Million Dollar Listing Miami's Chris Leavitt: "My Guilty Pleasure Is Leaving Miami"

Reality TV cast members tend to have -- how to put this nicely? -- outgoing personalities. But it takes a special kind of exhibitionist to bare your ass on national television. Bonus points for doing so in the first five minutes of your new TV series' first episode.

Chris Leavitt is that guy.

Leavitt is one of three Miami real estate agents starring in Million Dollar Listing Miami, which premieres tonight at 9 p.m. on Bravo. He's also the guy who holds the record for the most expensive apartment sold in Florida's history at $34 million -- and its building hasn't even reached completion yet. Leavitt has resided in Miami for just five years and already, in addition to his resume of impressive, expensive deals, is an all-knowing being when it comes to spas, able to tell you where to get the best deep tissue massage from the Gables to Palm Beach. He talked to us about Miami versus the northeast, Manhattan transplants to Miami, and how he prepped his butt for its on-screen debut.
