Tonight we kick off a brand new season of Face Off on SyFy and what better way to do it then to jump right into a Spotlight Challenge? That’s right, there will be no Foundation Challenge tonight on the Face Off season 9 premiere, so there will be no immunity tonight on Face Off 2015. Which one of the Face Off season 9 artists will go home? Keep refreshing this page to follow along with my Face Off 2015 live recap!Not only will there be no Foundation Challenge on Face Off season 9, but the artists will be forced to work outside of their comfort zone. They will be working in pairs and they will each have a model, but they won’t be doing two separate makeups, they will only be doing one creature creation! Keep refreshing to find out what happens tonight on the Face Off season 9 premiere!
WARNING: Face Off 2015 SPOILERS AHEAD!
Don’t want to know what happened on Face Off season 9 tonight? Then don’t read ahead!
We start with the artists of Face Off season 9 meeting each other and then meeting McKenzie Westmore to find out their first challenge! To give them the details, Neville Page join them and he tells them that they will have to think outside of the box in order to be able to complete this challenge. McKenzie tells them that they will be working with the person they walked in with and they will be incorporating two models into their final creations! They will now pick an item that Neville has chosen for their inspiration!
After they pick out their inspiration for their makeups, the artists will make their way to their work stations to start sculpting! While they are sculpting, McKenzie walks in with her father, Michael Westmore to give them some tips on their makeups and how to make them work. The artists get through day one without any hiccups, but day two gets a little tense for the artists. Stevie and Libby have had to come up with a whole new concept for their design and Kevon and Omar are getting a little nervous about their molds because of how big they are and he isn’t sure they can pull it off!
Kevon and Omar have started their molds, Jason and Brittany are getting started on the wings for their alien animal, I hope they hold up ok. With only 15 minutes left of day two, Libby and Stevie have an issue, they cracked open their molds and there is a hole in the mold. They are working on repairing that when all of the models are walking in! Evan and Sidney have started application, Sidney is applying the cowl while Evan paints the tentacles for their makeup. With just 10 minutes left of the final day, the artists are racing against the clock before Last Looks!
At this point, many of the pairs have had setbacks, but they each have some time in Last Looks to make things come together, what do you think so far? Who do you think will be in danger tonight? Each pair has one how in Last Looks to finish up before presenting to the judges on the Face Off reveal stage! After Last looks, time to bring them out on stage. Jasmine and Ricky are up first with their alligator alien creature and I have to say, it looks amazing from far away, but when the judges get a closer look, it might not be that great.
Jordan and Ben have an interesting makeup on stage and I think that it actually looks pretty amazing considering they were scrabbling at the end. Omar and Kevon’s makeup doesn’t look all that great to me, just something about it. Nora and Scott‘s make up look pretty awesome and probably one of my top looks this week. The other looks all had their pros and cons, I think that this was a very difficult challenge and they all did a great job considering the complexity of this challenge.
The top two teams this week were Sidney and Evan and Ben and Jordan. The bottom two teams this week were Kevon and Omar and Libby and Stevie. The judges deliberate and they have nothing but good things to say about Sidney and Evan and Ben and Jordan’s looks, but they felt that the clam by Kevon and Omar was too cartoony and the makeup by Libby and Stevie’s concept really fell apart.
The team came out on top in tonight’s challenge is Jordan and Ben, but there can only be one winner and that is Ben! Jordan, Ben, Sidney and Evan are safe tonight, but that means that Libby, Stevie, Kevon or Omar will be going home! Who will it be? We are about to find out! Glenn tells us that the artist going home tonight is…..NO ONE!
