Episode Info:       There is a love-hate relationship between reality shows and their viewers.  We all love to hate them and we all keep tuning back in.  Inkmaster is just one of those relationships.  Every season we have favorites and we have favorites we also call villains.  Season 6 has a full cast of personalities but early on it was obvious that St. Marq had surpassed the rest to take that narcissistic villain title.  If you haven't figured it out yet I love to cheer for the bad guy.  I want to see someone stir the pot and keep the pressure on the other contestants.  If the show doesn't have that element it will almost always fall flat.
