Look out, Tarek and Christina El Moussa! You’ve got some competition coming your way.
After seven seasons of the friendly exes holding court as the reigning (and only) Flip or Flop hosts on HGTV, the network has begun spinning off the series to various cities across America. The first of five planned spin-offs, Flip or Flop Vegas, has already hit the airwaves, making basic cable stars out of married couple Bristol and Aubrey Marunde. And the Marundes are confident they can more than hold their own against the Flip or Flop OGs in a flip off.
“Well, we would hope our house would win if we did any kind of flip off against anybody, right?” Aubrey told E! News during our recent visit at the site of one of their current flips.
“We’re competitive,” Bristol continued. “We want to win all battles!”
While the Marundes are a united front when it comes to outside challengers, they admitted that they’re always butting heads around the construction site. Who among them usually comes out victorious?
“That would be me,” Aubrey said, raising her hand. “I usually win the battles most of the time because they’re related to design.”
“She wins the design battles. I win the construction battles. And often times we end up working together because somebody has to build it, somebody has to design it, so there’s always a communication between the two.”
“It’s a compromise between the two,” Aubrey added.
For more from the pair, including Bristol’s message to Vanilla Ice and the answer to which Property Brothers brother they’d invite to a dinner party, be sure to check out the videos above!
Who do you think would win in a flip-off: The Marundes or the El Moussas? Sound off in the comments below!
Flip or Flop Vegas airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on HGTV.

The investigation continues regarding Chris Soules as he faces criminal charges for leaving the scene of his fatal car accident earlier this week.
E! News can confirm Iowa’s Buchanan County authorities have requested a search warrant regarding the investigation. TMZ reports the warrant is for the red Chevy that drove Soules home from the scene on Monday night. However, we’ve obtained the documents which state that the cause for the warrant as well as the response will remain sealed.
A judge signed off on the sealed search warrant records, stating, “All affidavits, attachments, endorsement, inventories and the return of the warrant are sealed and shall not be open without order from the court, because public disclosure of facts could jeopardize the investigation, infringe in rights of person involved, and impede the administration of justice.”

Meanwhile, Soules rear-ended a tractor driving near his hometown in Iowa on Monday night, killing the man who was driving the tractor, Kenneth Mosher. Soules now faces criminal charges for leaving the scene of an accident and has hired a high-powered legal team from Des Moines to represent him.
The team has filed to have all information regarding the investigation remain sealed due to the high publicity surrounding Soules and the accident.
The attorneys said in a statement they “are confident that once all the evidence is made public, it will show Soules acted reasonably and did everything in his power to provide aid to Mr. Mosher.”
As E! News confirmed, Soules was the one who made the 911 call and took Mosher’s pulse before authorities arrived at the scene.
“Everyone in this close-knit farming community is mourning Mr. Mosher’s passing,” the statement continued. “Soules offers his sincere condolences to the Mosher family.”
