Ben Bayouth from "Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge" is one of the contestants on the Syfy reality competition series. He is a freelance special effects artist from Woodland Hills, California. He says, "Everyone's gonna walk away with a positive experience, but someone's gonna walk away with the best. And it's gonna be me."

Ben Bayouth has set up a small special effects shop in his garage for his creature design work. Ben's father is an artist, which exposed Ben to art from a very young age. As a kid, Ben's toys were never enough and he began to make his own from tin foil and duct tape. As a teenage camp counselor, Ben created all the props and costumes for the camp's performances.

Working for Henson would be the "gold opportunity." "The Dark Crystal" was Ben's first exposure to Henson's work, and he credits the company for bringing the art of puppeteering into the Hollywood spotlight. As much as he wishes he could hate them, he likes all of his competitors, but believes his talents will win him the money.

Ben has worked for various effects houses in the Hollywood area on such projects as "Man of Steel," "Robot Chicken" and "Grimm." Because he's in the industry, it keeps him current on the newest techniques. Foam fabrication is his technical strength, and he says mold-making is his weakness. He also says he is surprisingly okay at sewing.

Bill Bryan, the creator of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from "Ghostbusters," is a family friend and inspired Ben with his work growing up. Ben is passionate about creating creatures we relate to and believes most creature elements come from animals. He looks forward to this opportunity with great optimism and determination.
