Here's Who Kornbread Would Have Played in the Snatch Game

Fans of RuPaul's Drag Race are still reeling from last week's dramatic exit of beloved queen and competitor Kornbread "The Snack" Jeté

Although it was for good reasons, as Kornbread suffered an ankle injury from the previous week's main challenge and needed a few weeks to recover and get back into better health, viewers were still so sad to see her go, especially since so many wanted to see more of what she was going to bring to the competition. The Snatch Game, one of Drag Race's most popular main challenges, is a particular moment every season that stans look forward to since the queens get to impersonate their favorite Hollywood celebrities, but because of her early departure, we weren't able to see Kornbread shine in that challenge.

Well, in a recent interview with the Gay Times, the 30-year-old drag performer gave an inside look at who she would have played on Snatch Game if she was still in the competition, and her choice would have been a hilarious one!

"I was gonna do Leslie Jordan because we look nothing like each other," Kornbread revealed, saying she was getting ready to play the out, gay Will & Grace star and meme king. "He’s a funny, short, Caucasian man – I’m the complete opposite! But I enjoy his mannerisms and his speech and his tone."

But a Leslie Jordan impersonation wasn't the only thing Drag Race fans missed out on. Elsewhere in the interview, Kornbread opened up about her musical theater roots and how she was so looking forward to slaying the Rusical challenge this season. 

"I think the challenge I was most disappointed to miss out on is definitely the Rusical," she added. "I’m a musical theatre major so that was the one I was most excited for."

Though she had to go home, it's safe to say Kornbread left a great and lasting impression on the fandom. She's currently the most-followed season 14 queen on social media after making history for being one of this season's two out trans women, alongside her good friend Kerri Colby, competing for the crown.

"I've known Kerri before this, we've been friends before this," Kornbread told Out earlier this year about how Colby was one of the first people she ever came out to. "Fun fact, Kerri was one of the first people that I came out to as trans. She actually helped me through my journey. The peak of me starting everything was actually going to Drag Race and she knew some stuff, but no one else knew anything about it. So it's good to have that kind of comfort person there as well as somebody that knows exactly what you're going through and who's gonna calm you down when your mood swings are about to pop up, because they happen."

"She's one of my favorite human beings on the planet and extremely sweet, extremely funny, and extremely humble," she added. "No matter how gorgeous the bitch looks, I promise you he's a very humble and sweet person and very caring, so I'm here for her."

Hopefully, Kornbread will return to a future season of Drag Race so that she can keep showing the world the kind of drag superstar she truly is!

Season 14 of RuPaul's Drag Race is currently airing new episodes on Friday nights at 8pm on VH1.
