Fans of HGTV's Flipping Virgins already know that the show, spun off of parent series Property Virgins, focuses on host Egypt Sherrod's accessible, practical real-estate advice for first-time home flippers, and that the the series is based in Atlanta, Ga. What they may not know (because it was just announced today) is that the popular series has moved into a new prime-time slot on HGTV, with new episodes now airing Wednesdays at 11p|10c — beginning tonight.

Egypt wasted no time giving the move a big thumb's-up via her Instagram feed — with the Insta hashtag #movingonuplikethejeffersons.

For those uninitiated on just why this show and its host are so hot and deserving of your attention, you should know that Egypt has more than 15 years of experience in house flipping, and she dispenses down-to-earth, real-world advice to first-timers in the realm of real-estate investing.

And on a somewhat more personal note, refer to our recent post, "10 Things You Didn't Know About Egypt Sherrod". Spoiler alert: She once sang on stage with Prince, and Oprah once praised her choice in footwear. How's that for two one-name-celebrity name drops?

Speaking of name-drops, just this past year Egypt crossed paths with the President and First Lady, Barack and Michelle Obama, (and not forgetting first dogs Sunny and Bo) when she hosted HGTV's White House Christmas 2016 special.

As seen on HGTV's White House Christmas 2016, host Egypt Sherrod, stands on the South Lawn of the White House. “The Gift of the Holidays,” reflects on not only the joy of giving and receiving, but also the true gifts of life, such as service, friends and family, education, and good health, as we celebrate the holiday season.

As seen on HGTV's White House Christmas 2016, host Egypt Sherrod, is greeted by Bo and Sunny in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House. The Diplomatic Reception Room serves as an entrance to the White House from South Grounds for the family and for ambassadors arriving to present their credentials to the President. This year’s holiday theme, “The Gift of the Holidays,” reflects on not only the joy of giving and receiving, but also the true gifts of life, such as service, friends and family, education, and good health, as we celebrate the holiday season.

The first episode of Flipping Virgins to air in the new time slot is titled "Atlanta Flip Mascot", and Egypt guides first-time flippers Bonnie and Drew through their first house flip. Drew and Bonnie are a young couple eager to get their feet wet in Atlanta's currently hopping real-estate market.

They're operating on a $150,000 budget, have been wanting to give house-flipping a try but are complete novices. Once they decide on a property, the discovery and rescue of a kitten in a wall provides a good omen, but a costly renovation setback brings some unexpected challenges. Ultimately, the renovation includes an opened-up floor plan, a to-die-for kitchen and Egypt's trademark inventive decorating and staging. And there are macaroons.

Flipping Success

Exterior, Before

A petal pink brick exterior drove potential buyers away — good news for investors Ehimen and Kemi, who scored this house for $31,000 at auction. The catch? Their first step inside was after the purchase, making this a true gamble.

Exterior, After

Trendy gray paint adds a fresh look to this home's brick exterior. White trim and a candy apple red door add brightness to this renovated home.

Front Porch, After

New porch furniture and accessories add style and seating on the front porch.

Living Room, Before

The previous owners began a renovation but stopped suddenly, leaving building materials and unfinished work behind.

Living Room, After

Painting the brick fireplace warm gray and adding cream-colored paint on the walls creates style while remaining neutral enough to appeal to a wide swath of buyers.

Living Room, Before

Before the renovation, the flooring had been stripped down to the subfloor.

Living Room, After

Hardwood floors add warmth and value to this home's open living room.

Kitchen, Before

Before the renovation, a partial wall divided the kitchen from the dining room.

Kitchen, After

Removing the wall between the kitchen and dining room creates an open-concept cooking, eating and dining space — a must for many would-be homebuyers.

Bathroom, Before

With plumbing partially completed, the bathroom before was a work in progress.

Bathroom, After

Bright accents and a double sink add style to this renovated bathroom.

Their First Flip, SOLD!

Egypt listed the finished property for $115,000. After two days on the market, the couple sold their property for full price. After renovations, they walked away with a $43,249 profit. Not bad for a first flip!
