Chip & Joanna Gaines Are Celebrating 10 Years Of Fixer Upper

Chip and Joanna Gaines’ home renovation show Fixer Upper premiered on HGTV in 2014. The show was a smash success, and the original series ran for five seasons.

Since then, several Fixer Upper spin-offs have been produced, including Fixer Upper: Welcome Home, Fixer Upper: The Castle, and Fixer Upper: The Hotel. Chip and Jo now have their own media network, The Magnolia Network.

This year, Chip and Jo are celebrating Fixer Upper‘s 10th anniversary with a brand-new show. Fixer Upper: The Lakehouse premiered on HGTV and the Magnolia Network on June 2.

The six-episode series follows Chip and Jo as they renovate a mid-century modern lakehouse near Lake Waco, Texas. HGTV describes the premise of the show as such:

From demo to design, viewers will follow the full transformation of the property throughout the season as Chip and Joanna go above and beyond with surprising interior designs and unique outdoor installations never before seen on Fixer Upper.”

Chip & Jo Tell Kelly Clarkson About Some Of The Weirdest Things They’ve Discovered During Renovations

Chip and Jo recently stopped by The Kelly Clarkson Show to discuss Fixer Upper: The Lakehouse. They also discussed their past projects and shared some of the strangest things they’ve ever discovered.

“For me, I remember in the wall of that one project, we found somebody who basically was the carpenter on the project, like 40 years before, and he put a note in this bottle and left it in the wall,” Chip shared. “And obviously, in theory, kind of like a bottle floating in the ocean to be found, sort of years later…and then we found this guy and brought him back and had him meet the family [who owned the home].”

Joanna was quick with her answer. “We found the bones in the castle. That was weird,” she said.

Chip joked how, after that discovery, they assumed the castle was definitely “haunted.” But they later learned the bones were “bovine” and, thankfully, not human.
