Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this although most of the content in this reality series about a colorful Las Vegas house "flipper" and his construction projects is mild, it does contain some strong language (curses like "s--t" are bleeped) and frequent arguments, usually about money. Yansey's real estate company, Goliath, is featured, and there's some gambling.

What's the story?

FLIPPING VEGAS follows expert house flipper Scott Yansey as he buys homes on the cheap, remodels them on a limited budget, and then tries to sell them for a substantial profit. Real estate agent Heather Stone scours through thousands of Las Vegas properties for inexpensive -- and often badly damaged -- homes for Yansey to purchase. With the help of a team of project managers and Yansey's wife, interior designer Amie, they work quickly to convert the properties into livable, fashionable homes. Yansey faces lots of challenges with each project, usually in the form of unexpected damage, construction delays, and costly mistakes. But he must work through the madness and mayhem in order to meet his deadlines and sell the homes fast enough to make a solid profit amidst falling housing prices.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

This series offers a look at the challenges and stresses associated with house flipping. It also underscores the demise of Las Vegas' once-lucrative real estate market by showing how Yansey is trying to take advantage of it by gambling on cheap flips.

Most of the show is dedicated to showing the process by which homes are repaired and decorated for resale. But Yansey is definitely a colorful personality in his own right, especially when things end up costing more than he bargained for. As a result, the show offers some mild entertainment -- and some content (swearing, yelling, etc.) that's not appropriate for the youngest viewers.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about why real estate-themed shows seem to be so popular. Are they intended simply to entertain, or do you think viewers are expected to learn from them?

  • There's a lot of information in the media about the difficult housing market, foreclosures, and other related themes. What does it all mean? When will it get better? Parents: How do you talk to your kids about some of these issues?

Flipping Vegas

Too staged and too much bad acting. Scott Yancy curses too much and complains a lot. He is very mean to the people who work for him and never approves of his wife.
What other families should know
Too much swearing
