Chip and Joanna the Perfect Pair
20 May 2016 | by leavisavSee all my reviews

Chip and Joanna the Perfect Pair Do you have the guts to take on a fixer upper? You know the show we all love it Chip and Joanna are the perfect pair. Joanna has a background in real estate and interior design. Chip has a background in construction. Together they have created a show that takes the worst house in the best neighborhood and turns it into their client's dream home. It is called Fixer Upper. From there farm house to the houses that they build it is truly a masterpiece, that in my opinion can be called the best TV show ever. I love the exterior to the interior adventures that they take you on from the very beginning of the show from picking the house to the finished product it truly a very interesting adventure. Let's talk about the beginning of the show. It always starts out with Chip Joanna and their family at their farm house. It is fun to see them in a real life setting, although it does seem a little sugar coated. I wish that it could be a little more realistic in showing their real day to day lives. It is nice to see that they have an order to the show but on the other hand though It can sometimes put you to sleep because you know what is going to happen next. In the very beginning when the customer is introduced I wish that they could make it a little more interesting by saying just a little bit more about themselves, so that you can connect with them better. I also wish that Chip and Joanna could show you how they picked the 3 houses to show to their customer so that you could feel that you were a part of that process as well. When Chip and Joanna meet the customers they are always so nice and friendly to everyone it makes you feel like you are their friend. It is so cool how they invite the customer into their own home it makes everything seem more real. What's Today! Demo Day! I absolutely love demo day it is one of my favorite parts of the show. It is so fun to see Chip and his gang completely gut the entire house. One of my other favorite parts of the show is when Joanna gets to pick out the floor the cabinets and the absolute best part the furniture. I absolutely love Joanna she is so creative and fun she is definitely the cherry on top of the entire show. Now we get to my absolute favorite part of the entire show. When they reveal to their customer their dream home that they have waited so long for. I love how they have a big canvas in front of the house reminding you as an audience member and the customer what it looked like before they started remodeling. Once everyone is ready they ask the customer "Are you ready to see your fixer upper?" Then Chip and Joanna pull back the canvas to reveal the amazing new house that awaits their customer. The houses no matter what shape or size they come in they always turn them into a masterpieces. It is so amazing to see the house go through such a dramatic transformation from when the customer buys it to when they have turned it into a dream home. Chip and Joanna are such a good team they are both so creative when it comes to remodeling and they have such a passion for doing it. Because of them so many people are able to have their dream home because of this show.

This is an amazing show and I love every second of it. It is everything that you need in a good TV show it's funny interesting and of course amazing and it is all because Chip and Joanna are the perfect pair.
