TEMPERS FLARE AS JEFF LEWIS AND HIS CREW RETURN FOR THE FOURTH SEASON OF BRAVO'S "FLIPPING OUT” PREMIERING ON TUESDAY, AUGUST 10 AT 9PM (ET/PT)
NEW YORK – June 24, 2010 – The fourth season of Bravo's hit docu-series "Flipping Out" returns on Tuesday, August 10 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, with Jeff Lewis, everyone's favorite obsessive-compulsive house-flipper. Throughout the last four years, viewers have watched as Lewis struggled with a downturn economy, some unruly clients and even a few backstabbing friends and employees, but somehow Lewis always finds a way to flip things right side up again.

Last season, Lewis cut back on flipping homes and started focusing on growing his design business, Jeff Lewis Design. With business now booming, Lewis is back to his stressed-out self and when House Beautiful magazine names him the designer for "Kitchen of the Year,” the flip-outs reach an all time high. It's the most high-profile job he's had to date – and it's based in New York, so Lewis drags Jenni Pulos and Zoila Chavez across the country to be there for some much- needed moral support. This season Lewis also expands on his family of disgruntled yet lovable employees. Chavez is Lewis' rock, but this season she is feistier than ever! Pulos has been promoted to Chief Operations Officer – a promotion with no pay increase – and Lewis' bubbly sister-in-law Sara Berkman is back as his full time assistant. Jett Pink, the hot house assistant, is a father now and Trace Lenhoff, the intern a.k.a. "mini-Jeff” is back as a full time employee.
