Flipping Out star Jeff Lewis was born March 24, 1970, in Orange County, California. Known for his speedy home renovations (as well as his obsessive compulsive personality disorder), the reality star first invaded the airwaves with his hit Bravo show in 2007.
Prior to being on television, Lewis attended the University of Southern California and Chapman University. He started working for a real estate agent shortly after graduating from college, and in 1999 he began flipping houses for a living.
As Lewis faced a struggling housing market in 2009, he also experienced heartbreak and betrayal (as seen on the third season of Flipping Out). Though the Bravo star once worked alongside his ex Ryan Brown, the two ended their professional relationship after Brown used Lewis’ name to promote his own business ventures on Google.
Heartbreak aside, Lewis forged ahead and launched a line of home furnishings on QVC. The fourth season of his reality show premiered in August 2010.
