SyFy's Face Off makeup artist show

Modeled on Top Chef. Arrive at a reception, complete with loverly flower and foliage decorations. Surprise! Your first challenge and you have to use something from the room decorations. A short challenge and the next day an elimination challenge starts. They do have
three days for the elimination challenge - molds have to be made and set. Their challenge was to make a half animal half human. Animals to choose from - beetle, ostrich or elephant. They brought all the animals onto the set - the elephant was HUGE and scary. They also got to pick a concrete cast of their model to build items on. It was a team challenge and all the dramatics associated. Along the lines of Top Chef they also did the wakeup call in their loft quarters they share and the brushing of the teeth in bathroom. The person who won got a twist. He stayed back and gave his input as to who should go home. The judges seem to be really tops in their field and very instructive in their criticism. Looks to be a good show!

How many contestants?

12. We noticed in their 'quick fire' they didn't show each contestant's entry. We decided that they had 3 days of work to showcase for the elimination challenge so something had to give.

Interesting. Who pimps this show...I mean for Top Chef you've got either food products or appliance companies or foodie magazines trading name recognition for money and prizes, I'm curious what companies would find a connection to this?

A stunning lack of pimpage that we noticed. No cars to pull up in. They did mention a supply FX makeup which most of us would only have occasion to use at Halloween. I'll watch closer next time.

Sounds like a logical progression for face off shows. Stan and I might actually like this one.
