Face Off will be returning for a fourth season of transformations and putting impressive talent on display in 2013, Syfy announced today. TheÂ show, presently in its thirdÂ season (andÂ second of 2012), has quickly become one of the network’s highest rated programs, earning the critical praise to match itsÂ strong performance.
Face Off pits a group ofÂ special-effects make-up artists against one another in aÂ series of challenges meant to test their technicalÂ skills, ability to think on the fly, and creative vision. In the thirdÂ season, the contestants have had to turn a child artist’s drawing and imagination into reality, create a Chinese New Year dragon that couldÂ survive an intensive dance routine, and bring to life an original pirate character that has become one with theÂ sea, among the many tasks they’ve been faced with in their bid to join Conor McCullaugh and Rayce Bird as Face Off champions.
Currently remaining in the hunt for the guest lecturerÂ slot at the Make Up for Ever Academies in New York and Paris, the 2012 Toyota Prius v, and the $100,000 are Roy, Laura, Derek, Nicole, Alana, andÂ Sarah. On the next episode of Face Off, the finalÂ six will be tackling a Dr.Â Seuss-themed challenge under the watchful eye ofÂ special guest judge Brian Grazer. Will any of the contestants badlyÂ stumble now that the competition is nearing its end?
Face Off airs Tuesdays at 9:00 onÂ Syfy. Following Face Off at 10:00 is HotÂ Set, a fellow competitionÂ series that finds two teams ofÂ set designers competing to create the best original movieÂ set.
Who do you think will win thisÂ season of Face Off? Did you agree with the decision to bring back a previously eliminated contestant last week? What changes, if any, would you like toÂ see inÂ season four?
