Face Off s5e13 • Swan Song (Finale) • 5 November 2013
Last time on Face Off the four remaining veteran contestants created bird-man hybrids. Tate and Laura were the top 2, with Tate winning. Roy and Miranda were the bottom 2, with Miranda being eliminated. She sure did great work throughout the season, but I have a sneaking suspicion that the finale will be calmer without her. Unless she returns to aid a fellow contestant? What if she and Alana both come back and help one still in the competition? Uh-oh!
We open with Roy on a balcony, looking for Romeo. Or, getting ready to jump. No, he's just getting an edit because he was in the bottom 2 last time. Oh, and don't you worry, he's not in a Winner/Loser Edit. Whew!
The challenge? They have to dance with a ballet company! No, they have to create a female swan and a male sorcerer (it's never the other way around, huh?)
McKenzie trudges out some recently eliminated makeup artists.
Laura chooses Miranda and Eddie. Roy picks Frank and Scott. Tate selects Alana and Lyma.
The models are actual L.A. ballet dancers, and the makeup artists get FOUR days, not the typical three. Roy is worried that he doesn't know enough about ballet to do good work. Never fear, he does. Tate sure seems to be talking about being the leader of his team a lot.
On day three I notice something strange: Roy's team is painting. That never happens till the last day, and sometimes not until the very last hour! Perhaps they will all finish for the finale?
How do they do?
The judges go wild with praise on all of them except for Glenn when he talks with Tate. All I can say is THANK YOU Glenn. I was thinking Tate's Sorcerer looked so feeble that he'd be unable to feed or bathe himself, let alone cast a spell on someone. The mouth not closing put him at the bottom for me.
