Drag Race UK played the Snatch Game and the internet seriously can’t handle it

The Vivienne as Donald Trump

The Drag Race UK queens tightened their tucks this week for the Snatch Game, and the internet was blown away.

Since RuPaul first announced he was bringing Drag Race to UK shores, fans have been clamouring at the bit for a British version of the legendary game show challenge.

Snatch Game is the challenge that separates the wheat from the chaff, and is a highlight of every season.

With the entire history of British culture to mine, the internet could not wait to see who the queens chose.

Bring on Snatch Game! If there’s no Kim Woodburn or Gemma Collins I’ll be bitterly disappointed #DragRaceUK pic.twitter.com/PtxONvoIC7

To the confusion of, well, everyone, Sum Ting Wong chose to impersonate David Attenborough over kitchen goddess Nigella Lawson.

Having teased Cilla Black and Kim Woodburn, The Vivienne grabbed the competition by its p**** with her uncanny Donald Trump.

Not only did The Vivienne step up her pussy, she grabbed an amazing victory lap. (Ugghh… I’m sorry y’all with the P word but that’s the vernacular of drag and tRump!) #SnatchGame #DragRaceUK https://t.co/xynTnRonB0

She was joined by Sum Ting Wong, whose runway was more lukewarm than ‘Toxic’.

Okay but did anyone else get a Britney Spears vibe from @IsSumTingWong’s runway look this week????? #DragRaceUK #RuPaulsDragRaceUK #SnatchGame #BritneySpears pic.twitter.com/QHqjsLyU5y

In the end, Sum Ting Wong was asked to sashay away, to the devastation of her die-hard fans.

@IsSumTingWong getting eliminated is a worse tragedy than global warming possibly ending us all in the next 7 years
