Face Off gives the true definition of what it means to contour your face as it opens up a world you never knew existed. “Beam me up, Scotty!”
Even if you are not a believer of The Outer Limits, experiencing this show will have you doing a Nanu-Nanu. What the Twilight Zone can make you a believer of, SYFY’s Face Off: All-Stars will have you witnessing an outer body experience!
Season 11 premieres Tuesday, January 24th at 9/8c with Episode 1101: “Abstract Aliens, and in this season, eight teams return featuring 16 all-star contestants creating unique alien creatures while incorporating green screen technology for the first time in Face Off history: Adam Milicevic (Season 8), Ben Ploughman (Season 9), Cat Paschen (Season 6), Cig Neutron (Season 7), Emily Serpico (Season 8), Evan Hedges (Season 9), Gage Hubbard (Season 1), George Troester (Season 7), Jasmine Ringo (Season 9), Keaghlan Ashley (Season 7), Logan Long (Season 8), Melissa Ebbe (Season 10), Niko Gonzalez (Season 6), Rachael Wagner (Season 7), Stella Sensel (Season 7), Tyler Green (Season 6).
The 16 veterans return to the competition to take another shot at the grand prize and top honor of being Hollywood’s next great special effects make-up artist — but it won’t be easy. For instance, on the February 7th episode, Mattel partnered with Syfy’s Face Off for a scary, cool new Monster High–themed episode, so make sure you tune-in for the makeup competition of the century!
The all-stars will have to battle it out in never before seen elaborate challenges including utilizing green screen in their concepts and double transformations where they must create the good and evil sides of one character.
