Syfy has revealed that acclaimed competition series Face Off has produced a spinoff series titled Game Face. Similar to previous Face Off-esque reality series Cosplay Melee and Hot Set, Game Face is self-contained and features in-show eliminations, with the four all-star makeup artists undergoing three elimination rounds. The episodic winners will receive a $10,000 grand prize.
Face Off host McKenzie Westmore will reprise her role on Game Face and be joined by Academy Award winning makeup artists Ve Neill (Beetlejuice) and Rick Baker (The Wolfman). A lineup of contestants and guest judges has yet to be announced.
The series premiere of Game Face is set for Tuesday, August 22nd at 10:00 on Syfy, where it will be led into by its parent series. You can check out the first (brief) teaser below.
Will you be watching? How do you think the show will compare to Face Off? Are you surprised that Syfy waited until now, when they’re heavily investing in scripted content, to spinoff their biggest reality hit in years?
