Chaz Vance from "Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge" is one of the contestants on the Syfy reality competition series. He is a special effects and entertainment designer. He says, "It's not a make or break thing for me right now. I already run my own shop. But I want to win this competition anyways."

Chaz Vance lives in West Falls, New York, but grew up on a farm in Collins, New York, where he had the opportunity to use equipment other kids his age weren't allowed to touch. He got his start creating puppets with various materials around the age of nine. Chaz has a strong educational background in arts and technology and holds a Bachelor of Science focused in Entertainment Design. Chaz considers his strengths to be both on the mechanical and technological side, as well as the artistic and creative side of design. He's least experienced in foam fabrication, but feels it may come naturally.

Chaz owns Technically Magic Effects, a special effects studio in West Falls. His girlfriend owns an art supply store called MUSEjar in East Aurora where he teaches sculpture. Chaz has tremendous respect for The Henson Company. At a young age, he made his mother rent "Labyrinth" for him constantly and was always a fan of The Muppets.

Chaz feels his skills are diverse enough to excel in the challenges and he prides himself on his ability to "let things go," counter to the artists who sometimes get too attached to their work. He admits people who are especially sensitive can be offended by his unsolicited remarks. Within a team, Chaz prefers to be a middleman who both gives and receives orders. He believes that CGI and practical effects should be able to work hand-in-hand, and feels his practical effects talents make him a big fish in a small pond. His parents are incredibly supportive and he hopes to make them proud in the competition.
