Bad judging and poorly produced
22 October 2018 | by MattenhofSee all my reviews

This show was a copycat of Project Runway's format. It would have been ok except that Skin Wars prefers drama instead of focusing the talent itself.

The three seasons have been filled with arrogant contestants and the producers focused heavily on the contestant's arrogance to provide drama and as a result, very stressful to watch.

Judging also didn't make sense. One arrogant contestant didn't meet the brief of creating a robot but still made it through.

The contestant who followed the brief and raised his concern was shut down by the arrogant judge.

This show was just a mess filled with cocky competitors and bad judging.

A talent competition should focus on the talents and not incite drama.

I'm glad that the show was cancelled. Good riddance.
