After last week’s padrama party of an episode, you’d expect the race to slow down a little bit, right?
A clear sign that these girls’ tucks are tightening is when it’s time for the Snatch Game. For those of you who are new to drag race, the Snatch Game is when the remaining contestants each choose a celebrity/personality to impersonate in a 70’s style game show. Think “The Match Game” on poppers.
This gives both the makeup queens and the girls with personality a great chance to show Ru what they’ve got. Some of the most memorable contestants include:
Tatianna as Britney Spears. Brilliant. My personal fave, obviously. Alec Mapa was right when she said this portrayal was eerily accurate.
Pandora Boxx as Carol Channing. Hilarious. It was nice to see that she cared enough to get the information about scurvy out there.
Shangela as Tina Turner. Oddly fitting for Shangela’s spastic personality.
Raja as Tyra Banks. She captured the crazy pretty well. More importantly, bitch smized for dayyyyyyys.
Stacy Lane Matthews as Monique. There was no real talent involved (she already looks just like Monique) but she got an A for the look.
And, of course, there are also some memorable Snatch Game train wrecks…
Sonique as Lady Gaga. Granted, this was before anyone knew anything about Gaga’s mannerisms and relentless hunger for attention.
Morgan McMichaels as Pink. I like Morgan. I love Pink. But this just wasn’t working. Not to mention I was annoyed with Morgan at this point in the competition.
Alexis Mateo as Alicia Keys. Literally the most irritating contestant. I hate her face, I hate her voice and this impersonation sucked.
The rest of the season 3 cast. Dreadful.
Season 4’s snatch game, however, is shaping up to be somethin’ fierce. We can’t wait to see Sharon work it out as Michelle Visage, Queefy O’Hara fail as Gaga, and of course Chad Michaels effortlessly pull everyone’s wigs back with her Cher impersonation.
