Every Halloween season, one former reality star likes to lurk inside the Bloodview Haunted House in Broadview Heights, Ohio (just south of Cleveland).  The night we stopped by Bloodview to chat with Beki Ingram from Face Off season two, she was dressed in a black costume portraying a “shadow demon.”  During our exclusive interview with Beki, she offered behind-the-scenes details about different elements of Face Off.  With the third season about to crown a winner, it’s the perfect time to check in with Beki.  Dive inside this story to watch our exclusive interview to hear everything Beki has to say, including why watching season three makes her “anxiety ridden.”

Face Off 3 Recap: Crime Scene Creature Challenge Determines Final 3

October 24, 2012 01:16:47 by Ryan Haidet

Roy, Nicole, Laura and Derek: The final four Face Off season 3 contestants.  This week’s episode sent one more packing and left us with the final three who will compete for the grand prize in next week’s finale.  For this week’s challenge, the aspiring special effects makeup artists found themselves in Griffith Park face to face with four different over-the-top, bloody crime scenes — each with a murder victim who “died” in a not-so-normal way.  Each contestant had to choose one of the death scenarios as their motivation to create the creature that likely caused the gruesome death.  For a show based on special effects makeup, this was a really cool concept.

Face Off 3 Recap: Calling All Cyborgs!

October 17, 2012 10:57:57 by Ryan Haidet

Face Off took a robotic twist this week as the final five aspiring makeup artists worked to create an original cyborg character.  To help get them each motivated for the project, the contestants were taken to a junkyard where they gathered various parts to include in their final product.  While I didn’t think this task would interest me very much since cyborgs aren’t my thing, I was extremely impressed by some of the finished makeups.

Face Off 3 Recap: Exploring The World Of Dr. Seuss

October 10, 2012 12:48:34 by Ryan Haidet

Being on a reality show, they say, might make you famous some day.

The Face Off contents aspiring for success, found themselves in Seussian stress.

After stopping by the home of the Grinch, the contestants once again found themselves in a time pinch.

While battling to survive another round, one’s lackluster makeup sent them homeward bound.

Hey, at least it actually rhymes.

While I am definitely no Dr. Seuss, his masterful mix of words and crazy creations were used as the motivation for this week’s spotlight challenge.  Standing on the Universal Studios backlot in a snowy scene ripped straight from Dr. Seuss’s “How The Grinch Stole Christmas,” the remaining makeup artists met with host McKenzie Westmore who revealed the next spotlight challenge: To create a human-hybrid creation inspired by a character from Dr. Seuss’s “Sleep Book.”  Awesome!  I love Dr. Seuss!  Naturally, I loved the way the finished makeups came out.  Jump inside the rest of the story to see close-up photos of every Seuss makeup.

Face Off 3 Recap: One Contestant Rises From The Dead In Monster Twist

October 3, 2012 10:49:33 by Ryan Haidet

With only six contestants left in the competition, Face Off welcomed a monster twist to the competition.  “Today’s challenge could potentially change someone’s life,” host McKenzie Westmore said before revealing that all of the formerly eliminated makeup artists — except for quitter Joe — were back to compete for a shot back in the game.  Ah, ripping a twist right from Survivor.  Appropriately, the theme for the redemption-style Foundation Challenge was based on Day of the Dead since one of the five ousted artists would rise from the grave and be given new life in the competition.  Which ousted artist resurrected their life and returned to the battle?  Dive inside to find out more and to see close-up shots of all the finished makeups!

Face Off 3 Recap: Selling Out To A Video Game

September 26, 2012 09:55:52 by Ryan Haidet

Thankfully, this week’s episode of Face Off included two challenges, which this season has mostly been lacking.  Sadly, neither challenge was based on anything very compelling — the spotlight challenge was actually just a giant commercial for a video game.  It was sad to see the main motivation for the competition basically being used as an additional way to make some cash from the company promoting the new game.  Whether you believe it or not, this was totally selling out.  Despite the disappointing premise for the competition, the final makeups turned out pretty cool.  Head inside the article to see close-up pictures of the complete makeups and to find out who was eliminated!

Face Off 3 Recap: Superheroes & Sidekicks

September 19, 2012 08:23:55 by Ryan Haidet

This week’s episode of Face Off took a twist from Batman and his Batmobile by forcing the eight remaining contestants to create a superhero and sidekick that would use a specific vehicle.  While I have been a huge proponent of this show, I must admit that this episode wasn’t very compelling to me.  It’s not because the talent and creations were lackluster, but I’ve never been much of a superhero fan.  I am more of a monster guy, which is an element that this show often ties in.  I think the horror-based challenges offer more of an interesting turnout.  There are loads of photos of all the finished superhero creations inside!

Face Off 3 Recap: Alice In Wonderland Gets Infected

September 12, 2012 12:41:38 by Ryan Haidet

The main challenge on this week’s episode of Face Off was one of the coolest the show has ever seen.  Each of the contestants had to create a completely original take on one of the iconic characters from “Alice in Wonderland” that had become a virus-infected zombie.  What a cool concept!  Unfortunately for one contestant, their creativity didn’t pay off as the judges sent another packing.
