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 3-11, and is a highly anticipated episode by viewers.

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 season of All Stars, the Snatch Game segment was based on The Dating Game show.
  • 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.
  • Tamar Braxton and Michelle Visage are the only celebrities to be impersonated on the show and later appear as a guest celebrities on Snatch Game.
  • Tamar Braxton, Raven-Symoné, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, Kesha, Jenifer Lewis, and Tiffany Pollard are the only celebrities to be impersonated on the show and later appear as guest judges.
  • Metinee "Lukkade" Kingpayom is the only celebrity to be impersonated on the show and also appears as a guest celebrity on Snatch Game and a guest judge during the same episode.
  • 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.
  • Alyssa Edwards was the last queen in the show ever to be given immunity, as she was saved on Season 5's Snatch Game despite giving arguably the worst performance of the episode.
  • Season 7 is the only 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‘s episode. This was later followed up by Nina West in Season 11, who played Harvey Fierstein and Jo Anne Worley.
  • 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.
  • Jessica Wild, Alaska, Kennedy Davenport, Violet Chachki, Max, Thorgy Thor, Roxxxy Andrews, Aja, Nina Bo'Nina Brown, Trixie Mattel, BenDeLaCreme, Nina West, Sum Ting Wong and The Vivienne are the only queens to impersonate a male in Snatch Game.
    • Out of these queens, only Kennedy Davenport, Thorgy Thor, BenDeLaCreme, Nina West, Sum Ting Wong and The Vivienne impersonated a male who is not a drag queen, though Harvey Fierstein (Nina West’s character in Season 11) is well-known for performing characters in drag on stage.
    • Aja is the only queen to portray a male in both times she competed in Snatch Game.
    • Kim Chi portrayed a male character, but as a gender-bent version as Kimmy Jong-un. This also technically makes her the first queen to not impersonate a real person (not counting BenDeLaCreme of Season 6, who impersonated Dame Maggie Smith as her Downton Abbey character Violet Crawley).
  • With the exception of Tyra Sanchez, Bob The Drag Queen, and Aquaria, every season winner sat in the same row on the Snatch Game panel.
  • Latrice Royale and Manila Luzon 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 holds the record for biggest difference in placement, going from winning her first Snatch Game to being eliminated during her second one. However Kennedy Davenport went from winning her first Snatch Game to being placed in the bottom 3 in her second.
  • 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.
    • Dorothy Parker was also born in 1893, but is 5 days younger than Mae West.
  • Nancy Grace, Lady Gaga, Amy Winehouse and Julia Child are the only celebrities impersonated twice whose both of the impersonators landed in the bottom for their poor performances.
    • Beyonce has been impersonated three times, and two of the three times, the queen impersonating her landed in the bottom.
  • Britney Spears, Carol Channing and Charo are the only celebrities impersonated twice where both of the impersonators either won or were in the top for their good performances.
    • Interestingly enough, Britney Spears and Carol Channing both impersonated in the Snatch Game of Season 2 and Season 8. Charo was impersonated during Gaff-In on All Stars 1 and on Season 11.
  • BenDeLaCreme is the only queen to win Snatch Game twice, winning the challenge as Maggie Smith in Season 6 and as Paul Lynde in All Stars 3 where she tied with Shangela's Jenifer Lewis.
  • Kristin Chenoweth has been the only celebrity to participate as a panelist in Snatch Game.
  • Bob The Drag Queen, Jinkx Monsoon, Alaska and Aquaria are the only season winners to win the Snatch Game
  • Tyra Sanchez, Violet Chachki, Trixie Mattel, Monét X Change, & Yvie Oddly are the only season winners to not score high or win the Snatch Game.
    • Trixie Mattel & Yvie Oddly are the only season winners to have landed in the bottom during the Snatch Game episode (though if it wasn’t for Tyra’s immunity in Season 2’s Snatch Game, she most likely would have placed in the bottom too).
    • Yvie Oddly is the first winner to have to lip-sync for her life in a Snatch Game episode.
    • Monet was actually in the top 3 for her Snatch Game in Season 10, but was not for her winning season - All Stars 4.
  • Stacy Layne Matthews and Alexis Michelle are the only queens to have won Snatch Game and not either won their seasons or competed on a season of All Stars.
  • Tormai is the the first queen to win Snatch Game yet be sent home on the same day.
  • Despite Yara Sofia’s impression of Amy Winehouse in Season 3 placing low at the time, Michelle Visage retrospectively called it a great performance during the Snatch Game episode of Season 9.
  • Nicki Minaj and Amy Winehouse are the first celebrities to be impersonated on more than one iteration of the franchise, having both been represented in the US and Thai versions. Meanwhile, Amy and Nicki were impersonated on different seasons of Drag Race US, but the same season of Drag Race Thailand.
    • This feat was later followed by Divina De Campo’s impersonation of Julia Child on Season 1 of the UK series, who was previously impersonated by Milk on Season 6 of the US series.
  • Season 11 was the first season where nobody was eliminated in a Snatch Game episode.
    • It was also the first season where both the season’s winner (Yvie Oddly) and runner-up (Brooke Lynn Hytes) placed in the bottom two for Snatch Game.
  • Baga Chipz and The Vivienne are the first joint winners of Snatch Game on a UK season, as well as the first UK winners overall.
