The best part of this show is the lack of fake drama centered around contestants fighting in the house. The focus is on the skill, vision, and creativity of the artists in the studio. What these artist accomplish in 2 1/2 days is amazing.

From the moment I started watching Faceoff, I was hooked. The level of talent each season has exceeded the last. I am glad to have some of the vets back. I am proud of the growth in some of the vets as artists and some in their personal life ( Frank). Mr. Westmore is such an inspiration and the artists, vets and rookies alike are blessed to have him for guidance. Thanks for allowing us to see how it is behind the scenes and all the hard work and dedication it takes for special effects to look effortless.

This is everything you could want from a reality competition show. The contestants are talented and creative, the challenges are diverse and interesting, and the show doesn't focus on manufactured interpersonal drama. Most of the drama is generated by accidents in the workroom, which I find way more interesting. You really get to see a lot of the process.

Face Off is one of my favorite shows. Highly recommend.

Love Faceoff. Art Competition.....doesn't get any better. One thing I really like about this show is it focuses on the craft and not the drama that usually comes with reality TV. Very well produced and refreshing to watch. Hope they keep making them, I will keep watching them.

For a reality show, this is one of the best, I think. Of course, you need to have at least some interest in makeup FX. I've been loving horror and sci fi movies for fifty years. I've been watching this series since the beginning, back when I got the SciFi Channel on cable. It's fun to see how the makeup is done. And it's fun to see amateurs competing under the kind of stress they'd experience as professionals. The show is well done and the judges are well known/famous people in the industry. I've been so glad that I still had an option for viewing this series after I'd cancelled my cable. Thanks again, Amazon. (Wish you could offer it on Prime, but I guess I understand.)

Creativity and hard work rewarded - my kind of reality show! However, I've watched every season and this is the first time it crossed my mind that the judging may be skewed. Hopefully this isn't overly scripted or phony judging.

I absolutely love this show. I watch it when it airs and then I buy it the moment that it's available on Amazon. It's the best of the competition 'reality' shows. I love the creativity of the contestants and the celebrity guests. I love the different challenges as well.

In this season, I love that the Veterans of previous seasons were invited back. To be honest, when I first saw that Frank was back from season one, and that Miranda had been invited back from season two, I wasn't that happy. But they showed that they learned a little thing called professionalism and the quality of their work had improved a great deal. The only Veteran that I didn't really like seeing back was Eric Z. from season four. He seems a bit timid and soft spoken for that kind of competition and perhaps maybe even a bit out of his element. I do feel that there were better choices from season four. Such as Eric F., Alam, Kris and Katie. But overall, the choices of Veterans were good. I love seeing Tate and RJ back. Two of my most favorite competitors from previous seasons as well as Roy, Laura and Alanna.

The newcomers are a group of talented artists with the exception of one. Tolin doesn't seem to know what will 'fly' and what won't. He doesn't take the judge's critiques well and it's easy to see why he ends up where he does. Eddie is the other one that I was pretty disappointed with. He seems a bit green and he has this smug smile on his face most of the time, even when he's talking about going home. He's not the most appealing of the contestants.

Every episode is good, but I had an issue with some of the contestants that made it through to the next week. The first came in Mother Earth Goddess. I didn't think that RJ made the right decision with concept, but Eddie's piece was just atrocious.
