Robert Bennett from "Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge" is one of the contestants on the Syfy reality competition series. He is a sculptor for Walt Disney Imagineering in Orlando, Florida. He was raised though in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He says, "This is all I'll ever do. This is all I have ever done. I've struggled but it's not about the money. It's about going to work and loving what you do every day. Even when it's crappy, it's still the best job."

Robert Bennett truly loves his work. He is surrounded by masters of the craft every day, creating iconic characters that will live forever. Robert started creating as a kid and spent a lot of time in his room making monsters. His strengths are sculpting and animatronics figure finishing. Robert loves taking inanimate objects and turning them into something that can evoke an emotion. He never wanted to do anything else but creature design and has gained most of his experience by working with themed environments.

Robert sees this opportunity with The Henson Company as a way to transition into working in film where his true passions lie. Henson has always been a part of his life, from "The Dark Crystal" to "Fraggle Rock," making up an important part of his childhood. For the competition, he is away from his partner and his family, but he is encouraged by their support. Robert knows that competition pushes everyone to their limits, but he believes he's the perfect person to work for The Henson Company. He's ready to face the competition.
