Gasmii let’s face it…I’m built for reality tv competition recapping. Keep in mind this is going to be image heavy so let’s get down to this season opener which was kind of a downer because no one went home…forcefully at least.
Alana is the girlfriend of last season’s finalist, Ian, and the youngest contestant this season. She has a few credits under her belt on IMDB but so far nothing any of us would ever see or recognize. Her and Ian moved from NY to LA to jump right into the effects world.
CC is a makeup artist who can also do gore but I’m pretty sure she won’t last that long in the competition based on her drag queen make up. I don’t usually use nicknames but for some reason I want to call her Little Latrice because she reminds me of Drag Queen Latrice Royale.
Derek and his twin Eric are both competing this season and I really hope it won’t come down to sibling rivalry. It’s almost always drawn that way on these kind of shows but here’s hoping. He’s a tattoo artist that has also done makeup for Halloween Horror Nights in Orlando. Derek is taller than Eric so in the event he doesn’t wear his little knit hat, that’s how you can tell them apart
Eric is Derek’s twin and the shorter, hotter of the two. He’s been in Hong Kong for the past two years working with AEO studios but there’s not much else that I could find on him.
Jason was too quiet to judge in the first episode so I looked at his IMDB and saw that he worked on Staunton Hill which is one of the worst horror films ever made. No seriously it’s not worth your effort to look it up to watch it. The effects were good though so hopefully he pipes up and we get to see a bit more of him later on. I do have to say he is giving mad Teen Mom Ryan vibes.
Laura is blindingly white and was in an episode of Silk Stalkings back in the day and she wanted to be an effects artist after watching Predator as a child. Side Note…As a kid my friend’s dad thought it would be smart to make us watch Predator and then have us sleep in a tent later that night where he used a laser pointer to terrorize us. That shit traumatized me for years.
Nicole works for MAC so that’s why she always has a MAC forcefield on her face, it’s required by her job to always cake it on. She doesn’t have any real credits on IMDB but she’s also relatively new to the field. PS I love her hair color for some reason.
Rod is my early standout because he’s a nice type of guy that was willingly to lend a hand to help other contestants. He’s got a shit load of credits on IMDB but nothing we would know. His biggest credit is The Wishing Well which he basically did himself and played like 20 characters.
Roy is also a standout early favorite because he has some good ideas and he knows how to execute. He’s worked on Halloween II (the shitty Zombie one) and did props for Zombieland and I look forward to seeing him go far in the competition even though I want someone to just knock his hat off. I have a thing against hats for some reason.
