Break out the popcorn and Spirit Gum, cause it’s time for another season of Face Off! This season we’re going to welcome back three former champions, who will have a team of artists under their watch. If you’ve missed past seasons, feel free to catch up with some of our other Face Off recaps.

 

Here’s our contestant line up:

Stephanie

Anthony

Julian

Regina

Rob

Adam

Ben

Emily

Daniel

Darla

Alan

Jamie

Logan

Gregory

Kelly

Past champions:

Rayce (Season 2 champ)

Anthony (Season 4 champ)

Laura (Season 3 finalist and season 5 champ)

 

Each champion gets five contestants. If one of their contestants wins Face Off, the champ they were under also gets a winning notch on their Face Off belt. If all of the contestants are eliminated from one champion’s team, that champ is also eliminated.

The first challenge is for our contestants to create a companion character to a past character our champions created. Our champs pick their teams based on the contestants create. With two hours on the clock, the contestants scramble to create their companion characters.

Ve Neil is introduced as a returning series judge, and she does a walk-through with the champs. Here’s what our contestants create:

Darla is chosen as the winner, and secures immunity from the next elimination challenge.

Our contestants head to the house and get a good night’s sleep before heading to Vasquez rocks, where make-up artist Rick Baker is waiting with McKenzie. Surrounding our teams are three different alien crash sites. The challenge is to create two aliens that emerge from the crash site chosen by the team.

The teams inspect the wreckage and head to the lab. Michael Westmore walks through, giving each team tips to consider before sending their pieces to mold.

It’s day two, and as the contestants walk in, the warehouse is empty, except for McKenzie and a few primates. McKenzie reveals that our team’s alien ships didn’t land on earth, but on a planet ruled by apes, and each team must create an additional character – based on the primate—a character for their original creation to do battle against.

And with that, the episode comes to an end.

What do you think our teams will come up with for monkey-battling aliens? Do you like the new show structure? Let us know what you think about this Face Off recap below!
