Face Off’s mysterious “rules violation”

Last night’s episode of Face Off ended with a statement in the credits that said there was a rules violation that was remedied by producers, but gave no specifics.

The mysterious statement appeared above the normal “Contestants are informed of the rules…,” which appears at the very end of the credits, and said:

“During the taping of this episode, it became apparent that a rules violation occurred. The producers took the action they deemed appropriate to address and remedy the situation.”

I’ve asked SyFy for details, and will update when I hear back. If you have information, please let me know.
