Chip Gaines is the cofounder of Magnolia, a home and lifestyle brand based in Waco, Texas, which he started with his wife, Joanna, in 2003. Born in Albuquerque and raised in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, Chip graduated from Baylor University’s Hankamer School of Business with a degree in marketing. An entrepreneur by nature, he started and sold many small businesses before the world came to know him and Joanna through HGTV’s Fixer Upper. He is the author of two New York Times bestsellers, The Magnolia Story and Capital Gaines: Smart Things I Learned Doing Stupid Stuff. This October, Chip and Joanna return to television with the launch of the Magnolia Network.
