AceShowbiz - It seems that Tarek El Moussa has successfully attained the ultimate revenge body. The "Flip or Flop" star, who was motivated to get fit after battling two cancers and recovering from debilitating back problems, shows off his sexy, ripped body in a shirtless-themed photoshoot with Lin and Jirsa wedding photography team.
The California-based photography team has released some photos of Tarek showcasing some serious muscle as he flexes and poses in front of the camera. The 35-year-old real estate agent himself has also posted on his Instagram account a photo taken from the sexy photoshoot.
"I shot this and was too embarrassed to share so I didn't...," so he captions the photo. "I know my journey has inspired many people so I made the difficult decision to post.. this is after battling 2 cancers and a debilitating back injury."
"My doctor said 'You would probably never be able to lift weights again'... that motivated me to prove him wrong and get into the best shape of my life!!!" he adds. "Thank you to my trainer @quintin_tucker for all the hard work and motivation and @pyejirsa for the amazing photos. Remember....it's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog..."
A source tells HollywoodLife.com that "showing off his hot body was Tarek's way of getting a little revenge on Christina," adding, "He wants to remind her how good he looks and he doesn't want anyone else to forget it either. He's scrambling to hang on to his fame and the show. He knows he has to push hard right now to get this show renewed and he's doing everything he can think of to keep all eyes on him."
"He's not putting all his eggs in one basket though, Tarek is secretly trying to get his own show too, in case 'Flip or Flop' gets cancelled," claims the insider. "He's meeting with power players in LA as we speak to get the ball rolling on a solo project as a backup plan."
Tarek's sexy photoshoot comes after his ex made headlines with a bikini photoshoot for a "Mommy and Me" swimwear campaign last week. The 33-year-old mother of two posted on the social media a series of photos featuring her flaunting her incredible figure in a minuscule bikini while playing around with her and Tarek's 6-year-old daughter Taylor.
