Would somebody explain this show to me? Is it a game show? What are people winning? Where do these "teams" come from? Does anyone else find this show confusing?

What are they winning? Money, if they flip right.

This is a variation ( actually a duplicate) of a show that was on another channel a few years ago. Don't remember the name or channel. People bid on homes for sale by the county (or some govt. Group). Pay in cash. Fix it up and resell.

Had it on because TV was boring yesterday as I cleaned. Interesting the the team with the most potential gain were the ones that did not sell the house, so it was all guess.

At first I found this show's premise confusing, didn't know what it was about and I pretty much still don't but I like the renovations they do so I decided not to care too much about the particulars.

I also like the finished renovations on this show. Has anyone else noticed that when the "flippers" do a walk-through at the end they seem shocked by the changes? ("Oh wow, look at what they did here!" or, "they took this wall out!") It's like they had no say or were not involved in the project.

Another faux show, but I do like the remodels, so I hope it sticks around.
