Face Off is one of the few reality shows I like. The series, which debuted last year, is a competition show aiming to find the next big makeup FX artist. Hosted by McKenzie Westmore (of the Westmore makeup family), and judged by FX artists Ve Neill, Glenn Hetrick, and Patrick Tatopoulos, the quartet return to the second season, which begins January 11, 2012 at 10pm on Syfy. More after the jump.
Last year's show contained some great competitions: insect-human hybrids; original horror villains; reimagined fairy tale characters. This season promises some equally fascinating challenges: reimagined Wizard of Oz characters; human-dinosaur hybrids; bringing phobias to life, to name a few. Fourteen contestants will participate this season, including one chosen by fans, who will be revealed on the season premiere. The winner will receive $100,000, a year's worth of Alcone makeup, and a 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid.
