RISMEDIA, August 10, 2009-The third season of Bravo’s hit series “Flipping Out” returns Tuesday, August 18 with everyone’s favorite obsessive-compulsive house-flipper, Jeff Lewis. The economy has taken its toll on his business, but if anyone can figure out a way to flip things around and go from chaos to clarity, it’s Lewis, one of Los Angeles’ most colorful, creative renovators and real estate speculators.
Lewis makes his living with the help of a group of diverse and often disgruntled employees he counts as friends. These include his incredibly patient assistant Jenni Pulos, who still dreams of making it as an actress, despite seven years at Jeff’s side, his beloved housekeeper Zoila, newly empowered and suddenly more flirtatious and feisty, and his business partner and former boyfriend, Ryan Brown.
With the total collapse of the real estate market, Lewis finds himself in the uncomfortable position of having to take on design clients, while taking orders and being nice to people. This season Lewis will help Zoila date, reluctantly empowers Jenni, while managing the revolving door of colorful characters that staff his office. How does a house flipper, who can no longer “flip,” keep from flipping out?
Season two of “Flipping Out” broke records with five consecutive weeks reaching over one million total viewers and the finale episode setting a series high among adults 18-49 and in total viewers with over one million viewers in those demos.
