Evil Will Arnett Makes an Appearance in ‘LEGO Masters’ for First-Ever Individual Challenge
Things were turned upside down this week on LEGO Masters with the return of Evil Will Arnett. Last season, the host’s evil alter-ego inspired the Good vs. Evil challenge, where teams collaborated with their competition. This time, he was even more meddlesome, forcing the five remaining teams to split up and work as individuals.
The teams entered the brick pit this week to discover a LEGO wall splitting the room in half. There is confusion among everyone when suddenly Evil Will thunderously appears on the screen revealing his evil re-write of the episode. The challenge that was supposed to give teams a choice of land or sea-themed builds became an individual challenge that had them building both. For the first time in LEGO Masters history, the brick artists had to work individually without any help from their partners.
By Land or by Sea, a Tale of Two Wills
This week’s challenge was supposed to have the brick artist teams sculpting either a land or sea creature until Evil Will had his say. Now the teams had to split up, with one member building a land creature and the other building a creature of the sea. Once they decided, they took their places on either side of the wall without a chance to collaborate with their teammate. The intensity of the challenge was multiplied, having only five hours to sculpt recognizable animals out of LEGO.
Later, Will asserts his authority over Evil Will as host and decides the teams should reunite and complete a second challenge. The artists were given another five hours and had to mash their two creatures together. For Zack and his lionfish, it was a chance to save the tail that fell off when getting it in place for judging. It was a challenge for other teams to figure out how to combine creatures built to different scales.
The Brick Masters: Who Was Eliminated?
After all the Evil Will shenanigans, it was time for brick masters Amy Corbett and Jamie Berard to do the hard part of eliminating someone. They didn’t judge the individual builds, but focused on how well the teams executed their animal mashups, hoping to see imaginative, new species and a glimpse of a habitat they consider home.
Despite a lack of confidence in the mashup and time to use it running out, brothers Mark and Steven decided to hold onto the golden brick for another week. The judges went on to give them their toughest critique in the competition yet. Their gamble paid off and they just missed being in the bottom two.
Ahead of them were the twins Caleb and Jacob along with brothers Zack and Wayne. Both teams had built to similar scales individually making the mashup easier. Their choice of what elements to use from each animal created creatures that the brick masters loved. It was Caleb and Jacob that took the top spot, finally giving them their first challenge win.
Now the team of Dave and Richard were joined by DIY moms Michelle and Natalie to make up the bottom teams. Richard’s decision to build coral and Dave sculpting such a large penguin made for a difficult mashup. The brick masters thought it ended up being a great character, but not quite a mashup. Despite loving a lot of the elements they built, the judges decided Dave and Richard missed the challenge, resulting in the biggest upset of season two.
Just four teams remain and one more episode to the finale. Who will get cut next? Catch the next episode of ‘LEGO Masters’ next Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.
