Skin Wars is a new competitive game show where body painting artists are put to the test to see who is the best body painter in the country. There are ten contestants who are pitted against one another in demanding challenges to see who can come up with the most versatile and creative painting upon their human canvas. The contestants live with each other in between the challenges. Each episode is an hour long. Each week a contestant who performed poorly is eliminated by a panel of expert judges. This will narrow down the contestants to a final three, where one person will be chosen as the most skilled, creative and well-rounded body painter. This winner will receive a cash prize of one hundred thousand dollars, a years supply of body paint and guest appearance at a trade show. Each episode contains a different challenge for the contestants, forcing them to expand their skills in body painting and really show the judges their best work in order to succeed throughout the series.
