‘Face Off’ Season 3 Finale – Who Should Win?

1 year ago by  

Last night we saw the final competition of Face Off season 3, which pitted Laura, Nicole and Derek against each other in a battle for the $100,000 grand prize. Unlike in previous seasons, this year’s winner will be chosen by viewers and revealed tonight, live. But before the winner is officially revealed, we have to ask: Who do you think should win Face off this season?

Laura, Nicole and Derek have fought their way to the finale with impressive character creations, but their spot in the final competition didn’t come without some challenges of their own. Not only have they had to create original Star Wars and Dr. Seuss-themed characters, Derek also had to overcome his affinity for “big heads” while Nicole had to overcome being, well, kicked off. Laura, admittedly, has passed through relatively unscathed. But is that enough to bring home the win?

All six of the created characters (2 per person) had to follow the theme ‘Demon vs Good Witch.’ While the Demon could be anything, the Good Witch’s origin had to be elemental and include a natural source for their power.

To help you check out the competition, you can check out their final character creations below. And to help you pick a winner, we included some comments from the judges:

  1. Gonna have to go with nicole, I must have missed an ep, how did cowboy hat guy get voted off?

    • Last week, I really don’t know…in my opinion it was crazy that they picked Nicole last week over him. He did make some questionable choices but though his really fit the challenge well, Her’s wasn’t very good.

      • Kinda bul that she got to come back in so easily after being voted off and getting to skip a challenge. Maybe they really wanna female winner this year.

        • I am so glad that Nicole won. She proved herself a true winner by making a great comeback and giving it her all! Well done!!!

      • roy should and in my opinion did win

    • First of all His name is ROY Cody, you must got some nerve. Geez

  2. I didn’t get to see the finale, as Hurricane Sandy knocked out my power, but judging from the photos, Nicole should win. I also believe, however, that after she got booted off the show, it was decided by the judges/producers that they wanted her back on, and thus, they rigged it that way. To answer “Cody” above, the “cowboy hat guy”, whom I originally thought was going to win, was getting a little too boastful, plus, he failed to come up with good concepts the last couple of shows, so although I felt it was his contest to win or lose…he lost it.

  3. I picked Laura from the start of the show, but I think Derek deserves it. He consistently game up with great concepts throughout the season. His paint work sunk a couple of them down to the mid-tier safe level, but he really improved on that as the season went on. I thought his was the most striking witch and his Demon made a lot more sense once he described it but thought it was good even before that.

    Nicole’s was good too

  4. I like the Earth Witch and the Hell Demon… so it’s gotta be either Laura or Nicole.

  5. If you go on their whole body of work, Laura easily wins. But for this last challenge, I think Nicole did the best.

  6. They are all good but they all lacked good lower body work. I voted for Nicole for body of work.

  7. Nicole should not even be in the show she got voted off early, missed two challenges. Not very fair in my opinion.

    • I agree. This was the first year they did something like that, and being that she is the likely winner, I think the judges/producers fashioned it so she would return after being voted off. She has talent, and I did like her two creations in the finale the best, but nonetheless, not fair.

      • Why would they fashion it so Nicole got back on. Everytime something like this happens there is a conspiracy theory but honestly anyone could have gotten back on the show. And I like that option

    • I disagree, but I respect your opinion. I really like the fact that they have that option. She worked hard to improve herself after being sent home and it paid off.

      Anyone who gets a second chance and is able to win the darn thing is tops in my book. Well done!

      • Yeah I like your opinion. Everyones like it’s not fair that Nicole got put back on but she proved herself and deserved a spot.

  8. I’m a bit torn….I like Laura and Derek’s witches better than Nichole but I thought only Nichole made a good demon (screw the emo judge that didn’t like the “ram” horns….since when do rams have a monopoly on them?) and made the pair look like they were from the same realm.

    How about if they give Nichole 50k and the other two 25k apiece?

  9. I am happy Nicole won. She was offered another chance and she made the best out of it. So did not take her second chance for granted and rose to the top.

  10. So freaking unfair… I completely agree with waht Roy said when he got voted off. She was able to see her family, work on what she done wrong, and was basically able to skip out on two weeks of challenges… So unfair. It just wasn’t right…

  11. My take: I’m with the folks who say Nicole got an unfair advantage. Not sure how much time passes real time in between challenges, but she got to rest/recharge/rethink. (Nothing against what she turned in after she got back-it was great) I also really dislike when these competitions come down to strictly audience vote. Make them a 4th judge, but not the sole arbiter.

    I still can’t believe Roy didn’t make the finale. Oh well, it is what it is. But body of work wise: this one should have been Laura’s.

    Al that said-Can’t wait for Season 4. Face Off is some of the most fun on TV.

    • So totally agree with this comment Scott. Bringing Nicole back was unfair in my opinion, and I believe Roy had a right to be upset about the idea. The audience votes should never be the deciding factor when picking a winner. It reduces the competition to a popularity contest.

      • I believe Roy all the way it is unfair to send someone home to learn about what they did right and wrong to relax and have a complete rest of stresses and heartache of missing kids spouses and get a refreshed and energized and then get back in the game where others have had nothing but bombs about to blow their dreams apart of all contestants roy has been top guy to beat and from the judges mouth had gone beyond anybody else in his creations and level of creations i believe if he was in the finally he would have won! And sorry but i would be a little cocky if i could do what he has done Every Challenge oh and didnt Roy help everyone on the challenge thst he got booted from uhmmm wow i think they should take all challenges in to consideration oh wait thats right the winner had a month break and didnt do 2 challenges that the others made it through hate to say it but i wont be watching two faces anymore! Not cool not cool Roy was above any of them in talent he taught them alot 1 good thing

  12. I thought it was Rod would had the problem with the “Big Head”

  13. Derek’s witch seems reminiscent of Darth Maul. Although I wouldn’t like Nicole to win (with the advantage she got)I like her work a lot better than the other two this week

  14. Congratulations! Nicole good job awesome.

  15. I am sooooo mad that Laura didn’t win. She did not have a single bottom look throughout the season! Her paint jobs and ideas in general were so much better! I know she’ll be able to find a good job after this, but she really should have won. Face Off made a mistake in letting the audience vote. All of these competition shows are making that mistake. There’s judges there for a reason people. USE THEM!

    • Laura should have won and it really wasn’t even close. As long as you are talking body of work she was CLEARLY the most talented. The only time her work suffered was when they made her team up with someone (Uggh Tommy! At least that db didn’t get her voted out earlier!) So disappointed for Laura as Nicole got the sympathy vote because of her condition. Happy for Nicole but she did not deserve to win it all. Laura will be able to find a great job because anyone with any artistic sense and a pair of eyeballs can see her talent.

    • Thank you… Felt the same

    • Absolutley agree. Laura deserved to win by being the best all season.

  16. I really thought the competition would come down to Roy and Laura as they produced the most consistently quality work over the course of the season. While Nichole really had a fantastic witch/demon combo, I think Laura really proved that she was the most dependable and professional artist of the final three. Although I was impressed by Nichole’s growth over time, I think Laura deserved the final prize and the prestige that comes with it.

    • I believe Roy all the way it is unfair to send someone home to learn about what they did right and wrong to relax and have a complete rest of stresses and heartache of missing kids spouses and get a refreshed and energized and then get back in the game where others have had nothing but bombs about to blow their dreams apart of all contestants roy has been top guy to beat and from the judges mouth had gone beyond anybody else in his creations and level of creations i believe if he was in the finally he would have won!

  17. I think all three queens were great, but Nicole’s was the best. As for the demons, I kinda liked Derek’s up-close, but not from a distance. Nicole killed it there too. Laura’s was just a mess.

    Overall, solid season.

  18. I love your work Nicole. I hope you win faceoff you do yuor work so great!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. I love your work Nicole. I hope you win faceoff you do yuor work so great!

  20. I cannot believe Nicole won! she got voted off for a reason, she missed challenges, I hope they do not do not let the voted off contestants back on next year!

  21. Roy should have been in the finale. I think he would have won. As it is, out of the three, Laura should have won.

  22. I don’t think the viewers should ever be given another chance to vote for the winner.

  23. here here!

  26. Definitely not happy with the final results of season 3. Roy should have been in the top 3. Laura earned her spot from her body of work, not just a couple challenges at the end. Nicole has talent, but she had a definite advantage (rest and relaxation) and she was not consistent in her work over the entire show. I don’t like letting America vote for the winner. All the teenage girls of America will select the winner based on who they like and not who has talent.
