It’s time for another Face Off recap! We’re getting down to the nitty-gritty—if you missed last week’s Face Off recap, check it out. We open this week’s episode with our four contestants walking through DC stages. Every 10 feet, there’s a different backdrop. At the end, there’s a courthouse setup, with McKenzie standing by near a newsstand with Godzilla-inspired headlines on the racks. The spotlight challenge is for our contestants to create a creature based on the headlines. Here are their choices:
Yeti Crab Crushes Kremlin – Chosen by Cig
Giant Sloth Slashes Shanghai – Chosen by George
Mantis Preys on Paris – Chosen by Dina
Deadly Squid Destroys Dubai – Chosen by Drew
Taj Terrorized by Pterodactyl – No one.
Our contestants choose their monsters, and Clifton Collins Jr., star of Pacific Rim, Star Trek, Capote, and many more is introduced. He will be a guest judge this week.
Our contestants head off to start sketching, and are soon in the lab starting their sculpts. Michael does a walk through, and is concerned by Cig’s piece, as it’s just looking like a gorilla in a crab costume. He’s disappointed, but starts re-sculpting his piece to reflect a crab.
It’s day two, and George’s squid beak isn’t fully developed, leaving him with the choice of a ill-shaped beak or having to start over. He chooses to re-run his chest piece in polyfoam.
Cig finally gets his idea chiseled out, and heads to mold his piece. Dina is fabricating arms for her mantis, Cig is throwing foam on his crab, and Drew is applying hair.
George is not happy with his piece, and it’s just getting worse. He decides to start throwing paint on his body suit, and time ticks down. Drew decides to save some time by making half of his sloth burned.
Day three arrives, and Drew starts out by discovering his face mold is full of microbubbles. Thankfully, it’s on the burned side.
The models arrive, and it’s time to start applying the pieces. Drew makes a last minute decision to make both arms burned—which may prove disastrous on the spotlight stage.
Last looks comes and go, and we’re on to the Spotlight Challenge. Here’s what the artists created:
The judges do their walkthroughs and critique the pieces. While, typically, it’s pretty clear whose pieces they like and whose pieces are sub-par, the judges are seemingly pleased with all of the creatures this week.
The contestants walk back in to a very different spotlight stage. McKenzie reveals that the new spotlight stage has been redone to reflect the theme for the finale, which the contestants must earn their spots in. Glenn announces that the winner of the challenge, and first finale contestant, is Dina. Cig is chosen next, and Drew is chosen last, leaving George eliminated.
