It’s time for another Face Off recap! We’re already on episode five of the current season, and this round has been incredible. Our contestants walk in to the lab, and there are four stations made to look like lanes. McKenzie says that our artists will be in teams of three, and teach team member will get two 20 minute turns with their model. Each turn will allow a prosthetic to be applied. No communication is allowed among the team members. They must turn their models into characters inspired by the claws that each model is wearing.
Jill Wagner is our guest judge, and will determine the winner of the foundation challenge. Here’s our team lineup:
The models are hidden behind their lane markers, so the teams can’t see what the model’s progressive look is until it’s their turn. McKenzie gives the go sign and our teams rush to start their creations. It’s like a messed up game of telephone. Time runs out, and Jill walks through giving her opinions on each piece.
Adam is declared the winner of the foundation challenge, and wins immunity this week.
As McKenzie is dismissing the artists, Rayce walks in, and lets his team know he won’t be there this week, but RJ will be taking his place.
Our next stop is Fox studios, at the Newman Scoring Stage. McKenzie reveals that our artists will be creating a character based on a sound effect. Our artists will be working in teams of two. Our guest judge is Erik Aadahl, and he is the one that created the effects for our teams. Each team’s sound has been downloaded to their tablets, and our teams begin their designs after hearing their sounds. From birds and mechanical sounds, to roars and screams, there’s something for everyone.
Our teams head to the lab to begin sculpting. Adam and Regina are having nothing but problems getting their ideas streamlined.
Day two, and everyone is sculpting. Every single team is already stressing about time. The champions lend their hand, and then leave the teams to get everything into the mold room. The clock runs out, and it’s day three.
The models arrive, and everyone has four hours to finish their characters before last looks. Everyone is going as fast as they can to get as much done as possible before heading to last looks. The clock ticks down and every team is working until the last second.
At last looks, Regina admits that her piece isn’t up to snuff—and with Adam having won immunity, there’s not much she can do.
Here’s how the pieces turned out:
Julian & Ben
The judges take a look at each piece, and announce Jamie & Emily, and Logan & Rob safe. Stephanie & Kelly are up first to the spotlight. Their clockmaker piece, and their creation is deemed “incredible.” Adam & Regina come up next, and just from the look, you know it’s not going to be good. Neville calls her sculpted face an “abomination.” Julian & Ben’s demon creature gets some surprisingly positive comments. Darla & Anthony come forward, and their piece is called direction-less and silly.
The returning champions get to plead their team’s case to the judges, then the judges go deliberate.
The top team is Stephanie & Kelly with their clock-doll themed character, and the winner is Stephanie. Eliminated tonight is Regina.
*Author Note: Adam won immunity for choosing a WIG—not for his make-up skills. He has been on the bottom for two weeks thus far—out of only five episodes—and Regina has consistently put out good work. I think Regina got shafted.
