Snatch Game is a main challenge, where contestants showcase their best celebrity impersonations in a game show setting. The Snatch Game challenge was first featured in Season 2 of RuPaul's Drag Race, where it became a popular fan favorite and was subsequently featured again in Seasons 3-12, and is a highly anticipated episode by viewers. It was subsequently featured in RuPaul's Drag Race UK Season 1 and Drag Race Thailand.

Snatch Game is a parody of the classic TV show, "Match Game", which aired from 1962 to 1991, where contestants attempted to match celebrities' answers to "fill-in-the-blank" questions. The term snatch is also used as a vulgar slang term referring to a woman's vagina, hence the name Snatch Game, since the contestants are (almost always) impersonating women.

Rules of Snatch Game

  1. RuPaul shouts out a random question from a deck of cards and tells it to one of the guest stars/celebrities. The queens must listen to the question and fill in the blank with their own answer.
  2. The queens' answers must match the guest celebrities in order to gain points.
  3. If a queen gets a correct, matching answer, one of the celebrities gets a point.
  4. At the end of the game, the points do not matter and have no effect on judging, since the queens are judged by their impersonation and comedy.

Trivia

  • The segment initially featured nine panelists (per the original Match Game format), while later seasons varied the number.
    • During the first season of All Stars, a segment called Gaff - In took place, in which the queens delivered celebrity impersonations by teams and had to write original comedy material for a Laugh-In style sketch show.
    • On the fourth and fifth seasons of All Stars, the Snatch Game segment was based on The Dating Game show.
  • Season 6's Snatch Game episode is the highest rated RuPaul's Drag Race episode on IMDb with a score of 9.2/10.
  • Celebrities who have been impersonated on Snatch Game will often comment on their impersonation, usually praising the queen who impersonated them. Judge Judy, Lady Bunny, Tamar Braxton, Carol Channing, and Nancy Grace have all had pre-taped messages aired on the show talking about how they enjoyed their impersonations. Amanda Lepore also had a pre-taped message but it was cut from the show.
    • Patricia Quinn, however, was not impressed with Aiden Zhane's portrayal of her and actually found it offensive.
  • Tamar Braxton and Michelle Visage are the only celebrities to be impersonated on the show and later appear as guest celebrities on Snatch Game.
  • Tamar Braxton, Raven-Symoné, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, Kesha, Jenifer Lewis, Tiffany Pollard, Lisa Rinna, Nicki Minaj, and Leslie Jones are the only celebrities to have both been impersonated on the show and appeared as guest judges on the US version while Metinee "Lukkade" Kingpayom appeared as a guest judge and character in the Thai version.
    • Tamar Braxton and Metinee "Lukkade" Kingpayom are the only celebrities in the franchise to date to pull off the hat-trick of being impersonated on Snatch Game, appearing as a guest celebrity to answer questions on Snatch Game, and appearing as a guest judge on the runway.
      • While Tamar is the first to achieve this feat, having been impersonated in US Season 5 and appearing as a guest celebrity and judging for the first time in US Season 7, Lukkade is the first to accomplish it in a single episode, doing so in Drag Race Thailand Season 1.
        • Though Leslie Jones did not appear as one of the guest celebrities answering questions during the actual Snatch Game, she is the first celebrity on the US version and second in the overall franchise to appear as a guest judge and be impersonated in the same season.
  • Though Kennedy Davenport is widely acknowledged to be the first queen to impersonate a male on Snatch Game, technically this accolade belongs to Jessica Wild, who impersonated RuPaul in Season 2's Snatch Game. Kennedy is also preceded by Alaska, who portrayed Lady Bunny in Season 5, and Violet Chachki and Max (who played Alyssa Edwards and Sharon Needles respectively) actually competed in the same Snatch Game as her.
  • Sonique was the first queen ever eliminated on a Snatch Game episode.
  • Season 2 is the only season where both the queen (Sahara Davenport) and the celebrity they impersonated on Snatch Game (Whitney Houston) have passed away since the episode was aired.
    • The only other celebrities that have passed away since they were impersonated on Snatch Game are Carol Channing, Amy Winehouse, Aretha Franklin and Big Ang. Any other deceased celebrities that have been portrayed (e.g. Anna Nicole Smith, Marilyn Monroe, Michael Jackson etc.) had already died prior to their respective impressions.
  • Only three queens were ever immune from elimination in Snatch Game prior to competing in it. These were Tyra Sanchez, Manila Luzon and Alyssa Edwards.
    • The latter became the final queen to ever win immunity on RuPaul's Drag Race, due to her performance as Katy Perry being considered one of the worst in Snatch Game herstory (for which she was famously forced by Ru to tweet an apology to Perry 1).
  • Season 7 was the first regular season to have two winners in Snatch Game.
  • Season 8's guest celebrities, Gigi Hadid and Chanel Iman, apparently gave such poor answers to Ru's questions that he angrily stormed off set at one point to scold the producers for not preparing them better.
  • Bob The Drag Queen is the first queen to have impersonated two characters in one Snatch Game, playing Uzo Aduba and Carol Channing in Season 8.
  • Derrick Barry, Kenya Michaels, Trixie Mattel, Petchra, JAJA, Asia O'Hara, and Valentina are the only queens to impersonate celebrities who had already been impersonated and do worse in the challenge than the queen who originally did them.
  • Kim Chi was the first queen to portray a fictional character (playing 'Kimmy Jong-un'), though said character's likeness was based upon the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. She has since been followed by Gigi Goode, who portrayed Sophia (as 'Maria the Robot').
  • Cher was the first celebrity to be impersonated in back-to-back seasons, being played by Delta Work in US Season 3 and Chad Michaels in US Season 4. She has since been joined by:
    • Nancy Grace (Acid Betty - Season 8, Detox - All Stars 2)
    • Maya Angelou (Chi Chi DeVayne - All Stars 3, Monet X Change - Season 10)
    • Tiffany Haddish (Monique Heart - All Stars 4, A'keria C. Davenport - Season 11)
    • Eartha Kitt (Valentina - All Stars 4, Jujubee - All Stars 5)
  • With the exception of Tyra Sanchez, Bob The Drag Queen, Aquaria and Natalia Pliacam every season winner sat in the same row on the Snatch Game panel.
  • Latrice Royale, Manila Luzon, Alexis Mateo and Jujubee are the queens with most appearances on Snatch Game / Gaff-In, with three times each.
  • Out of the 28 queens who competed in Snatch Game /Gaff-In more than once, Tatianna and Kennedy Davenport hold the record for biggest difference in placement, going from winning their first Snatch Game to being in the bottom during their second one. However, Tatianna was eliminated in her second challenge.
  • Out of the 26 queens who competed in Snatch Game /Gaff-In more than once, Jujubee, Detox, Gia Gunn, and Latrice Royale are the only queens to land in the bottom twice.
    • Gia Gunn became the first queen ever to be eliminated twice in Snatch Game.
  • Born in 1893, Mae West is the oldest celebrity ever impersonated in Snatch Game, with the youngest one being Blue Ivy Carter, at 6 years old.
    • Though not human, Sophia "Maria" the Robot (played by Gigi Goode) is technically the youngest celebrity impersonated, having been activated on February 14, 2016. Thus making her 4 years old when her impression aired.
  • Of the celebrities who have been impersonated more than once, Beyonce, Nancy Grace, Lady Gaga, Amy Winehouse and Julia Child are the only ones who have been ranked 'low' more than once, with two 'bottom' placements each.
    • If the All Stars 5 rule of "if you're not the top queen, you're in the bottom," enacted starting with that season's Snatch Game episode, is taken into consideration then Eartha Kitt also lands in the bottom twice and Lady Gaga adds a third, a record among celebrities impersonated on the show.
  • Britney Spears, Carol Channing and Charo are the only celebrities impersonated twice where both of the impersonators were in the top placements for their good performances.
