“Face Off” Mini-Cap (7.11): Reading and writing and, hey, is that a minotaur?

on

This week it’s everyone’s worst nightmares. No, not creepy clowns. No, not snakes. No, not horror movie poster characters. It’s high school students. Run. RUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUN.

THE CHALLENGE:
This challenge brought the contestants back to high school – mythical high school. Each had to pick a fantastical creature (faun, minotaur, goblin, cyclops) as a teenager.

THE TWIST:
But wait, there’s more! This is not just any teen, but a teen from a certain high school clique: jock, cheerleader, nerd or emo.

THE GOOD:
Drew’s emo faun and Cig’s nerd minotaur were the best of the week. The judges loved Drew’s subtle and smart choices, from the skinny jeans down to the ear gauges. Also, his model really sold it with the, “Don’t touch me.” Super eeeeeemo. (That was my faun voice, in case you didn’t realize.)

THE BAD:
Is this revenge of the nerds? Because both of this week’s bottom two were from popular cliques. George’s jock goblin was a literal blockhead and Rachael’s mean girl faun cheerleader didn’t convey their mythical creatures enough. But in the end the judges deemed Rachael’s angry-looking pom-pom carrier the worst. Also, was it just me or did she look like a vampire Cordelia Chase?

THE RANDOM:
Oh, Sasha. Girl, what? I know Cyclops doesn’t necessarily have to be a one-eyed creature. But she also shouldn’t be an alien Paris Hilton. Yes, I know, that’s redundant.

THE WTF WERE THEY THINKING:
Hey, judges, what the hell. I love, love, loved Dina’s nerd goblin. Wait, have I mentioned I loved it? Because I LOVED it. That is the cutest lil nerd I’ve ever seen, goblin or no goblin. But, as anyone who has watched this show knows, the judges aren’t big on whimsy. That’s why R.J.’s fantastically fantastical bellhop character was robbed, robbed I say. Yes, I’m still bitter about something that happened in Season 2.

THE GAY:
Stella did a very, very good emo cow. No, it wasn’t a bull because as the lone female judge Edna Mode Lois Burwell explained to her male counterparts, it was a female minotaur. Sheesh. Yep, and that right there is why having men and women on a judging panel is always important. Anyway, Stella was safe, again. Which is good, but also I think some of her work has totally been worthy of top looks. So, you know, get on that judges.

So, what did you think this week? And, admit it, you might have liked high school better if there were minotaurs, fauns and goblins walking through the halls. Or been really frightened. Either way, it would have been interesting.
