Could it become America’s new expression?

Possibly — if Brad and Heather Fox’s new HGTV series, “Stay or Sell,” becomes a hit.

“I’m Minnesota born and raised,” Brad says, “but I never thought I had a Minnesota accent.”

Social media disagrees — and lets him know.

“Apparently, every time someone needed to walk by me, or I was in the way, I said, ‘Ope!'” Brad says. “Constantly.”

“It’s so funny,” says Heather.

Wait, do we say that? Is “Ope” to Minnesotans what “Eh” is to Canadians?

Tune in at 8 p.m. on Tuesdays and count the “Opes” as Brad and Heather help families decide whether it’s time to move or renovate.

It’s not just for show, though: The couple, through Minnetonka-based Fox Homes, really does help people buy, sell, design, remodel or build homes. The Minnesota business was “discovered” a few years ago.

It almost wasn’t a connection, though.

“Brad hung up on them,” says Heather.

“I thought it was a scam,” says Brad.

It wasn’t.
