Ranking All the Snatch Game Performances from Worst to Best

Credit: LOGO

Snatch Game has become the episode we can’t wait to watch on RuPaul’s Drag Race every single season. What started out as just another maxi-challenge for the queens almost ten years ago has turned into the gayest must-see TV out there.

For those unfamiliar, the concept is simple. The remaining contestants dress up and act as a celebrity of their choosing and do a question and answer format like the classic game show Match Game. This challenge separates the front runners from the soon-to-be sashaying away queens, as it is designed for you to think on your toes and make your celebrity funny and attention grabbing in every way possible.


Many have excelled in the Snatch Game and others have completely flatlined. Question is: who did the absolute best at their impersonations and which ones do we never, ever want to see again?

Check out all the Snatch Game impersonations ranked from worst to last. This includes both the regular RPDR seasons and All Stars.
