Face Off 3 Recap: Dragon Dance

September 5, 2012 06:32:44 by Ryan Haidet

Face Off, one of the best reality shows currently on television, continued tonight with yet another fun-filled hour of masterful makeup talent.  For the third spotlight challenge of the season, the 10 remaining contestants were paired up in teams to create a completely original take on the traditional Chinese New Year dragon.  The twist?  Each creation had to perform a choreographed high-action dance in front of the judges on the reveal stage.  Each contestant also had to implement traits into their creations from their personal sign of the zodiac.  In the end, the final products weren’t my favorite makeups I’ve ever seen on the show, but the majority were impressive nonetheless.

Face Off 3 Recap: Pirate Battle

August 29, 2012 06:45:39 by Ryan Haidet

Tuesday’s episode of Face Off began with immediate drama.  Rod — last week’s top makeup artist — was walking around with his wrist wrapped up as he explained to others that he hurt himself during the first challenge.  But despite his injury, he wasn’t going to quit as they dashed into the second major challenge of the season  — creating an original pirate character who has become one with the sea.  As the first individual spotlight challenge, the 11 remaining contestants were randomly assigned to a specific item they had to incorporate with their character.  And, in a Face Off first, the person with the best makeup would win pirate’s booty worth $5,000.

Face Off 3 Recap: The Masterful Makeup Monster Mash Is Back!

August 21, 2012 11:00:48 by Ryan Haidet

It’s back!  One of the best reality shows on television has returned with yet another awesome season filled with talent.  But there was a bit of mystery heading into tonight’s big debut of Face Off‘s third season.  If you look at the official cast photos, you will only see 11 new contestants.  But throughout tonight’s big 90-minute premiere there were 12 people in the game competing for the $100,000 top prize.  Joe is the missing 12th contestant from those images despite being a major focal point throughout the entire premiere.  But why on earth would SyFy leave out one of their contestants from the official cast photos?  I’m guessing it has something to do with his unexpected actions at the reveal stage prior to the first elimination.  On top of that, he’s part of an absolutely terrible final makeup that is so bad the judges don’t even want to look at it.

August 20, 2012 08:00:09 by Ryan Haidet

Wow.  Fun.  Exciting.  Entertaining.  Those words are the best way for me to explain the upcoming premiere episode of Face Off season three on SyFy.  As a fan of the show, I was lucky enough to receive a DVD screener of season three’s first episode and it definitely delivers the goods.  On top of showcasing some outstanding makeup talent, the 90-minute debut features the most drama Face Off has ever seen.  That drama leads to something that has never ever happened at the Face Off reveal stage.  Excited yet?
