It’s undeniable that Bimini Bon Boulash stole Snatch Game with their take on Katie Price, delivering a warm, intelligent tribute along with the more obvious teasing and obligatory tracksuit. The nature of the Drag Race UK performance was made even clearer in a following tweet, with Bimini saying: “I also ADORE AND LOVE Katie Price and I always have. She’s an absolute icon and I hope I did her proud.”
Now, we’ve got confirmation that the Pricey did, in fact, appreciate the impersonation. In a new commentary video shared to her eponymous YouTube channel, she sits down with her kids to watch the episode, reacting to some of the priceless lines (see: “my implants got held at gunpoint in South Africa”).
“I think that’s fantastic,” Price says at the end of the clip, adding that Bimini’s evaluation is pretty spot on. “I can take the piss out of myself, and I do. If you can’t take the piss out of yourself, who can you take the piss out of?”
“It’s quite iconic to know that someone wanted to dress up as me,” she adds, saying that she’d love to get together and “do a dress up”. Notably, she also says that she’d “love” to go on the show – guest judge spot incoming? Reacting to the video, Bimini appears equally (and predictably) excited, tweeting: “Ahhhh I love you Katie Price!!!!”
Earlier this week, Bimini also starred in an exclusive editorial for Dazed, arriving alongside a dark, avant-garde short film. Last month, meanwhile, saw the iconic fashion queen take to the runway as part of Art School’s poignant AW21 show during London Fashion Week.
