Channel Guide Magazine received an exclusive Face Off season 10 episode 5 preview video. This week’s challenge has the artists concocting creatures inspired by real human parasites.

This week’s special guest is someone who knows a little bit about parasites, actor from Aliens, Lance Henricksen. In this clip, Robert sings us a little song about his parasite. His parasite named Hank. Yes, Hank. Let’s watch!
Face Off Season 10 episode 4 starts with using the new little deck off the workroom. Is this a replacement for the mansion? Did they not get to live in the mansion this season? Did the neighbors complain? I have many questions. On to the challenge – McKenzie has taken over the workroom for the artists’ first individual focus challenge (Two days instead of three, mwahaha). The artists must create a realistic disguise for their model, making them virtually unrecognizable. We learn that apparently Michael Westmore has created disguises for celebrities (like Michael Jackson) and for the police. He created … Continue reading

Moving right along to the Face Off Season 10 episode 3 recap. In this episode we’re dealing with lost languages and what the speakers of those languages might have looked like. We’re introduced to David Peterson, a professional language creator. How cool is that job title? David has created languages for the Face Off artists. Again, they will be working in pairs (which they get to choose themselves this time). Each team has to go into a ‘shrine’ to pick an artifact which represents an ancient tribe. That artifact corresponds with a language sketch. This week’s pairs: Njoroge & Ant … Continue reading
Welcome to the Face Off Season 10 episode 2 recap! Last week Greg got the boot, and Melissa got the win. This week, we’re still working in teams, which makes my life as a recapper easier. Thanks Face Off! Quote of the week: at The Culver Studios, someone says “This does feel like a studio.” Um, cause it is? Ve joins McKenzie to let the artists know what this week’s spotlight challenge is. If you read our questions with the judges, this is the challenge Ve and McKenzie liked best. They need to create a larger-than-life whimsical larger-than-life character inspired … Continue reading

There’s another mini-Master Sommelier exam happening in Uncorked episode 3. Jane & Jon talking about the test, which is now 6 weeks out. Dana for some reason heads out to the Pebble Beach Food & Wine event with Master Sommelier Alex. Yannick is doing a tasting test with a master sommelier, Pascaline LePeltier.

We’re now 2 months out from the Master Sommelier exam in Uncorked episode 2. Some hopefuls are preparing for the Top Somm competition, while others are working on a wine fundraiser. Dana and Morgan set up a practice service experience with Alex, a Master Sommelier. He challenges Dana by questioning just about every single wine suggestion he offers. No California wines! I was just in Australia! I had bad jamon once – no Spanish wines. He’s relishing being THAT GUY at a restaurant. Dana is then called out for not pouring the wine for the ladies first at the table. … Continue reading
