We are a year into the pandemic and, well, thank goodness for TV. Seriously. Traditional and streamed – all of it. Let’s not forget a healthy amount of those thanks must go to RuPaul’s Drag Race for keeping us incredibly entertained throughout. With all previous US seasons available on Netflix, we also now get new weekly episodes of the US season 13 and the UK season 2. We are here (and very appreciative) for all of it. If you are new to Drag Race, you can read up on Drag Queen Terminology and Drag Queen Quotes to help bring you up to speed. If you are not new to Drag Race, then you know and love RuPaul’s Drag Race Snatch Game.
RuPaul’s Drag Race Snatch Game is a play on the classic US game show Match Game with the Queens assuming characters comprising the celebrity panel. It is a Drag Race staple that both viewers and Queens look forward to every season. Having said that, it can be a bit of a crap shoot. I mean, it totally separates the contenders from the mere participants. It really puts the Queens comedy/improv and impersonation skills to the test and the winner is the one that steals the show. And the losers get ready to lip sync for their lives.
In honour of the upcoming Season 13 Snatch Game episode on the US series, we present some of our favourite Snatch Game performances from the US, UK and Canadian series. We did not rank them because they all had us (and RuPaul) laughing and left us…well, snatched.
