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 out about his wings – he made some spring mechanisms & they break during testing. So now his wings can open & close.
One highlight of this episode was the “we’re the final 4” conversation the artists have outside the workroom. The conversation is pretty typical, but I love how there’s a stack of bread on the table & the artists have bottles of water.
Bread & water. That’s what you get on Face Off. You’re going to eat it & like it. I hope none of these artists have celiac disease.
The winner of tonight’s challenge, and the person going to Disney – I mean, Universal Orlando and the new Skull Island: Reign of Kong – is Melissa. Yay Milwaukee! Nice that she’s excited to take her son.
Walter is the next person headed to the finale, which leaves us with Mel and Rob waiting in the wings. Rob’s name is called, even though he had the weaker makeup this week. He’s been so strong thus far, so he’s going through.
And it’s Mel’s swan song, even though she did a good makeup. She had been eliminated once before. So really, would we say that the save was really used on Rob, since had all things been equal, he would’ve been eliminated this week?
