Watch Flip or Flop


Flip or Flop is a television show that appears on HGTV. The husband and wife duo of Christina and Tarek El Moussa renovate houses together. Though the stress is high at times, Tarek has a gentle demeanor and tends to flip out a bit more than some other renovation show rivals. He doesn't scream at the staff or berate them; rather he tends to freak out a bit.

Some of the glamour of the show is that the couple uses an investor, who puts ample amounts of pressure on them to sell quickly. They often overextend themselves financially and it shows the entire process from beginning to end. From the courthouse stairs at the auction to the sale of the home, it is all documented on this pleasant journey with this super couple.

They make the flip and get rich, house renovation market, seem possible for anyone. It is common for them to bring their daughter, three year old, Taylor, along on the set. There was only one season of this show that ran from April 16, 2013 till May 28, 2013. Unfortunately, Tarek found out that he had thyroid cancer in October of 2013 and was unable to film anymore episodes. The show status is on hold until his health is in better condition.
