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.
