Flip or Flop Follow-Up

Tarek and Christina revisit their most intense, interesting and engaging house flips.

Because there's never enough time to tell the whole story in every episode of Flip or Flop, this series is an opportunity to dig deeper into the trials and tribulations of house flipping, and to find out what actually happened behind the scenes of the renovations.

We'll also follow up on houses that remained unsold at the time of production - revealing now what they ended up selling for, and if Tarek and Christina actually made or lost money.

Each half-hour episode encapsulates three stories and adds extra information.

These three stories will feature: a successful flip, a financial flop and a follow-up that ends with Tarek and Christina revisiting one of their house flips, to meet the new homeowners and present them with a housewarming gift.

In the series premiere, "A Risky Partnership": Tarek and Christina go behind the scenes of three early flips, including how they began their partnership with Pete and what really happened on a flip with $6,000 worth of mold damage.
