Basic info and series concept
Flip or Flop is an HGTV documentary television series that`s been on the air since April 16, 2013. It is currently in its fifth season, which premiered on June 9th, 2016.
The series follows Tarek and Christina El Moussa, a married couple who worked as real estate agents prior to the real estate market crash in 2008. After the market has steeply declined, they used their real estate expertise to go into the lucrative business of house flipping – buying a run-down property, or one in need of renovation, investing in its rehabilitation and then reselling it for a profit. The couple runs The El Moussa Agency, a thriving real-estate agency specializing in investment houses. As of today the couple has gone through hundreds of homes, and holds real estate investment workshops across North America. The series also focuses on family life of Tarek and Christina and their two children.
Current season and ratings
Flip or Flop has been criticized for being far from reality and overdramatic, and dangerous in that it might misdirect some people`s unrealistic expectations of easy money in the house flipping business. Tarek and Christina are always successful in their flips on screen, 100% of the time, and they make no less than $50 000 per transaction. The South California real estate market has seen great days, but it`s taken a serious fall in 2008 and many of the very lucrative transactions just don`t seem very plausible. Despite all the criticism, the series has been extremely successful ratings-wise, averaging 1.7 million viewers per episode and a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic. Flip or Flop is also known for attracting an upscale audience on cable. It is the #1 cable show in its timeslot among the P25-54 and upscale W25-54 demos with a 0.91 L+3 rating in the P25-54 for season four. The fifth season is continuing its triumphant run, having premiered to 2.3 million viewers with a 0.57 demo rating. It seems like the chances of Flip or Flop coming back for a sixth season and inspiring more people to take after their example are very high, but there`s been no word from HGTV on the fate of the series yet.
