“Flip or Flop’s” Tarek El Moussa Got a Vampire Facial and It’s Just as Scary As It Sounds


At the urging of his ex-wife Christina El Moussa, “Flip or Flop” star Tarek El Moussa recently took a trip to the spa for a relaxing day. Yet, it turned out to be an experience he will never forget.

“What did I do!!,” he wrote on Friday (Oct. 5) alongside a downright gross-looking pic of his face caked in blood. “Christina dared me to get a “vampire” facial. I was like “a facial with face cream, relaxing music, hot towel?” Sure sign me up!!! Well folks… I had no idea what I agreed to!!!!”

Tarek went further, telling the story of the facial that seemed to cause him more pain than he ever expected.

“They first scratched my face then stabbed it hundreds of times with needles,” he wrote. “Most painful thing ever!!! It was filmed and will show in season 8!! Now that I’m looking all sexy, who wants to go on a date with this face tonight?”

From the sounds of it, the experience will be shown again during Season 8 of their HGTV show, that actually is doing better than ever when it comes to ratings. In fact, since the show’s return back on May 31, the ratings have been up 15% from the prior season.
