YFX from "Fake Off" is one of the teams competing in the truTV reality series. The group's nine members range in age from 18 to 48 years old.

YFX is a theatrical mime and illusion group from Detroit, Michigan, a city that has been going through tough times lately. YFX stands for Young Phoenix Rising. It aims to provide a safe and fun environment where the community can learn the fundamentals of mime, movement and performance. YFX is the low-tech team of the entire competition. They build everything from scratch and hope their enthusiasm and acting ability will shine through.

Company leader Todd Farley has taught mime for more than 35 years and has toured more than 40 countries. An early student was Darren Stevenson, whose Push Physical Theatre is also competing in "Fake Off." Who will win out — the master of the student? The members of YFX usually take a year to prep and stage a piece, so the time constraints on "Fake Off" will be an enormous challenge, but it's one they can definitely handle.
