This will come as shocking and sad news for fans (and for HGTV), but Chip and Joanna Gaines have announced the upcoming season of their smash hit show “Fixer Upper” will be their last. The show has made the couple into beloved TV stars, wealthy entrepreneurs, and easily the most famous couple in Waco, Texas. So why walk away at its peak? Because unlike many celebrities, they know that some things are more important than TV stardom.
They say their family is healthy and their marriage has never been stronger. But their lives aren’t led by fame, money or pop culture, they are led by Jesus Christ. They said, “This is just us recognizing that we need to catch our breath for a moment. Our plan is to take this time to shore up and strengthen the spots that are weak, rest the places that are tired and give lots of love and attention to both our family and our businesses."
I’m sure all their fans wish them the best, even if they’ll miss the show. Here’s hoping they enjoy the rest and the time with their family, and will someday decide to return to TV if it again feels right for them. Television not only needs the kind of entertainment they offer, it’s in even more desperate need of role models like them.
