"FACE OFF'S" SIXTH SEASON DEBUTS TUESDAY, JANUARY 14 AT 9 PM ET/PT ON SYFY

Face Off's Boldest and Most Extreme Season to Date Features an Anime Inspired Challenge That Takes the Series to Tokyo, Japan

NEW YORK - November 19, 2013 - Syfy's smash hit and acclaimed unscripted series, Face Off, is back for a bold and extreme sixth season Tuesday, January 14 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Fifteen up-and-coming special effects make-up artists are introduced, all eager for the opportunity to achieve success in the competitive special effects makeup field. And in a Face Off first, the contestants travel to the other side of the globe for a special episode shot in Tokyo, Japan, where they are tasked with creating a stylized anime character based on their own alter ego.

Returning to the lab for the new season is actress and host McKenzie Westmore, along with judges Ve Neill (The Hunger Games, The Amazing Spider-Man, Pirates of the Caribbean), Glenn Hetrick (CSI: New York, The Hunger Games, Heroes) and Neville Page (Avatar, Prometheus). World-renowned makeup artist - and McKenzie's dad - Michael Westmore resumes his role as the official contestant mentor.

The guest judges on tap for season six include Oscar winning makeup artist Tami Lane (Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings), Stephen Sommers (The Mummy, The Mummy Returns), Scott Stewart (Sin City, Legion), Oren Peli (Paranormal Activity), Oscar winning makeup artist Howard Berger (Inglorious Bastards, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe), famed creature actor Doug Jones (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth), former Face Off series judge Patrick Tatopolous (Total Recall, 300: Rise of an Empire, Batman vs. Superman), author Roald Dahl's daughter Lucy Dahl, Oscar and BAFTA winning makeup artist Valli O'Reilly (Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, Alice in Wonderland), Len Wiseman (Underworld, Sleepy Hollow), Two-time Oscar nominated makeup artist Kazuhiro Tsuji (Planet of the Apes, Men in Black, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button), anime artist and sci-fi illustrator Hidetaka Tenjin and world famous music producer and DJ, Rusko.

Season six presents the most extreme challenge creative for the series yet, compelling the contestants to push the possibilities in nearly every aspect of their makeups to inspire the most magnificent characters and creatures in Face Off history. The season's first Spotlight challenge is a Beauty & the Beast makeup in which the contestants must create an original Beast who would live in a chosen castle with its Belle. Additional challenges include the creation of an intricate Medieval dragon warrior that breathes not only fire, but also elements like ice and poison; an outlandish rock 'n roll guitarist character; an original wizard inspired by an array of unique wands on display; a whimsical creation inspired by Roald Dahl characters that have been written about, but never-before-seen on screen; and a futuristic robot that has replaced humans in the workforce, complete with functional advantages in a particular field. Continuing the Face Off tradition, the season culminates with another visually spectacular and elaborate finale event - an amazing electronic, nightclub-inspired light show featuring the world famous DJ Rusko.

The Face Off contestants will be whittled down week by week, until only three remain for a finale showdown. The winning artist will receive $100,000, a 2014 Fiat and a VIP trip from Kryolan Professional Make-Up to one of their 85 international locations. Kryolan Professional Make-Up continues as the official make-up sponsor of Face Off.
