‘Bachelorette’ Couple JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers May Become TV’s Next Chip and Joanna Gaines
Chip and Joanna Gaines may be on to new ventures since their long-running and much-beloved HGTV series, Fixer Upper ended, but that means there is room for new couples to show what they can do when it comes to home renovation.
In fact, one super cute Bachelorette couple who are masters at home transformation may be super familiar to fans of the Bachelor Nation. Here’s a look at why they may already be in line to get their own show (page 8).
A shared hobby
Bachelorette couple JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rodgers might have what it takes to become the new Fixer Upper couple. Long before she met Rodgers, Fletcher was a boss when it came home renovation. She was pleasantly surprised that her sports commentator beau shared her love for real estate.
The former Bachelorette told Today, “I have always loved doing what I do, but it’s been so much more fun having Jordan around to help out and bounce ideas off of. Being able to do what I love with the person that I love is so rewarding to me. He definitely makes those long demo days a little more entertaining!”
Where do they stack up?
Fletcher and Rodgers have reportedly spent a lot of time away from the television cameras getting to know one another and flipping houses. So ould they really become the next Chip and Joanna Gaines?
We wouldn’t be surprised to see them with their own HGTV series sometime soon. But do they have the same charisma as the Fixer Upper couple? They do share a lot of qualities with the Gaines couple.

A Gaines by any other name
What makes the Gaines so lovable? There are almost too many reasons to count. What really draws audiences to them is their apparent love for one another, and their ability to maintain a genuine, goofy connection both on and off camera. They also share a passion for renovation and real estate.
Luckily, it seems like Fletcher and Rodgers might have some of the same qualities. Like the Gaines, they are family oriented, active, and adventurous in their efforts.

Just as Rodgers and Fletcher are taking their time to get to know one another before jumping into marriage, they are very deliberate about the details and effort that they put into their renovations. The Dallas native revealed to Today Home what her mindset was as she worked on one home in particular.
She said, “Anytime I am renovating a home, I always try to keep in mind who I think would end up in it. This home felt like the perfect family home to me. I wanted to open the space up, yet keep it ‘homey’ at the same time.”

The magic of a vision board
Fletcher is obviously a go-getter. She joined the Bachelor Nation to take charge of her romantic life, and she approaches things in the same fashion with each home that she transforms. Her big secret when it comes to keeping her projects detailed and organized are vision boards.
She explained to Today, “Once we have that in place, demolition, new installations, plumbing and electrical, drywall, paint, flooring, etc. all goes in. Finishing touches such as hardware, landscaping and staging really get me excited as you get to see the house finally come together.”

The best room in a home
Who doesn’t adore food? We know we do. Fletcher and Rodgers know how important a kitchen can be to a family, especially since it often brings people together. It’s no wonder then that the kitchen is usually the former Bachelorette’s favorite room to remodel.
She went into detail about her latest project saying, “By opening up the kitchen and creating a large island, as well as adding the reclaimed wood floating shelves, it seemed like a space (where) everyone would gather and enjoy. The house came together so perfectly! It is the perfect mix between farmhouse and modern. It’s bright, fresh and clean.”

The hardest room to renovate
You might never have considered it, but mater bedrooms can be some of the toughest rooms to get just right in homes. They are super personal to the people who live there, and that puts a ton of pressure on the renovators and decorators.
Fletcher chatted about a difficult master bedroom on a recent project. She revealed, “I struggled the most with the master bedroom. The space was small, and there wasn’t a ton of wiggle room there. By adding the extra recess lighting, the barn door opening to the master bath and by opening up closet space, we were able to make this room feel bigger and more welcoming.”

Rumors of an HGTV show
Since they are such a cute couple and they clearly have impeccable taste, it would seem like a no-brainer for HGTV to offer the Bachelorette couple their own series or at least a special.
However, as of right now that’s all up in the air or “TBD” as Fletcher explained to Today.

The best renovation advice
Though she and Rodgers aren’t on HGTV just yet, that didn’t stop Fletcher from offering some spot-on renovation advice. She advised new home renovators, “Create a budget, discuss design preferences, compromise and try not to get overwhelmed through the process.”
She also added, “A few helpful tips to getting started is to know there are easy, quick fixes that make a big impact, like replacing hardware in your kitchen or bathrooms. You also don’t need to always replace the cabinetry. A little refinishing and a fresh coat of paint go a long way.”
