Viewers knew that Eureka O & Hara returned with vengeance as she bent down to become the first queen to enter Season 10. Her Regency in Season 9 was torn to shreds by an unexpected injury during a Maxi Dancing Challenge, and, "Like a Phoenix from the Ashes," she returned after her entry into Season 10. Not only did she return better prepared than before to Drag Race but also recovered from a heavy blow to the knee – a crucial foundation to stifle performance. So it's safe to say that Eureka O & Hara is the official comeback child of Drag Race and she's earned that title and more. In an interview with Bustle, Eureka looks back how far she has come and shares what is at stake for her future.
Eureka is known as a boomerang drag queen and not just because of what she has physically thrown back. She was also emotionally tested in the competition, especially in Season 1
"I've learned to be authentic," says Eureka. "If you are [yourself]your tribe will be found, and people will love you, just who you are." Even in a culture based on the pillars of inclusion and acceptance, Eureka struggled to find acceptance with many of the other queens of the 10th season, mainly because of their exuberant personality. But she realizes that her personality has also brought her to the final in Los Angeles, so she would not change anything.
"Darling, I want to be on TV and in movies, that's why I did it!"
"I'm literally in the best position I could possibly be without winning the crown," she says. "I feel honored and blessed to have support, and that I made it in every episode, I missed it last year … I did not miss season ten." Shantay, she stayed all the way to the top three, and as much as she wanted to win, Eureka says she knows that Aquaria has earned the crown as well. "You can not take her," she says. "There's not a single 10th-season cast girl I can say is as bad as me, except Aquaria, and I really believe that, and you know what I'm most proud of? that little given beautiful, skinny, white, skinny, New York fashionista ass running for their money. "
One thing Eureka has not picked up on is her relationship with another season 10 sister, The Vixen. The two have a somewhat turbulent past and a tendency to disagree – their equally tall personalities met more than once on the show. And when their difficult relationship arose during the reunion episode, it got pretty hot and The Vixen went out. At this point, Eureka says she knows where she stands, and that's all she can control. "I do not really communicate much with The Vixen," she says. "I know we're both booked and busy, and happy with what I can say, I think everyone wants to point a finger most of the time, and all I wanted to do was say: & # 39; ; Hey, I've got a mess, it was really embarrassing for me to act like that at the moment, so I stopped myself from doing it again all season, and I want to go over it. "And right there I stand. "
As far as Eureka's future goes, she always wants to come back – on screen." I have the goal of being Saturday Night Live " she says" Darling, I want to be in Watching TV and Being in the Cinema, That's Why I Did It! "For now she has just released a new single called" The Big Girl "and the music video is seriously iconic.
" The big girl will shine every day just by I am, "says Eureka." I'm tall, I'm here to jiggle, and I did not win this gig. But I'm still here to party. "
