    My youngest daughter LOVES this show. She wants to flip properties when she's older. She thinks I should be doing same as in one episode, a guy with OCD was doing well at it because, he claimed, flipping celebrated OCD and used it as a strength. Thanks for thinking of me Number 2 daughter :)

    Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Remember Jack Nicholson in As Good As It Gets? That type of thing.

    Something about Flipping out that i get hooked on.

    he is a weird bloke, but very successfull....

    He cracked it at his assistant not long ago because the assistant wasnt talking to his dog while driving the dog to the dog massage palor...lol

    He Cries broke every eppisode, but can afford to get his dogs a monthly massage.

    dont get me wrong... i love my pets, but seriously... He takes it to a new level.

    Ive been watching this as well, not a bad show, I think it might have been filmed about 10 years ago!

    I think the rules for PM's over in NZ must be different as well, those PM's really have to do everything!

    Don't forget about the cat who gets acupuncture.

    I couldn't imagine working for him. He's delusional. But the show is entertaining.

    He doesn't live in L.A by any chance?

    Now there is another planet. We are talking PET CEMETARIES with headstones that cost more than a small car.

    I saw a guy at a coffe shop with a chameleon on his shoulder one day. True.

    Apparently it's good for getting chicks, he said.

    The defence rests, your honour.

    oh year... forgot about that.... and last week when putting in furniture before it sold to help people that cant visualise

    around the pool he spent half the episode arranging and rearranging the table and chairs and deciding which lines to run with... have the table line up with the fence, the pool edge, or the fire place, ...

    or the tabel lining up with the pool fence, and the chairs lining up with the pool edge, with the 2 chairs at the ends lining up with the angle of the fire place...

    I quite like the show, but cannot stop looking at those lips. They are just strange looking, and he has to have had them plumped with filler, surely.

    Got me intrigued, will have to watch it.

    Wylie, don't really know what is happening with lips in general, seems everyone wants to look like Angelina Jolie only to end up with revolting fish lips instead.
