Christina Anstead and Tarek El Moussa started the weekend by dropping some big news about Flip or Flop: Season 9 of the hit show is slated to premiere Oct. 15 on HGTV.

Tarek set a lofty goal for the final episode of the season, which includes 15 new episodes. And if the expression Christina's expression in the teaser photo Tarek posted to Instagram is any indication, he rose to the occasion.

"For the last episode of season 9, I had a goal to find the nastiest, most disgusting house I could possibly find," he wrote on Instagram. "Based on [Christina's] face, I accomplished my goal! This house has feces, urine, rats, mice, flies, nats, termites, cockroaches and a few dead birds."

For comparison's sake, Christina invoked the infamous turkey episode, where a rotten turkey carcass left out in the kitchen for an unknown amount of time left a flip project smelling quite horrible.

"This season has two of the most disgusting homes I’ve ever walked," Christina teased. "And if you have seen the turkey episode, that’s saying a lot."

It's hard to believe it, but Flip or Flop first premiered back in 2013. And a lot has changed in the past seven years. Tarek parted ways from Christina (formerly El Moussa) after filing for divorce in January 2017. In spite of their split, the influential real estate moguls continue to film their show together. In fact, both Tarek and Christina have emerged stronger than ever in their personal and professional lives, which now include new loves and their own solo shows.
