The Property Brothers, J.J. Watt and More Celebs React to the End of Fixer Upper
We're not crying, these celebs are crying!
Fixer Upper has some famous fans — and they’re just as heartbroken to see the show go as the rest of us!
After Chip and Joanna Gaines’ hit series came to an end on Tuesday night, both hosts expressed their thanks to viewers for the support throughout the five seasons it was on the air. But the Gaineses weren’t the only celebs to post sentimental notes on social media.
Their fellow HGTV stars, Property Brothers’ Drew and Jonathan Scott, both sent their regards to the beloved duo.
“Wow how time flies when you’re having fun. I remember when we watched your first episode and told everybody Fixer Upper is gonna be a hit,” Jonathan wrote alongside a split photo Joanna had previously shared of her and her husband from their first and last episodes. “You guys have inspired so many and will continue to do so. Best wishes in the future.”
Drew chimed in too. “It’s been a fun run!” he captioned a video of Chip and Joanna walking off into the sunset. “Thanks @joannagaines & @chipgaines for inspiring a lot of families!”
Home Town’s Erin Napier, whose HGTV show with husband Ben has often been compared to Fixer Upper, reached out as well. “They changed the game and we are lucky to be part of the same network,” she said. “We are proud for y’all, Gaineses. Go get em!”
The cast and crew that have worked with Chip and Joanna over the years also got a little emotional over the finale.
“These two. What do you say,” executive producer Michael Matsumoto, who had his own home renovated by the TV stars, wrote on a family photo that included the Gaineses. “They started with one house and ended up changing a landscape. I’m proud to call #Waco my home.”
He continued, “On this very special night, I say thank you for all the memories and all the laughs. I wish this world could know all the fun it was making this. May there be many more laughs to come my friends.”
Carpenter Clint Harp, who Joanna often taps for her custom furniture pieces and was also a season one client, recorded this video alongside his wife, saying his goodbyes and announcing an exciting update of his own.
“Can’t believe it, Fixer Upper is coming to an end, unbelievable,” he said. “Bittersweet ending for us obviously because Fixer Upper is ending and then our show is coming on the DIY Network, Wood Work…I’m super excited about it.”
MxPx singer Mike Herrera, who was the lucky last homeowner for the series, also thanked Chip and Joanna for their “amazing work.” He added, “We made some of the best memories to get us started here in Waco!”
It was the Texans’ defensive end, J.J. Watt, though, who probably best put everyone’s thoughts into one heartfelt statement:
“Congrats on an incredible run @chipgaines & @joannagaines!” he said. “Thanks to you, I now know what shiplap is and I desire to participate in a demo day. Thanks for taking us along on the journey!”
