Flipping the Block Premieres This Sunday!

The wait is finally over: HGTV’s all-new series Flipping the Block premieres this Sunday, July 20 at 9/8c. Tune in to meet the 4 teams you’ll come to know and love (trust me!) and hang out with HGTV faves like judge Scott McGillivray, host Josh Temple and digital reporter David Bromstad.

Flipping the Block Premiere

Scott McGillivray, Josh Temple and David Bromstad on Set

This all-new competition series will follow 4 duos as they renovate and decorate 4 identical condos — all while living in the construction dust! Sound exciting? Oh, just wait until you see this:

Once the (crazy bad!) condos have been totally transformed, they’ll be sold at a live auction to the highest bidders. The team with the highest sale price will take home the ultimate prize: $50,000 dollars, plus, of course, serious bragging rights.

So, will you be watching? Tune in this Sunday, July 20, at 9/8c.

  2. I think Flipping the Block will be fun to watch. I like seeing people put their designs into practice. I love picking up creative ideas to use in my own decorating. Four condos, four different teams = great creativity and fun.

  3. How do we enter to have our block redone? I live in a rural country county in Northern Callifornia (Humboldt) the neighborhood seriously needs some TLC, homes here are around 50 years old and could use some help. There's a lot of potential, but without help I don't think anything will happen. Maybe consider us for your next show. Love it!

  4. If this flies, the producers need to create a show called: "Flipping the Street" First they need to vacate an entire city street (not impossible with their liberal money in this economy to back them) a street that has been all muddled architecturally — you know the ones– the homes with aluminum siding jumping the window casings and sagging front porches that were Screened in for Aunt Betty Sue — while she aged there in a front porch swing with a nicotine stain between her fingers. Leaking basements, Lead paint and asbestos siding. Insulbrick was always one of my favorites. And we can't forget all the brick homes that need to be repointed. Do the next generations of humans even know what "repointed" and "home maintenance" is? Blighted streets full of pot holes that the City's can't seem to afford to fix — even though the City still collects TAXES. Weeds for landscaping. We can't forget those nasty weeds growing out of the cracks and gutters. How about all those stinky Ailanthus trees that seem to crop up at freeway overpasses, can we rid ourselves of them too. Do what private individuals with money can do, that HUD cannot. Transformation, rehab, gutting, street lighting, paving, reworking and the un-muddling of 50 to 100 year old architecture. The un-rooting of Ailanthus Trees everywhere! And if these rehabbed Streets can't be sold to worthy homeowners that can maintain them — the Producers can always sell them to the government and make them HUD housing — so they can get beat to heck all over again and if the government needs to find "worthy" home owners they can always conger them up through Freddie Mack and Fannie Mae so we can have another housing meltdown. All this sounds sort of sounds like my street, not a gated community, but certainly not what it used to be either. Maybe I should cut down my 100 year old Sugar Maple and plant an Ailanthus tree — would this qualify as a tax credit under our current regime?
