This week’s Face Off has the teams creating drivers for Mad Max style tricked-out vehicles. It is an elimination challenge this week so six teams enter the Thunderdome. But which team won’t exit? Results ahead.
The All-Stars are waiting out in the middle of nowhere when McKenzie Westmore drives up in a Hyundai (one of the show’s sponsors who are also providing a car as part of the season winner’s prize package) to introduce the challenge. This week each team selects a post-apocalyptic wasteland vehicle and creates a driver for it incorporating vehicle parts into the design.
Paul W.S. Anderson (the Resident Evil movies and the Death Race reboot) drops by to be a guest judge this week.
Emily and Tyler continue their Top Look streak though their design doesn’t quite fit the wasteland warrior theme of the challenge.
Ben and Evan create a burned character complete with mask that makes them a Top Look after being a Bottom Look last week.
Cig and George also have a burned character. The judges are impressed by everything about the character and they win their second challenge.
I was underwhelmed by the rest of the designs by Keaghlan & Melissa (top), Logan & Adam (middle) and Rachael & Gage (bottom). They are all Bottom Looks but they catch a break. The bottom teams are given an additional hour of time to fix their designs incorporating feedback from the judges. We won’t find out who survives the Thunderdome until next week...
