"Face Off" review by Suzanne 1/6/15
Premieres January 13 on Syfy /8c

I don't watch any reality shows, but this is one of the best ones on TV, which is why it's been on the air since 2011. It's very successful and well done. Scifi fans and others love the show because it's all about doing special effects makeup for their shows It's a very good competition show, and the winners of past seasons all seem to be working in the industry they love.

This season starts off with not only the regular constestants, but 3 previous winners come on to give advice and help, and they also compete against each other. There are also many great judges, some of whom I've even heard of, like Rick Baker.

McKenzie Westmoreland is still hostess of the show. She's well-known for this show and for acting in TV, but her father is also a famous special effects make-up person for Star Trek and other shows and movies.

They sent me the first two episodes to watch. The make-up they do looks great. All of the contestants are very talented.  Enjoy it!

SYFY’S HIT SERIES FACE OFF COMES BACK WITH A SUPER-SIZED TWO EPISODE PREMIERE FEATURING THE “RETURN OF THE CHAMPIONS”

SEASON 8 PREMIERES TUESDAY, JANUARY 13 AT 9 PM ET/PT ON SYFY

Premiere Features Makeup Legend and Academy Award-Winner Rick Baker (American Werewolf in London, Planet of the Apes, Men in Black) and the Return of Judge Ve Neill (The Hunger Games)

NEW YORK – November 20, 2014 – Syfy’s critically-acclaimed reality competition series Face Off – the network’s most watched unscripted series – will return on Tuesday, January 13 at 9PM for an action-packed eighth season themed “Return of the Champions.” In a twist on the show’s traditional format, three former champions, Rayce Bird (Season 2), Anthony Kosar (Season 4) and Laura Tyler (Season 5), will return in the premiere and select teams of five new artists who they will coach throughout the season.  

Additionally, the Season 8 premiere will be super-sized over two episodes.  At the end of premiere, host McKenzie Westmore delivers a challenge twist in lieu of an elimination, forcing the action of the premiere to carry over into the next week’s episode.  Makeup super-legend and seven-time Academy Award-winner Rick Baker (makeup artist for American Werewolf in London, The Men in Black trilogy, Michael Jackson’s Thriller, Planet of the Apes) will appear in both episodes, first mentoring the artists and then appearing as a guest judge. 

In a first for the series, Season 8 will feature an instant “watch and win” sweepstakes.  During each episode, fans will be prompted to discuss who their favorite contestant is by using Twitter - making them automatically eligible to win a weekly prize.   At the end of each episode, one lucky fan will be announced in an on air spot, on Twitter and featured on the Face Off show site on Syfy.com. 

Season 8 will also feature the full-time return of fan-favorite and Academy Award-winning judge, Ve Neill, who recently wrapped work on The Hunger Games franchise. 

Face Off is a competition/elimination series exploring the world of special-effects make-up artists and the unlimited imagination that allows them to create amazing works of living art. As a member of the multi-generational family dynasty whose name is synonymous with the make-up effects field, actress McKenzie Westmore brings expertise to her role as host of the series.  Some of SFX world’s most celebrated figures judge the competition – multiple Academy Award-winner Ve Neill (The Hunger Games, Pirates of the Caribbean), industry veteran Glenn Hetrick (CSI: New York, Heroes, Legion), and creature designer Neville Page (Avatar, Prometheus). World-renowned Hollywood makeup artist Michael Westmore (Star Trek) serves as the contestant mentor.

The Face Off contestants will be whittled down week by week, until only three remain for a finale showdown.  The winning artist will receive $100,000, a 2015 Fiat and a VIP package courtesy of Kryolan Professional Make-Up to one of their 85 international locations.  Kryolan Professional Make-Up continues as the official make-up sponsor of Face Off.
