S08.E01: What the Flip! 2015.07.01

Jeff intensely focuses on expanding his business after firing employees in the Season 8 opener. He soon discovers that his remaining staffers can't handle all the delegated work, leading to a titanic meltdown.

 

 

 

So glad he's back!  I never tire of Jeffy.  Bring on Season eight!!

Did we ever find out what happened to Lupe, the housekeeper? She disappeared, never to be heard from again. I remember Jenni saying a year or so back that they had no idea what happened to her. And I didn't see Andrew in the premiere. I assume he was fired.

 

I only watched a bit of the show. Jeff's team did look like complete idiots in front of Chaz Dean. How can you present information about the space and its furnishings if you can't even label them properly?

 

I was just looking at Jenni's instagram and she has the cutest little girl! She looks like a doll.

I cringed along with Jeff at that meeting with Chaz. I've been watching from Day 1 so I kind of know what presses Jeffs buttons. Joe is already annoying. I'm surprised he didn't fire him.

I miss Andrew already.

If they are going to keep incompetent staff around for "humor" then I prefer Andrew. He was at least in on the joke. Joe just seems like a child who has no clue how to have a job.

Joe is too pretty for Jeff to let go. That's what you get when you hire for looks.

Jeff really hated that Chaz' non-Hollywood-looking assistant (who shall remain nameless because these cute twits thought she was not worth their notice) took him and his Team of Pretties down.

Happy to see more real estate porn and less animals and Zoila.

Interesting that Gage is now on board with selling Grammercy and getting back into the flipping business, it did make me wonder if his resistance to it last season was just a storyline.

I don't like Joe but I don't miss Andrew and his whinyass voice.

Zoila and Gage seem to be in a better place, yes she still fights with him but it seems more good natured than before and not dripping with contempt and vitriol like in the past.

I wonder how long the dj has been with his girlfriend because he clearly didn't think she should have much of a say in the space until she got pissed.

I laughed at how Joe said that he sometimes makes mistakes and forgets to do things as Jeff's assistant. Oy. Where does Jeff find these employees?

I was pretty bothered by the fact that no one even knew her name. I'm sure people in the office have been corresponding with her since the project began.  I worked as an assistant many moons ago and it used to grate my nerves when people would act as if I was a persona non-grata. They'd butcher my name, conveniently forget to copy me on emails, etc. I'm glad Chaz's assistant was able to to make Jeff's team look as unprepared as they were.

I can't imagine it would THAT hard for Jeff to find someone more competent than Joe! It seems he's fucked up more than one, and the Chaz fiasco was embarrassing.  Maybe Jeff should have Chaz find his next assistant! He seems to have a knack for finding good quality help.  

 

Hmm...they never even addressed what happened to Andrew.  Maybe next time Jeff is on WWHL Andy will ask for us.  I had initially liked Andrew, but sometimes his sense of humor was a little bit too raunchy, and he was always acting so damn thirsty.  I prefer him not so over the top.

I'm SO happy that this show is back! "Flipping Out" is honestly one of my most favorite shows, especially on Bravo.

 

I wondered what happened to Andrew, too. Even though Jeff still kept him around after all of his lies had come to light last season, I wonder if he was truly a famewhore through and through and Jeff felt he had to finally cut him lose.  I don't understand why they keep Joe around, either, if he's such a fuckup. Again, my theory is that he is also a famewhore and Jeff keeps him around for show hijinks; I feel like he's most likely a producer-driven "character."

 

Does anyone think Zoila really does that much housekeeping anymore?  I know Jeff has commented that he loves her like a mother-figure, so that may be one reason why she's still around, but I feel like the fact that she's still there is also very much producer-driven.  Afterall, fans do love her and she's not quite a spring chicken, so I'm sure her body doesn't allow her to do as much physical work for lengthy periods of time.  I wonder if she will ever truly retire and if it will be anytime soon like the previews sort of hint at.  For all of the grief he gives her (some of which I also think is for the cameras), I think Jeff would feel like a part of him is missing once Zoila decides to retire and return to her family.

 

Is Jenni pregnant again?  In some of her TH's, she looks like she has a little belly, but I don't know if it's just her clothing puffing out a bit from the way she is sitting, a bad camera angle, or she didn't lose all of the weight from her first baby.  I hate to be that person to ask that, especially if she isn't, but just curious.

I think I am remembering right, during the season that he went to NY to do a House Beautiful project, that Jeffrey said his goal with Zoila was to have her eventually become the person who took care of a baby for him. I think they discussed it. It was a heartwarming time when he was expressing his feelings towards Zoila. That yes, at times she annoyed the hell out of him, but that he could never really see her not being a part of his life. And that she was someone that he would want to do something that was important to him, help with the baby.

Joe is very pretty and I'm sure that's why Jeff is keeping him.

 

Well, needless to say, that is a very shitty way to run your business, and Jeff has no reason to flip out on anyone except himself when things like what happened at Chaz's meeting happens.

why does Chaz keep giving business to Jeff? maybe the exposure from the show is a factor.

Andrew: good riddance.

Happy to see more real estate porn and less animals and Zoila.

agree about less animals and less Zoila.

Sooo glad they are back! Loved seeing more real estate too!

Seems like Gage got the stick surgically removed, as I actually saw him smile and joke around! Looking forward to a lighter season, as the last one got too tense with Gage vs Zoila.

If anyone is interested, there is a mini marathon of a previous season of Flipping Out. I think it is from when he was originally flipping houses before he moved on to doing rehabs for people. I am kicking myself for not watching this show from the very beginning so I am always looking for the first seasons. 

 

I read that article linked and agree, the show had gone a little too dark. I think all of them have issues, work, personal, etc, but I think they focused too much on the minutia, instead of how really down deep, this crew is tight with each other. That's what I want to see. Not therapy sessions. Well, a little can be ok, but not be the whole season angle. I love it when everyone is just being what they are and the ridiculousness that happens.

 

I do wonder what happened to Andy. I had a soft spot for him and thought he fit in well. I hope all is well with him. I love the, not sure I want to say misfits, but maybe the randomness, that surrounds Jeffrey in his life. 

 

eta oops forgot to add when the mini marathon is going to air. Wednesday starting at 8:27am for six episodes. Yay! a wonky time to mess with dvr scheduling! [said no one] I hate when network people do that! But fortunately I have nothing else to tape then. [tape is from the vcr days in case you millenials need to know. It is so hard for me to remember to type dvr instead of tape. Hell dvr is probably out of date lingo also]

I need to work for Jeff Lewis. I have no design experience and terrible decorating taste, but I totally feel him with his organization and OCD tendencies.  I was cringing so hard during the Chaz meeting.

Where is Andrew?! Has Jeff been on WWHL lately?  I would call him to ask him.

Jeff will be on WWHL tonight and I hope we find out what happened to Andrew.
