Get ready for the Face Off event to end all Face Off events. On Tuesday, September 2 at 9/8c, Syfy debuts Face Off: Judge Match, an all-new original special where Face Off judges Ve Neill, Glenn Hetrick and Neville Page go head-to-head in a special make-up competition for their charity. Yep, the three judges are about to be judged themselves - and only one will win.
There's a twist, though. For the competition, the judges will pair up with two team members -- a former Face Off all-star contestant, as well as a former champion -- to create a pair of living chess pieces designed to appear in a colorful, stylized fantasy film. In keeping with Face Off’s current season theme of “Life and Death,” one of the characters must be pure and pristine while the other is evil and twisted.
Joining the judges to assist in the competition are all-stars and fan favorites Roy Wooley (seasons 3 and 5), Miranda Jory (seasons 2 and 5), Wayne Anderson (season 4) and previous Face Off champions Conor McCullagh (season 1), Anthony Kosar (season 4) and Laura Tyler (all-star from season 2 and season 5 champion). At stake is a cash prize for the winning judge’s favorite charity and $5,000 for each of their team members.
It all culminates with astounding creations, making for a tough decision. Multiple Academy-Award winner and world-renowned Hollywood makeup artist Michael Westmore (Mask, Star Trek), along with Academy-Award winning makeup artist and Season 7 judge Lois Burwell (Lincoln, Braveheart, Saving Private Ryan, War Horse, War of the Worlds) have the difficult task of choosing a champion. McKenzie Westmore will host.
Ve Neill is competing for A Window Between Worlds, a non-profit organization dedicated to using art as a healing tool for survivors of domestic violence. Glenn Hetrick is competing for The North Shore Animal League, the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization. Neville Page is competing for The Orangutan Foundation International, dedicated to the conservation of wild orangutans and their rainforest habitat.
Check out a sneak peek of the next episode of Face Off, Tuesdays at 9/8c.
The artists must create their own angry and twisted trees, each afflicted with a particular malady.
