Kyle Vest, Orlando local, talented body painter and former go-go dancer, aerial ice skater and stilt walker will be competing in the second season of Skin Wars, a show on GSN about body painting.  

The show revolves around twelve contestants who will compete in, "elaborate body painting challenges to avoid elimination and win over the approval of judges, including legendary entertainer RuPaul Charles and body painting icons Craig Tracy and Robin Slonina."  

The winner walks away with "$100,000 cash prize, an all-expense paid trip for two to the World Body Painting Festival in Austria and a nationally-distributed Royal and Langnickel custom brush collection with their name on it. Natalie Fletcher of Bend, Oregon, was named the series’ first winner in season 1." 

Skin Wars is hosted by Rebecca Romijn, who you may remember as the actress who used to played Mystique in the X-Men movies or as "The Bearded Lady," in Norm McDonald's Dirty Work.  

The show will premiere on June 10th at 9 p.m. ET.
