Last week was so underwhelming I sort of pushed it out of my brain but anyway it was Alex who got sent home even though Autumn clearly should have been booted. This week opens with the artists meeting up with Mac at Six Flags where they meet the guest judge this week who is none other than Bryan Singer. SyFy shouts out Jack the Giant Slayer with this week’s challenge by making the artists create two headed giants in teams of two. You gotta love shows centered around advertising and marketing. I’m surprised they didn’t have Nicholas Holt turn up to guest judge but he might be too busy crying into a pint of Ben and Jerry’s since Jennifer Lawrence dumped him recently.
The teams are as follows:
Alam and EricZ
Kris and EricF
Meagan and Jenna
Wayne and House
Autumn and Anthony
The groups take a few moments to gather inspiration from a huge ass Redwood Tree in the middle of the park. House has to resort to hand gestures to keep Slow Wayne’s attention on him. Concentration is hard, ya’ll. Meagan is worried about the time constraints because JENNA’S HAND HURTS. JENNA’S HAND HURTS and that is why she can’t work as fast as she wants to or as efficiently. Anthony also wants to do something different from the others so he opts for a more contorted head and several mutations. Alam and Eric want their giant to have their heads on their feet as if the giant slays other giants and then wears them as shoes. I didn’t really get the concept but Alam seemed all in so I think that fooled Eric into thinking it was a good thing. Autumn says she feels like she is on vacation since she is partnered with Anthony…yeah does she realize this is a competition? I just don’t get her. Kris and Eric are going large scale in that their giant is almost 12 feet tall and has to be sketched out on the floor. It will either be the biggest failure or the biggest piece ever in Face Off history.
Anthony is a smart cookie. He decides to fool Autumn into thinking she has all the control because he knows if he pushes her too far that her annoyingness will come out more. Personal shout-out to him for sparing the rest of us the wrath of Squeaks McGee. However he needs a haircut stat because I can’t with his feathery flowing mane. Autumn worries that Anthony will get most of the credit but isn’t she the one that thought she was on vacation by being teamed with him? House realizes that his partner is Slow Wayne so he scraps one of the three planned head sculpts and opts to do a two header like everyone else in order to get it completed on time. The best part is that House’s way of micromanaging is working simultaneously on the same sculpt with Wayne. That way he can discipline him in real time on what he is doing wrong and make up for his lack of speed. Seriously, Wayne has no sense of urgency. Mac and her dad stop by on Day 2 and walk around to inspect what everyone is doing. Mac Daddy points out a lot of flaws in everyone’s design except Alam and Eric…He must have visited them last and got tired of giving out advice. He points out that Eric had timing issues last time…did he forget that was because he was paired with Sloayne? Mac rushes him out because it’s past his bedtime and he gets cranky if he doesn’t have 14 hours of sleep.
