In the world of Drag Race UK, Naomi Carter emerged as a beloved contestant known for her quirky charm and distinctive fashion choices. From her memorable “freaknik”-esque ensemble to her hilarious exit phrase, she left an indelible mark on the competition. Her elimination may have dashed her hopes of becoming the UK’s Next Drag Superstar, but it solidified her status as a national treasure in the hearts of many fans.
“I’m finally getting me flowers!” Naomi shares with GAY TIMES. “I just feel like because I’m up North in a tiny little city, not a lot of people see me. Now, the world’s getting to see me, and everybody seems to be so nice and kind. I’m just feeling the love, and I love the love.”
In a recent episode, Naomi found herself in the bottom two, where she delivered an electrifying lip-sync performance alongside Cara Melle. Reflecting on her elimination, she states, “It’s what I expected. I were thinking about it a bit at first, but it’s already happened, I’ve already been through the experience. It’s not gonna get worse than going home.”
Addressing the judges’ decision, Naomi suggests that the groups should have been judged collectively, as the winning group was evaluated as a whole. However, she refrains from naming who should have been in the bottom alongside her.
The Drag Race experience was not without its drama, and Naomi witnessed some Untucked conflicts unfold. “It was as wild as what you saw,” she recalls. “I think all of us were a bit like, ‘Oop!’ in the moment. That’s the good thing about this season. As much as there is drama, there’s a lot of entertainment as well.”
Discussing her injury during the season, Naomi admits that her knee is not fully recovered but better than before. “I just need to rest and recover it, but because I work in drag so much, it’s a little bit hard.”
As for her unforgettable exit phrase, she humorously explains, “I didn’t even have anything pre-conceived in my mind or anything. I just got to the end, and I were just like, ‘Well, you’ve sent me home. Bloody rude of her, innit? So see you in a bit, dog shit. See you later!'”
Despite her early exit, Naomi Carter’s unique style and personality have made her a standout queen in the Drag Race UK herstory books. As she embarks on her post-Drag Race journey, fans can look forward to her music career, where she plans to showcase her rap and singing skills. In her own words, “Why pay someone else to sing on my track when I can do it myself?”
Naomi’s journey may have taken a detour, but her vibrant presence and talents continue to shine both on and off the stage.
