The new season of Flip or Flop will be accompanied by a new digital series titled Tarek's Flip Side, available on the HGTV app, HGTV.com, on-demand across all platforms, HGTV's Facebook and HGTV's YouTube Channel.

The web series will give fans a close look at El Moussa's personal life as he works on his business, plays hard and also spends quality time with his kids and family.
