The Game Show Network’s popular body painting competition Skin Wars is getting a new host to go with its new after-show.
YouTube sensation and makeup expert Kandee Johnson hosts Skin Wars: The Naked Truth on the Door3 YouTube Channel on Wednesdays immediately following the 9 p.m. ET/PM airing of the Rebecca Romijn-hosted Skin Wars, which launched August 6 and continues weekly for eight episodes.
Featuring recaps and exclusive interviews, commentary by Johnson and a “Skinterview” with that week’s eliminated contestant, Skin Wars: The Naked Truth also offers an online sweepstakes where viewers can attempt to predict the next ouster and win prizes.
Johnson’s parent program, Skin Wars, is a 60-minute weekly competition to find the most accomplished body painter in America, boasting a judging panel consisting of RuPaul and body painting icons Craig Tracy and Robin Slonina.
The winner receives $100,000 cash, a year’s supply of paint and will become the featured guest artist at IMATS, New York City’s premiere body painting trade show.
Door3 is GSN’s brand-new channel targeted to 18 to 25 year olds, and in a statement, Jonathan Small, vice-president, digital programming, GSN Network, claims the platform has “been quietly building a base of 100,000 subscribers” over the past six months.
