As the new season of “Flipping Out” moves into its second week on Wednesday (March 12), it’s clear that a major focus will be design assistant Andrew Coleman and his continued unprofessional behavior.
As revealed in last week’s Season 7 premiere, Jeff Lewis’ trustworthy assistant Jenni Pulos, she of the gigantic pregnant belly, is about ready to pop, which means maternity leave is knocking on the door. While Jeff admitted he was worried about what he’d do without her, Andrew reminded everyone just how delusional he is, suggesting he may get more responsibilities at Jeff Lewis Design in her stead.
Except, as even a casual viewer of the Bravo series knows, there’s nothing in Andrew’s history as an employee of Jeff’s that would remotely suggest that he deserves more responsibility. And this is something Jeff is clearly keenly aware of.
Enter: Megan. At the start of tonight’s episode, we learn that Jeff has brought in a friend to pick up Jenni’s slack — a move that didn’t please Andrew. So what does America’s No. 1 Employee do? Step up his game and prove he’s worthy of advancement?
Hahaha, have you been watching?
Andrew continues his ridiculous, confusing behavior, targeting Megan with his inappropriate, tawdry jokes that he seems to think are funny or charming or endearing, but instead are ground for a sexual harassment lawsuit in any sane workplace.
I mean, seriously: “Megan Weaver’s got a nice beaver”?
It’s pretty clear Jenni and Gage have had their fill of Andrew’s antics. (Truthfully, Gage gave up on ol’ Andy a season ago.) But, Jeff still gets a kick out of it — despite Andrew threatening Jeff’s nascent paint line last week. But, with a guy like Jeff, who also paid for an employee’s breast enhancement and attempted to coach her on which size to elect this week, is it any surprise he’s keeping Andrew along?
Do you think it’s time Andrew get the boot? Or are you still a fan of his behavior on “Flipping Out”?
