Flipping Vegas is an American reality television series on A&E in the United States. The series premiered on June 18, 2011, and ran through September 2014. It features Scott Yancey and his wife Amie Yancey with realtors from their brokerage Goliath Company as they buy, fix and flip houses in Las Vegas, Nevada. Originally airing on Saturday mornings, A&E moved the show to Saturday evenings at the beginning of Season three. The show was moved back to Saturday afternoons for the final eight episodes. FYI and A&E split up Season 3's 23 episodes to make Seasons 4 and 5 on FYI. A&E lists it as only 3 Seasons.
After the success of Flipping Vegas, similar shows from other cities such as Flipping Boston and Flipping Miami premiered in 2012 and 2013.
Scott Yancey and his wife, interior designer Amie Yancey, purchase low-priced houses in the Las Vegas Valley through their real estate brokerage, Goliath Company. The houses are then renovated with a low budget and a quick schedule in order to be sold as soon as possible, a process known as flipping.
Many of the houses featured on the series are presented as having been vandalized or unkept by the previous tenants, and thus are in need of clean-up or expensive repairs. Scott desires to spend as little money as possible on each house to achieve a maximum profit. However, Amie is passionate about her design choices and frequently makes expensive purchases on upgrades that are not budgeted, and often does so without informing Scott, which upsets him. Scott usually does not agree with Amie's belief that such upgrades help to sell a house.
In some episodes, Scott has a project manager oversee renovations for him. Because of various types of delays, workers typically struggle to get each house complete in time for an open house event, during which one of Scott's real estate agents gives tours of the property to potential buyers. Throughout each episode, Scott, Amie, and others speak to the viewer through interview clips to provide information and opinions about each other and about the property featured in that episode.

Regarding the show's origin, Scott Yancey said: "I'm from the Hollywood area originally, and I was talking with some buddies who are in the industry. I was telling them how I had to pull my Glock out on some homeless guys who came at me with needles in one of the houses that was all boarded up. They're like, 'Man, you need your own reality show. We'll make it like a commercial for your website or something.' So I paid their expenses, and they gave it to another friend of ours, who gave it to a guy who worked at Lionsgate."
The series filmed its pilot in 2009, under the working title of Last House Standing. The second season concluded filming in April 2012. As of November 2013, the show was filming its fifth season. Approximately 120 to 140 hours of footage was shot for each episode, which was then edited down to 43 minutes. Scott Yancey said, "The houses that are the worst to buy are the ones we save for TV because we know there's a great storyline with it".
Regarding the biggest misconception that viewers may have about the show, Scott Yancey said, "What the people see is us stressed in a house on an episode. What they don't see is us doing five others at the same time. [...] The TV show usually edits in the drama. They don't see that an hour from now, we're gonna be holding hands walking our dog somewhere. They edit it in a way that's obviously going to be most entertaining. They don't ever show me say 'thank you, good job' to somebody or show us going to a restaurant at night or in the summer on a beach." Amie Yancey said, "The main thing is that in TV land, they speed everything up. They [the viewers] think, 'Oh, wow, it's a breeze. They come in, and it's done.' It takes a long time to put them together, to pick out the fit and finish and work on the quality. They only see a glimpse of it."
Season 3 was split into Seasons 4 and 5 on FYI.

|2||2||"Flood House"||June 18, 2011|
|Without seeing it first, Scott purchases a house with remediated floor damage in a guard-gated community for $225,000, six times the amount he usually pays for a house. Scott and his real estate agent, Heather Stone, tour the house and are surprised to find that the flood damage is worse than they initially believed, as much of the drywall has been removed. Scott initially only plans to spend $20,000 on renovations, but discovers that the house is infested with black mold, which is then removed in a lengthy and expensive process. To discuss design ideas, Scott and Amie tour the house with Michelle and Chad from Walker Zanger, the business from which they usually purchase their countertops and flooring. Scott disagrees with Amie's expensive design ideas. Scott hires a new, cheaper contractor named Dino, after Baldemar declines to decrease his price to work on the house. Scott has the various crew members work overtime to get the house finished in time for the open house, but he and Amie are upset to find that Dino's crew failed to correct minor defects throughout the house.

When Scott and Ashley tour the house, he is disappointed to see that it is located near a noisy freeway. They enter and discover the house to be filthy. In the backyard, they find a hot tub full of black water, dog feces, and a doll. Scott hopes to keep renovations at $10,000, and hires a new contractor named Mike. Later, Ashley arrives at the house while Scott is showing it to Amie, who becomes jealous of Ashley's physical appearance. Amie takes Scott outside for a private conversation and questions him on why he always hires women as real estate agents. Later, Scott fires Mike after his workers dispose of wood flooring that Scott had hoped to re-use. Scott is later informed that the hot tub cannot be salvaged without receiving $3,000 in repairs, so he has it removed instead. While expanding a closet that seems too small, a safe is discovered to be hidden behind a wall. Various unsuccessful attempts are made to open the safe, including Scott pushing it out of a second-story window. With no general contractor, Amie must supervise ongoing work at the house. Amie purchases an expensive slab of granite counter top that was not in Scott's budget. When the workers accidentally drop the granite slab, Amie must purchase a cheaper, second slab of granite, which angers Scott when he finds out. Carpets and paint are late in being added, and the workers struggle to complete the home on time for the open house. A total of $17,500 is spent on renovations. Ashley sells the house for $149,900, marking her first sale for Goliath Company. Afterwards, Scott and Amie take the safe out to the desert, where it is placed atop a container of Tannerite.

With Baldemar as the project manager, Scott hopes to keep renovation costs at $25,000. However, the twins have doubts about Baldemar's ability to get the job done, so they bring in their own crew to clean up the house. When Baldemar and his crew arrive to work on the house, he is disappointed to find that most of the assigned work has already been done by the twins' crew. Baldemar works on the house's drywall, but the twins are disappointed with his poor work, so they have the drywall redone. Scott promises Baldemar that he will have more work to do on the house; Baldemar is upset when he arrives at the house again and sees that his crew is not needed. Baldemar quits as Scott's project manager and contractor after nearly three years of working for him. Amie and the twins argue about whose finishing touches will be added to the house. To settle the dispute, Scott, Amie and the twins shoot bullseye targets at an indoor shooting range, with Scott and Amie emerging as the winners. Renovations cost $35,250.

Scott hopes to keep renovation costs at $25,000, but Amie disagrees with keeping the house's outdated interior. Scott plans to square out an arched walkway, while keeping an arched non-glass window in the house; squaring out both arches is not within his budget.

Chad, Scott's tile installer, is given three days to complete an extensive amount of tile work. Scott's workers flee the house when a snake slithers inside, although it is later removed by Scott. With 18 hours left before the open house, Scott is upset to find that Chad has yet to install counter tops. The counter top slabs are rushed into fabrication. Chad and several workers are at the house late into the night installing the counter tops, but they face some difficulty because of an uneven kitchen island and a slab that is slightly too large, which requires additional cutting to fit. The next morning, Scott has his team rush to complete their work, without informing them that he has already delayed the open house until the next day, thus forcing the team to work faster. After $45,000 in renovations, Heather sells the house for $315,000.|

Andrew later gets mad at Dino after discovering that the budget for the house has gone over by 25 percent ($250,000). Dino says that the additional expenses have come from the owners, not him. Scott later concludes that Andrew and Frances have made purchases for the house that were more expensive than what the budget allowed. Scott and Amie are upset that Andrew allowed Frances to order the cream-colored cabinets, although they later concede that the cabinets look nice. Renovations are concluded at a cost of $1.3 million, which includes a down-sloped driveway that needed to be excavated three times.

Scott initially hopes to keep renovations at $15,000, but Amie wants to replace the house's outdated design.

When Amie views the newly finished railing, she is upset to see that the new wrought iron spindles are cracked and dented. Scott is upset that the entire railing must be replaced again. While Scott is giving commentary about the house, he tells the film crew to stop shooting as he is not feeling well.

|Scott purchases a three-bedroom two-and-a-half-bathroom house in northwest Las Vegas for $87,500. Scott warns Amie, a believer in ghosts, that the house is rumored to be haunted after its previous owner died there under "weird circumstances." They enter and discover that the living room walls are partially covered with red paint and that the ceiling has been burned. They also find bones in the kitchen, an upstairs bedroom with evil messages written in a foreign language, and cremated ashes in the living room. Scott speculates that the house was merely vandalized by local children on drugs as a Halloween prank, and says that he purchases so many houses each week, that he cannot tour them all before he buys them. Scott plans to spend $8,000 to renovate the house. Workers remove the living-room carpet and discover a large pentagram on the concrete slab underneath. When the painter refuses to paint over the bedroom walls with the evil writings out of fear that he will be cursed by the devil, Scott demonstrates to the painter that he can paint over the words without suffering any consequences. Amie is worried that they will have difficulty selling the house because of negative energy associated with it, so she hires Madame Barr, a local medium, to cleanse the house. Madame Barr informs Amie that animal sacrifices took place inside the house and that it is inhabited by a poltergeist, which further worries Scott's workers. Scott arrives at the house during Madame Barr's visit, and forces Amie to make her leave to avoid scaring the workers and to keep progress moving on the house. A day and a half before the open house, there is still a lot of work needed on the house, and the workers refuse to stay late because of fears that the house is haunted. Scott has Amie bring Madame Barr back to the house, so she can cleanse the house by walking through it while chanting. Madame Barr informs them that the spirit has left the house through an open window. A $1,000 wall is added to the house's upstairs loft to make it a fourth bedroom, adding $15,000 to the house's value. A total of $24,000 is put into renovations.

Scott hopes to keep renovations at $10,000, and hires a new project manager, Darryll, to oversee renovations. An HVAC repairman discovers a marijuana plant in the attic, but Scott declines to contact the police, as he believes that will only slow down progress on the house. Instead, Scott plans to contact his lawyer on how to proceed. Scott becomes upset at Darryll when power is briefly shut off at the house, preventing workers from continuing with the renovations. More marijuana is discovered at the house, inside a plastic bag. Scott contacts his lawyer, who advises him not to touch the marijuana until it can be determined whether the FBI's case is still ongoing, as the drugs could be considered evidence in the case. Gady arrives on the morning of the open house and is worried that it will not be complete on time, with only a few hours left to install carpets throughout the house. Renovations are finished on time, at a cost of $11,500, but Gady is forced to hold the open house with the marijuana plant still in the attic.

Because the house is an hour away from where Scott lives, he hires a project manager, Larry, to oversee the renovations. Trash and other items from the previous construction workers are removed. Scott's workers discover a small hole in a wall that leads into an extra bedroom that Scott did not realize was there. Scott discovers scorpions in the additional room, but stomps on them. When Scott brings Amie to the house to hear her design ideas, they discover more scorpions. Scott hires an exterminator to kill the scorpions. Later, Scott discovers that coyotes had walked inside the house earlier after being attracted by his workers' food wrappers.

Scott returns the next day and discovers that he has trapped a neighborhood dog instead. Later, Scott has a worker repair a portion of the roof that is prone to leaking.

Later, Scott receives a phone call in the middle of the night, informing him that someone had broken into the condo. Upon arriving, Scott discovers graffiti on the walls, but no sign of the intruder.

When Amie goes to Walker Zanger to pick out counter tops, she also tags several higher-priced slabs that she plans to use in future houses that are more expensive.

|16||8||"Class Action House"||February 2, 2013|
|At a cost of $107,000, Scott purchases a house that suffered flood damage but was listed as being remediated. Scott and Gady tour the house and discover the flood damage to be worse than they initially thought. Scott hopes to keep renovation costs at $27,000. Scott is upset to discover that the house's piping was manufactured by Kitec, a company responsible for defective piping in numerous Las Vegas homes. Scott learns of a class action lawsuit that provides affected homeowners with funds to replace the Kitec piping, in the event that it caused flooding. However, the funds expire on March 31, 2012, giving Scott only a few weeks to receive the money for replacement piping. Scott has mold specialists inspect the house; they discover toxic airborne mold throughout the structure as a result of the flood. The specialists tear out affected areas of the house, including the upstairs bathroom, as part of an extensive and lengthy process to remove the mold. During the process, it is discovered that the upstairs toilet caused the flood, making Scott ineligible to receive funds from the class action lawsuit and forcing him to spend his own money to replace the defective piping.

While Scott is away, Gady arrives at the home to take pictures that can be used to advertise the open house, but she is disappointed by the lack of progress. When she smells an odd odor, she contacts Scott, who informs her that it may be a gas leak from earlier in the day when workers activated the water heater.

Scott and Heather tour the house and discover that more than a dozen cats and kittens are inhabiting the structure, which is filthy with cat food, urine, and fecal matter. Scott has a no-kill shelter take away the animals. An expert informs Scott that the amount of urine in the house is toxic, as it contains ammonia. Work on the house is delayed by several days in order to remediate it by removing urine-stained drywall throughout the structure. Scott, who is usually not enthused by Amie's ideas, is impressed with her plan to add a breakfast bar to the kitchen. While discussing plans for the backyard landscaping, Scott and Amie discover five cat graves marked by tombstones. Amie insists that the bodies be humanely removed rather than landscaped over. Amie has the bodies exhumed and cremated for $700. During renovations, Scott and Amie hear a cat meowing from within the walls.

Scott criticizes the house's location, but Mark tells him that "you gotta take what you can get." The house is a single-story 1,300-square-foot three-bedroom two-bathroom and is located near a college. Scott, Amie and Mark enter and discover that it was used as a fraternity house. They find the home to be littered with trash, and also discover a wall decorated with women's underwear. In the backyard, they discover five retaining walls that lead up a hill. Each wall is in need of repairs. Scott does not plan to spend more than $25,000 in renovations. One of the retaining walls partially collapses while workers are near it. Amie dislikes the popcorn ceilings in the house and scrapes away a little of the ceiling in each room. Scott and Mark are upset when they discover what Amie has done, as they are now forced to spend money for better-looking ceilings. A closet and a wall are added to the den area to convert it into a fourth bedroom. Mark is surprised to learn that it will cost $35,000 to $40,000 to completely remove the retaining walls. Mark and Scott argue about the high cost, with Scott telling him that he purchased a bad house. Scott subsequently devises a cheaper solution by building new walls to cover the old ones. The house also has a pool with cracked plaster, which is remedied by applying an epoxy paint. After $30,000 in renovations, Rexalyn sells the house for $159,000.|
|21||3||"Doomsday House"||November 16, 2013||1.027|
|Scott and Amie team up with twins Phil and Tom for another house flip on a five-bedroom six-bathroom home in Summerlin, purchased for $335,000. Scott and the twins enter and discover that the house was used by doomsday preppers for an potential apocalypse, as the house is stockpiled with food, water, ammo, and camping gear; they donate the food and water, and keep the other stuff. Scott hopes to keep renovation costs at $35,000. Amie and the twins have some disagreements over designs for the house, although they allow her to choose a design for the fireplace herself. The next day, Scott and the twins discover that at least one of the previous tenants had broken into the house and added graffiti on the wall with expletive sentences demanding the return of the house's contents. Scott and the twins discover that the intruder has just escaped through the upstairs balcony; they plan to contact the police and install an alarm. Later, Tom disagrees with Amie's decision to have the drywall above the fireplace removed. A worker later removes the fireplace mantle, despite Amie's instruction not to do so. Scott disapproves of the paint color that Amie chose for the house: light green. Scott believes that the color makes the house look like a baby nursery, while she insists that it evokes the feeling of being in a spa. Scott and Amie return the next day and discover a smoke bomb left inside by a previous tenant. Scott is upset that the twins have yet to install an alarm. When the twins see Amie's paint color, they also disagree with it, believing it to be gray. The twins want to repaint the entire house, which will cost $3,000. Amie quits as the designer, but Scott devises a compromise between them in which certain walls are painted a darker shade of gray. The twins are in charge of fixing the fireplace mantle, although their worker instead installs a granite slab on the hearth on the morning of the open house. Scott and Amie discover the mistake and must delay the open house until the following morning to remove the slab and install a mantle. After $45,000 in renovations, Rexalyn sells the house for $450,000.|
|22||4||"Hoarder House"||November 23, 2013||1.237|
|Scott purchases a four-bedroom two-bathroom house in northeast Las Vegas for $25,000. Scott believes it was formerly inhabited by a hoarder as it is extensively cluttered with various items. Scott hopes to keep additional costs at $1,000 to simply clean out the house, but Amie wants a full renovation to take place to improve the structure, as she believes it resembles a double-wide trailer. While Scott is away, Amie ties a rope around the house's carport and ties the other end to her SUV, which she uses to tear down the carport, as she did not like its appearance. Amie also has a clean-up crew tear out the carpeting and the house's exterior aluminum siding, which angers Scott when he discovers the removals. When Scott finds out the house has asbestos, he reluctantly hires a crew to remove it as part of an expensive and lengthy process. Without telling Scott, Amie has the asbestos crew tear out the kitchen cabinets and much of the bathrooms, as well as a wall that separated the kitchen from the living room. Scott becomes upset when he discovers that Amie has ordered additional demolition without consulting him. Work on the house is delayed after a worker accidentally drives over one of the prefabricated cabinets that Amie ordered. Amie has a new carport added, with a $1,500, 15-foot skylight built into it. Amie also has a patio cover built in the backyard. Scott is upset to discover that the new carport and patio cost $5,500. On the day of the open house, Larry informs Scott and Amie that someone had broken into the house and stole its copper plumbing. The crews rush and manage to fix the problems on time for the open house, with renovations totaling $60,000. Gady sells the house for $135,000.|

|Scott purchases a 2,900 square-foot two-story five-bedroom three-bathroom house in Summerlin for $320,000. Upon entering the house, Scott and Amie conclude that the previous tenants were alien enthusiasts after discovering it to be full of communication equipment and documents relating to extraterrestrials. They also find that the kitchen has been covered entirely in tinfoil. Scott plans to spend $30,000 in renovations on the house over a 12-day period. Amie does not like the house's dated interior, and wants to install a stair railing for $8,000 but Scott rejects her idea because of the high cost. Scott agrees to the railing when the cost is brought down to $4,000 by using old material from a previous house project. Amie also plans to have new light fixtures installed on the ceiling of the ground floor, which later becomes flooded after a worker accidentally hits a water line while working on the lights. Scott and Larry blame Amie and her lighting idea for the flood. The water is cleaned up, new plumbing is installed, and the ceiling drywall is replaced due to water damage. The long manufacturing time for Amie's custom-made cabinets delays other workers from doing further work in the house, so she has the cabinets rushed for completion. Amie later discovers that a special white glass counter slab will not be ready for one and a half to two weeks, because of the fragile nature of the slab material. Scott becomes upset at Amie for the delay, and for installing an expensive stainless steel ceiling fan on the backyard patio cover. After $50,000 in renovations, Heather sells the house for $420,000.|

Upon touring the house, Scott and Amie are upset to learn that the fire damage is worse than what Heather described. Scott hopes to keep renovations at $25,000. Renovations are done during a heat wave, which is made worse when a local wildfire occurs. Scott is upset to discover that Amie had nearly everything in the bathrooms removed, a decision that was made without him and was not in his budget or schedule. Exterior painting is delayed when a paint compressor machine fails to turn on. Scott discovers that the machine is too hot after sitting in the sun, so he has it moved into shade. Paint work eventually begins after the machine has cooled down. Scott later has a backyard tree cut down after being warned that it is nearly ready to fall and cause damage, as well as possible death. Scott is further upset by Amie when she has a fire pit added to the backyard. When the air conditioner fails, Scott's tile crew quits working but agrees to work later in the night when it is cooler. Scott has the air conditioner fixed the following day. After $40,000 in renovations, Heather sells the house for $219,900.

They discover crayon, marker, and Play-Doh markings on the walls, as well as a bedroom full of used diapers. The day after the house is painted, Scott realizes that the markings are still visible on the walls. Larry tells Scott that the painters have taken the day off after becoming infected with lice from the dirty house. A new oil-based primer is later applied to the walls to conceal the markings. Amie surprises Scott with a specially painted diamond-patterned accent wall in the master bedroom that is meant to give a spa feeling, but he disapproves because he believes that potential buyers will not enjoy it. When a toilet begins leaking, Scott hires a plumber to fix it. The toilet is removed and the plumber discovers the source of the clogged toilet drain: a doll head that had been flushed down the toilet. Scott has Amie's accent wall repainted with a dark color, but he is upset to see that the lines of the diamond pattern are still visible. The wall is re-textured and repainted again to fully remove the lines. Continuing with her spa-themed idea, Amie has a $5,500 eight-person shower installed in the master bathroom without telling Scott, which angers him. Amie also has diamond-patterned carpet installed in the house. Scott is upset at Amie when he discovers that she ordered new cabinets, even though he planned to keep the current cabinets and stain them. Scott is later upset to find that his workers did a bad job on the cabinets, so he pays to have them redone. Amie has river rock applied to the fireplace as part of her spa theme. The day before the open house, various workers are struggling to get the home finished on time. Amie has a new diamond pattern painted on a wall near the front door, an idea that Scott approves.

|Scott purchases a small house and he and Amie discover that during its vacancy, it had been used by local "skate punks" as an indoor skatepark and for paintball fights. They also discover graffiti on the walls and trash throughout the house. At a purchase price of $76,500, Scott realizes the house was not as good a deal as he initially thought. Scott and Amie agree to renovate the house on a cheap budget of $10,000. Broken tiles and soiled carpets are removed from the house, and new paint is applied to cover the graffiti. The next day, Scott and Amie discover that the "skate punks" had broken into the house through a side door to have another paintball fight inside. Scott does not contact the police as he does not believe they will be of any help. Scott has the paintball messes cleaned up and the walls repainted. Amie makes low-cost design decisions by choosing Ubatuba countertops and laminate wood flooring. The next day, Scott and Amie find that the "skate punks" have tossed rolls of toilet paper onto the tree in the front yard. Amie is also upset at Scott for changing her fireplace design idea to be cheaper. To provide the house with a low-cost custom design, Amie has a laminate wood accent wall put up in the kitchen. Amie later goes against Scott's wishes and has tile installed on part of the fireplace's brick base. Without informing Scott, Amie also has a $2,500 fire pit placed in the small backyard to help the house sell, a decision that Scott later finds out about and approves. The next day, they discover the "skate punks" have vandalized the front yard with toilet paper again, as well as trash, and have also spray-painted the driveway with graffiti. The day before the open house, Scott's workers struggle to get the house finished on time. Scott pays his driver to stay parked outside the house all night to prevent the "skate punks" from further vandalizing the property. After $15,000 in renovations, Michelle sells the house for $119,000.|
|28||2||"Renters From Hell"||March 8, 2014|
|Scott purchases a three-bedroom two-bathroom house in Summerlin for $109,000. Scott initially believes the house is a good deal, until he and Amie see the dirty worn-down interior, filled with cockroaches and multiple mattresses. Scott estimates that more than 18 people had been living in the home as a rental. During renovation work in the kitchen, more cockroaches are discovered, and Amie refuses to continue working on the house until the bugs are removed. Scott uses bug bombs to kill the cockroaches. Amie then spends $3,000 on electrical wiring to have sconces installed in the house, and to allow for the future owner to install plasma televisions. Power to the house is shut down for several hours due to a mix-up involving an unpaid $8,000 power bill for the previous tenants, although Scott resolves the issue. Amie is upset with the new paint on the kitchen cabinets, as it is too blue. Amie pays to have the cabinets painted again. Later, some of the house's new limestone floors have to be replaced after they start cracking, due to all of the construction workers. When more cockroaches are discovered, Amie hires an exterminator. Amie is later upset that the tan floors do not match with the blue grout that was used. Amie then begins to cry and leaves the house after Scott gets upset at her for ordering additional cabinets that he said were unnecessary. Scott has the grout restained, and has plants and a backyard patio cover added to the house's exterior. After $45,000 of renovations, Rexalynn sells the house for $240,000.|
|29||3||"Black Market House"||March 15, 2014|
|Amie purchases a home filled with counterfeit credit cards and driver's licenses. Scott is upset when he discovers that Amie had ordered Larry, the project manager, to tear down a small wall inside the house. Scott, who had wanted to keep the wall, then puts Amie in charge of the home's renovations. During renovations, small box deliveries for the previous tenants keep arriving at the house. Each box is subsequently brought inside the house. Later, Scott and Amie discover that someone had broken into the house to retrieve the boxes' contents. Scott then has a security system installed.|
|30||4||"Reptile House"||March 22, 2014|
|Scott purchases a one-bedroom house for $68,000. When Scott and Amie visit the house, they find the front yard to be overgrown with trees and plants that obscure the structure. Inside, the house has the appearance of a double-wide trailer. They discover dead bugs everywhere, as well as a tortoise, scorpions and a snake inside containers, a giant lizard in a bathroom, and a large yellow snake roaming in a room. Scott hopes to keep renovation costs at $12,000, and hires experts to remove the reptiles, which includes an additional snake discovered in the backyard. Scott's workers then remove 90 percent of the overgrown trees and plants. Scott discovers that all the house's ductwork is rusted and needs to be replaced. Additionally, Scott must replace the swamp cooler and an outdated breaker box, all of which adds $9,000 in expenses to his budget. Later, Larry discovers that a clay pipe – which were commonly used in the 1950s – has broken off from the main sewer line as a result of overgrown roots from a nearby tree. Scott cuts down most of the tree with a chainsaw, has his workers remove the roots, and then has the pipe repaired. Amie disagrees with Scott's choice of plastic cabinets, so she later has laminate wood flooring installed. Drywall repairs are performed to repair wall damage from the previous tenants and from the ductwork repairs. Because of a rain storm from the previous night, the drywall does not dry on time, so Scott uses space heaters that the previous tenants left behind to dry the walls. Scott's landscaping crew briefly stops working after spotting a small snake, which Scott later removes. Closets are added to two of the rooms to convert them into bedrooms and add value to the house. After $25,000 in renovations, Gady sells the house for $120,900.|

|Scott purchases a four-bedroom three bathroom house for $50,050. When Scott and Amie enter the house, they discover it has a bad smell and is filthy with dog food, trash, and urine-soaked furniture. Upstairs, they discover cages and dog feces, as well as fliers advertising the house as a dog kennel. Scott hopes to keep his budget for the house at $15,000. An illegal room addition in the garage is removed for not being built up to building codes. The carpets are removed, although the odor remains. Baseboards and lower portions of drywall that had been soaked with dog urine in certain areas of the house are removed, but the smell remains. With temperatures unseasonably cold in Las Vegas, wood stain that was left inside the house has frozen and is now unusable. Scott discovers that the house does not have a heater or an air conditioner, so he brings in a space heater to keep new containers of stain from freezing. Scott has scented paint applied to the walls to get rid of the odor, but it does not work. Scott discovers the smell is coming from the bathrooms and then hires a plumber, who removes dog hair from the sewer line and eliminates the odor. When power keeps going out at the house, Scott discovers it is because a dozen space heaters are being used by a worker to acclimate laminate wood floors before they are installed, as the house's main heater has not arrived yet. As a solution, Scott brings in a generator to power the space heaters. Scott becomes upset at Amie when he discovers that she had the wall by the stairs covered with laminate wood flooring to make it an accent wall. Two days before the open house, Larry insists to Scott that the house will be ready despite a lot of work that is needed. The house is completed on time after a total of $30,000 in renovations. Rexalynn sells the house for $115,000.|
|33||7||"Old Folks Home"||April 12, 2014|
|Scott purchases a three-bedroom two-bathroom house in east Las Vegas for $65,000, which he initially believes is a good deal. When Scott and Amie arrive at the house, they discover that someone had vandalized the rooftop air conditioner to steal parts from it. Inside, Scott and Amie find wheelchairs and walkers left behind by the previous tenants. They also discover that soil underneath the slab foundation has begun expanding in parts of the house, raising the flooring. They also find that someone had broken into the house and stolen some copper wiring, as well as the water heater. Scott estimates that the house could need up to $60,000 in renovations, which would be primarily spent on fixing the foundation. At a selling price of $120,000, Scott notes that if renovations are as expensive as projected, this would be the first time he has lost money on a flip: $5,000. Scott and Larry devise a way to keep expenses low by only repairing the worst areas of the foundation that are affected by the expanding soil, while smoothing out other areas that are not as bad. Scott is angered when he discovers Amie and Larry tearing down a wall with two entrances leading into the kitchen. Amie believes that tearing down the wall will give the house an open feeling, but Scott does not believe that there is time and money to spend on such a renovation. A portion of the wall is later restored to allow for an electrical outlet on the kitchen's island. Scott discovers that the pool's foundation is also in need of repairs, and then realizes that pool equipment has been stolen. To save money, Scott has the house's cabinets re-stained rather than replaced. During installation of the new rooftop air conditioner, the old air conditioner is accidentally let loose from the crane carrying it, temporarily worrying Scott into believing that his new air conditioner has been damaged. Scott later becomes angry at Amie when he discovers that she has plans to redesign the fireplace. On the day of the open house, there is still electrical and plumbing work occurring in each room. Landscaping and the installation of carpets is also taking place, with the open house occurring in a few hours. The house is completed on time, with a total of $33,000 invested into renovations. Scott's real estate agent Michelle sells the home for $127,000.|

Scott and Amie tour the building and discover that the floors are uneven and in danger of collapsing. Additionally, a bathroom leak and leaking ceilings are also discovered. Amie desires to expensively renovate the building, while Scott wishes to do so on a cheaper budget. After arguing, Scott decides to let Amie have the smaller duplex unit to renovate her way, while he handles the other, larger unit. Scott hopes to keep renovations at $15,000, with a 10-day schedule to get them done. Larry informs Scott that the floors likely suffered termite damage approximately 20 years earlier, and that the floor repairs were not properly done. Larry also tells Scott that the ceiling is in danger of collapsing. The floors and ceiling are repaired, and outdated wood paneling is removed. Later, Amie insists on having a backyard shed removed. Scott declines to spend money to have it removed, and takes it down himself by tying rope around it and to his vehicle, which he then uses to pull the shed apart. At Walker Zanger, Michelle is surprised to see that Scott has come along with Amie so they can choose tiles for their duplex units. Scott selects the cheapest tile choices and is finished within 10 minutes, in contrast to Amie who usually spends more time selecting higher-priced tiling. Amie decides to use weathered wood from pallets (used to transport the tiles) to form a wood wall in her duplex unit. While Amie is shopping, Scott sneaks into her unit and discovers the wood wall, which he believes is unattractive. Scott has a worker help him remove the new wood paneling, but he is stopped when Amie arrives. As retaliation, Amie reschedules Scott's tiling crew to instead start work on her unit first. On the day before the open house, there is still a large amount of work to be done. Renovations are completed on time, and the duplex is shown by Rexalynn to potential buyers, while Scott and Amie are eager to know which unit is better received. A couple purchases the duplex with plans to live in Amie's unit, while renting out Scott's. Amie claims victory, stating that the couple wants to live in the nicer unit.|

|In an auction, Amie has purchased a three-bedroom, two-bathroom, 1,600-square-foot house for $25,000. Scott and Amie are disappointed to find that much of the interior needs drywall, but are surprised to find new kitchen appliances in the house. Scott hopes to keep the renovation costs at $10,000. Scott allows Amie to handle the interior while he works on the yard. Amie is disappointed when Larry tells her that more than half of the budget has been spent on drywall, plumbing, and electrical. Later, Amie visits the house and is upset to see that the kitchen appliances are gone. Amie believes the house was robbed, but Scott tells her that he had the appliances moved to his warehouse to use for a future house that is located in a better neighborhood. Scott is upset when he learns that Amie is having the house's exterior front wall tiled.

Scott gives himself a budget of $8,000 and less than two weeks to renovate the house. After starting work on the house, Larry informs Scott and Amie of a cricket infestation, which he is tasked with handling by stomping on the bugs. On the fourth day of renovations, Scott and Amie visit the house and are surprised to hear loud military jets flying over the property. They learn that the house rests underneath a flight path for the nearby Nellis Air Force Base. To help keep out the noise, Scott has the house's popcorn ceilings retextured and has insulation installed in the attic. Later, Amie is upset about Scott's landscaping idea for the front yard, which consists of red rocks like the other houses on the street. Amie believes the front yard needs a better landscape to attract buyers, but Scott rejects her idea. With the open house scheduled for the following week, Scott is upset at Larry, who still has much work left on the home. Later, Scott agrees to spend $3,000 for double pane windows to be installed throughout the house to help keep out the noise from the military jets. Scott becomes further angered when he discovers that Amie had expensive textured tiles applied to some of the interior walls, which has left work in other areas of the house neglected. When the crickets return, Amie hires an exterminator, and later purchases carpet padding made of thick rubber that will help keep out the noise. Scott is upset when he discovers that Amie has also had tiles applied to the carport support columns. Renovations are completed at a cost of $17,000.

Scott plans to invest $8,000 into the house for renovations. During work on the house, Amie informs Scott that a blue vehicle has been following them, but he does not believe her. Scott and Amie then find money and identification cards hidden inside the house. A brick is then thrown through one of the windows. Scott and Amie then spot the blue car driving away. Scott pays a worker to sleep at the house and monitor it for break-ins. The next day, Scott and Amie discover a box in the backyard that contains blackmail photos. Scott has desert landscaping put into the backyard, and has an old wood fence torn down for a new one. Amie has the weathered wood from the fence installed on a wall in the master bedroom to create an accent wall. Scott criticizes Amie's decision to have rock flooring – in the shape of a curving river – leading from the front door to a wet bar. Scott later becomes upset that Amie's designs have delayed various aspects of work on the house. A total of $14,000 in renovations are concluded on the house, including the conversion of an office into a fourth bedroom by adding a closet. During an open house, Gady sells the home for $125,000.

|41||8||"Plastic Surgery House"||September 27, 2014|
|Scott purchases a one-story 1,200-square-foot three-bedroom one-bathroom house in a low-income neighborhood for $70,000. Amie does not like the house's exterior, which consists of barred windows, vinyl siding, and a rock façade on the front. Scott and Amie enter the house and are surprised at the cleanliness of the living room. However, they tour the rest of the house and discover medical equipment, biohazardous medical items, before-and-after plastic surgery photos, blood stains, and a chair that was used for gynecology exams. They realize that the house was used as an illegal plastic surgery clinic, and that the living room was used as the waiting room. Scott hopes to keep renovations at $4,000. In the large, dirt backyard, Amie has Scott's workers cut down a dead tree, which he wanted to keep in order to stay on budget. Amie, who is forced to keep the vinyl siding to stay within budget, has the siding painted dark brown. The kitchen is completely redone with new cabinetry and appliances, which Scott agrees was necessary. Amie pays for laminate hardwood floors, going against Scott's wishes to install new, cheap carpeting in the house. To install the new flooring, the workers must first jackhammer cracked concrete in the foundation, which angers Scott when he learns of Amie's plan. The next day, Scott is upset to find that the new concrete has not yet been smoothed out. Shortly after the laminate floors are installed, the air conditioner stops working, which threatens to warp the flooring before it can settle in place. Scott learns that the house's compressor needs to be replaced; he spends $2,400 for a new one. Scott is further upset when he sees that Amie had his workers tile two walls inside the house. Additionally, Amie also had a wall of wood panels taken down and replaced with a wall of laminate wood. The house is filthy and still in need of many minor fixes on the day before the open house, but the renovations are completed on time, at a cost of $14,000. Gady sells the house for $114,900. Afterwards, Scott takes Amie to a large desert property and tells her that she can design their dream home for the land, with a budget of $4 million. Scott's only condition is that Amie not be involved in his future house flips, to which she agrees.|
