It’s pretty normal for a new show to lose a few viewers between the first and second episodes. However, Syfy’s version of Being Human seems to have been an exception. The second part of the “There Goes The Neighborhood” reached 2.14 million total viewers last night – a 9% increase over last week’s impressive premiere.
Here is a little preview of what to expect on tomorrow’s premiere episode of Face Off the special effects make up competition on Syfy. Hosted by McKenzie Westmore (Passions), the competition will be judged by Ve Neill (Pirates of the Caribbean, Edward Scissorhands), Glenn Hetrick (Heroes, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The X-Files) and Patrick Tatopoulos (Underworld, Independence Day, Resident Evil: Extinction).
Take a look at how the contestants will work in pairs and draw inspiration from animals in order to build a never seen before creature. However, some teams start to see their creations are similar to others. Will they have to build something new from scratch, or simply beat out the others?
As an added bonus, you can also see video from the live event at The Grove mall in Los Angeles.
Face Off premieres Wednesday, January 26th, at 10PM ET.
