“I’m in Ogden, Utah filming Extreme Makeover: Home Edition! It’s going to be really really cool,” the real estate stud, 37, said on his Instagram Story. “Exciting things going on. We are going to be giving back to an amazing family.”
The memorable show has been off air since 2012. It was made famous by Ty Pennington and his iconic line “MOVE THAT BUS,” when showing less fortunate families their incredible home makeovers.
Tarek’s announcement comes one month after news of his own HGTV series Flipping 101 w/ Tarek El Moussa broke — just two months after his ex Christina Andstead’s show Christina on the Coast premiered on the same channel.
According to the press release, “The 14-episode series will feature Tarek as he mentors real estate novices to help them learn the secrets of a successful flip.” The show is slated to premiere in early 2020.
Tarek took to Instagram to confirm the news writing, “This is one of the biggest announcements of my life!!!” he wrote. “Here is the big news!!!!! I’m so happy to share that my new SOLO show called Flipping 101 With Tarek El Moussa is coming to @HGTV! My show covers how I help novice flippers get through their projects, and I teach them how to turn the best profit!! And … how to come up with killer designs!! The last few years have been extremely difficult on me, and this is a huge accomplishment for me. Without YOU none of this would be my reality, so thank you!!! Thank you @hgtv and all my fans for always supporting and believing in me … I couldn’t have done it without you. #Flipping101 With Tarek El Moussa coming your way early next year.”
Sources say that it is no surprise that the father of two was itching to get more screen time. He was “extremely jealous” after his ex, 36, landed her own gig a source exclusively told In Touch back in July 2018. “He’s anxious about what his future holds while Christina’s career keeps gaining momentum,” the insider added. The former couple are still filming their hit show together in addition to their spinoffs. Looks like Tarek now has the leg up since he now has more jobs than his ex.
