RuPaul's Drag Race 'is a contact sport' as Eureka actually slaps Miz Cracker during wild challenge
M&M's melt in your mouth and cookies crumble, but judging by EW's exclusive preview of the upcoming episode of RuPaul's Drag Race season 10, even the tiniest crackers can take a b—- slap and keep on trucking.
The hilarious teaser previews an impending acting challenge in which the queens are tasked with creating commercials for a series of fictional dating apps. Grouped together to film their spot in front of judges Carson Kressley and Michelle Visage, Eureka, Blair St. Clair, The Vixen, and Miz Cracker scheme a "campy and over-the-top" ad for "End of Days," a religiously inclined app that's "for more than just the gays," per St. Clair.
The group's scene begins as St. Clair mourns "the end of the world" to Eureka and Cracker as they skim through biblical verses on a pristine sofa.
"I can't die tired or hungry or worse… a virgin!" St. Clair says as she struts past them. "Sweetheart, snap out of it!" Cracker shouts before miming a smack across St. Clair's face, which prompts Eureka's character to scold Cracker's for being "such a drama queen." She then thumps a Bible square on Cracker's cheek — and actually lands the blow.
"It's method!" Cracker says as she collects herself, defending Eureka when Michelle cuts the take. In a playful nod to RuPaul's final words to season 3 queen Mimi Imfurst after she infamously hoisted India Ferrah into the air against her will during a lip sync, Cracker continues: "Drag is a contact sport!"
RuPaul's Drag Race season 10 airs Thursdays at 8:00 p.m. ET on VH1. Watch the clip above.
