Face Off s5e12 • Flights Of Fantasy • 29 October 2013
Laura picks the Umbrella Cockatoo, Tate selects the Egyptian Vulture, Roy goes with the Blue-Throated Macaw and Miranda chooses the Silvery-Cheeked Hornbill. What, no love for the Chilean Flamingo?
They sketch and Dave Salmoni points out various traits of the birds.
All I can think of is PR9e11 — and I want Collier back!
Tate interviews that he is stressed. Each of the competitors explains his plan, and everything seems reasonable. Well, except that Miranda doesn't want to get 'overly complicated.' Um, go big or go home? I get that she wants to finish, as opposed to last time, but, geez, you're going up against Roy, Mr. "I can build an army in an hour!" Of course Laura and Tate are making it to the finale, and will place top 2, don't ya think? The only question is whether they will be joined by Roy or Miranda. Roy will go big. The only way to beat him is to go as big as he will, and do a better paint job than he does, yes?
Laura interviews that she has too much work to do. She says she can't get it done — while she is getting it done! Miranda is taking her time with her face sculpt while the other three are already in the molding room.
Roy is working on his arm/back shoulder mold and it falls on him. Tate and Laura help him out, and he decides to use it, fixing the broken areas.
Something interesting: Each of the contestants are able to do some painting before their last hour of work at the reveal stage. Good on y'all.
How do they do?
How do you think they will place in the finale episode? I'm torn. Roy placed 4th in his original season, while Tate and Laura were runners up in their season's finales. I expect Laura to be level headed and composed, while the guys are wild cards.
