‘Face Off’ Season 5 Teaser Hints at a Season of Twists

As previously reported, Syfy’s hit special effects make-up artist competition Face Off will be returning with a twist this season: eight new competitors will be going up against eight former contestants who have a second shot at walking away with $100,000. The new teaser plays up that very twist, while also previewing a selection of the creepy creations the artists have in store for us. Check out the teaser below for a longer look!

All sixteen competitors have plenty of intriguing challenges ahead of them, including being tasked with creating a whimsical Mother Goose character and designing an original living art creation. The finale will find the final three contestants creating two lead characters for Swan Lake. Their work will then be put to the test during a performance by the Los Angeles Ballet.

Face Off season five premieres Tuesday, August 13th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Syfy.
