Jett Pink, who famously survived Jeff Lewis‘ firing squad last season, will not be returning to Flipping Out for season 6. He wrote on November 28 on his Twitter account (@jett_pink): “First official day of being unemployed. Went for a nice bike ride, drank some coffee, sent some emails.. I think I could get used to this!” He then followed up with “Oh yeah, if anyone has any ideas of what I should do with my life lmk.. Thx!” Jett was promoted from being a house assistant to an office assistant last season by Jeff, so what happened since then to change Jeff’s mind?
Jett assures Reality TV Magazine that it wasn’t personal. He tweeted:”…he just let me go in order to cut down on costs. Assistants are a luxury expense.” We have certainly seen Jeff make budget and staff cuts the past few years due to the reality of today’s economy. When I asked him whether Jenni Pulos and Gabe Lewis were taking over his responsibilities, he responded: “Not sure what they’ll do.. Season 6 [of Flipping Out] filming won’t start til January.”
In other Flipping Out cast news, Jeff, Jenni, and housekeeper Zoila Chavez will be starring in a spin-off called Interior Therapy in which Jeff and Jenni move in together with a family for a week and help them remodel. Jenni is also recently engaged to a Greek doctor who is based in Chicago.
We wish Jett the best of luck and wished we were seeing his handsome mug on Bravo every week, but we can still hear from Jett and his band Whitehouse Station. To keep in touch with Jett, tweet him at @jett_pink or find him on Facebook.com/whitehousestation.
