‘Flip or Flop Nashville’ is a reality television series of the United States and airs on the HGTV network. It premiered for the first time on January 18, 2018. This show is a spin-off of the series named ‘Flip or Flop’ by HGTV. The original hosts for “Flip or Flop” were Tarek El Moussa and Christina El Moussa who split in May 2016 but continued to work together for the upcoming season of the show. HGTV later announced the show ‘Flip or Flop Nashville’ on March 1, 2017, and it was expanded to Nashville, Tennessee. It is one of the franchises of the show while the show is filmed in different parts of the United States with different couples in several other installments.
Jonathan Koch, Ryann Lauckner, Steven Micheals, James Macnab, and Lisa Christy are the executive producers of the show. Asylum Entertainment is the production company handling the show. Home and Garden Television (HGTV) serves as the distributor of the show.
The show is part of a larger franchise which includes other ‘Flip or Flop’ titles like ‘Flip or Flop Atlanta‘, ‘Flip or Flop Vegas‘, ‘Flip or Flop Fort Worth’, ‘Flip or Flop Chicago’, and ‘Flip or Flop Follow Up’. Of these, all the shows follow a similar format, except for the last, which essentially is a revisit to the houses that were flipped in the original ‘Flip or Flop’ series. Speaking about the idea behind the creation of an entire franchise dealing with flipping houses, the general manager of U.S. programming and development for HGTV, Alison Page, said “Because every market is unique, there was an opportunity to highlight what works in various regions by featuring successful people in different locations who had mastered the art of flipping in their town”. The popularity of ‘Flip or Flop Nashville’ proves her point.
Flip or Flop Nashville Cast: Who is in it?
The cast of ‘Flip or Flop Nashville’ involves DeRon Jenkins and Page Turner who are the hosts and main members of the show. The pair work together flipping houses, bringing their own expertise to the table. Although they were a couple once, their romantic relationship did not work out. What does work out form them, however, is their partnership which they both profit from. Page is a real estate broker and a vision building strategist. DeRon, for his part, came to the business in a non-traditional way. He started off as an NFL player and brought the qualities of organization, dedication, teamwork, and time management to the art of housebuilding. For Jenkins, his travels down this path started in 2003, when he bought and renovated a house for himself. He then did the same for 15 to 20 other houses and eventually created DY Construction. In 2005, he expanded and got his contractor’s license. Jenkins believes that his career grew along with Nashville’s expansion itself. Both Jenkins and Page had experience in the field before HGTV approached them to do some flipping on television.
Hopefully, in the upcoming season, we will see this couple, who share a humorous but beneficial partnership, work more in unison, efficiently flipping houses.
