Week Clues
1 “I am Medusa. In Greek mythology a woman with snakes instead of hair. There’s a clue in my name; if you work it out, you’ll be close. I love the way my dress feels. With snakes for hair, I’m floating on air. Tonight, will be one of my greatest performances. This isn’t my first rodeo so watch how far I go."
2 “There's a snake in the grass of this competition. It's me, Medusa! While my hair is made out of snakes that swirl, in real life I’m a material girl. Last week I was nervous and a bit on edge. I have an affinity with mythical creatures. Especially ones that come out at night."
3 “Anyone for snakes and ladders? It's me, Medusa! Just like Medusa, I’m from a faraway land. But I found fame after swimming up on your shores. Performing gives me so much happiness. I get it now, I really get it. After last week’s performance I was floating on air. I’m going to make hissstory with my next song. I’m feeling on edge, but this is a dream come true. I’ve got this in the bag, because I’m definitely not new."
4 "I'm feeling viperactive tonight. It's me, Medusa! In France, I really hit a high point. It then dawned on me that this was my calling. And instilled in me a desire to reach the top."
5 "I'll snake your breath away, it's me, Medusa! I would describe the critics praise of my last performance as accurate. It was great that I could share my happiest day with everyone. I now grasp how to exciting it is to perform."
6 "Go ahead, snake my day. It's me, Medusa! I was this excited when I made the cover of Rugby World Magazine for the first time. That was after we brought home the silverware from Australia. It gave me the freedom to be myself."
7 "I'm going to snake your hair stand on end. It's me, Medusa! I now comprehend how performing makes one glow. I feel I am on the brink of winning the whole show. Finally I can leave the team behind. "
"Ssss Sup, I'm Medusa! I once had a heart break that rattled my bones. I've definitely put a guard up since then. It's hard being in the spotlight. But at least I get to share it with these guys. We don't compete, although we've had our fair share of hissy fits. My performance tonight is going to be amazing. Once I start singing, you'll understand."
