Howdy folks. Since last week's live blogging went well, I am back again this week - hopefully with less technical difficulties. rupaul.jpegThe show starts at 9:00EST on LOGO. If you need to catch up, check out my previous recaps of Episode 2, Episode 3, and Episode 4. See ya at 9:00.

Ok folks. Let's get this show started. Follow my updates below the jump.


Yay Snatch Game! Tonight is my favorite episode of every season - celeb impersonations! I'm calling it for Chad Michaels' Cher. What are your predictions?


Mini Challenge time: Beat the Cock.

3 rounds w/ 3 contestants each. Winner is a call home.


Pin the cock on Ru?

Sharon Needles + McCain Palin shirt = my favorite goth princess.


Choke the rooster and lay an egg. And Phi Phi wins the call home.


Main Challenge: Celeb impersonations in the game show Snatch Game.

Sharon Needles = Michelle Visage (Always dangerous to play a judge)
Chad Michael = Cher (Duh!)
Dida Ritz = Wendy Williams
Jiggly Caliente = Snooki
Kenya Michaels = Beyonce
Latrice Royale = Aretha Franklin (YES!)
Milan = Diana Ross
Phi Phi O'Hare = Lady Gaga
Willam = Jessica Simpson (Is she still around?)


Time for Ru's check-in:

Phi Phi - Ru Is doubtful because of the failed Gaga's in the past. But Phi Phi has experience.

Kenya - Beyonce is a risk due to her accent.

Willam - I think he might actually pull it off - just act stupid

Milan - Go too far? I'm sensing some foreshadowing.

Chad - I owe Cher everything (duh)

Sharon - You know you are supposed to be impersonating a woman! Ha!

No Jiggly Check-in: Safe

No Latrice Check-in: Safe

No Dida Check-in: Safe


Tonight's guest Judges(and Snatch Game Contestants): Loretta Devine and Ross Matthews.


I'm gonna go ahead and call a bottom when I see it: Diana Ross and Lady Gaga.


Calling all tops: Michelle Visage and Cher(Wig change with every cut!)


Not the best snatch I've seen, but not the worst.


Latrice - I didn't know you cared so much? Good choice with Aretha cause you are being a diva.


Runway time. Dressed to impress.

Chad - giraffe realness. That's a new one.

Milan - pants are not going to go well for you after that shitty Ms. Ross

Sharon - I normally have a fear of surgery and needles - but you are changing my mind.


Safe: Called it - Latrice, Jiggly, Dida

Tops: Called it - Cher (Chad Michaels), Jessica Simpson (Willam), Michelle Visage (Sharon Needles - the real Michelle loves it - I smell a win)

Bottoms: Called it - Diana Ross (Milan, looks like a man), Lady Gaga (Phi Phi), Beyonce (Kenya)


And the winner is: CALLED IT - Chad Michaels/Cher

Willam? What the hell was that mood swing?

And our lip syncers: Kenya (WHAT?), and Milan.


Vogue off: Milan's pants may help here.

Milan lives on.

Kenya (WHAT?), Sache away.

There goes our last Latina Queen. Sadness.

That's it folks. Let me know what your thoughts were about tonight's episode, and I'll see ya this time next week.
