New TV Show for Derek Hough and Mark Ballas “Excellent Flip”

I’ve been saying for years that Derek has all kinds of irons in the fire on a variety of projects. It seems this is the year where a bunch of them come to light. Tour with Julianne. Check. Write a book. Check. Flip a house with Mark???  Ummm…Check??  Knew he was flipping a house, didn’t know it was going to be a TV Show. Only four episodes, but it should be interesting….from EON:

Instead of dancing a perfect paso doble, champion dancers Derek Hough and Mark Ballas from ABC-TV’s Dancing with the Stars will be kicking up dust on their latest project — a home renovation series on HGTV. Mark & Derek’s Excellent Flip, a four episode series, will follow along as the multi-talented entertainers who recently co-purchased a house in Southern California completely gut and rehab the property before flipping it for profit. Currently slated to premiere on HGTV in early 2015, the series will be produced by Scott Sternberg Productions.

“At the end of the day, this house is a significant investment in more ways than one, so we have to make this flip work. We’re putting our own blood, sweat and money on the line.”

Hough and Ballas are ready to tackle the challenge of a total home renovation and say the finished residence will be a stunning showcase for the property’s amazing mountain views. Each will play an active role on the work site — participating in everything from demolition to décor.

“Mark and I have worked together for years, but flipping a house is uncharted territory for us,” said Derek. “At the end of the day, this house is a significant investment in more ways than one, so we have to make this flip work. We’re putting our own blood, sweat and money on the line.”

Mark added, “When we bought this house Derek and I both had BIG ideas. Since I am not much of a DIY guy, I’m really grateful that HGTV has stepped in to lend some expertise. We have good creative vision within several areas of the rebuild and I am really looking forward to seeing some of these ideas come to fruition. It’s an important summer project for both of us!”

I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

Thanks to VanillaBeanGonzo for the video. Be sure to visit their You Tube Channel if you’d like more Mark Ballas goodies.

Also, She Knows has a cool review up of the entire show. Their favorite feature in Mark’s home was his guitar gallery (pictured above). See why at the link.

This episode will air one last time on the HGTV channel on January 2nd at 6:00pm ET.

Cool home! I love it! I especially love his bedroom which his Mom decorated. Note the picture of she, Mark, and Derek.

I'm a fashion and music fan....and I have always loved dancing too of any kind. Dancing With The Stars seems to have this way of bringing all of those things together. One of my favorite dancing quotes at the moment: "No matter what, nobody can take away the dance you've already had...." ~Gleb Savchenko .

DWTS Mark Ballas And His Home To Be Featured In HGTV’s “Hollywood At Home” (Schedule)

A heads up for Mark Ballas fans! If you haven’t heard yet, Mark’s home will be featured in a new episode of “Hollywood At Home” for the HGTV Channel. This episode will also visit the homes of Andie MacDowell, Natalie Coughlin, Kelly Killoren Bensimon, George Jones, and Carly Patterson. Each segment will show “beautifully shot images of the stars’ homes and a tour given by the celebrities themselves”. During the Emmy’s, a Mark Ballas community at Facebook via Shirley Ballas posted some shots of Mark and his Mom getting ready for the show. I’m not sure if this is Mark’s home, but, you can view him in a bedroom shot here for a sneak preview for a little of what we might see on this episode? There is also a shot of him standing by a Kurt Cobain picture here. Again, I’m not sure if these are shots from Mark’s home or not? Maybe one of you will know?

Below is a TV schedule of when this episode with Mark and his home will air. For more information, visit HGTV.

DWTS Rob Kardashian Poses For New Family 2011 Christmas Card

I admit! Although I’m not a big fan to the Kardashians, I’m a fan to their Christmas cards for fashion and photography reasons. I like Rob too since he’s a cut above the rest. I also think this Card, snapped by photographer Nick Saglimben, is especially exceptional for the way our Season 13 2nd place winner is posed and standing in a direction away from the rest of the family. Click the pictures to see them in a bigger size. What do you think?
