Home improvement, Reality
A&E Network sure is into the "flip" scene. Joining the likes of "Flipping Boston," "Flipping Vegas" and "Flip This House" in documenting how investors buy, renovate and quickly resell real estate is "Flipped Off," which focuses on the house-flipping market in Houston. It stars, of all people, Russell Hantz, a three-time "Survivor" contestant who was tagged as a "master manipulator" on the popular reality series. He'll have to use a different tact to survive this venture, and to help him along the way is his big brother, Shawn, the team's project manager, and Kristen, who lends her expertise as a real estate agent. "I expect to be one of the biggest house flippers in Houston," Hantz says with his usual confidence, "and I am here to bring Houston's economy back on its feet."
