang — Libra


All Stars S1: Chad Michaels — Pisces

All Stars S2: Alaska Thunderfuck — Pisces

All Stars S3: Trixie Mattel — Virgo

All Stars S4: Trinity the Tuck — Sagittarius

All Stars S4: Monét X Change — Pisces

All Stars S5: Shea Couleé — Aquarius

So, in twenty-five seasons, not a single Scorpio has won. With “Drag Race Down Under” about to premiere with no Scorpio queens in the cast, you can make that twenty-six seasons (twenty-seven if the casting rumors of “All Stars 6” are true). I don’t believe that the cast of the Spanish version of “Drag Race” has been revealed, so I haven’t included those queens in my statistics.

Anyway, I can only draw two conclusions from this evidence: either RuPaul is defending his own crown as the most famous Scorpio queen in herstory, or Scorpios are terrible at everything they do. Maybe it’s six of one, and half-a-dozen of the other.

What do you think? Let me know in the comments section or on one of my social media sites.


  1. “ either RuPaul is defending his own crown as the most famous Scorpio queen in herstory, or Scorpios are terrible at everything they do. ”
    Haha oh this stings. But made me laugh so hard!
