I'm glad that we are seeing the guys faces as that makes them individuals who are in a competition not a group of masks. I would not like to be in Hayley's position, as the masks are rather creepy. You wonder if they are really all a bunch of burn victims under those masks. Ouch. Or at least I did, because I watched Third Watch's season final right before watching this and one firefighter got burned all over his face and body.

Ok, back to the masks, I don't think it could keep my attention without the guys' faces, as that and using their names makes them individuals to me. I care about individuals. I really don't care about colors or numbers.
