“Face Off” Returns to SyFy Tonight

One of the more pleasant surprises of last year was SyFy’s reality competition Face Off, which pitted a scrappy assortment of makeup and effects professionals against one another in a series of inventive (and often nudity-heavy) challenges. While the winner was pretty much set from “go”, it was still fun to watch the judges put the Makeupsketeers (TRADEMARK PENDING) through their paces, especially adorable Team Gay members Gage (who nearly took the prize) and Marcel.

I’ve poked around in the bios and casting videos of the new designers and while there may be a Surprise!Gay in the bunch (I’m looking at you, ladies) there’s no official gay contestant as of yet that I know of. (If you know otherwise, drop me a line, and include hi-rez photos!) Here’s a sneak peek at the first challenge, which has a Wizard of Oz theme:

I’m glad to see that the show is back and that SyFy seems to be putting some dollars behind the show’s promotion, which may mean bigger challenges this round. Is anyone else excited for the show’s return? (For last season’s Face Off coverage, head on over here.)
