This week on RuPaul's Drag Race, were were treated to an annual tradition: The Snatch Game. The game test a queen's ability to ad lib, their pop culture savvy, and how well they can impersonate a celebrity. It separates the drag chaff from the wheat, the good from the bad, the Laganja Estranja from the talented.
In the end, Ben De La Creme rode his adorkable Maggie Smith impression to a first-place finish. Gia Gunn and Ms. Estranja sunk to the bottom two, with Estranja barely eeking out a victory thanks to a couple of death drops. Here's how we saw things this week:
Adore Delano: There's a messiness — not to mention a youthful obnoxiousness — to Adore that makes it hard to love her. Or, rather, hard to admit you love her, lest you incur the incredulity and scorn of your friends. But honestly, forget that. Why waste time equivocating with Adore after that uncanny Anna Nicole Smith in Snatch Game? Adore managed to do more than just nail Anna Nicole, though. While her runway look still pinged Michelle's radar as messy (the wig was a problem, for sure, although if this week's runway task revealed anything, it was the wide gulf between the quality of wigs that Ru wears/can afford and the ratty abominations most of these queens come with), that cinched waist, courtesy of an assist from Bianca, pulled her look together, quite literally. And Adore continues to nail it in the backstage segments. Her assessment of Gia Gunn's misbegotten Selena impersonation ("What's she gonna do? 'Oh, I love pizza, I got shot by Yolanda'?") was hilarious, and she shut Laganja's bullshit down immediately on Untucked. Team Adore, honestly.
