RuPaul's Drag Race Queens Prep for Snatch Game in Sneak Peek — See Who They'll Be Portraying
It’s time for the Snatch Game on Friday’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race, and PEOPLE has the first look at the queens in action!
The highly anticipated challenge, which tests contestants’ skills at celebrity impersonation and improv comedy by putting them on a parody version of the Match Game, has become the Emmy-winning reality show’s most iconic test. Each year, it turns out memorable and hilarious performances from the queens while easily separating the strong from the weak.
This season’s crop seem primed for the task at hand. In the clip, Aiden Zhane, Brita, Crystal Methyd, Gigi Goode, Heidi N Closet, Jackie Cox, Jaida Essence Hal, Jan, Sherry Pie and Widow Von’Du all cheer with glee when RuPaul announces the game.
“RuPaul Charles done shuck up the building,” Widow says. “It’s the motherf—ing Snatch Game! I’m excitttteed!”
They then begin prepping their characters, announcing one by one who they’ll be taking on.
Brita, a New York City queen with a larger-than-life personality, turns her eyes to one of Broadway’s biggest divas: Tony-winning Dreamgirls star Jennifer Holliday. Meanwhile, Jaida turns to rap music’s current female star, Cardi B.
Widow steps things up, playing both Tina Turner and her controversial ex-husband Ike Turner. “I don’t know if that’s a good idea,” Brita tells audiences. “This seems like a very sticky situation.”
As if all that drama and the promise of the Snatch Game weren’t enough to get fans excited, Friday’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race will be guest-judged by Mean Girls costars Jonathan Bennett and Daniel Franzese.
Former contestant Miss Vanjie will also make a guest appearance, presumably to give advice about what not to do after her performance last season as Bhad Bhabie found her in the bottom three.
And while viewers will see Sherry Pie compete, she’s been disqualified from the competition after apologizing for the “trauma” she caused amid allegations she had catfished multiple men.
RuPaul’s Drag Race airs Friday (8 p.m. ET) on VH1.
