The cast of Netflix’s Selling The OC has finally been released, and with 11 more Oppenheim Group agents about to appear on the Selling Sunset spin-off, here’s what interested viewers should know about Gio Helou. Focusing on Jason and Brett Oppenheim’s Newport Beach office, Selling The OC was announced shortly before the first season of Selling Tampa was released last December. After months of anticipation, fans finally got their first look at the upcoming show following the Selling Sunset season 5 reunion.
As one of the four male realtors joining Selling The OC, Gio can be briefly spotted in Netflix’s new two-minute trailer. While the series of clips mostly shows off the female cast members and their upcoming drama, fans of the show can see Gio working at his Oppenheim Group desk before something shocking appears to happen towards the back of the room. Another split second in the Selling The OC trailer shows Gio shaking hands with an unseen person before declaring “I really just wanna show everyone that this is the level that I play in…and to not f*** with me.”
According to Gio’s bio on The Oppenheim Group website, the real estate agent was one of the first people to be asked to join the brokerage in Newport Beach. Before selling beachside properties in Southern California, Gio worked as a film producer, and in his spare time, he likes to check out fast cars and motorcycles. Before Gio makes his reality TV debut, which is slated to happen later this year, here’s everything else those interested in Selling The OC should know about him.
Gio Helou was born on March 20, 1988, which makes him 34-years-old. Astrology-wise, Gio sits right on the cusp of Pisces and Aries. Since Pisces’ are generally regarded as intuitive and emotional while Aries’ are independent and ambitious, these characteristics can be great for succeeding as a competitive realtor. According to Gio’s LinkedIn, the Selling The OC star began working in the luxury real estate business at 28-year-old in 2016 and joined the Oppenheim Group in February 2021.
Those interested in keeping up to date with Gio can follow his Instagram at @giovannehelou. Although the Oppenheim Group agent has less than 3,000 followers as of May 2022, there’s no doubt that this number will continue to rise as Selling The OC‘s premiere date grows closer. Besides showing off The Oppenheim Group’s luxurious listings, Gio frequently updates his Instagram followers with pictures of his personal life, including days out with friends and his collection of slick vehicles.
Like several Oppenheim Group agents, Gio is married; according to his wife Tiffany’s Instagram, the Helous tied the knot in August 2020. The couple frequently likes to travel, with the two recently enjoying a vacation at the Chileno Bay Resort & Residences in Mexico. Between having drinks in Laguna Beach, hanging out with fellow agents in Newport Beach, and selling properties in the Southern California region, Gio is someone to watch when Selling The OC airs sometime later this year.
