Bristol and Aubrey Marunde- Flip or Flop Vegas
Bristol was born in Fairbanks, Alaska and grew up in an Air Force family that took him to Spokane, Las Vegas, and Sequim, Washington.
He worked his way through school painting houses, building fireplaces, and installing garage doors, skills that would serve him well for his future in home renovation. Bristol graduated from Washington State University with a degree in History.
His professional mixed martial arts career began in Atlantic City in 2006, and he has 18 victories in 28 fights. In 2011, Bristol was selected for UFC’s television show The Ultimate Fighter (TUF). Bristol has promoted over 30 fights in the Pacific Northwest through his fight promotion company, ReignFC.
Aubrey grew up in Milton, Pennsylvania, a small town outside of Philadelphia. Her family has been in the construction business her entire life, allowing her to spend years learning from her father, a general contractor for over 30 years.
At the age of 14 Aubrey was a gymnastics instructor, and by 19 she was the owner of a cheerleading gym. In 2001 she accepted a cheerleading scholarship from the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) to study Marketing.
Over the last 15 years, Aubrey has been able to refine her design process and develop a distinctive style that she calls “Vegas Glam”.
Aubrey has been a licensed real estate agent in Nevada since 2006 and has many satisfied real estate and design clients.
Aubrey & Bristol Marunde are the owners of Alter Luxury, a real estate brokerage and design+build firm in Henderson, Nevada, and they are the stars of HGTV’s hit home renovation television show, Flip or Flop Vegas.
Together, they renovated their first house in 2009, and have since completed over 140 homes in Nevada and Washington.
When Aubrey and Bristol are not renovating houses, designing their own line of home furnishing products, redesigning kitchens for their clients, promoting fights in the Pacific Northwest, selling luxury homes, filming the new season of Flip or Flop Vegas on HGTV, or training for the next MMA fight, they can probably be found in the wilderness, camping with their two young boys and recharging their batteries.

SLEEP IN HEAVENLY PEACE- Pre-Function Hall C
We are an organization that builds and delivers beds to children who do not have a bed. Our motto: "No kid sleeps on the floor in our town!"
There are so many great charities that provide clothing, meals and toys for families in need, but as wonderful as they are, little help goes to something as permanent as providing suitable beds and bedding for their children. Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a group of volunteers dedicated to finding those young children that do not have the luxury of sleeping on a bed or even laying their heads on a pillow. Through the wonderful efforts of volunteers and generous donations, bunk beds are built, assembled and delivered to those children who are otherwise sleeping on couches, blankets or even floors.
They will be doing 2 builds a day on show-site.
