The always entertaining Flipping Out returns for a seventh season and follows Jeff Lewis and his loyal assistant, Jenni Pulos, as they work in the booming interior design business for a slate of high-profile -- and sometimes over-the-top -- clients. After what felt like an eternity, Jeff and his partner Gage are finally settled into their newly remodeled Los Angeles home, Gramercy. Jeff Lewis Designs, now focusing more on interior design and remodel than house flipping, is thriving with new business. With a growing paint line and a wide array of prominent clients, including CSI actor George Eads and his wife, Monika, who are undertaking a major remodel of their Hollywood Hills home, Jeff’s time and resources are spread thin. Meanwhile, design assistant Andy is agitated over the hiring of a new assistant, Megan, who is getting more quality time with the boss. Jenni is now seven months pregnant, forcing Jeff to make plans for her impending maternity leave.

With funds running low, and work continuing on Nottingham, Jeff and the team desperately need something to sell. Offers begin to come in for Valley Oak One, but they’re under what Jeff was hoping to get for the property. Meanwhile, Jeff treats his dogs to massages, and takes Ryan and the staff out to lunch. On the job site, Jeff negotiates with his workers, trying to get the best deal, while scolding his contractor for showing up two hours late. Jeff and Ryan then head out to Long Beach to visit Jeff’s father, a real estate developer of a different sort. He and Jeff share the same drive and determination, but differ greatly on what they hope to achieve in their work. Back in Los Angeles, things take a turn for the better when an offer for Valley Oak One is close to Jeff’s asking price. They go back and forth, and five thousand dollars is all that separates him from finishing the deal. After negotiating with his agents, Boni and Carrie, the house is sold, and Jeff and Zoila prepare to move to Ben Lomond.

And when they "stage" his current house to be shown to potential buyers, the true Jeff shines through, in all his savvy and maddening glory. But will the house sell, and will he be able to stretch his bank account to finish his next jobs? Tune in next week to find out!

Valley Oak One, still on the market, has not sold, and Jeff is running out of money. In order to get some cash, he tries to convince Ryan to sell his house to make ends meet. Ryan refuses, until Jeff proposes a bet: whoever sells their house first can move into Nottingham, the multi-million dollar estate that’s undergoing renovation. Meanwhile, because Valley Oak One isn’t selling, Jeff loses faith in his current psychic, and hires a new one to bless Las Palmas, another finished home. At Valley Oak 2, there was a miscommunication, and the landscapers incorrectly cut down a big tree in the yard, sending both Jeff and Ryan into a fit. But not long after, Ryan sells his house and makes plans to move into Nottingham, making Jeff jealous.
