No. 3 Scratch On, Scratch Off

Watching Jenni scratch off lottery tickets may be my new favorite thing. Why you ask? Because somehow she manages to make it ridiculously exciting. No wonder Jeff has become addicted to buying lottery tickets. I'm not even convinced that it has to do (so much) with the desire to win big, I think it has more to do with the thrill of hearing Jenni call out how many diamonds she's got on the card so far. Winning ten bucks you might think, meh. But if Jenni tells you that you've won ten dollars, it sounds more like you've won ten thousand dollars.  

No. 2 Forget You

Vocabulary lessons with Zoila are one of my favorite things about Flipping Out. After all of her years with Jeff Lewis, that woman probably knows more curse words than a seasoned sailor. When Jeff goes off about Randy and calls him a "f--- a--" Zoila of course has a field day and starts slinging the phrase around to everyone's delight. Seriously I think JLD would probably explode into confetti composed of paint samples without Zoila's comic relief.

All of you are correct. Jeff should tailor his business to your soap opera needs. Zoila was irreplaceable during her surgery. Jenni is ready to move on. Maybe Gage will get a sister wife in a future episode to keep all of you coming back.

It never ceases to amaze me that people who do these reality shows are so unaware of their own behavior.

Like so many others, I have no fondness for Gage and wonder what his "Q" score is. I sure wish we could have seen what Jeff sees in him. Having once been a 24 year-old, I guess I have to cut him some slack for being young and trying to "act" grown-up. As such, I can sort of understand the way he self-soothes by attempting to ax everyone else in the cast (and in Jeff's life).

It's really disappointing to me that Jeff, being seventeen years older, is not only oblivious, but complicit. But that's what keeps me watching, I guess. I'd love to be your Mom, Jeff.

Well, Yoko (I mean Gage), it looks like you are systematically trying to get rid of anyone who is close or has any influence on Jeff. I have watched Flippin' Out since the first episode, and I watch it mainly to see Jenni and Zoila interact with Jeff. I do not watch it for "Botox Forehead housemate". If he manages to run off Jenni and Zoila, you can forget my watching!

Jeff,

It seems as though Gage has set his sights on everyone in your company. He just doesn't seem like a nice person. Getting rid of the blond of course a no brainer and Trace well that was unexpected but understandable. Now he is after Jenni!! Why??? Who's next, Zoila? I hope he isn't a permanent fixture on the show. If he is, I think I will be changing the channel.

It seems like Gage is on a mission to wipe out everyone who came before him. I think attacking Jeni, Jett, & Zoila is underminding JLD. People like Jeff & Gage are ungrateful & disloyal. Karma happens.

Jenny and Zoila are brilliant!! They are "must haves" to this show. Without them, it would kill me and I have been viewer since day one. They are fabulous and Zoila ALWAYS makes me laugh! Can I borrow her?

Jenny has been so loyal and good to you Jeff, it would be WRONG to fire her. You can't survive w/o her or Zoila.

You are my favorite flipper however getting a paycheck for your Lover or justify Gage's employment wasn't worth changing the dynamic of all the other employees/cast members. What does he bring to the table? I hope Jenni's not next on the block, the chopping block that is. I do agree with you firing the Blonde Bimbo/Sister in law's Sista. There are wonder Designer's that are out there educated, skilled and ready to marry in the creative process of Jeff Lewis Design... What happen to the other house you were in; the name escapes me now? "Valley Oak" maybe? Loved that house...
