An interview with the executive producer of Face Off, Mission Control Media’s Dwight D. Smith.
Face Off: Battle Royale, an all-star season, will be the final season of the makeup and effects competition series, as Syfy has killed the show.
Syfy will bring its makeup effects competition back this year, but GSN won’t air any more of the RuPaul-judged body painting competition.
Star Trek: Discovery’s makeup and creature effects, including the new Klingon design, was done by Face Off judges Glenn Hetrick and Neville Page.
Face Off: Game Face improves on the regular Face Off in many ways, giving returning all-star contestants a chance to show their skills in new challenges.
Each episode of the Face Off spin-off Game Face will have four all-star contestants competing against each other in timed challenges to win $10,000.
The shop versus shop format on Face Off led to a confrontation between a foreperson and a team member that spilled over into judging.
Face Off: All Stars has produced some delightful surprises this season besides its episode-one twist, which revealed teams wouldn’t be eliminated each week.
For its 11th season, Face Off will look different: not just because it’s the show’s first-ever all-star season, but because the contestants will compete in pairs all season long, affecting the way each episode is structured.

One of my favorite challenges in the history of Face Off is the season-one challenge, where the contestants made themselves up to look like other people and then interacted with their own family members, to see if they’d be recognized. The results really showcased their talent.
Syfy’s Face Off has long been a strong competition series that for me was stuck in a rut—a decent rut, yes, but a rut nevertheless. So, I’ve been wishing for a while that the show would shake things up. While there was not some kind of massive shift this season, producers made very smart changes… continue reading
Face Off has been introducing new challenges this season, its ninth, and they’ve improved the Syfy reality competition significantly.
Professional talent competitions like this live and die by their challenges, and the challenges have had more of a spark all season: engaged couples transformed into zombies who were then married by host McKenzie Westmore; two models merged into one creature; Rorschach ink blobs as inspiration for characters.
There’s a lot of variety that has nudged the show out of the rut it’s been in recently; the episodes don’t feel as interchangeable with other seasons, and the variation has resulted in some contestants excelling one week and failing the next.
