I haven’t written much about “RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under” because people get mad when you publish “spoilers” about these shows. With the difference in time zones, if you’re not watching this show when it airs in Australia, it’s easy to stumble across a social-media post that spoils the episode before you get the chance to view it for yourself.
Anyway, RuPaul herself has asked the fans of show which of the four finalists they believe should take home the crown, so it’s not as if I’m going to be the one spoiling the season if I publish a blog post about the zodiac signs of the contestants, so here it goes . . .
My money is on one of the two Aries contestants: Karen from Finance or Kita Mean. Both are veteran performers who have barely faltered in the competition. The similarities to “RuPaul’s Drag Race UK Season 1” are quite uncanny because either Karen or Kita could fill the role of The Vivienne in this situation. The Vivienne also happens to be an Aries.
Art Simone is a Virgo, but I do believe that Art Simone suffers the classic Virgo affliction of not understanding how her audience perceives her. She has everything in her arsenal to take the crown, except that she’s a bitch that that fans don’t like. “All Stars” rudemption arcs are made for queens like Art Simone.
Scarlet Adams is a Sagittarius. She’s done well in the competition, but she’s got a lot to learn — including makeup skills that would require her to paint a different face. I don’t know why she was never called out for doing the same thing all season long. She could learn a lot from watching her fellow Sagittarius queen, Gigi Goode, whose open-mindedness and preternatural maturity took her to the top (where the only person who could beat her was another Sagittarian).
I’m going to go ahead and pick Kita Mean as the winner. She’s grown more than any of the four finalists, and that’s what RuPaul loves to see in a winner. Karen from Finance has everything going for her except for a growth arc that would justify a win. She came into the game as a pro and left as a pro.
Who do you think is going to win? Let me know in the comments section or on one of my social media account.
And in case you’re interested, here’s a list of the zodiac signs of all the contestants from the fairly reliable website “Fandom.” Before I write a profile of a queen, I normally confirm the birth dates listed by cross-referencing the information on social media. I’m not going to do that now, so some of this info may be subject to change.
Aries: Karen from Finance: Kita Mean.
Gemini: Maxi Shield.
Cancer: Anita Wigl’it.
Virgo: Art Simone; Elektra Shock.
Sagittarius: Jojo Zaho.
Aquarius: Scarlet Adams; Coco Jumbo.
