Flipping Out's Jeff Lewis is known for his business savvy and hard-hitting attitude, but there’s no doubt that there’s a jokester underneath that take-no-nonsense exterior. Case in point? When he revealed his nickname for partner, Gage.
"I call him ‘Kris Jenner,’ because he’s kind of the Kris Jenner behind this whole machine,” Jeff tells AdWeek, referring to the Keeping Up With the Kardiashians matriarch responsible for the family’s super stardom and success. “Gage is very bright, very advanced beyond his [30 years], very mature.”
The couple is currently expecting a baby via surrogate — something Jeff calls “crazy,” but is confident he can handle. “I clean up messes all day long. One more won’t change anything,” he says.
As for whether the Kardashian momager will be in attendance at the baby shower? We have a feeling, not so much. “We recently stole one of her assistants — and I don’t think she’s happy,” Jeff says. No regrets, though! “But he is so good. I mean, the way she’s training those guys over there! If I have to stand outside Jenner Communications and make offers on the spot, I will.”
Flipping Out premieres Wednesday, July 1 at 9/8c. Catch a first look at what to expect on the upcoming season here.
