Last season on Whisker Wars, we met Myk O’Connor, who started out in the world of competitive bearding after a friend pointed out that he had a killer beard. More or less on a whim, he went to the World Championship competition in Alaska and ended up competing. He was hooked. Despite his light-hearted entrance into the sport, bearding has had a serious impact on his life. Not only is he a card-carrying member of the Gotham City Beard Alliance, but he met his fiancee and beard coach Karolina at a competition. Yep, under the Alaska sun, he fell in love with both the sport and the girl and moved across the country to pursue both.
He’s a loyal member of Beard Team USA, but a big fan of the Austin Hair Facial Club and their mission to grow the biggest beards while having the most fun. Myk is a beardsmen with balance, but can he maintain that balance as an up-and-comer on the bearding circuit if he’s forced to chase champions like Jack Passion?
Tune in to the second season of Whisker Wars (11/23 at 10/9c) to see if Myk can finally win big in the beard circuit.
Whisker Wars returns to IFC on Friday, November 23rd at 10/9c.
