Chip and Joanna Gaines are a breath of fresh air to the television realm. Their series, Fixer Upper, has become one of the most beloved shows on television right now. Fixer Upper follows Chip and Joanna as they help couples find and renovate run down homes in Waco, Texas. Along the way, you get to see everything from demolition to the reveal of the homes to the families. The show's popularity has not only grown because of the amazing final product of the homes, but also the endearing and loving relationship of Chip and Joanna. Unlike families like the Kardashians and recently broken up Tarek and Christina El Moussa from HGTV's Flip or Flop, Chip and Joanna's relationship is based on their faith and their love and respect for one another.
These love birds have made their own little empire in Waco, Texas. Their empire includes a home design store, Magnolia Market, a bakery, and a bed and breakfast. This town sure owes a whole lot to Chip and Joanna. Thanks to Chip and Joanna, people from all over the country travel to Waco, Texas just to go to their shop, Magnolia Market.
While inching forward to the end of Season 4, Joanna Gaines announced on Instagram that their new show, Behind the Design, would be coming out this year. This show focusses solely on the details of the design process when renovating the homes on the show.
