If you're wondering how HGTV stars Chip and Joanna Gaines are doing now that their hit series Fixer Upper has ended, fear not: They're doing just fine, thank you very much. Just 24 hours after Joanna's cookbook hit store shelves, became the bestselling book — out of all books — on Amazon, becoming the third wildly popular title they've released so far.
Books are only one of the several ways the couple's earning money these days. Depending on which source you believe, Chip and Joanna Gaines's net worth is estimated to be between $5 million and $9 million (the former from , the latter from ). Those figures can be tough to verify, since the Gaines run so many businesses — and what they earn from each isn't exactly public knowledge — but it makes sense it'd be in the millions. Just keeping track of everything they produce is enough to make most mere mortals' heads spin.
There's Magnolia Homes, their construction company, which is headquartered in Waco, Texas, along with several other businesses they run: Magnolia Market, their home furnishing and decor store; , the bakery Joanna opened in 2016; Magnolia Seed & Supply, their garden shop; , the brunch restaurant the duo opened earlier this year; and Hillcrest Estate and Magnolia House, two houses you can stay in while visiting Waco.
But wait, there's more. The Gaineses also run Magnolia Realty, with agents all over Texas, and produce a quarterly magazine, The Magnolia Journal. That doesn't even touch on their myriad collections, which span rugs, pillows, throw blankets, wallcoverings, paint, furniture, and other accessories, like oversized clocks and "Magnolia" emblazoned mason jars. Oh, and there's their Hearth & Hand line for Target, as well as Joanna's upcoming design book.
With all of those projects — and raising four children, with a fifth on the way — the Gaineses aren't exactly sitting around twiddling their thumbs. Their empire is only just beginning, it seems.
