Tarek El Moussa is opening up about what led him to repair his relationship with ex Christina Hall.

When Tarek and his current wife, Heather El Moussa, appeared on The Tamron Hall Show Friday, they teased what viewers can expect from their upcoming HGTV series The Flip Off, which sees the couple competing with Christina and her husband, Josh Hall.

“I’m just going to say it, it’s a little bit weird we’re having a house flipping competition show because they have literally no chance of beating us,” Tarek told Tamron.

Heather added, “It’s crazy, but everyone is in such a good place and we’re here to give you guys a great show and we’re really excited about it.”

HGTV announced in May that Heather, 36, and Tarek, 42, would face off against Christina, 40, and Josh, 43, in the new project, set to premiere in 2025. The show marks Tarek and Christina's first time working together since Flip or Flop ended after nine years in March 2022.

While Tarek admitted to Tamron that he and Christina — who were married from 2009 to 2016 — went from “best friends to arch enemies,” he shared that it was his own parents' relationship that inspired him to make amends with his ex-wife.

“As time goes on, you start to think and you start to realize things, right?” he said. “And what I realized is this: I couldn’t imagine growing up in a family where my parents were divorced and they hated each other because I love my mom, I love my dad. They are divorced, but they still get together, and we do family dinners.”

“And the truth is, let the past be the past,” he continued.

Tarek and Christina share two children: daughter Taylor, 13, and son Brayden, 8.

Since ending their long-running series Flip or Flop, on which they continued to co-star for several seasons after they split, both HGTV hosts have launched other shows on the network.

Christina currently stars on Christina on the Coast and Christina in the Country with Hall, whom she married in 2022. Tarek starred on Flipping 101 with Tarek El Moussa and now appears with Heather on The Flipping El Moussas.

Tarek met Heather, who was a series regular on Netflix’s Selling Sunset up until season 7, in 2019, and they were married in 2021. They welcomed their son Tristan in 2023.

HGTV revealed the two couples would star on The Flip Off on May 15 and dropped a teaser trailer for the show. The home renovation stars have been regularly sharing cheeky promos for the project on their social media accounts.

According to a release from the network, they will "throw down" to see who can "find, buy, renovate and flip a house for the biggest financial gain."
