Flip, who is mum about his net worth, revealed at the end of season 8 that he has worn the mask during the show was to hide his emotions of being sexually abused by his own father. He disclosed the painful experience in an interview with TooFab on June 2017:
“Growing up, one of the hardest things to talk about is sexual abuse and that’s something I went through as a young kid by my father of all people…”
He also added,
“I took off the mask as a symbol of embracing who I am because I’m proud of who I’ve become. I wouldn’t take what happened to me back because it made me who I am. I don’t have to hide behind the mask anymore and other people shouldn’t have to hide either. I’m going to have fun this season and hope for the best.”
Since he opened up about his traumatic experience, he appears to have inspired the bunch of people and encourage them to take action against it.
