About the Show

The first rule of real estate is location, location, location, but what happens when a buyer's only option in the right location is a house with dreadful design and a clunky layout? We say buy it — then fix it! Fixer Upper pairs renovation, design and real estate pros Chip and Joanna Gaines with Waco/Dallas, Texas-area buyers to renovate the wrong house that's in the right location.

Couple Pursues Elusive Neighborhood Where Residents Never Leave

Rachel and Andrew Erwin are asking Chip and Jo to find them a home in the Viking Hills neighborhood where 'for sale' signs are rare. It's a place where people live but never leave. But the Gaines are determined to find the young family their dream home showing them three houses that are as diverse as Rachel's taste. Rachel likes a rustic feel with a delightful contrast of pops of color. Andrew wants space inside and out to accommodate his towering physique and his passion for the outdoors. Will they pick the stately colonial house with the wagon wheel light fixture, the split-level retro with the strange bathroom or the claustrophobic house loaded with louver doors? The Gaines have their work cut out for them, but Chip keeps it fun finding ways to lighten up Jojo's sometimes serious side - this time clothed in some daring duds.

Professor and Family Crave Country Climate

Chip and Joanna Gaines are looking for a home in Northern Waco for clients Devon and Hannah Jonklaas. The Jonklaases want a home that offers lots of acreage and lots of bedrooms for their growing family. Devon, a biochemistry professor, would like to be closer to work and not too far from Hannah, who's expecting their third child. Chip and Jo show them a range of fixer uppers each with its own unique style and challenge. Will they choose the 1965 traditional covered in lime green carpeting, the lovely move-in ready with insufficient bedrooms, or the neglected farmhouse with lots of acreage that Devon says should be surrounded by crime tape? The challenges escalate when the Gaines' mini-inspection reveals some unusual damage by an unexpected antagonist adding a 3,000-dollar sting on the Jonklaas' tight budget. Has Mother Nature gotten the upper hand or will the Gaineses be able to tame the beast?

Searching for a New Homebuilder's Dream Home in an Old Neighborhood

Chip and Joanna Gaines take Genny and Russ Davis on a tour through three homes in Woodway, Texas.

Will the Davis' choose the "Tree House" with the pool, massive fireplace and monster tree blocking the front door? Or will it be the asymmetrical "Stonehenge House" Chip says looks like an airplane and Russ describes as over-the-top masculine? Or maybe they'll choose the third house with the shared driveway on a quiet cul-de-sac? The drama escalates when an unexpected permit problem costing 30,000 dollars threatens to turn this fixer upper into a flop. Will the Davis' jump ship and build a new home instead?
