About the show
Face Off is a US reality/competition television series airing on SyFy since 2011. The current 10th season premiered on January 13, 2016. The series is presented by actress McKenzie Westmore, produced by Mission Control Media and executive produced by Michael Agbabian, Dwight D. Smith and Derek Atherton.
The series is a contest among professional prosthetic makeup artists who compete in creating prostheses similar to those that can be seen in sci-fi and horror films. The judges on the show are, accordingly, award-winning television and film make-up artists Ve Neill, Glenn Hetrick and Neville Page. The all-around winner receives a US$100,000 cash prize, a car, and US$25,000 worth of professional Alcone make-up.
Viewer reception and chances of renewal
The show is a popular one and holds an 8.2/10 rating on IMDb. Viewers note the highly professional aspect of the series, wherein the contestants` personalities aren`t a part of the competition, so there`s no need for the typical reality-show overdramatic behavior. Another positive aspect of the show is that the judges, rather than the audience members, pick a winner in a fair manner based on their skills in the special effects make up department. Face Off is the 2015 Critic’s Choice Award winner and 2016 nominee for “Best Reality Show – Competition. The show`s current season will see 14 artists compete for the title of a winner, and is set to consist of 14 episodes. Face Off steadily attracts over 1 million viewers per episode, and is almost a sure candidate for renewal.
