Over the course of Fixer Upper's five seasons, fans got to see plenty of Clint Harp and his carpentry work for Joanna Gaines, but there were also tons of memorable moments that didn't make it onto the hit .
Apart from brainstorming sessions with Joanna, which made up most of his airtime, there were also tons of fun scenes with the couple, and even a few big fails on Clint's end.
While they didn't make it to the final cut, there were several times Clint built a piece for Joanna that did not meet her expectations. “Not everything worked right away in terms of the things that I was building for her,” he told . “It took some time honing the design and the look of what she was wanting and what I could deliver, and marrying those two things together.”
And though viewers got to see Clint and Joanna working with each other, they rarely saw Clint and Chip together—or their friendship beyond work. In fact, based on what we saw on the show, viewers would probably never guess it was Chip who first connected with Clint.
After meeting at a gas station, the two became fast friends and spent plenty of time together. They often grabbed lunch and "just sat down and talked and dreamed about what was maybe going to happen," Clint said.
“[Chip] is great to talk to," he added. "He’s one of those guys you want to sit down and have a beer with over some barbecue."
Fans also never got to see what it was like at the very beginning for Clint and his shop. There were times when Chip, Joanna, and their kids would stop by and apparently, Clint's workshop was so bare, it didn't have furniture for them to sit on.
“There was one time where we all sat down together, and our kids were at the shop with us," Clint said. "Chip, Jo, Kelly and I were just sitting on the floor of the shop eating, staring out the back looking at our kids [who were eating and playing], all of us kind of thinking like, ‘What the heck are we doing?’”
Now that Fixer Upper is over, Clint is still close with Chip and Joanna, and they continue to work together on projects. But with his very own spinoff show and a , it looks like he's doing pretty well on his own, too.
