It’s final four week here in Face Off land and this time we're going international. Our remaining artists were sent up to Toronto to check out the set of Defiance to prepare for their crucial task: choose two alien races from the Defiance universe and conceptualize a character based on their offspring. (Ow! Sexy times!) One shocking elimination later and we have our three finalists for next week's big season finale. Let's get to the recap.
At Stake This Season
2013 Fiat 500
Guest lecturer stint in New York and Paris
What You Missed
THEY CAME TO CANADA, YOU GUYS! And what a trip it was. As per reality television law, we had to see a quick city visiting montage of Toronto. Check out the highlights!
CN TOWER! CNE! Aaand we're back in LA.
Eric F didn't get to make the trip up north due to a "family issue.” We were told that everything was A-OK, so have to assume "family issue" is Face Off speak for "lost passport."
Loved the teamwork between Kris and Anthony when helping out each other's projects. Teddy Wilson has mentioned this a few times on the Face Off editions of InnerSpace Raw, but it's so great to see a reality competition show where teamwork is rewarded and encouraged. You can tell these guys were all pulling for each other, which makes all the contestants way more likeable. That's just not possible on other reality series and another reason why this is one of the most watchable shows on TV.
1. Anthony Kosar (Last Week - NR) That’s what we get for nearly writing him off last week. Kosar took home his season-high fifth Spotlight Challenge win in convincing fashion. While his competition scrambled to get their work done in a morning Poly Foam Party, Anthony was in full control this whole challenge. The love affair between him and the judges is blossomed again, with their review of his character on the brink of full make-out the entire time. With his past history of crushing challenges, gotta consider him the favourite to win in the finale.
2. Kris Kobinza (Last Week - #1) Solid work again by Kris, the only contestant to never be in the bottom of a challenge. With his four challenge wins and stinker-free project resume, he’s a serious threat to Anthony’s crown. You know he’s going to make a strong push.
3. Wayne Anderson (Last Week - #2) While he always brings quality work and effort in the challenges, it’s hard to believe that someone who hasn’t come in first once can win the whole season. He’ll need to completely blow the judges away to overcome Anthony and Kris.
Losers Lounge – Eric F
This is a tough one. My personal favourite competitor was on the bottom end of a really tough final four. Eric always brought the originality, both in his work and personality. In the end, he just couldn’t compete with the pure technical precision coming from the top three. Is this the end for Eric? Not necessarily.

Face Off: Redemption – Now Exclusively on Space.ca
We’re stoked to bring you all four online exclusive episodes from this season. In Redemption, the eliminated contestants compete for another chance to compete in the upcoming FIFTH season (just officially announced). Who do you want to see come back? The punk rock aesthetic of Eric F? The underrated concepts of Alam? The sleeveless fashions of House? Check out the first episode below to find out.
Coming Up Next Week (Tuesday 9e/6p)
In "Living the Dream," the final three must create a waterproof makeup for the show "Le Rêve" at The Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas. Vegas, baby! Bet on Anthony.
