'Work of Art: The Next Great Artist'By tapping into a true artist who risked his life for his expression, Young impressed the judges on 'Work of Art: The Next Great Artist' (Wed., 9PM ET on Bravo). His piece featured black bundles of newspapers with the headline "Where is Ai Weiwei?"

"Ai Weiwei is a very internationally recognized living artist who's based in China," Young said of his inspiration. "And because of his outspokenness, he was arrested and he's basically disappeared since then."

While the other contestants looked on in clear envy, Young won another challenge, this time netting a cool $20,000 and the privilege of having his art displayed in the New York Times building. For Bayete, it was the end of the road.
