Beards are back! On Friday we kicked off an all new season of Thom Beers’ beard-based drama Whisker Wars. The bearding season kicks off with competitors from across the country going beard -to-beard in the Ohio Championships. The event draws circuit heavyweights from across the country, including Aarne Beilefeldt, Myk O’Connor and the Austin Facial Hair Club. Noticeably absent from the contest is former World Champion Jack Passion, who is still reeling from the loss of his title. As Passion has lost his passion for competitive bearding, he contemplates the unthinkable: abandoning his beard career.
Did you miss the action? Don’t worry, you can watch the entire episode in our new site, The Stream Room. Head on over and catch up on the new season of Whisker Wars before a new episode airs Friday at 10/9c.
