Jeff Lewis is crazy good

On the TV show, Flipping Out, Jeff Lewis is a houseflipper extraordinaire. He's very good at managing to turn homes from meh to marvelous in order to sell them and make a tidy profit. The show is a fun, vicarious look at someone in the beautiful world known as the interior design industry.

But, there's also a lot of ugliness that goes on and most of it is attributed to Lewis himself. He comes across as egomaniacal, a selfish bastard, a pain in the ass to work for, a ridiculous perfectionist, and not very personable (probably due to a case of a non-diagnosed form Asberger's Syndrome).

And that's what makes it fun to watch.

True, he might ham it up for the cameras, but there you have to give credit to someone who doesn't care about being ugly (figuretively) in front of millions of people, ready for them to judge every action the person does. Who can do that and not care about the outcome? Apparently, him.

And, for that, I think he's crazy good.

Did you catch the last episode of the season? I think Jeff admitted to wearing a toupe... which would explain why his hair looks exactly the same in every episode.

He's talking about wanting to have a kid, and asked Jenny if she'd be his surrogate. He said something along the lines... the kid will come out with curly hair, or wearing a wig...

We all know Jenny's got the crazy curls... so....

Just thought I'd share.

I watch the shit out of this show...it's such a guilty pleasure. I almost think of it as doing "gay homework".

Whoa - and is that true about Jeff's hair? It would make sense.

PS - I LOVE Jenny!
