Season 1

Skin Wars is an American reality competition game show television series in which contestants perform weekly challenges in the art of body painting, with one contestant being eliminated each week until only one remains to win the grand prize.

The host is model and actress Rebecca Romijn, who was the first model to be body-painted for Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue in the year before she made her big-screen debut as the blue body-painted Mystique in the film X-Men.

The series pits talented and versatile body painters against each other for a $100,000 grand prize in a series of challenges that promise amazing reveals.

Entertainer and drag artist RuPaul joins body painting rock stars Craig Tracy and Robin Slonina as judges, with one contestant eliminated every episode.

There are regular guest judges including Carson Kressley, the fashion expert on the TV hit Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. Another guest is Wonder Woman Lynda Carter, who comes in to judge after a superhero challenge.

Some of the contestants are as colourful as the art they produce. They come from various backgrounds including tattoo, comic books and freehand (one even paints vehicles) and use their talent to turn the body's blank canvas into works of art.

Each week, contestants are given a particular theme and collateral. Once the clock starts ticking, contestants need to battle it out for the best body-painting design of the day, which guarantees the contestants a step closer to the ultimate grand prize.

The body painting artists with "skin in the game" this season includes:
