We've Got Big News for Fans of 'Flipping Virgins' and Egypt Sherrod
Flipping Virgins moves into prime time with more new episodes from season two.
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.
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.
