“Skin Wars,” a body-painting competition series on the Game Show Network, has gained enough buzz to warrant an online after-show. Starting tonight, “Skin Wars: The Naked Truth” will air on GSN’s YouTube hub, Door3, right after the main show’s television broadcast.
To host the after-show, GSN has tapped someone who’s endemic to YouTube: makeup guru Kandee Johnson. As first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the online show will recap “Skin Wars,” as well as feature segments like “The Skinterview,” during which Johnson will speak with the TV show’s cast.
The after-show will also include an interactive element. “The Naked Truth” will ask viewers to venture a guess at the following week’s elimination. This will culminate in prizes for some participants through an internet sweepstakes.
“Skin Wars” itself is hosted by Rebecca Romijn, while RuPaul, Craig Tracy and Robin Slonina judge the contestants’ work.
The hour-long show pits body painters against each other for a $100,000 prize. New episodes, as well as the digital follow-up, will air every Wednesday night from August 6 to September 24, spanning eight episodes in total.
