As part of the network's signature unscripted series, two hourlong specials are set for November, with host McKenzie Westmore exploring the world of body painting. Naked and Painted will air Nov. 12 at 9 p.m., which will also feature the stars of Syfy's upcoming Naked Vegas, bowing Oct. 29.

The second special -- Top 20 Countdown: Judges' Favorites, Face Off -- will feature Glenn Hetrick, Ve Neill and Neville Page looking back at the best creations in the past five seasons and ranking the 20 best. The special airs Nov. 19 at 9 p.m.  

The Face Off renewal comes as Syfy is prepping an eight-episode series featuring competitors building creatures and vying for a job at Jim Henson's Creature Shop.
