It’s hard to believe it, but Face Off has already made it to season five! Syfy is switching things up this time around, pitting several of the show’s favorite alums against a batch of rookies. What else can we expect from the new season?
The long wait is finally over – the Syfy hit reality show Face Off is back! The premiere of season five is set to air tonight at 9 pm EST. Included will be many old favorites from years past, including such familiar faces as Frank Ippolito, Alana Rose Schiro, RJ Haddy and Roy Wooley. Eager for redemption, these vets will be facing off (pun intended) against a group of new contestants. On hand to explain why the alums were booted ot last time are judges Glenn Hetrick, Ve Neill and Neville Page. For the premiere, they will also be joined by guest judge and Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke.
Dubbed the “most spectacular yet,” this season of Face Off is sure to include plenty of great surprises. The premiere will start the ball rolling with a challenge in which contestants must prepare guests for an elaborate costume ball. Further challenges are also sure to showcase the talents of contestants new and old, as well as their ability to work under pressure. If they do manage to perform well, the rewards could be extensive. After all, the winner will snag a cool $100,000, plus a 2013 Fiat and a VIP trip to one of the 85 Kryolan Professional Make-Up locations. Not bad!
