The Movember ambassador spoke with us about what fans will see in the current season from the dynamic duo. "We’re gonna see one of the biggest projects we’ve ever done. One of the highest profits we’ve ever done. ... It’s just a wild season," Tarek told Distractify. "We just had a lot of fun and beat up houses. There are a lot of huge remodels." 

As for what it's like working with his ex-wife, the 39-year-old said that the "chemistry" between the two is "the best it has been in years." Adding, "We’re getting along great. The show is definitely thriving."

Tarek El Moussa wants to continue to film television shows for "many years."

It's not uncommon for reality stars to eventually decide they've had enough of the cameras and want to lead a more "normal" life. However, Tarek revealed to Distractify that he does not want the cameras to ever turn off. 

"Flip or Flop is one thing, but my TV career I plan on continuing to grow and improve and create new shows and build the brand and be in front of that camera for as many years as I can," he told us. 

Aside from his hit show with Christina, Tarek also has a spinoff series, Flipping 101 With Tarek El Moussa, which shows the reality star teaching first-time flippers how to successfully net a profit from flipping a home.

The successful spinoff show has already been renewed for Season 2 by HGTV. So, what's next for Tarek? The father of two said that he would love to film a show with his fiancée, Heather Rae Young. "We talk about that every day, how much fun it would be. That is on the list of things we want to do. … I do see it happening one day," he gushed. 

And, he's not nervous about working with his soon-to-be wife. Adding, "She’s my best friend. We hang out all day. We’re best friends. If I can go to work with her, that’d be the best thing in the world."

Flip or Flop airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on HGTV.
