Tuesday the award-winning series Face Off
returns to Syfy with an all-star season eleven. Sixteen previous contestants return to battle it out for the grand prize, this time in teams. This season there will be never before seen challenges, including the use of green screen as well as double transformations with two sides to one character.
The returning contestants include Gage Hubbard from season one, Cat Paschen, Niko Gonzalez, and Tyler Green from season six, Cig Neutron, George Troester III, Keaghlan Ashley, Rachel Wagner, an Stella Sensel from season seven, Adam Milicevic, Emily Serpico, and Logan Long from season eight, Ben Ploughman, Evan Hedges, and Jasmine Ringo from season nine, and Melissa Ebbe from season ten.
McKenzie Westmore returns again as host, as well as judges Ve Neil, Glenn Hedrick, and Neville Page, and mentor Michael Westmore. As always, the season will also bring other leaders in the industry.
In the premiere, "Abstract Aliens," the contestants must create unique alien creatures with the use of green screen.
I really enjoyed the first episode of the season. Bringing back contestants for an all-star season was a smart idea and helps to keep the series fresh. Using green screen only added more challenges, and was interesting to watch. Everyone was on their game, and the results were excellent. Using the same teams also brings something new, and I liked that change in format.
I'm excited to see what other new creations the artists create next.
Be sure to tune into Syfy on Tuesday night for the season premiere.
