Face Off season 10 episode 12 sends the final 4 to Skull Island. It’s a cross-promotion for some new theme park at Universal Orlando. Whatever. What follows is an extended commercial for this new theme park – opening Summer 2016! So the actual challenge is to take a creature from Skull Island: Reign of Kong and imagine how that creature would evolve into an intelligent species. Mel is second-guessing herself. Again. She comments on how this is the worst time to be second-guessing herself. But Mel, you’ve been doing it THE ENTIRE SEASON! Why stop now? Walter is freaking … Continue reading
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 8 Episode 4 begins with a dissertation on Derrick Barry. Who is Derrick Barry? What motivates Derrick Barry? Does Derrick Barry have a soul? Is that different from having soul? Does Derrick Barry know what soul is? (Answer key: Don’t know; Unknown; Probably not; Confused; Nope.) This week’s guest judges are Lucian Piane, Chris Stein & Debbie Harry from Blondie! Purse first! Bob’s decided that the purse he made in episode 1 shall now be featured in every episode going forward. So it’s purse first into the workroom! We apparently haven’t had interesting conversations waiting for … Continue reading
Face Off Season 10 episode 11 takes us to a very specific war – The World of Warcraft. Melissa and Walter are seriously excited since they’re avid gamers. They’ve got to take one of the video game’s characters & create a real-life version. We’ve got goblins (Yvonne), the Draenel (Walter), the Pandaren, the Tauren (Rob), trolls (Mel) and the Worgen (Melissa can’t get there fast enough). Melissa can hardly contain herself. Mel, Rob and Yvonne don’t know much about World of Warcraft, so they’re especially freaked out. We’ll see if having knowledge of the game actually helps or hurts the … Continue reading
Channel Guide Magazine has received another exclusive preview clip of this week’s episode of Face Off. This week’s episode is The Art of Warcraft: The game World of Warcraft is making its way to the big screen this summer. In this clip, we get the setup of the challenge – the artists are being asked to create a character based on a World of Warcraft character. Melissa and Walter are super-stoked for this challenge. They both play the game & are geeking out. Mel and Rob on the other hand don’t play, so they’re a bit apprehensive. And Yvonne is … Continue reading
When we last watched Drag Race, we were left with a double elimination and a mysterious phone call to someone from RuPaul. So of course RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 8 episode 3 begins with much speculation. Victoria PorkChop Parker? Shangela? WHO DID RU CALL!?!? Sensitive, shady mentor Ru enters the workroom, still rocking the hats. Oh, and did you know his suit was from Klein Epstein Parker and they’re made to order? Wow! I had no idea. It sounds so casual & in the midst of conversation rather than actually advertising a product. Wink. But before we answer the question … Continue reading
Face Off Season 10 episode 10 has the artists selecting an eyeball to create a cyclops character. To complete the look of these characters, the show has arranged for 6-7 foot tall models. Mel’s gonna need a ladder to work on her model. (Actually, most of them could’ve used a ladder. Mel just got the most crap about it.) This is a focus challenge, so it’s only a 2 day challenge. They’ve got to sculpt & mold their faces today. In this episode, we learn about eyeforms – a sphere with some screws in it that the artists use to … Continue reading

This week’s episode is Keep One Eye Open: The artists must create their own Cyclops monster, straight out of Greek mythology. Special Guest: Douglas Smith (Percy Jackson). In this clip, McKenzie introduces this week’s challenge. We’ve got a little mythology, a little action and a bunch of eyeballs. Yes, eyeballs. For inspiration.

Sorry I’m tardy to the party people. Let’s get started! RuPaul’s Drag Race season 8 episode 2 brings the reality – someone’s going home. Every time. Probably. Unless they do that “you’re both safe” crap again. Eye roll. Jamal Sims, Lucian Piane, Ester Dean are this week’s extra special guests. Did they make a bigger judges table for this? Mini-challenge: a Latin dance-off in quick drag. AB Soto is the guest judge for this mini-challenge, featuring a song he created with RuPaul. I’m sure it’s available on iTunes. Cynthia Lee Fontaine and Chi Chi DeVayne are the “winners” & get … Continue reading
Face Off Season 10 episode 9 starts with a Norse mythology Foundation challenge. A selection of models have been decked out with magnificent wings. They are the Valkyrie – the winged warrior Goddesses. This Foundation has a guest judge – makeup artist Douglas Noe. He gives the artists a good piece of advice – will their Valkyrie tell a story without saying a word. A piece of advice that would work for any Face Off challenge. The winner of this Foundation challenge wins immunity for this week’s Spotlight challenge. Of course Robert sings some Wagner. He’s creating a Valkyrie. I … Continue reading
