So glad it’s Wednesday. With as much snow as we’ve gotten, I’m battling cabin fever. And what’s fantastic for cabin fever? Catching up on Face Off!
Our episode beings at the Los Angeles River, where scenes from movies including Terminator 2, Grease, Chinatown, and Escape from L.A. were filmed.
McKenzie reveals that our contestants will be creating trolls that live under pre-selected bridges. The bridge choices are:
The Golden Gate Bridge
Corbin Castle Bridge
Our contestants choose their bridges, and McKenzie reveals that Doug Jones will be joining our teams during the Application Phase.
Everyone starts sketching out the ideas, and all the contestants are excited about having a true fantasy challenge.
Our contestants head back to the lab, and they have 5.5 hours to work on their creatures. Mr. Westmore walks through, and helps each person with their sculptures. Every contestant has a very individual and creative idea this week, so I’m excited to see what they come up with.
Day two arrives, and Emily is having problems with her mold. It’s locked. She struggles with it for quite a while until Ben lends a hand and helps her get it out. Unfortunately, her mold is battered and cracked from the prying to get it loose, so her piece is going to need lots of fixing.
Day three, and Emily’s mold isn’t looking so good. The models arrive, and all the contestants are applying their pieces as quick as they can. Doug Jones arrives, and he’s helping the models become the best trolls they can be. It’s pretty cool to watch him embody these different trolls.
Everyone heads to the application phase, and then the spotlight stage, where Doug Jones is joining the judge’s panel.
Let’s see our trolls!
The judges score the trolls, and decide that Adam, Darla, Stephanie, Logan, and Julian are safe. Kelly is the first called forward. The judges are pleased with her work this week. Anthony is next, and the judges don’t feel like his troll fits his bridge. Ben is called up, and the judges really enjoy his whimsical piece. It definitely stands out. Emily comes forward, and the judges don’t think her character is “troll”enough, and they really harp on her hard transitions. Rob’s piece, while beautiful, isn’t really sitting well with the judges, and they call his piece a miss. Jamie’s troll gets high marks, with Doug saying he’d love to wear the piece on film. The champions get their chance to plead with the judges, and Rayce says that the failures are mostly his fault, since he pushed his team members to do outside the “big-nose, big-chin” norm that’s typical of a troll.
The judges declare Jamie the winner this week, and Anthony is eliminated.
