Snatch Game is usually the highlight of the season, but... *looks at the camera* America…. we’re in a slump and I don't see us getting out of it anytime soon.
Let’s spill some T and jump right into the shade!
Snatch Game means that we get my favorite mini challenge! YES HENNY! The library is open…. OFFICIALLY! The queens did an excellent job through the shade and letting each other have it. There were several LOL moments and a few that may go down as some of the best reads in Drag Race herstory!
“Miss Monet X Change. Ru, just an exchange? I would've asked for a full refund”
“Aquaria, people don't appreciate how much money you have to spend on your makeup, when your covering two faces”
“Vixen. Do you have a housekeeper, cuz girl, your kitchen is a mess!”
“Kameron Michaels, I really don't have a read for you, just please FUCK ME!”
“Monet X Change, Girl you know better to be black using hotel lotion”
The reads are so on point that it gave me hope that this Snatch Game was gonna be LIT…. but I was wrong, so wrong. Eureka ends up winning and is clearly separating herself from the pack. The other girls better wake up, because if they don’t, it's going to be a one woman show.
Snatch Game had some good points, but overall was one of the worst snatch games ever. Season 9, you're safe bitch.
Aquaria as Michelle Obama, I mean Melania Trump - She was quick, smart and came prepared with tons of mannerisms and gags. Aquaria has officially started to grow on me after Snatch Game.
Monet X Change as Maya Angelou - After Chi Chi’s terrible Maya, I was skeptical of her choice, but bitch TURNED it! The best part though was her soliloquy:
If these hoes try to come for me
I surely will cut thee
I will not hesitate to put thou in a ditch
‘Cuz Maya Angelou ain’t no punk bitch
Eureka as Honey Boo Boo - The gag with the marker was everything. Once I saw her covered in marker at the end, I was SOLD!!
Miz Cracker as Dorothy Parker - I am so disappointed in Cracker this week. As a self proclaimed comedy queen she really missed the mark. I was hoping she would have done Barbra Streisand.
Kameron Michaels as Chyna - She looked the part and the voice was sooooo right. She just isn't a funny queen and didn't know how to sell it.
Monique Heart as Maxine Waters - I WAS ROOTING FOR YOU... WE WERE ALL ROOTING FOR YOU…. HOW DARE YOU!!!!
Asia O’Hara as Beyonce- I don't understand why these queens keep trying to make Beyonce and Gaga happen in the Snatch Game. Asia played it angry and mean. I have to agree with Ru, what does Beyonce have to be mad about? She's the queen of the world.
The Vixen as Blue Ivy Carter- This was just a mess. TBH it was one of the worst performances in Drag Race herstory.
The runway them of Mermaid fantasy was brilliant! This was one of the best runways of the season, but really RU? The wheelchairs felt really awkward.
Aquaria - The Exxon oil spill mermaid fantasy was incredible, and will honestly be one of my favorite runways of the season.
Miz Cracker - The viking mermaid barbie fantasy was incredible! She continues to SLAY the runway
Asia O’Hara - I loved the mask! I thought it brought something extra to an otherwise very basic lewk.I couldn't stop laughing at the takes of her in the mask and she really saved herself from the bottom 2 with this lewk.
The Vixen - I reallllyyyy don't hate anyone's runway, but Vixens was the weakest. The neck up was gorgeous, but that bodice was unforgivable.
I have been waiting and waiting for a Carly Slay Jepsen song, and we finally got one of the best ones. Too bad the The Vixen and Monique didn't get the memo that “ Cut to The Feeling” is a banger! Monique didn't bother to learn the words or pretend like she did and Vixen just kinda rolled around on the ground the whole time. Honestly both of them could have gone home for that homophobic LSFYL. Carly, on behalf of the the LGBTQIA+ community: Im sorry girl.
My girl Monique ends up sashaying away and we say goodbye to one of my favorite queens. The Vixen is spared for now, but her days are numbered unless she learns how to step her pussy up and fast!
Miss Vanjie has been gone since episode 1, but has been mentioned in every subsequent episode. That is what i call a LEGACY bitch!
Ru’s hair and makeup has come MILES since last season. It's good to also see her over that cold or whatever was going on in the first half of the season. I was worried we were werking her too hard, yall!
The Vixen up until this episode has been someone that I didn't have a problem with, but the way she through Eureka under the bus in front of the judges and the subsequent conversation that happened on the runway was cringeworthy.
I like that they brought back Bianca to act as a mentor for snatch game. I hope they keep bringing back Drag Race alum to be advisors. MORE ALYSSA EDWARDS PLEASE!!!
