‘Face Off’ Season 4 Premiere – Who Will Win?

2 years ago by  

Face Off has made a swift return for season 4. This year, Oscar winning make-up artist Michael Westmore is stepping in as a mentor to the contestants, while a new group of industry heavyweight step in as guest judges. But can you tell from the start who will win Face Off?

Once again, Face Off starts this year’s competition with quick effects steps using minimal equipment. For this challenge, the contestants were asked to create a Queen based on the different crowns each were given. Although these make-ups are typically the sloppiest ones of the entire season, it almost always reveals a few strong competitors that could go all the way.

This time, Eric F., Anthony and Jenna all stood out and took top spots with their make-up work. However, it was Anthony’s blue Seussian character that ultimately came out on top. That being said, a win early on in the series doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll make it to the end. In seasons 2 and 3, the person who won the first competition was voted out in episode 7 and 4, respectively, while in season 1 it was Conor McCullagh, the overall winner of the season, who won the first competition.

Next up, the contestants were paired up for their first elimination challenge and were asked to create their own take on a King who reflects the land they rule. Two of the top spots from the previous competition, Eric F. and Jenna, were teamed up together for a Desert King, while Anthony was teamed up with Meagan for a Mountain King. However, with Anthony having won immunity, it will be Meagan who takes a hit if he drops the ball (or face mold).

Yes, Anthony may have dropped the face, breaking the nose, but he fixed it, and their King ended up in one of the top spots in the competition, along with Eric F. and Jenna, and Autumn and Eric Z. In the end, Anthony once again took home another win, this time sharing it with Meagan, who has now been revealed as a strong competitor. Troy, who created a Volcanic King with Michael, was first to be voted off.

Although the first competitions of the series are generally up for grabs, can you, the viewer, already tell who will likely the be in the finale? With two wins under his belt, Anthony is currently sitting at the top of the pack. Even so, Eric F. and Jenna aren’t too far behind him, neither is Meagan.

Who do you think will end up winning Face Off season 4?

  1. Too early to tell but it seems like its gonna be a good season.

    • before you finish all your shows. think about putin all the winners together to see who is the best…

  2. I caught an episode from season 3′s marathon last night and was hooked immediately. I watched the final 4 episodes of season 3 and was so surprised that Laura didn’t win. Her villain was lackluster – I think her partner was responsible for its execution – but she did fantastic work throughout the season. I liked Nicole’s final designs, and she seemed like a great person, but I wasn’t nearly as impressed with the quality of her catalog.

    Loved the season 4 opener. The judges got it right. The guy with crazy hair and gruesome designs has to go, or learn to use some subtlety – he has a heavy hand, if that makes sense. Ha! Listen to me. I watch a couple episodes of Face Off and already I’m an expert.

    • Plus nicole lost and was kicked off but got to comeback in which wasnt done in any other season.

  3. Judges do need to lighten up. The, guess you could say, Croc-goblin look fine. I liked the design and was fine with the color.

    • I thought the croc-goblin needed a lot more green. I’m from FL too, and I can’t let that slide. Otherwise, it was a fantastic costume having what I thought was one of the stronger sculpts.

      • @Royal – What part of Florida? I’m in Jax.

  4. Anthony won both challenges of the get go… He has a great chance at winning.

  5. I just hope they don’t bring back a contestant who was eliminated like last season. That was BS. Roy got robbed.

    • Ii liked Roy’s work, but you have to admit he botched his design in the last round by pulling the hair through the ears. His sculpt was awesome. He shouldn’t have second-guessed himself at the end.

      • I liked that Nicole won. She was lucky to get a second chance and she did not take it for granted. Most people would. I am just hope the drama bull from the first two seasons do not return in this season. I like the creations. I watch to see what people tend to make. Keep the real world road rules type of dramma the first seasons had out of this show!

  6. I hate Anthony, just because i love Eric F. and hes taking his prize! ERIC F MUST WIN!

  7. You guys really messed up when. u got rid of Eric f he was better than Wayne I got so mad when u made that mistake.
