Joey ‘Hollywood’ Hamilton Named Season 3 Winner of “Ink Master” in Live Series Final

JOEY ‘HOLLYWOOD’ HAMILTON NAMED SEASON 3 WINNER OF

“INK MASTER” IN LIVE SEASON FINALE 

Season 3 Wins $100,000, Feature in Inked Magazine & Bragging Rights Title of ‘Ink Master’  

New York, NY, October 8, 2013 – In a live finale that was both intense and exciting, Joey ‘Hollywood’ Hamilton was named winner of Season 3 of “Ink Master.”  Hamilton wins a cash prize of $100,000, a feature article in the premiere tattoo publication Inked and the ultimate bragging rights title of ‘Ink Master.’ In addition, Kyle Dunbar was given a second chance at tattoo redemption and voted on to “Ink Master” Season 4 airing next year after being voted back by the fans during a LIVE tattoo challenge at the finale.

Sixteen of the top tattoo artists from around the country battled it out all season in permanent ink, competing in various tattoo challenges that not only tested the artists’ technical skills, but also their on-the-spot creativity where they had to create and execute an original tattoo on a ‘human canvas.’ Each week’s challenges focused on a different tattoo technique and style.   After every challenge the contestants faced a tough panel made up series host Dave Navarro (Jane’s Addiction) and judges, renowned tattoo artists Chris Nunez (“Miami Ink”) and Oliver Peck (Elm Street Tattoo).  The masterpieces these artists created will last forever, but so will their mistakes.   

The final three contestants: Katherine ‘Tatu Baby’ Flores, self-employed tattoo artist in Miami, FL, Joey ‘Hollywood’ Hamilton, tattoo artist at Club Tattoo in Las Vegas, NV and Jime Litwalk, artist at Hart and Huntington in Orlando, FL were each assigned their own master canvas.   They were sent back to their home bases to complete a 35-hour tattoo, where they had five, seven-hour sessions with their master canvas to create the best tattoo design of their career.

In the finale Flores, Hamilton and Litwalk revealed their master canvases to the judges and America.   After the judges reviewed the artwork, ‘Tatu Baby’ was eliminated from the competition.  In the end it came down to Joey ‘Hollywood’ Hamilton and Jime Litwalk with the judges in a close call, ultimately naming Hamilton the season 3 winner of “Ink Master.” 

In last week’s semi-final episode, a surprise twist was introduced for the 13 eliminated.  Series host Dave Navarro announced that all of the eliminated contestants would get a second chance to prove themselves worthy on “Ink Master,” where it would be up to the fans to vote for their top two favorite artists to compete in a LIVE head-to-head tattoo competition.  The two finalists were Kyle Dunbar and Chris May, with Kyle Dunbar ultimately being given the opportunity to compete on “Ink Master” Season 4.

In Search Of America’s Most Incredible Food Creations

 

New York, NY, October 2, 2013 – As Spike TV furthers its mission to target a broader audience, the network has greenlit its first-ever food-related series.  America is hungry for the next great food sensation and superstar executive chef Josh Capon eats his way across the country to find the best “Frankenfood,” revolutionary creations that mix outrageous and unexpected ingredients in delicious and unique flavors.

Each episode of “Frankenfood” features local amateur food innovators competing head-to-head in order to get their unexpected food concoctions onto the menu of a popular local restaurant, win a $10,000 cash grand prize and possibly create the next big food craze.  Viewers will be taken back into the kitchen with these budding culinary artists to see how they whip up their inventive food combinations and find out the inspiration behind these dishes. Ranging from old family recipes to hangover remedies, “Frankenfood” will bring to light some of the most mouth-watering and sometimes stomach churning combinations ever conceived.    It’s up to Capon, series judge and Cheesesteak impresario Tony Luke Jr. along with a rotating panel of culinary experts serving as judges to decide which creative and often outlandish dish earns a spot on the menu.

Spike TV has ordered 10 half-hour episodes of “Frankenfood.”  The series is produced by Sharp Entertainment  with Bob Larson and Matt Sharp serving as executive producers and goes into production Fall 2013 and will premiere in Spring 2014.

From there, he went on to work for David Burke at the Park Avenue Café, where he was offered an exchange opportunity to work in Europe.

Capon is also a three-time champion of Rachael Ray’s annual Burger Bash competition.
