Premise: A&E Network sure is into the ``flip'' scene. Joining the likes of ``Flipping Boston,'' ``Flipping Vegas'' and ``Flip This House'' in documenting how investors buy, renovate and quickly resell real estate is ``Flipped Off,'' which focuses on the house-flipping market in Houston. It stars, of all people, Russell Hantz, a three-time ``Survivor'' contestant who was tagged as a ``master manipulator'' on the popular reality series. He'll have to use a different tact to survive this venture, and to help him along the way is his big brother, Shawn, the team's project manager, and Kristen, who lends her expertise as a real estate agent. ``I expect to be one of the biggest house flippers in Houston,'' Hantz says with his usual confidence, ``and I am here to bring Houston's economy back on its feet.''
