“This is the most disturbing thing I’ve seen in ages.” What on earth had judge Ve Neill gushing that praise? It came from one contestant’s creepy horror villain created for the latest Spotlight Challenge on Face Off. But these weren’t just any new horror villains. Oh, no. These were vile villains with style. Check out photos of each finished freaky makeup and find out who was slashed from the competition inside this article.
Face Off let it all hang out tonight with lots of bare butts and side boob. Yes, the nude body painting challenge was back. Since this show airs at 9 p.m. on SyFy, the censors ease up a bit only blurring the main private parts leaving very little to the imagination. If nudity bothers you, hopefully you put the kids to bed early tonight and didn’t let them stay awake to watch because there was lots of flesh for them to feast their eyes on. If you’re at work, you may not want to click into this story as some of the naked images are probably not suitable for your office. Warning! Bare butts and boobs ahead…
Have I mentioned that I don’t particularly care for the coach concept this season of Face Off? Yeah, I’m pretty sure I’ve whined about the twist for every recap I’ve written about it — and the latest episode solidified my thoughts. This time around, one of the coaches gave “advice” that I didn’t think was actually fair to some of the contestants. This episode did, however, deliver one of the coolest challenge concepts the show has ever seen! Find out who was sent packing and take a closer look at all 11 finished makeups inside!
Claws and ears? Both were the basis for two new challenges on Face Off. The latter definitely proved to be a stressful concept for the 12 remaining contestants who were tasked with creating a makeup motivated by a unique sound. Cool, right? The makeups were even cooler! See who was most successful and find out who the judges sent packing. Plus, find out why one of the returning champions was replaced in this episode. All that and more inside this article!
After several weeks of confusing situations regarding which contestant worked on what portion of a specific makeup, Face Off finally forced the aspiring makeup artists to create their own creatures alone. Thank goodness! I was really getting frustrated with how the judging process was going down at the Face Off reveal stage because nothing was easy to follow regarding each person’s efforts. Instead it was very disjointed and distracting — especially by adding extra focus on a guest judge like “Hunger Games” star Josh Hutcherson. What made this hour even better? This challenge brought a twist on Tim Burton into the mix. Always cool! Find out who went home and take a look at pictures of each completed makeup inside this article!
Did you hear the screaming? It was the piercing shrills of women across the country feasting their eyes on Face Off season 8′s third episode as “Hunger Games” star Josh Hutcherson joined the judges’ panel. Wait. Did you hear that? It was me unleashing my loudest “ugh.” I have nothing against the kid, I swear. I just don’t think he’s qualified to judge a special makeup effects contest. He ACTS in makeup. He isn’t an expert in actually CREATING the makeup. It’s the same concept as having Arnold Schwarzenegger judge a ballet contest. Well, that may be a bit far, but you get my point, right? Seriously, we went from the astounding, award-winning star Rick Baker, who has created some of the best makeup ever seen on film (hello, “Werewolf in London” transformation scene) to a Teen Choice Awards-winning, “Teen Bop” coverguy? Ummm… Yeah. With that said, the episode was the best of the season to date with some truly stellar makeups. Jump inside to see pictures of each complete makeup and to find out who was eliminated.
Right where we left off last week, the second episode of Face Off‘s eighth season was a continuation of the “cliffhanger” premiere as the 15 contestants faced a surprise twist. In addition to creating two aliens that crash landed their spacecraft, they were given the task of making a third character: A primate ruler unhappy the aliens have arrived. This challenge finally gave us a great first glimpse at the talent on hand this season and delivered the first elimination. See who was sent packing inside!
Yes, it’s true. I haven’t recapped Face Off since the finale of season 4. Despite the written absence, my eyes haven’t shied away from the monster makeup effects show — and there’s no better time to do it. Face Off, now in its 8th season on SyFy, has unleashed a new twist: Return of the Champions. Although this concept is nothing new to reality television (hello, Big Brother 14), it’s a first for this series. Am I thrilled with the idea? Eh. Not really. But I have high hopes it will pay off. Anywho, the premiere episode (a two-parter to be continued) kicked off with a cast of excited newbies teaming up with one of three returning winners. While the new aspiring special effects makeup artists are loads of fun, there was something missing from this episode.
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?
If you were planning to gobble up a ghastly gob of new Ghost Hunters investigations with the expected return of season nine tonight, think again! There’s been a schedule change — a big one. The mid-season premiere of Ghost Hunters was supposed to haunt your television with a new episode tonight, but SyFy’s reality hit is taking a much longer hiatus than initially planned. When can you expect fresh investigations from the TAPS team to air? We’ve got the details lurking inside. Read on… if you dare!
