As HGTV’s “Flip of Flop” gets renewed for a seventh season, its spinoff also received some good news this week.

The TV network also renewed “Flip or Flop Vegas” earlier this week, extending it for a second season. A report from The Wrap also noted that the show did not have the same amount of viewership as the original “Flip or Flop” show. Despite this, HGTV wanted another season of the show hosted by Bristol and Aubrey Marunde.

Furthermore, the report also mentioned that Scripps cable channel is also looking to do four more “Flip or Flop” spinoffs.

“Bristol and Aubrey have clearly resonated with fans of house flipping,” shared John Feld, senior vice president of programming for HGTV, DIY Network and Great American Country. “When you blend the Marundes’ business savvy and fun chemistry with an electric city like Las Vegas, you’ve got a winner,” he added.

Meanwhile, Multichannel reported that the show was able to attract 12.5 million viewers since it debuted in April. This may pale in comparison to the original show but is good enough for them to earn an extension.

In other “Flip or Flop” news, host Tarek El Moussa recently confessed he is open to appearing in reality dating show “The Bachelor.” In an interview with E! News, the 35-year-old cancer survivor said that he was not dating “anyone specifically” or “exclusively.”

“I’ve really never been single before, believe it or not,” shared Tarek. “It’s a whole new life and I am having a lot of fun. I’m just a free spirit, I’m happy, I love going on dates, I like meeting girls,” he added. When asked if he was open to appearing in “The Bachelor,” he casually replied “Yeah, I would absolutely be open to that… 20 women? No problem.”

Christina El Moussa, on the other hand, recently agreed to sign for a seventh season despite the bitter end to her marriage with Tarek. The 33-year-old blonde was at first reluctant but eventually gave it a go after seeing HGTV’s lucrative offer.

“Flip or Flop Vegas” airs Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on HGTV.
