Chip Gaines’ Incredible Transformation

Unless you’ve lived under a rock for the last seven-ish years, you know precisely who Chip Gaines is. The house-flipper-turned-entrepreneur-turned-network executive has been on people’s radars since his early days on HGTV, capturing the hearts of viewers everywhere due to his fun-loving personality and hilarious stunts.

Husband of designer extraordinaire Joanna Gaines, Chip served as her resident demolition guy, and he would often (with the help of sidekick Shorty) turn Jo’s home designs into realities. With time, the couple’s hit HGTV show, “Fixer Upper,” launched their careers in a way that even they probably didn’t expect.
