Snatch Game — the RuPaul’s Drag Race challenge that separates the contenders from the filler, and the corn from the cumin. Since Season 2 of the OG franchise, this challenge has provided some of the show’s highest highs (“Is that my camera?”) and lowest lows (“Snookie wants to smoosh smoosh”) as literally hundreds of queens both domestic and international have attempted to impersonate celebrities with varying degrees of success. And we love every second of it. Now the Great Pop Culture Debate podcast wants to determine the Best Snatch Game Performance of all time (at least, up until mid-2022, when we recorded this)! RAAAAASPBERRIES!

Join host Eric Rezsnyak and panelists Andrea Guerrero, Curtis Creekmore, Derek Mekita, Gary Jackson, and Jonny Minogue as they fill in the blanks and discuss the best Snatch Game performances in the history of “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”
