Everyone knows that the Columbus drag scene has been completely transformed by Nina West.
Just in case you live under a rock or something, Nina West is the biggest name in drag here in Columbus. Here she is getting ready to play Ursula in an upcoming (and epic) production of Disney’s The Little Mermaid.
But the rumors have been swirling for months that our queen may be hitting the road for greener pastures: aka appearing on RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 11.
First of all, Nina virtually disappeared from all social media between mid-May and early July.
RuPaul’s Drag Race usually takes about four weeks to film, but Nina wouldn’t just be gone for the exact amount of time. She’s smarter than that. And prettier.
Another Season 11 rumored contestant, Ariel Versace, also disappeared around the same time. She said she was out for “foot surgery”. Sound familiar? That’s because NINA SAID THE SAME THING. Coincidence? I think not.
Of course, the internet is a buzz. From Reddit to Youtube, people are predicting the full cast. And Nina is included in nearly all of those predictions.
Speculation aside, it would be stupid for Nina NOT to appear on the show. She’s a great queen with plenty of talent. I can almost guarantee that she’s sashaying her way to the Top 4.
The official cast is usually announced in February-March. Don’t worry, you won’t miss the announcement because we’ll be shouting it from the rooftops.
