On VH1's "RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars," it is fair to say that Miz Cracker will likely make it to the final three. She became a fan favorite on Season 10 of "RuPaul's Drag Race," where she finished in the top five.

Her success on that season has led to her to engage with over a million followers on Instagram and Twitter, as well as touring the country with her solo show. She also writes on LGBTQ issues for such publications as Slate, ArtForum, Vice and GQ.

This season of "All Stars" (the fifth) was filmed before the pandemic. Page Six caught up with Miz Cracker (aka Maxwell Heller) for an audio interview where she talks about what's she been up to while in lockdown.

"For a long time, I was building a little model house out of popsicle sticks and hot glue. Then I started realizing that was a little too like the movie 'Hereditary' for me," she told Page Six.

She has also reconnected with drag. "I've gotten a chance to love it and appreciate it again and actually do it for its own sake."

Asked about political activism, Miz Cracker explained that it was her mentor, Bob the Drag Queen, who made her aware that drag was political every time she got on a subway car. "And she (Bob the Drag Queen) was like, 'well, if I'm going to have everyone's attention, I may as well use it to say something important.' And she always taught me that that kind of activism was as much a part of drag as lashes and heels, if not more."

And while mostly mum on the current season of "All Stars," she did say: "So just buckle up and expect something really crazy because this is not season 12. OK? We are not 'best friends' race. This is a whole different — we are 'RuPaul's 'at-arm's-length' Race' at best. It will be really interesting to watch."
