Rebecca Romijn to Host ‘Skin Wars’By: Kimberly Ripley - July 9, 2014
Rebeccca Romijn will soon be back on TV as the host of a new skin painting competition show. Called Skin Wars, artists will compete as body painters for the ultimate prize. Game Show Network announced the list of contestants who will compete in the 8-series hour-long competition show that aims to ‘find the most talented and versatile body painters in the country.’
The contestants for this inaugural season of Skin Wars include paramedic and firefighter Alan Anderson from Denver, former college track star Angela Roberts from Louisiana, face and body painting workshop owner Dutch Bihary from Seattle, air box master Felle from Detroit, graffiti artist and body painting instructor Gear Boxxx from Las Vegas (yes, that is x times 3), hypnotherapist, reverend, and spiritual body painter Mythica Von Griffyn from Denver, classical and technical painter Natalie Fletcher from Oregon, artist and roller derby queen Nicole Hays from Florida, body painter and former wrestler Sean Avram from Vermont, and body painter of nudes, Shannon Holt from Orlando. It sounds like in addition to lots of talent, this list is probably comprised of a cast of diverse characters, too.
In addition to Rebecca Romijn as host, judges on Skin Wars will include entertainer Ru Paul as well a body painting icons Craig Tracy and Robin Slonina.
So what does the winner of Skin Wars receive–in addition to keeping company with the lovely Rebecca Romijn? He or she will receive $100,000 in cash and a one-year supply of paint, as well as the honor of being the featured guest artist at IMATS, which is the premiere body painting trade show held in New York City each year.
Rebecca Romijn is a former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and she was married to Full House actor John Stamos. She has been happily married to actor Jerry O’Connell since 2007. The couple has two little girls.
This will be the first regular TV appearance for the actress since back in September of 2013, when she played a private investigator in TNT’s King & Maxwell. What do you think about this new show? Will you tune in to see artists compete by painting on bodies? Or might you tune in simply to see Rebecca Romijn?
Skin Wars premieres on August 6th at 9:00 P.M. on GSN.
