The library is open! Monday’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race sees the painted-and-shady ranks of the reality show’s family growing by one (albeit wigless) member: EW’s own Marc Snetiker.

Snetiker enters the Werk Room as a judge during the annual “reading” challenge, which features the seven remaining drag queens — Chi Chi DeVayne, Bob the Drag Queen, Thorgy Thor, Derrick Barry, Naomi Smalls, Kim Chi, and Robbie Turner — taking turns throwing major shade at one another.

In honor of EW’s Drag Race recaps, RuPaul explains, “in the great tradition of Paris is Burning, the library is about to be open, darling! Because reading is what? Fundamental!”

From season 4’s Latrice Royale calling out Willam Belli’s hairy chin to season 7’s Kennedy Davenport telling Trixie Mattell her face looked like “the back of a babboon’s ass,” the reading challenge has become a fan-favorite over the past eight seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Snetiker will reveal one winner during the full segment, which airs Monday at 9 p.m. ET on Logo. For now, check out the preview in the video below.
