JEFF LEWIS, EVERYONE'S FAVORITE OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE HOUSEFLIPPER, IS BACK ON BRAVO'S "FLIPPING OUT," TUESDAY, JUNE 17 AT 10 PM ET/PT

"My Goal Is To Cut Down My 'Flip Outs' From 15 A Day To A Maximum Of Five," Says Lewis

NEW YORK � May 7, 2008 � The second season of Bravo's popular docu-series "Flipping Out" returns on Tuesday, June 17 at 10 p.m. ET/PT with everyone's favorite obsessive-compulsive house-flipper, Jeff Lewis. It takes a special kind of personality to handle flipping a number of multimillion-dollar houses at one time, but Lewis, one of Los Angeles' most colorful creative renovators and real estate speculators, pulls it off and turns a six-figure profit on every property.

With the soft market teaching flippers new lessons as home sales decline, there's never a dull moment for Lewis and his intriguing cast of characters. Lewis makes his living with the help of a group of diverse and often disgruntled employees he counts as friends. These include an assistant who moonlights doing voiceover work, a house assistant, a housekeeper, and his former "trash man," who has been promoted to house manager. Add to the mix his business partner and former boyfriend, his various therapists and Lewis' visits to a shaman, and it's clear that this intriguing cast of characters lives as one big dysfunctional family.

Like most families, Lewis' extended family has its share of issues, which results in the occasional confrontation and even a firing or two. Aware of his "Flipping Out" tendencies, Lewis is trying to turn over a new leaf, exercise patience and treat his staff with dignity, but each day comes with a new barrage of problems � including dealing with suspicions of his staff, that leads him to install a nanny cam on site. As Jenni says "it's a long process." Lewis also must contend with market fluctuations, since three of his projects have yet to flip, driving him to expand his business and pick up property renovations instead. Lewis is forced to work for others (which he hates), but in his own inimitable style takes on massive multimillion remodeling jobs.

The Staff:

JEFF LEWIS � "Watching season one really opened my eyes and forced me to do a lot of self-reflection. I'm seeing a therapist now, every Wednesday at 10 a.m. and not by court order. It's helping. My goal is to cut down my 'flip outs' from 15 a day to a maximum of five."

JENNI (Executive Assistant) � On Lewis: "He's crazy, but a lot of geniuses are crazy." Jenni is usually seen wide-eyed with disbelief. Ever the optimist, she tries to protect her co-workers from Lewis' rants.

CHRIS (House Manager) � Lewis' former trash man and Jenni's husband has been promoted to House Manager. On his relationship with Lewis: "I think I've been fired five or six times, but I think I'm capable."

CHRIS (House Assistant) � Lewis' new assistant takes a crash course on life with Jeff. Chris has ambitions to become a real estate speculator himself one day and sees his new job as a chance to learn the ropes. It also proves to be a new experience for Lewis, as it marks the first time that he has hired anyone who is interested in his line of work.

ZOILA (Housekeeper) � Zoila proves to be the rock in Lewis' crazy world. Never fazed by his rants, she is there for his every need. Lewis commissions an original abstract portrait for Zoila as a special birthday gift, but not being an art connoisseur, the gift doesn't go over well.

RYAN (former boyfriend and current business partner) - Ryan tries to be the calm one in most situations, but Lewis seems to find something to disagree with him about.

After joining the Bravo line-up in the third quarter of 2006, "Flipping Out" marked double-digit increases for its Tuesday 10 p.m. time period, up 62 percent among adults 18-49 and up 37 percent in total viewers.

"Flipping Out" is produced by Authentic Entertainment, with Lauren Lexton and Tom Rogan serving as executive producers.
