Survivor's Russell Hantz is back!
http://www.aetv.com/...-hantz-17206990

SERIES PREMIERES MONDAY APRIL 9 AT 10PM ET/PT

A&E premieres a new original real-life series featuring Russell Hantz of "Survivor" as he enters the high-stakes world of house flipping in the volatile Houston real-estate market. "Flipped Off" premieres Monday, April 9 at 10PM ET/PT on A&E.

Flipping homes has never been an easy business, and since the collapse of the housing market it's never been more dangerous. Time is the new enemy as flippers race to rehabilitate properties before renovation costs climb too high and market prices fall too low. This is the type of risk that attracts Russell Hantz, the Master Manipulator from three seasons of "Survivor," where bold moves can make or break you, and the dollar bill is the bottom line.

Throwing down cold hard cash on a house that you just viewed takes brains, intuition and a whole lot of guts. However, Hantz isn't working alone. Determined to be one of the biggest house flippers in Houston, he's bringing along his big brother, Shawn, as his project manager as well as the beautiful and savvy real estate agent, Kristen. The brothers butt heads more than a pair of rams in a staring contest but giving them some semblance of balance is Kristen, who isn't afraid to slap some sense into the Hantz brothers when their egos get in the way of making money.

Just caught an episode of this tonight where Russell pushes a cop and acts like a total ass the whole episode. Don't know him from Survivor so not sure how famous he really is to the general public. He seems to think he's a big deal. He comes across more like a big d..k.

Neither brother has any design aesthetic nor does either seem to have any sense. This ranks up there with those 2 clods from the Boston show imo.

What the hell....happened to catch Flipping Boston and saw a promo for this show. I thought that was the little midget Russell. I have my DVR set to tape the west coast airing. How is he qualified to flip houses? hell I think I'd rather watch Vanilla Ice remodel homes..yet I am DVRing it.

Much of it looks staged, like the drag race with Boo Bernis from Fiji, and Russell not following the neighborhood code. But then it is Russell so he just could be that stupid.

I think the rat in episode one was staged white rats are extremely uncommon in the wild they only occur as albino's.

I honestly avoid A&E when this show is on, lest I be counted as a viewer in the Nielsen's. They still do that? However they count viewership nowadays. The sooner this little troll goes away, the better. Of course that particular strategy hasn't worked on the Kardashians so far, but you can't blame them on me!

I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I am liking this show. Although according to the posts I may be the only one!(watching OR enjoying) I'm fascinated by the relationship between the two brothers.

Has this show been cancelled? It hasn't been on for few weeks. I agree it felt very staged and the episodes seemed out of order? Russel was spilting up with his wife, then they were a happy family in large house, then he is seen having his kids over for a visit in a small house? My husband finds the show amusing so I was wondering if it was still on.
