It’s Face Off Day here on TheNerdyBomb! If you need a refresher, we’ve got all the Face Off episodes recapped from the past few seasons.
We’re down to the last few artists, and we open with our remaining contestants at Brookside Park in Pasadena. McKenzie is surrounded by kids, and reveals that our challenge will focus around kids’ imaginations—specifically, their imaginary friends. All our contestants will be creating their buddy’s imaginary friends, and the kids will join the judges to decide who comes out on top.
The kids and their artists go hang out in the playground, and the artists start creating their imaginary friends. From the get-go, the artists butt heads with the kids over what they can and can’t create. Then the artists head back to the lab to start on their creations, and the coaches arrive to lend a hand.
Julian’s kid had imagined a zombie-type of creature, and Laura immediately sees problems. She’s concerned that since it’s a kids challenge, having a gory zombie won’t go over well. They work to make the zombie a little less threatening. Ben’s creature is going to end up walking on his knees, and moving three different heads. Ben reminds me a lot of Roy from the past seasons—we’ll see how his huge fabrication turns out. Michael Westmore walks through and gives each artists tips on creating a whimsical, kid-friendly creation.
It’s day two, and Emily, from the start, is in tears. She’s incredibly homesick. Ben and the previous champion, Anthony, are working to get all three heads molded. Emily takes a quick break outside to collect her thoughts, and is able to come back in refreshed and ready to go.
Day three, and everyone is scrambling to get their molds out and their creatures put together. The models arrive, and all the artists are enlisting the help of the models to get their creatures ready for the spotlight.
Ben is running way behind. His piece is so huge that Ben’s model isn’t even in the costume at last looks.
Everyone is scrambling, and time runs out. Let’s take a look at how the imaginary creatures turned out:

McKenzie announces that Logan and Emily are safe this week. Darla is called up first. Glenn is impressed with her fabrication, and thinks she pulled of the character perfectly. Ben is up next, and the judges are not impressed with his piece—it’s just too cartoon-y. It’s Adam’s turn, and the judges are pretty excited about his character—they enjoy his colors and his larger-than-life monster. Julian is last, and his zombie, which the judges called muddy and unimpressive, doesn’t communicate well.
The judges declare Adam the winner of this week’s challenge, and Ben is eliminated. (WHOA – I wasn’t expecting that!)
