Top 10 Celebrityh Reactions to Their Snatch Game Impressions

Welcome to MsMojo, and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top 10 Celebrity Reactions to Their Snatch Game Impressions.

For this list, we’ll be looking at instances of stars reacting to their portrayals in the Snatch Game challenge on “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”

Which of these responses is the most tabloid-worthy? Let us know in the comments below!

#10: Lil Jon

Season 14’s Snatch Game had some issues, and that’s putting it lightly. The weakness of the performances overall resulted in the unforgettable lip sync smackdown the following week. However, DeJa Skye’s performance as the Atlanta rapper was the obvious bright spot in an underwhelming showing. While promoting her success in the challenge on Twitter, DeJa posted additional photos of her in character. Lil Jon then replied "KILLED IT” with a hands-in-the-air emoji. Clearly over the moon, the queen also tweeted about how much Jon loved her impersonation. While we didn’t see a filmed reaction from the artist himself, we’re glad DeJa’s transformation got the co-sign.

#9: Björk

Katya is known as one of the most hilarious queens to ever compete on “Drag Race.” Her off-kilter brand of humor perfectly complimented her choice of character in the “All Stars” 2 Snatch Game. Katya’s impression of the famously quirky singer-songwriter was as weird as could be, and we loved every moment of it. As it turns out, so did the Icelandic artist herself. In an “Ask Me Anything” discussion on Reddit, she heaped praise on Katya’s impression. Although she admitted she longed for references to her “Vulnicura” era, it was clear she found the impersonation outrageous yet accurate.

#8: Jonathan Van Ness

Each cast member of Netflix’s “Queer Eye” reboot has become a breakout star in their own right. But the Fab Five’s hairstylist and beauty guru “JVN” has become a truly iconic television presence. From their signature ‘do to their unfailingly peppy attitude, their on-screen persona is perfect Snatch Game material. Thankfully, Chicago queen Denali did the mustachioed star justice. In fact, Van Ness declared the impersonation a “major life moment” on Twitter. And we haven’t even got to their Instagram post of a screencap from the episode. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery — and Denali’s was spot-on.

#7: Tamar Braxton

Boom! Roxxxy Andrews stood out in Season 5’s Snatch Game, despite competing with some unforgettable performances like Jinkx Monsoon’s Little Edie. Her irreverent interpretation of the Braxton sister was thoroughly entertaining and full of memorable catchphrases. In the season’s final episode, Roxxxy got a rousing video message from Tamar herself praising the impression. During the same segment, drag icon Lady Bunny also had some hilarious words for her Snatch Game impersonator Alaska. It was a surprising moment in the climactic episode, and it made the performances feel all the more special.

#6: Leslie Jones

This former “SNL” cast member is known amongst "Drag Race” fans for her animated live tweetings of the show. Funnily enough, Season 12’s Snatch Game episode was no exception. Heidi N Closet was nearly in hot water with Jones, as the comedienne seemed to take offense to being characterized as "thirsty” during Ru’s walk through. Heidi replied on Twitter, explaining that this was a reference to Jones’s flirtatious persona from “Weekend Update.” Although the actress questioned some less successful performances, she called Heidi “hilarious” and gave her an “A for effort.” From a comic extraordinaire like her, that’s high praise.

#5: Judge Judy

Ru’s love for Judge Judith Sheindlin is well-documented. The pressure was on, then, for Season 6 comedy queen Bianca Del Rio to capture the TV star’s one-of-a-kind personality. Thankfully, the performance was anything but “baloney.” Although she was edged out by BenDeLaCreme, Bianca was a definite standout in the Snatch Game. Shockingly, fans and cast members alike were treated to a cameo from Judy herself at the end of the finale. In a video from behind her bench, she praised Bianca’s impression and gave a touching shout-out to her famous fan. Considering the judge’s legendary status, we can only imagine the impact this statement had on Bianca and Ru alike.

#4: Patricia Quinn

Has a celebrity ever reacted quite so strongly to the Snatch Game? Aiden Zhane’s decision to portray the actress famous for “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” was… interesting. Sadly, her characterization didn’t extend much beyond the star being a kooky old lady. Besides not excelling at the challenge, Aiden’s performance had the unfortunate side effect of offending its inspiration. Quinn released a statement through her manager, in which she expressed disappointment with “being depicted as a washed-up actress who has taken too many drugs.” Perhaps most shockingly, the actress said she was left feeling “disgusted.”

#3: Lisa Rinna

Jackie Cox and Lisa Rinna are a truly star-crossed pair. On “Watch What Happens Live,” Jackie impersonated the Beverly Hills housewife to her face, complete with a “QVC”-ready clothing rack. So the queen’s choice for the Snatch Game was a no-brainer. At the Season 12 reunion, we were treated to a personalized video from Rinna with a surprise guest. It was a heartfelt message that clearly meant a lot to Jackie. The performers later collaborated in “Days Of Our Lives: Beyond Salem,” and Rinna praised Jackie in a promotional interview. Although we won’t “talk about the husband,” we could talk about this dynamic duo to no end.

#2: Paris Hilton

Gottmik delivered arguably one of the best-ever “Drag Race” comedy performances in Season 13. Perhaps due to her professional history with the reality TV star, Gottmik had Hilton’s voice and persona down. However, the queen also had original ideas for making her inspiration truly hilarious. In a video on Gottmik’s YouTube channel, she showed how she put together the instantly memorable Snatch Game look. At the end, Paris appeared via video chat and heaped praise on her impersonator. There’s something particularly exciting about seeing a celeb discuss their portrayal with the challenge winner herself. In a word? “Gorge.”

#1: Carol Channing

Bob the Drag Queen’s comedy chops were no secret on Season 8. Nonetheless, it was extremely impressive for the competitor to pull off two very different impressions in one Snatch Game. What made Bob’s performance even more memorable was the fact that it garnered two separate shout-outs. On Twitter, Uzo Aduba summed up her impression with the word “Bravo,” which Bob addressed at the finale. But arguably the most heartwarming tribute came from the legendary Carol Channing. The actress’s video message was both surprising and absolutely touching. It made an already enjoyable finale truly one for the books.
