Season 5 / Episode 9 and airs on 24 January 2018 02:00
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, a hilarious married couple, with Waco/Dallas, Texas-area buyers to renovate the wrong house that's in the right location.
After living in New York for years, 37-year-old bachelor David Ridley is returning to his roots in Waco, Texas. His all-in budget is $272,000 and he wants to stay close to the Mountainview area because of its proximity to Lake Waco. Chip and Joanna are excited for the challenge of finding a home for the man they consider to be Waco's 'most eligible bachelor.' They take David on a tour of three spacious lakeside houses. The Red Roof House is the first house they visit, and David is taken aback by its funky and odd 1960s style. Their next stop Chip dubs the Bachelor Pad. The inside is wide open with high ceilings, perfect for hosting. The backyard is smaller than David was hoping for, but the inside of the house holds so much potential, he really has to weigh his options. The Peach House is last, clearly outdated and in need of some work.
Stacie and Ben Childers are soon-to-be empty nesters with one daughter enrolled at Baylor University and another hoping to follow in her big sister's footsteps. Moving from California, Ben and Stacie are looking for a home in Waco to not only be near their kids, but also give their daughters a place to escape the rigors of campus life. With an all-in budget of $175,000, the Childers would like to find a three-bedroom, two-bath house full of original detailing and shiplap. The first house they visit, Chip names the 'Beanstalk Bungalow' after the large seedpods that dangle from the catalpa tree in front of the house. Next, they tour the 'Doll House.' Very small and quaint, it lives up to its name. Last, they visit the 'Christmas Craftsman,' which Chip and Jo name after the green trim and red accents on the exterior of the house.
Ken and Kelly Downs are a recently wed couple looking for a home they can both call their own. They've outgrown Ken's small bachelor pad and hope to find a place that reflects both of their individual styles. With a budget of $250,000 in Waco, Texas, they are looking for a home with wood floors, an open kitchen, and his and hers office space. The first house they visit is the "Chalk Ranch House," named after the large chalkboard wall in one of the bedrooms. Kelly isn't a fan of the brick exterior, but she agrees that a little paint would be a great improvement. The second house, the "Cutie Tudor," is quaint and only needs relatively few updates. It already has a layout convenient for a large master suite, but the biggest project would be renovating the kitchen. The last house is a wild card that Chip throws into the mix. He calls it the "Three Little Pigs House" because it seems so old and weathered, a stiff wind could blow it down like the wolf in the children's folk tale.
Chip and Joanna are met with a pair of identical twins! Kaley Eggers is a single foster mom in the process of petitioning to adopt her young foster son. She is looking for a place to call her own, and hopes to find a home that would be an ideal environment to raise kids. She enlists the help of her twin sister, Lauren, and together they join Chip and Joanna on a house hunt in Waco, Texas. With an all-in budget of $170,000, Kaley is hoping for a 3 bedroom, 2 bath house with plenty of charm and a large backyard for kids to play.
Cody and Katie Messerall are raising a young family and are ready to move back to the home of their alma mater in Waco, Texas. With a total budget of $185,000, they are hoping to find a house with 3-4 bedrooms and a large backyard for the kids. They first meet Chip and Joanna at "The Chicken House." True to its name, the house has chickens in the backyard! The second house they visit is "The Outhouse," named for the toilet that stands ready to greet them on the front porch. Last they visit "The Wizard of Waco" house, likely one of the oddest houses in all of Waco.
In this season 3 finale of Fixer Upper, the Gaines have a lot on their plate! After months of hard work, it's finally time for the grand opening of the silos, and Chip and Jo prepare to throw a 'Silobration' for hundreds of fans in Waco. While they add the finishing touches, Chip and Jo revisit the new Magnolia Bed & Breakfast and realize that they are in desperate need of someone to help run the place! Rob and Marianne Ward are a retirement-aged couple that have always dreamed of running a guest home, and Chip and Jo are hoping they might be the perfect candidates for the job. The only catch is that in addition to running the B&B, the couple would need to be willing to live in the adjacent carriage house.
