Who knew we’d be using so much alliteration in an “Ink Master” preview article? Yet, here we are…
In terms of letting us know what is actually going to happen on next week’s new episode of the show, this really did not give a whole lot away at all. Instead, it only showed the final four (Cleen Rock One, Christian Buckingham, Anthony Michaels, and James Vaughn) preparing to do tattoo battle with one another. This is going to be intense, but at the same time, we also have a feeling who is the favorite right now: Anthony.
If Anthony does win this, wouldn’t that make for the best story? He’s a newbie who entered this competition with less experience than many other people, but he continues to rise to the occasion. Not only that, but he’s likable, and he really prioritizes hard work over starting drama.
With that said, we would understand a win for either Cleen or Christian, given that both of them have been in the competition for a long time. For James to win this season would just be odd, and no offense to him, but it wouldn’t feel right. He may be one of the best artists there, but he’s barely been on this season. Do we blame the show for the twist that makes us want to root against him? Mostly, and we feel bad for it since it’s not like he did anything to make us feel that way. We just would’ve liked to see him around all season.
