The RuPaul’s Drag Race UK spin off in the works that features The Vivienne and Baga Chipz‘s parody of Donald Trump and Margaret Thatcher, as RuPaul‘s infamous ‘Snatch Game‘ prompted another new show for the booming franchise.
The Snatch Game is a favorite recurring challenge among many Drag Race ‘stans.’ Dragtestants are tasked to do a celebrity impression in the auditions to even appear on the show, in addition to around the middle of each season. For the first time, the Snatch Game is getting a spin-off.
In season one of the UK’s Drag Race, the champion, The Vivienne, and finalist, Baga Chipz, made standout appearances in popular game. Portraying Donald Trump and Margaret Thatcher, the queens stole the show, with equally impressive impersonations, delectable humor, and flawless comedic timing. The Vivienne’s Trump impression will go down in Drag Race herstory, literally….
According to Out.com, “Launching Thursday, December 12, Vivienne and Chipz will reprise those roles for a spinoff show. Titled Morning T&T, the show is styled like a morning news broadcast. There hasn’t been much of any information announced about the series, except the tagline: “All tea, no quid pro quo.” Reports state the show will be a spoof of Good Morning, Britain and Good Morning America.
Pinknews.co.uk reported, “It’s Donald Trump and Maggie Thatcher having this weird on-screen romance, reading ridiculous news stories, some true and some false.” The Vivienne explained, “This is the pinnacle of morning television ladies and gentleman,” in the trailer as Trump.
In case you missed it, judge Michelle Visage critiqued, “The Vivienne’s performance one of the best in the game show’s history.” The Vivienne told Pink News she wanted “to make a bloody idiot of him.”
The Vivienne added that Morning T&T promises “a lot of fake news” and described it as “ridiculous.” Sign me up!
