Eureka O’Hara : RuPaul’s Drag Race Season Nine Profile

Of all the drag queens I have seen on RuPaul’s Drag Race, Eureka O’Hara has got to be one of the most mathematically named. (Get it?) She also has the biggest selection of things in a shop

Eureka is all of twenty-six years old and hails from Tennessee. I wonder how long it will be before someone tells her that she’s the only ten they see. (Am I dating myself?)

Amazingly, Eureka was with a friend and got hit by a drunk driver — how cars don’t all come with built in technology to prevent drunk drivers from driving is beyond me — but thankfully she walked away without a scratch

She recently was with her mother in the hospital — send your love to her family!

Eureka is hardly new to the drag scene, having won accolades including Miss Tennessee International in 2010 among other honors

Enjoy a video from a few years ago :

The season nine premiere is a week from today and has moved to VH1. No sign that they are going to do any Behind the Drag specials. (Have I dated myself enough?

Aja : RuPaul’s Drag Race Season Nine Profile

This year on RuPaul’s Drag Race there are four, count them, four different queens from New York (where I presently live) and one of them is the inimitable Aja, who calls her style of performance “Powerpuff Girl Stripper” and was named Ms. Williamsburg in 2014.

While doing the research for this profile I was surprised that I already had come across Aja’s name in passing… last year, when Season Eight was wrapping up, as you can see here in this conversation with Thorgy Thor.

Will Aja come out on top? Will it be another New York win this year?
