Like most Face Off viewers, we are still in denial that the Syfy reality competition is coming to an end. After 13 seasons, just one more winner will be announced — joining the ranks of highly talented prosthetic artists who have earned the title of Face Off champion.

With just a couple of episodes left until the finale, fans are predicting either Jordan Patton or Matt Valentine will be the last man standing. However, just like us, executive producer Dwight Smith hopes Face Off gets the chance to name more winners. "I personally feel like Face Off still has a lot of gas left in the tank,” he told Reality Blurred. "There’s tremendous potential for the show to go far beyond where it is now. So for us, it’s disappointing [that], at least for now, we won’t be able to do that." 

Some fans even started a petition to bring back the show — and it currently has over 18,000 signatures. "It is incredibly sad to see that Face Off is going to be ending after 13 seasons. DO NOT LET SEASON 13 BE THE LAST," superfan Candice Carter wrote. "Besides having a phenomenal cast of judges with Glenn, Ve, and Neville and McKenzie hosting, it has incredibly talented contestants showing their amazing talents and creations for us all to enjoy."

We're sure past winners also feel the same way. Keep scrolling to see what Conor McCullagh, Dina Carmusti, Cig Neutron, and more Face Off champions are doing now.
