Keep reading for everything you need to know about Flipping Across America and its host, Alison Victoria.
Who is Alison Victoria?
Alison rose to fame as the first female host of the DIY Network series, Crashers. She went on to host and design for HGTV's Kitchen Crashers thereafter, which helped her build her public brand and led to the launch of Alison's consulting firm, Alison Victoria Interiors, which boasts offices in Chicago and Las Vegas.
Most recently, Alison became a household name for avid HGTV fans as one half of Windy City Rehab (along with contractor Donovan Eckhardt), where viewers follow Alison "as she buys vintage homes in her native Chicago then transforms them into buyer-friendly dream properties."
"Flipping houses in my hometown of Chicago is my dream," she said of the opportunity. "And it's my dream because the architecture is there, and it has been there for more than a hundred years. To be able to go in and save some of that history — that's the goal."
But the rising television personality fell into hot water when she and her co-host were sued earlier this year by a Chicago couple who bought a $1.36 million home they flipped.
According to the lawsuit, James and Anna Morrissey experienced leaks and water damage as soon as "the day after closing."
While many speculated that these legal troubles would mean the end of Windy City Rehab, Alison announced earlier today on July 9 that "Season 2 is coming!!"
Tune into Alison's new HGTV show!
Alison, who, according to the site Viral Net Worth, has a net worth of about $4 million, is sure to be racking in some more coins with her summer HGTV series.
Rather than showcase her own house-flipping abilities on this show, the designer "travels America to show how favorite flipping masters economize their renovations."
According to HGTV, each episode watches the interior design star follow "two hosts with similar purchase prices and budgets, and the flipper whose remodel and design nets the biggest sale is declared the winner."
Is it a real competition show? Not really, Alison says in the trailer.
Rather, we get to see which of the teams' homes wins over buyers, and whether they can manage to make a sale. Plus, it features some special guests from other HGTV programs — Good Bones and Flip or Flop alumni are set to make some appearances.
Don't miss Flipping Across America, Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on HGTV.
