Where is Chip Gaines from?

Chip is originally from Albuquerque, NM, but when he was in third grade, his parents moved his family — which also includes older sister Shannon — to Colleyville, TX, a suburb of Fort Worth. They owned a flooring business in nearby Lewisville, where Chip honed his carpentry skills. And the future TV star also earned money mowing lawns before graduating from Grapevine High School in 1993.

Where did Chip Gaines go to college?

With aspirations of baseball stardom, Chip played for a year for North Lake College in Irving, TX, and then transferred to Baylor College in Waco, TX. But he didn’t make the Baylor baseball team, according to The Dallas Morning News. “It was devastating. We were just all heartbroken,” his mother Gayle Gaines told the newspaper. “I thought we were raising the next great superstar baseball player,” his father Bob Gaines added. “Instead, I raised the next great father, husband, and businessman, and now he’s famous.”

Have Chip and Joanna Gaines ever split up?

As far as we know, this famous couple has been together ever since they met shortly after they both graduated from Baylor. As Chip revealed in his memoir, however, their relationship was once something of a Fixer Upper. When he was in his mid-20s, Chip went to Mexico for a three-month Spanish immersion program so he could better communicate with his employees. Joanna supported him… until two weeks into his vacation, when she realized he’d left her with a business in financial distress. That’s when Joanna laid down an ultimatum, per Today. “You have three days to get back to Texas or this relationship is over,” she told him.

What is Chip Gaines’ net worth?

At the moment, Chip’s net worth is around $9 million, as is Joanna’s, according to Celebrity Net Worth. That nest egg might take a hit now that Fixer Upper ended on April 3. But Joanna already has another HGTV project lined up, a spin-off show titled Fixer Upper: Behind the Design, which premieres on April 10. Plus, the couple has their booming Magnolia business in Waco, including one very sweet bakery.

Chip Gaines has been gracing our televisions alongside his wife, Joanna, on their HGTV show Fixer Upper for over four years. Viewers feel like they are close friends with the couple after tuning in each week, but how well does everyone really know Chip’s backstory? Here are a 13 facts about one-half of our favorite house flippers.

Y’all are AWESOME! Thank you for all the birthday wishes. Stick around…I’ve got something up my sleeve. #42

Chip was born on November 14, 1974 (which also makes him a Scorpio). He is four years older than his wife, who is 39. In the video above, posted in 2016, Chip made a few self-deprecating jokes on his 42nd birthday. “I never thought I was going to even reach 30, and here I am at 42 years old … fatter than ever,” he quipped.

His height is approximately 5’10”.

@Mommy2Doodlebug HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! -love chip.. The guy from #fixerUpper. Chip Gaines. Tall, abt 6’3″.. Handsome! Just forget it.

— Chip Gaines (@chipgaines) March 15, 2016

Although Chip likes to joke that his height is 6 feet 3 inches tall, several websites have reported that he is just under 6 feet. His actual height has not been confirmed.

But we don’t know about his weight.

Although Chip once shared with his followers how upset he felt when he saw himself on television, we’re not sure how much he exactly weighs. “Watching myself on TV is really sad.. cause I look chubby and maybe that’s because I am chubby. But I’m just happier not knowing it, you know,” he wrote on Twitter. Cheer up, Chip. Remember, the camera adds 10 pounds!

He has been married to Joanna for 14 years.

Chip’s HGTV bio also states that the Gaines have lived in Waco for 10 years. Chip is originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, and was raised in Dallas, Texas. He first moved to Waco for college.

He went to Baylor University.

He graduated from Baylor University’s Hankamer School of Business with a marketing degree and launched several small businesses afterwards, including a laundry service, a fireworks stand, and multiple landscaping companies.

He is a published author.

“Writing this book got me thinking a lot about the various people who were part of the runway for me and my career, and i want to be that type of inspiration for you—a starting place for your dream to take off,” Chip said on Instagram of his book Capital Gaines: Smart Things I Learned Doing Stupid Stuff. The New York Times best-seller was released in October. He also co-wrote a The Magnolia Story with Joanna to give fans a detailed look at their life together.

He is a man of faith.

A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.
By this everyone will know that you are set apart, if you love one another.

— Chip Gaines (@chipgaines) November 12, 2017

Chip and Joanna bonded over their religious beliefs in the beginning of their relationship. He told Fox News that his faith plays a very important role in his daily life. “For me, changed everything,” he said. “It’s a part of who I am. I can’t separate the two.”

He has a great head of hair.

He recently donated his red locks to St. Jude and was able to raise $230,092 for kids with cancer. But before chopping it all off, he was so adventurous with his hairdos that HGTV made this timeline of all the different styles he’s rocked on his reality show over the years.

He is head over heels about his wife.

Where’s Shorty? Chip Gaines Provides an Update on His Right-Hand Man Following Fixer Upper

Twitter/Saul Sanchez

If you’ve found yourself wondering what’s become of Saul “Shorty” Sanchez—Fixer Upper’s unsung, diminutive hero—since the HGTV hit came to an end, you’re not alone.

One particularly concerned fan recently reached out to the Gaineses on Twitter to inquire about Shorty.

“I really miss Shorty from Fixer Upper,” Courtney Podgorski wrote. “I hope he’s living his best life. @hgtv @joannagaines @chipgaines he must be protected at all costs.”

A quick scan of Shorty’s Twitter handle reveals that Chip’s right-hand man is still very much involved in the Magnolia empire.

In fact, as Chip explained in his book The Magnolia Story, the two were friends and working together long before Fixer Upper hit the airwaves. Shorty was actually one of Chip and Joanna’s first Magnolia hires.

“Some of these employees went way back with us, all the way to the beginning,” Chip wrote in the book, according to Good Housekeeping. “Most of the boys who’d helped me with my early flips were still around. You probably know a couple of them — Shorty and Jose — from the show. Without even purposefully trying, we’d created a Magnolia family.”

Chip and Joanna Gaines announce ‘Fixer Upper’ is done

Chip and Joanna Gaines have finished their last Fixer Upper. Season 5 of their popular HGTV home-renovation series, due in November, will be the final season for the show, according to a blog post on the Texas couple’s website.

Their message to fans reads: “It is with both sadness and expectation that we share the news that season 5 of Fixer Upper will be our last. While we are confident that this is the right choice for us, it has for sure not been an easy one to come to terms with. Our family has grown up alongside yours, and we have felt you rooting us on from the other side of the screen. How bittersweet to say goodbye to the very thing that introduced us all in the first place.”

It continues: “Though our Fixer Upper chapter is coming to a close, we aren’t done with Waco. We aren’t done renovating homes. We aren’t done designing things to make your home your favorite place on earth. … we are just getting started.”

The news comes after a lawsuit, accusing Chip of fraud, was filed in April by John L. Lewis and Richard L. Clark, his former Magnolia Realty partners. The lawsuit accused him of persuading his then-colleagues to sell their ownership stakes at Magnolia Realty before he was prominently featured on Fixer Upper. Lewis and Clark demanded more than $1 million and the return of their ownership stakes. Chip’s response at the time was that he was taken by surprise that friends who had his phone number decided to reach out to him with a lawsuit.

The Gaines’ HGTV series has contributed to the success of their Magnolia brand. They are best-selling authors and have a magazine as well. But don’t worry, fans: They don’t appear to be finished with TV either, their Tuesday message references the Fixer Upper spinoff Behind the Design, which focuses on how Joanna comes up with the designs for the homes they have renovated. Fans got a sneak peek of that show earlier this year. Their statement reads: “There’s so much good, new stuff coming your way!”

HGTV’s statement about the news backs the couple’s decision. “We’ve all been on an incredible journey with Chip and Joanna for five years. It takes a huge amount of time and creative energy to make a phenomenal series like Fixer Upper. We understand their decision to spend more time with their family. Like all of their fans, we want only the best for them and they know they will always have a home at HGTV.”

The couple’s farewell note Tuesday acknowledged their supporters, “We will forever be thankful for HGTV and this opportunity of a lifetime. We are also thankful to our production company, High Noon Entertainment and our amazing producers and crew on the ground here in Waco. We are grateful for them and for you.”

If Joanna Gaines is not a familiar name to you, then you may not be a great fan of design and decor. She has been a renowned designer for quite some time now. She has featured in the Fixer Upper, an American reality television series. The reality series talks about home design and renovation. Fixer Upper has been running on HGTV for quite a while now. Read on to Know Joanna Gaines Wiki.

Currently, the show boasts over 79 episodes on the channel. This adds up to 5 seasons on HGTV. The episodes have been running for 43 minutes. Fixer Upper is spearheaded by High Noon Entertainment, a renowned production company in the United States. Joanna Gaines has been working closely with her husband Chip Gaines, that is right up until season five. The couple announced they would not be airing any more episodes on Fixer Upper.

Why did Joanna Gaines leave Fixer Upper?

After over five years of being on the renowned reality TV show, Joanna and Chip Gaines quit featuring in Fixer Upper. The couple had various reasons for making this tough decision. Some of them include

Joanna Gaines with her husband Chip Gaines from Fixer Upper show

  • The couple needed a break

Working for over five years on a TV series may be too long for them. The couple also has several business ventures besides starring in the reality show. This may have led them to quit and take a break so as to avoid burning up. They have always worked tirelessly on the TV show. They have been consistent for the past five years without any breaks. This is enough reason for them to want to take a break.

  • The Gaines had their hands completely tied

Chip and Joanna Gaines have many business ventures. They have collaborated with various organizations relating to their line of work. Recently, they collaborated with the target for a lifestyle collection Hearth and hand with Magnolia.

They also have a real estate company which is doing very well. In addition to that, they are opening a restaurant and releasing a cookbook. These are some of the many ventures which the Gains are embarking on. Doing all these projects and appearing on TV may have been too tiresome for them.

  • Many of Fixer Upper homes are now rentals

Fixer Upper aims at transforming homes for their clients to live in. Instead of people living in those homes, some clients decide to rent them as vacation rentals. This was a great disappointment to Joanna Gains and her husband.

The couple aimed at renovating homes for families to live in and enjoy the new design. This also proves that Joanna Gaines does a very good job because for a client to rent his or her house as a vacation home, the house must be in good condition. Gaines was not impressed by what clients were doing.

They did not want the houses, which were turned into vacation homes. Recently Brock Murphy, who is a spokesperson for Magnolia addressed the issue. He said the issue on renting had been a concern to them and they look forward to finding a lasting solution.

  • Their children have been on the spotlight

Another major reason is that they do not want their children to be in the spotlight. Gaines’ children have been featured on TV for quite a while. They have also posted pictures on Instagram about how they do their designs.

Joanna Gaines said her children have been in the limelight for quite a while, and from a very young age too. She also added that they are being followed by paparazzi and are tired of living that kind of life.

  • The Gaines have security and privacy concerns

Joanna and Chip had some great concerns about their security. They said that people would drive by and stop next to their house. The Gaines family considered this a great security threat. Joanna said they were mostly concerned with the wellbeing of their children.

People would drive by and request them to take pictures. This was something very uncomfortable for them, and so they had to leave the TV series to live a normal life.

  • Spending more time with the family

This is one of the unique reasons why many celebrities leave the limelight of TV. The Gaines had to say goodbye to the TV series to have a stronger bond with their family. They were also involved in some other projects.

These projects are related to their home designs. The projects will not have a large impact on the family’s bonding compared to the show. Chip’s mother, Gayle Gaines, confirmed that the couple wanted to spend more time with their children during an interview with Closer weekly. She explained that having more time with her grandchildren is very important.

Ethnicity and Nationality

Joanna Gaines nationality is American. Joanna is not a Native American. His father is half Lebanese/half German. Her mother is full Korean. Joanna is proud of her ethnicity. Her heritage has shaped her into the person she is today and at no point has she regretted not having been a Native American.

Joanna Gaines siblings

Joanna has two sisters. The oldest one is Teresa Criswell, and the youngest one is Mary Kay McCall. Mary Kay is known to have the coolest nickname, as Joanna would put it. Joanna has referred her as “Mikey” in her media posts. All three sisters are lovers of plants. In Mary Kay’s Fixer Upper reveal, there were many plants in her home.

The sisters have also been spotted grabbing trees from both Joanna’s garden and Magnolia Market. When they have a get-together, the sisters are known to behave like kids. They behave in a silly good way, which is fun for them. Teresa runs an inspirational YouTube show.

Criswell posts about healthy mother-daughter relationships on Instagram. She also writes faith-based posts and lifestyle on her blog triumphant, victorious reminders. A unique fun fact is that Joanna and Mary Kay were both pregnant at the same time.

The McCall’s told Joanna and Chip that they were expecting a child before the house reveals of Mary on the episode. After the episode aired, The Gaineses announced their pregnancy. This proves that both Joanna and Mary Kay were both pregnant at the same time.

The sisters, Mary and Joanna, are considered lovers of big families. Joanna has currently five kids while Mary has six children. The sisters are the real definition of real beauty. Teresa posted pictures of them at a very young age, and when you read the captions that come with them, they are admirable.

Another fun fact is that Fixer Upper Joanna Gaines designed Mary Kay’s home on one of the show’s episode. Mary was moving back to her hometown after nine years of being away. The new house was designed perfectly for the growing McCall family who recently welcomed a new child. Joanna said that the house that she designed was her all-time favorite.

She wrote in her post that she was very excited for their return to Waco after nine years. Joanna was also greatly honored for having the chance to design and feature her sister’s house on the TV series. All in all, the three sisters have a deep love for each other. This is despite the fact that people often think she undermines her siblings.

Joanna Gaines furniture and designs

The design patterns for Joanna’s furniture are unique and of high quality. You may ask yourself where the furniture comes from. The furniture is most likely made in China and Vietnam.

It is then shipped to the standard furniture manufacturing distribution facility in Bay Minette, Alabama. Joanna has the showcase in silos at the Magnolia market. Her approach to design furniture and homes is of high cognitive.

No one can deny that the designer’s art piece in furniture shines in every detail. Back in 2012, Chip and Joanna bought a farmhouse which was far too small for the large family. The attic was completely unfurnished, but the couple did not care that much about it.

Joanna Gaines and husband Chip loved the land that came with it, plus the surrounding nature. It took them 18 months to fully design the farmhouse. The exterior of the house has remained traditional with a white finish that perfectly flows with the wooden beams.

The entrance of the farmhouse has stunning double doors which lead into an airy hall that has been wonderfully decorated in grays and whites.

Joanna Gaines furniture and design

The Gaines ensured that the house looked great. They did so without having to change a lot. They restructured the layout. The kitchen is no exception. The white tiles flow with the black fixtures and fittings and the painted wooden ceilings.

On the other side of the house, you will find the diner and lounge. The dining room is large enough to accommodate the Gainers. The lounge has a perfectly designed couch that they can all fit on. Every accessory has been perfectly made to flow with everything else in the room; hence nothing seems out of place.

This is one of the major reasons the Magnolia market is a very popular place. Joanna sells similar furniture and accessories. The lounge of the farmhouse is both beautiful and functional. Chip ensures that the house flows in terms of structures while Joanna is the beauty behind the designs.

Final touches of the house are just admirable. Ornate lamps, the vase of flowers brightening up the room just make the home to die for. These are some of the accessories found in the Magnolia market both online and offline.

Her home is the perfect advertisement for the design structures of furniture and accessories. I would say that the house was designed out of love. This is seen in Joanna’s Instagram page where the Gaines’ family post pictures of the white and black photos of the family. These are just some of the many unique designs that Joanna has made.

Joanna Gaines business venture

The Gaines’ business venture began back in 2003. This was years before Chip and Joanna hit the television show. The first business venture was called Magnolia market nicknamed as the “little shop on Bosque”. The shop had very humble beginnings.

It is where Joanna’s career began. Here she harnessed and developed her skills on design. With time, she gained much confidence in herself and the Magnolia market. Magnolia store stated in 2003. The store focused on selling decor, houseware and clothing accessories. The venture was thriving up but the couple had to close down the business.

Chip and Joana Gaines wanted to raise their children right, and without several commitments holding them back. The Gaines wanted to build their construction business, Magnolia homes.

Joanna Gaines Magolina homes

The couple faced criticism for having placed their family first. But they were just prioritizing their children’s needs, and this is something every parent should do. In 2014 after about 10 years of amicable experience at Waco where they changed homes, Fixer Upper came to be.

Fixer Upper the inspiration to Magnolia’s return. The same year the couple reopened that little shop in Bosque. Joanna had a scribbled business plan which later made the small venture become an empire. The empire came to be when they moved Magnolia from the Bosque location to a larger location in Waco known as The silos. In 2015 Magnolia market was born.

The silos are more than a single shop. The open ground has been converted into an open area for families to play and gather. The shop has employee offices and serves as a mall for all modern farmhouses.

There is also a massive stage where Magnolia massive stage where annual parties are hosted. In 2018 Gaines opened Magnolia table which serves as a breakfast restaurant and also one can have lunch and dinner. This was the place where Joanna celebrated her 40th birthday.

Joanna Gaines skin care

Rumors have been speculating that Joanna has recently opened a skin care business. These rumors were dropped down by the Magnolia official page. On 5th November 2018, an article was published by Magnolia.

The article said that people should only receive information about Joanna Gaines’s ventures from their official page. The rumors about Joanna skin care was false. The page also added that they were working closely with FBI to track down people who spread the rumors.

Joanna Gaines Wiki-Bio

Joanna Gaines was born in Wichita, Kansas in 1978. Joanna’s parents met in Korea where her father, Jerry was serving overseas during Vietnam. This is according to The Magnolia story. Jerry fell in love with Nan, Joanna’s mother and later came to America where they got married.

The couple had different beliefs in terms of religion. Jerry had been raised Catholic while Nan was brought up in Buddhist Korean. Despite their differences in religion, Joanna was brought up in one faith. The parents lived in harmony and at no single time did they engage in arguments, as Joanna would put it. The couple moved into Jerry’s hometown, Wichita.

There the couple welcomed three daughters who were each a quarter Lebanese, a quarter German and a half Korean. The family kept moving from one town to another due to Jerry’s job. Jerry worked with Firestone at that time. The moving was difficult for Joanna.

It led to transfers to different schools. This led to kids starting to notice that she did not look like them due to her biological background. Most people concluded that she was half Korean by just looking at her and this led to kids to start picking on her because of it.

Joanna Gaines with her husband Chip and with their kids

She was a victim of lunchtime bullying. Bullying was so intense for her that she started hiding and eating in another room with a smaller group of kids. Eventually, things got sustainable for her. Later on, another move saw Joanna attend a larger public school. The same fears that plagued her resurfaced. It was so intense that Joanna ended up hiding in the bathroom stall most of the time.

Other times, she would go home at lunchtime to avoid further interactions with her classmates. A lasting solution was found when the family finally settled in Waco, where Joanna was able to make some good friends. Surprisingly, Joanna was voted as her high school’s homecoming queen.

The same year she started to embrace and accept her culture. Joanna Gaines began to see how beautiful her mother was. At times she wanted to people to know that her mother was different and unique. This meant that she was not embarrassed about her ethnicity.

Joanna’s challenges and her moving to New York eventually helped her find her purpose in life. She gained confidence purposed to help women who were looking for guidance and were lonely. She felt that she can help people who had undergone the same pain she went through as a child of different ethnics.

Currently, she is a big inspiration to women through her designs and her words. Joanna Gaines has also urged her children to reach out to other kids who seem to have low- self-esteem and are in need of friends to help them push through.

If there’s anything better than enjoying a very lucrative career running a successful business, that could be getting an own show for demonstrating that. Chip Gains is a businessman and a reality television personality best known for the HGTV series Fixer Upper. He is not the only one into the business, though, as his wife has been by his side since the time they started the company. They are the owners of the Magnolia Homes in Waco, Texas.

Chip’s Personal Life; Father Of Five!

The most important thing of all above the successful life and career is his wife, Joanna, a partner and inspiration all along his run towards the beautiful future. The couple has been together since the college days. He and his spouse, Joanna, met each other in Waco, Texas.

Although he had been running different businesses at the time, it was after his marriage with his girlfriend that he focused on the personal life side-by-side. The actual date when they got married is unknown.

Chip then realized that he completely forget that he had a son to look after and went on to the store leaving his eldest child alone. He admitted that Drake was so quite, he forget that he had a son.

Another similar instance Joanna shared was when she was on a long jogging. She found Chip in a Truck who was on his way to office. He waved his hand and said Joanna that she was doing good with her work out. Joanna later realized that the baby seat at the back was missing, only to notice that he left Drake again.

Business Beginnings

Gaines along with his future wife Joanna, started investing in properties located in the Baylor area and he established his own company called Trinity Properties, constructing and designing houses based on their clients’ preferences. Eventually, he decided to leave his company to start working for his wife’s company called Magnolia Homes, which began as a store selling various home accessories, before focusing more on design and construction. Their focus then went to helping clients locating dream homes, using undervalued properties to help maximize the budget. The couple themselves then started house flipping, which is the act of buying houses at a low price, renovating them, and selling them for a profit. Their popularity in construction and design attracted attention, and the couple decided that one of the next steps to help promote their business was through television.

Fixer Upper

In 2013, the couple aired the pilot of their reality television series entitled “Fixer Upper”, which focuses on home design and renovation. The show’s pilot proved very successful, and they began their first full season the following year. The show would run for a total of five seasons until 2017, produced by High Noon Entertainment, also responsible for the cooking show “Cake Boss”. The couple is seen working with clients in terms of buying and remodeling homes, working on over 100 homes in the series. Usually they couple three potential homes to choose from in central Texas, each requiring repair or renovation. Once a home is chosen, Joanna focuses on the design while Chip works as the lead contractor. They usually have an overall budget of $200,000 with $30,000 that will be spent on renovations. The show became highly successful and gained the couple a lot of popularity. However, in 2017 the couple decided to end the show, as they wanted to focus more on their children as the show was taking-up too much of their time. Still, in 2018 they launched a spin-off series entitled “Fixer Upper: Behind the Design”, which features Joanna and how she comes up with the designs seen in “Fixer Upper”.


In 2017, with the popularity of “Fixer Upper” at its peak, former business partners of the couple filed a fraud lawsuit alleging that the couple persuaded them to sell their business interests in Magnolia Realty without disclosing plans that they were working on a television show, therefore monopolizing its gains. Chip’s attorney Jordan Mayfield appeared on air at the CBS television station KWTX-TV and stated that the lawsuit was meritless, saying that it was disappointing to see people trying to take advantage of hard working people and the success of others, referring to the Gaines’ success.

Prior to the couple ending “Fixer Upper”, reports were floating around that there was tension with the family and that they were heading to divorce, mainly due to the pressure mounting from the show and their ever increasing business empire. They also had their fifth child, meaning that they had to give some time to raise the baby. They also had issues with the US Environmental Protection Agency, after allegedly breaking guidelines for remodeling on “Fixer Upper”. With all of these issues around them, Chip and Joanna decided that the best thing to do to move forward was to let go of the television show, to give more time for everything else.
