RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6 Episode 5: Snatch Game — The Snatch Game is the signature challenge of RuPaul’s Drag Race. And this season has the tightest Snatch yet!

Right off the bat, it must be said that if you do not normally watch the behind-the-scenes show Untucked, you must make an exception this week. Among the revelations: Trinity is HIV-positive; and Laganja is batshit crazypants. Seriously, she spends several minutes accusing Adore (among others) of “coming for” her without being able to produce a single example. Laganja literally says, “I don’t know what you said, but I know it made me feel bad.” Predictably, the only person who understands what Laganja is talking about is Gia.

The girls enter the Werkroom after April’s elimination, and Bianca is the first to congratulate Trinity. “You turned it, bitch. Clap for that hooker!” I am so in love with Bianca. Darienne throws major shade at Milk in a confessional, for some reason. She doesn’t “get” Milk’s fashion. Bitch, NOBODY does. Just appreciate it for the hot, sexy mess that it is. Laganja tells Adore that the girls stepped on her video-message moment (shown in Untucked). “It’s about ME!” Please. Bianca tells her to beat it. Yes, please. Laganja, in that one Untucked episode last week, went from “meh” to “loathe.” And as mentioned before, this week’s Untucked is even worse. Let’s see how much farther she can fall.

The next day the queens gather in the Werkroom and Laganja prances in wearing some godawful macramé wig nightmare that inspires Bianca to call her “Erykah Ba-Don’t.” Bwah! Predictably, Laganja spouts off a string of nonsensical drag phrases in lieu of an actual comeback.

Thankfully, Laganja’s bizarre verbal masturbation is interrupted by SheMail, then Ru comes in to announce that it’s time to play…Snatch Game! The queens are thrilled, as am I. They’ve never done Snatch Game with so many queens before. No mini-challenge needed this week.

As they prepare, the ladies discuss their choices and methods. Joslyn is doing Teresa Giudice from Real Housewives of New Jersey, which is an excellent pick. Hopefully she will flip over a table and call the judges “prostitution whores!” Laganja has chosen Rachel Zoe, which should be easy for an intelligent person to make funny, so of course Laganja is screwed. Bianca is going to be Judge Judy, which is perfect. Joslyn tells her that’s Ru’s favorite show, and Bianca starts feeling the pressure. Calm your tits, girl, you will be great.

  • They need to make the Snatch Game episode 90 minutes. We all know there was a lot more than three rounds worth of content. I don’t recall a previous version where so many queens were on-point with their characters.
