I'm really looking forward to this. Really enjoyed the first series.

Anybody watched the first episode?

Am I the only one who things the wrong person went out?

FLOrenze Thu 14-May-20 22:32:54

I know it is only the first episode, but there does not seem to be as many big personalities as the first series. I did enjoy it though.

@SchadenfreudePersonified yep I agree.
The amount of plastic surgery Jake has had to his face is shocking!

But I'm SO excited that it's back!

No I think out of the two lips Jakes was better, but if you look at the face challenge Jakes was worse.

I assume spoilers are allowed on here after episode shown on iplayer? If not please scroll past below......

It was obvious they’d do everything to save Jake. He’s got a “story” ie the one not taking it serious, he’ll have a talking to and start producing more. His face was shocking. I mean the make up with yellow flowers etc was just rubbish compared to the standard of the others and I don’t see how it took him as long to produce that as the others?! Ashley was robbed.

I love this program. I never wear make up. I don’t like drag or all the lip fillers. I’m not really a fan of Stacey (her mannerisms mainly) and I cannot stand the female judges “ding dong” bs. But I still love this programme grin A similarly I have no interest in fashion and cannot sew so much as a button one but love Sewing Bee blush

thelockdownbellyisoutofcontrol Thu 14-May-20 23:58:34

@PenguinsRule I also have no sewing skills but love the Sewing Bee, but that's mainly because of the genius that is Joe Lycett 😍

PenguinsRule Fri 15-May-20 01:10:50

Yeah he’s brilliant. Very deadpan. Loved him in his sparkly tracksuit this week. Funny I like the presenter and with judges in sewing bee but really don’t care for the presenter or either judge in glow up (make judge would be my favourite if had to choose!)

PenguinsRule Fri 15-May-20 01:12:18

Both judges....make judge. Sorry bad typing blush

PenguinsRule Fri 15-May-20 01:12:40

Make judge even. I give up blush

No I think out of the two lips Jakes was better,

Except he didn't fulfill the brief june. His lip wasn't remotely "ombre", even though it was tidier

The girl's may have been "reverse ombre"* and with a little bit of bleeding of the colours, but there was distinct shading. A much better job withi the specifications of the brief.

*and as far as I know, "ombre" just means graduating colours - nobody says "revers ombre" except "ding-dong" wumman.

Penguin - that's what I thought - he was a "character" that they could get more mileage out of. Look at the way he turned the tears on (I HATE that sort of "oh-poor-me" emotional manipulation.

Very unfair to poor Ashley, though.

Some of the faces - telling their stories - were amazing!

Cocolapew Fri 15-May-20 19:37:19

Jake has the potential to be very irritating.
I hate the face off, the challenge should be what they go out on.

I agree should def look at the overall performance and cocolapew, I think he already is annoying,

Butterymuffin Fri 15-May-20 23:46:25

Ah, I enjoyed series 1 so will add this to my iplayer list.

SchadenfreudePersonified Fri 15-May-20 23:51:11

I agree CoCo.

Face-off is a waste of time.

mooching Sat 16-May-20 10:28:21

I felt the same in the last series, there was a guy that was in the face off loads and always pulled it out of the bag. He was the ken doll one that spent hours on his own make up every day. Jake should have gone because as my DS put it 'mum even we could have done better than that' it was the worst piece I have seen from either series and looked a mess.

If I had been a model I wouldn't have been able to have been touched by those nails so I'm glad he was told to take them off.

Some of the other pieces were really amazing though! Very excited that it is back!

SchadenfreudePersonified Sat 16-May-20 11:15:58

There was a young woman on the previous series as well, who also was kept on far beyond when she should have gone. She ended up in the face-off week after week and always stopped by the skin of her teeth!

God knows how - some of her offerings were pathetic! Not even bad in an imaginative or exciting way - just tedious rubbish.

I was glad to see his nails go, too. I wouldn't want them near my eyes if I were a model. And his fish lips are appalling! (Though at least not likely to blind anyone.)

mooching Sat 16-May-20 13:42:33

Those lips look incredibly sore, almost like you've had an allergy reaction. Can anyone enlighten me as to whether this is true? It isn't a fashion I understand at all. There are lots that I wouldn't do and lots I'm not personally keen on but have an each to their own attitude but this one I'd be so sad if one of my children felt the need to do.

On another note I thought the girl from Hong long was awesome and the Irish one's was fab. The girl in the red chair was frightening and therefore also brilliant. Sorry, haven't learnt their names yet!

SchadenfreudePersonified Thu 21-May-20 21:40:16

Well - I thought that Jake should have been in the Face Off along with Bernie.

There don't seem to be any middling ones- contestants were either really rubbish or fantastic this week.

When we get down to the final furore five, the judges will have a job on their hands, I think.

NotTheOnlyPomInTheVillage Thu 21-May-20 21:43:41

Ooh, is this on Netflix?

FLOrenze Thu 21-May-20 21:47:55

It is on IPlayer BBC3

SchadenfreudePersonified Thu 21-May-20 23:02:05

Oh - apologies if I've given a spoiler - as it had been on, I assumed fans would have seen it.

I'll keep my gob shut.
