Frank Ippolito from "Face Off" is one of the contestants in Season 5 of the Syfy reality special effects make-up artist competition series. He previously competed in Season 1. He is a 35-year-old freelance makeup artists who currently lives in Burbank, California.

Season 5

Frank Ippolito was a formerly nerdy kid from Cleveland, Ohio, who hung out in the basement and made monsters, inspiring his true calling in special effects artistry. Thirteen years ago, he moved to Los Angeles to turn his passion into a profession, and four years ago he was in the first season of "Face Off."

He now owns his own F/X shop and has racked up some notable feature film credits; he recently collaborated with Danny DeVito on the horror film "St. Sebastian's." Still possessed of a passionate attitude and a no-nonsense style, he hopes a second go-round on "Face Off" will allow him to show more of what he is capable of. His favorite movie with special effects is "John Carpenter's The Thing."

Season 1

Ippolito has worked on special effects and make-up for movies that include "Dinner for Schmucks," starring Steve Carell, "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest," starring Johnny Depp, "Casanova," starring Heath Ledger, and "The Chronicles of Riddick," starring Vin Diesel.
