Miss Vanjie might catch herself outside the RuPaul’s Drag Race competition if her Bhad Bhabie Snatch Game impression flops.

Preparation for the fan-favorite celebrity impersonation challenge gets shady in EW exclusive sneak peek at tonight’s season 11 episode, as Mama Ru and Drag Race season 5 winner (and ace Little Edie imitator) Jinkx Monsoon enter the Werk Room to give Miss Vanjie a crash course in Snatch Game preparation.

After Vanjie informs the pair that she’ll sport a red wig as Dr. Phil breakout Danielle “Catch me outside” Bregoli (a.k.a. viral rapper Bhad Bhabie), both raise an eyebrow at the queen’s strategy.

“[I’ll be] acting like her, addressing Ru as ‘Dr. Phil,’ stuff like that,” Vanjie says, to which RuPaul responds sarcastically: “That sounds like a God damned laugh riot!”

Vanjie quickly defends herself by saying it will be funnier in application, though Ru counters by saying she’s heard it all before: “Everybody says that,” Ru quips. “On your audition reel, you had La Toya. Did you think about doing La Toya Jackson?”

“I know she’s a friend of the show, and I wouldn’t feel comfortable stepping on those boundaries,” Vanjie answers, but Ru isn’t having it: “Oh please, bitch!” he responds. “If you’re doing it with love, there’s no disrespect!”

Jinkx then chimes in, asking Vanjie to recall Detox’s poorly received impression of close friend Kesha.

“Detox playing Kesha took a pee onstage, and it was like, how are we supposed to laugh at that?” Jinks recalls. “Detox learned a big lesson from that: Just going for the lowest common denominator doesn’t always cut it if you’ve got someone else doing a sophisticated performance up against you.”

Later, in a confessional, Vanjie weighs her prospects moving forward.

“Bitch, I am shook, scared, panicking, stand-still mannequin!” she admits. “I don’t know what the f— is going to happen now!”

See if Vanjie switches up her Snatch Game plot when RuPaul’s Drag Race returns tonight at 9 p.m. ET on VH1. Watch EW’s exclusive preview above.
