face off season 7 premiere cast elimination syfy 'Face Off' Season 7 premiere: Do you like the elimination twist?

With “Face Off” Season 7, the hopeful makeup artists had to face a major twist right off the bat: Not all of them would actually survive to compete on the show. The rest would be eliminated en masse, never having the chance to create strange makeup designs.

This isn’t the first time a competition show has featured such a twist. “Top Chef” did it for its New Orleans season, sending home a huge number of seemingly promising chefs before the competition really began. But for “Face Off” — a show that represents a huge opportunity for professionals in a highly specialized field — it seems even crueler.

But maybe that will make the competition all the more intense. Vote in the poll below to express your opinion on the matter!
