Welcome to Austin, Texas where the women are strong and the beards grow long and the beer is always Lone Star. Okay, that may not be true for all of Austin (although in our experience, it is), but it certainly is true within the confines of the Austin Facial Hair Club. In our upcoming reality show, “Whisker Wars” you’ll get to know these facial hair connoisseurs as they prepare themselves for the Olympics of bearding. That’s right, the Olympics of bearding. Scoff if you must, but when “Whisker Wars” hits the air on August 5th at 11 p.m. ET, you’ll come to see that competitive facial hair growing is a sport that is rife with drama, controversy, and intrigue to best even the 1980s Olympics. The Austin Facial Hair Club is ready to churn out winners in ever category at the World Championships in Norway. As president of the Austin Facial Hair Club and arch rival to Jack Passion, Bryan Nelson is the club’s Bela Karolyi, albeit with a much much better beard. He has motivated the Austin squad to prepare for nothing but victory. They grow ’em tough in Texas. Watch this clip and see for yourself.
“Whisker Wars” premieres on IFC on August 5th at 11 p.m. ET/10 p.m. CT
