Week Clue
1 "I am The Cactus, persistent and determined to survive in the worlds toughest environments. Most Cactuses put down their roots where they first land, but not me, it took a while for me to find where I belonged. Along the way, I've walked the most hallow turf in the land. I'm a bit of a princess, but am i dangerous? I was called that at the start of my career, I took it hard. But don't we all need something that scares us just a little? We Cactuses aren't know for the way we move, well that's not strictly accurate. I'm not bad, but I'm definitely not the best mover in my family. I know the odds are against me twelve to one at The Masked Singer, but I've fought the odds before. Tonight I'm going to roll the dice and come up a winner."
2 "I came on The Masked Singer to impress, and then Sherlock Minogue got on the case. They aren't anywhere near the truth. Am I prickly? I really don't think so, but I am my own worst critic. It's amazing what a Cactus can achieve in life. I've met royalty. In fact, where I come from, my family almost is royalty. We've had many titles through history. But I trod my own path coming from the north, just like Santa who I love. No one can hold a candle to him. Climbing the ladder of success in my game is hard. I'm always afraid I'm going to fall, and there's always someone else who wants my role in the team. You just have to hold on to your dream as hard as you can. My dream right now is to win the Masked Singer."
3 "I've been cooking up plans for my life since I was very young. It's been tough, I won't lie. Not everyone had enjoyed what I've served up in the past. To tell you the truth, I never liked dishing it out. I just come back and try harder. I do my best work at night, even things usually done at other times of the day. It helps in this business if you have a medical degree. In fact, I could've used the medical assistance myself at times. Thank goodness it didn't come to that, I'm in the pink now. Most Cactuses are good on their own, not me, I'm at my best with others around me. But tonight, I'm going solo, and not for the first time, it could get ugly."
4 "Last time I sang I banged out an Aussie classic. You wish Mr Hughes. Cactus has survived harsh environments for a long time, my ancestors certainly did. But I'm a more modern kind of Cactus, and I like to live more privately. Family is important to me, it has made my past, my present and my future. But how much do you really know about our family? It's a mystery. Would I call myself driven? Yes, I would. But not at any cost. I've never been two-faced, with a Cactus what you see is what you get, and tonight you're gonna get my best."

("I can say this much, there was a time when I was overshadowed.")

("In many ways I have old fashioned values but at times, I've been modern all the way through.")

("I once ran a cross country race wearing these Spice Girl platform shoes instead of running shoes.")

("For my first professional engagement, I performed entirely in French and I can still sing it to this day.")
