Although the final four queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 10 are all fantastic, you’d be bonkers if Eureka O’Hara wasn’t high on your list of possible crown-snatchers to win tonight’s grand finale. The 27-year-old performer is one of the show’s fiercest competitors, having returned from last season’s eliminating injury with a vengeance on Season 10.
O’Hara deserves to win because he’s beautiful, driven and a great role model to all out there searching to find themselves in this world. He’s a light shining bright in this dark gloomy world.
Here are five reasons why Eureka O’Hara should win the Season 10 crown:
1. Like the phoenix he is, Eureka O’Hara raised up from the ashes of last season’s upset to deliver.
It’s not easy for a queen to return after an upsetting eliminating injury, which took O’Hara out on Season 9 of Drag Race. RuPaul promised to bring him back on Season 10, and Ru delivered. When he entered the workroom first, we knew that O’Hara was prepared to slay the competition. Sure, at first his nerves got the best of him but he shook that off early and smoothly sailed into the top four.
2. Eureka O’Hara’s runway looks were always high glamour and on point.
All season long, O’Hara’s looks on the runway consistently delivered high-glamour and fashion. We were kind of sick of that one cone-shaped wig by the end, but we were too busy looking at the fantastic looks he’s always served to actually care.
3. Eureka O’Hara won two weeks in a row.
The first queen to ever win two weeks in a row, O’Hara delivered two winning performances back-to-back. How fabulous is that? He won more than Kameron Michaels and Asia O’Hara, and while he may not have won as much as Aquaria, he has bragging rights for two wins back-to-back. That seems like winning behavior to us, no?
4. Eureka O’Hara is outspoken, opinionated and not afraid to speak the truth.
A lot of the queens love to complain that O’Hara has too much to say, but we can’t get enough of his opinions. He’s vocal and speak out, making his voice heard. We know if he’s given the crown, he’ll use his platform to continue speaking out about the issues that matters to him.
5. It’s time a big girl snatches the crown!
So many skinny bitches have walked away with the crown, while our fuller-sized queens have been denied their place in the Drag Race Hall of Fame. O’Hara winning Drag Race will be a huge beacon of inspiration for all the bigger people out there who watch the show, teaching them that they can do anything they put their mind to. Obviously, we’re not just saying give the crown to O’Hara only because he is big. He’s actually earned it. Seeing some body diversity in the winners circle would just be the extra powdered sugar on the delicious cake, cake, cake that is Eureka O’Hara.
