Evolution will be televised, episode 1

The idea was that they would reflect on their unique journeys and produce something worthwhile that contributed to their development.
Glassware making took place over the course of five hours. Dan Friday won the challenge because of his composition showing technical mastery. Claire Kelly, on the other hand, was the first contestant to be disqualified from the competition because the jury felt her work was too straightforward.
Bottoms Up Episode 2
For the second challenge, contestants had to create six glassware appropriate for the beverages they were given. Some of the drinks that contestants had to design glasses for were champagne, mojito, Irish coffee, and milkshake. Veronica Saye, a distinguished guest and cocktail champion, judged them.
The Blown Away contestants were given four hours to complete their artwork. Minhi won the competition with her delicate yet imaginative champagne glasses. However, Rob was sent home for his imperfect execution.
Episode 3: The year of the glass in 2022
The United Nations declared 2022 the “Year of Glass” and world-renowned sculptor Chris Clarke joined the contestants and expert jury.

Not only did Grace impress the judges with her original ASMR piece, she also won a residency at Pilchuck Glass School. Brenna was nevertheless disqualified as her design was similar to that of glass artist Lino Tagliapetra.
The Bigger the Better (eps. 5)
Making it big was the key to this episode’s challenge. Briony Douglas, a visual artist, was a guest judge in the competition. Contestants had to choose from a variety of trifles, including chess pieces, caramel popcorn, and olives. Then the students had to make life-size replicas of it out of glass for their submission.

Out of this world, episode eight
dr Marianne Mader, a space scientist, joined the Blown Away competitors as a guest judge. The vastness, beauty and wonder of outer space should be the inspiration for the participants’ very own space shuttle. The participants had four hours to do this.

Season 2 Champion Elliot Walker served as guest reviewer for the final challenge before the finale in Episode 9 of Nothing To Fear But Fear Itself. Participants had to create artworks motivated by their worst fear. The three finalists had five hours, two assistants and a task to complete.
