SYFY'S "FACE OFF" TRAVELS TO TOKYO, JAPAN FOR AN ANIME INSPIRED CHALLENGE ON NEXT WEEK'S ALL-NEW EPISODE, TUESDAY, MARCH 4 AT 9 PM ET/PT

NEW YORK - February 26, 2014 - Syfy's acclaimed reality competition series Face Off continues its bold and extreme season as the eight remaining artists travel to the other side of the globe for a special episode shot in Tokyo, Japan. Academy-Award nominated makeup artist Kazuhiro Tsuji (Planet of the Apes, Men in Black, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) and renowned anime artist and sci-fi illustrator Hidetaka Tenjin make guest appearances in the all-new episode airing Tuesday, March 4 at 9 PM ET/PT.

In the episode, "Ego Trip Abroad," the artists embark on the trip of a lifetime where they'll gather inspiration for two extreme challenges celebrating the fascinating culture of Japan. After a day of exploration, they arrive at an ancient temple where host McKenzie Westmore and two-time Academy Award-nominated makeup artist Kazuhiro Tsuji are waiting to deliver their next Foundation Challenge - to create an original take on a traditional Japanese Oni, which are ogre-like Japanese demons. The next day, the artists venture off into the heart of Akihabara, Tokyo's tech district and ground zero for anime, where they meet genius anime artist Hidetaka Tenjin. They learn their Spotlight Challenge will be to create a character based on one of Japan's most famous exports, anime, with a surprise personal twist thrown into the mix.

The eight artist still in the competition are: Chloe Sens of Austin, TX; Corinne Foster of Whittier, CA; Daran Holt of Kansas City, MO; George Schminky of Walnut Creek, CA; Graham Schofield of Boston, MA; Niko Gonzalez of San German, Puerto Rico; Rashaad Santiago of Bronx, NY; and Tyler Green of Litchfield, CT.
