SYFY RENEWS ITS HIT REALITY COMPETITION SERIES "FACE OFF" FOR A SIXTH SEASON

TWO NEW STAND-ALONE FACE OFF SPECIALS SLATED FOR NOVEMBER

NEW YORK - October 21, 2013 - Syfy announces that its critically-acclaimed hit reality competition series Face Off will return for a sixth season in January 2014, introducing 14 new makeup artists in what will be Face Off's boldest season yet. In the new season the contestants will face extreme challenges that will inspire them to create the most magnificent characters and creatures in Face Off history. And coming this November, Syfy debuts two original Face Off specials -Naked and Painted and Judges' Favorites.

Season five of Face Off is in all new episodes Tuesday nights at 9PM ET/PT on Syfy. In tomorrow night's episode, the remaining five are tasked with creating an original dark elf warrior character. The remaining five artists on season five are Miranda Jory of Los Angeles, CA; Laney Parkhurst of Manitou Beach, MI; Tate Steinsiek of Morris, OK; Laura Tyler of Orlando, FL; and Roy Wooley of Tucker, GA.

The competition culminates with the season five finale on Tuesday, November 5 at 9PM (ET/PT) when the final three contestants each create two lead characters from Swan Lake: a woman transforming into a swan and the sorcerer who casts the spell on her. These finale makeups will be put to the test in an epic performance by the Los Angeles Ballet.

Syfy will also debut two original one-hour Face Off specials in November. Naked and Painted features host McKenzie Westmore as she explores the world of body painting with a variety of special guest experts including former Face Off contestants and the industry's top body painting artists. The special will feature two start-to-finish body painting demonstrations in the lab. Naked and Painted airs November 12 at 9PM (ET/PT) on Syfy.

Also featured in the Naked and Painted special are the stars of Syfy's upcoming series Naked Vegas, which premieres Tuesday, October 29 at 10PM (ET/PT) on Syfy.

In the special Top 20 Countdown: Judges' Favorites, Face Off judges Glenn Hetrick, Ve Neill and Neville Page take a look back at the best contestant creations from all five seasons of the series. In addition to ranking the top twenty best make-ups, they will call out some of the funniest, most surprising and impressively ambitious designs the show has ever seen. Top 20 Countdown: Judges' Favorites airs November 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Syfy.
