    Ok so I normally don't post threads about "hotties". But, I've been slightly obsessed with "Flipping Out" on Bravo this year. Jeff and Ryan (and even Chris to some extent) are exceptionally hot. Add to it their incredible talent to make some beautiful homes and I'm sold. ha ha!! It's too bad Jeff's attitude drives me insane, but Ryan is nice. icon_smile.gif

    Who else can't get enough of this show and/or Jeff and Ryan?

    Ooh! Ooh! Pick me!

    What is it about a psychotic, insensitive OCD guy that gets me going? I really don't understand my attraction to Jeff, but Ryan is another story. Not to mention, Dale and Chloe are adorable too!

    So far, it's much better than Project Runway. I think it's hilarious and outrageous at the same time. I would've loved to work for him (Jeff) until the camera thing. That's just too much.

    Anyways, I think Chris is the cutest...mainly because he's the only one that hasn't had work done. Plastic surgery is quite obvious to me and I find it hard to be attracted to someone that's gone under the knife by choice. If it wasn't for that, Ryan would be the cutest. He's cute, strong-willed but much sweeter by comparison, and a dad. I love that!

    The first season was novel, but this one's running out of steam. Yet I'm still compelled to watch, dammit!

    Can't stand Jeff, but Ryan is adorable.

    Is it just me, or does Jenni remind anyone of Elaine's character from Seinfeld?

    I watch it for the antics Jeff pulls...but at the same time for his amazing ability to flip homes.

    I definitely would want him and Ryan to be in charge of flipping any property I owned.

    Do any of you think you could deal with Jeff's demands as his assistant?

    The absurdity of it all.........

    I think that I've spent too much time in L.A. (well, being born and raised) to be able to recognize most plastic surgery... I can pick out the fake tits and joan rivers, but beyond that I'm helpless.

    Jeff represents in my opinion, everything wrong with gay men in todays society. He's self centered, arrogant, and narcissistic. While I respect his work and motivation, as a person I think he's pretty vile.

    I mean, we're all vain to some extent, but some things are just better left unsaid; when he was looking for a new assistant, he said something to the extent of, "we're vain; we hire the first pretty person who walks in the door".

    Perhaps he should have rephrased person for "white male". While there's nothing intrinsically flawed with this life outlook and mentality, I find it a rather one-dimensional, shallow, and borderline racist.

    No one can fault Jeff, it is his company and he can hire and fire whoever he wants, on any basis he wants, but it's pretty obvious that he surrounds himself with and is uncomfortable around people who don't look like him, in exception for the maid. icon_rolleyes.gif

    And no, I don't find Jeff or his partner remotely attractive. Both have a somewhat effeminate quality about them that's a turnoff in my opinion.

    I had a few dates with Jeff back in 2001. He seems very different on the show. Don't know what he's like in real life these days.

    The finished product is pretty amazing....it's fun to see the houses after he's done. But other than that, his antics kind of distract from the show. Just my .02. And, given it is "reality" television, I wonder if it's an accurate portrayal of him...if he vamps it up for the camera but tones it down in real life.

    Well, they do live in LA. Also, I would venture to guess that at least 80% of the people on this site are the same way. Just rephrase it to, "we're vain; we only talk to the pretty people."

    For the poster asking for pictures, here ya go:

    Ryan is on the left, then Jeff.

    I love to watch this show. Jeff is so funny, evil and a bit sick at times. He is someone you love to hate.

    I agree that Jenni could be Elaine's twin.

    Why did Ryan change his hair. He was much hotter in season 1.

    I can't wait to see the reunion episode next week.

    I love this show. Jeff is so not hot though. Collagen lips aren't attractive, especially on guys. Ryan however...yum!

    I have watched the show about four times and each time I've thought to myself "who could possibly work for this man? He is such an asshole in so many ways and really has serious mental problems.

    Add to that, even with the opportunity to be on TV, anyone who would put up with the games, OCD and mental gymnastics, is equally troubled.

    Hard to believe, but people this this (and worse) really do exist in LA (I lived near there for 8 years).

    I have watched the show. It is on my TIVO list. I like not the main characters but the way the marginal characters respond to the shenanigans of the main characters....

    As for Jeff being hot... ewww.. I dont think so.

    I don't think there's anyone hot in this show at all. Maybe Zoila or Jenny...

    And for their sense of style... meh it is regurgitated, formulaic and a bit OCD. You know there's a pill for that. :-)

    That's what makes him so compulsively watchable .. the man takes OCD and "perfectionism" to such an extreme. I could never live in a house where my refrigerator had to be staged with 6 containers of non-dairy creamer and 3 jars of martini olives all lined up perfectly.

    I don't think Los Angeles has a monopoly on crazy though -- this is where entertainment is produced so it just seems like there's more of it here.
