How Did Clint Harp Meet Chip and Joanna Gaines?
Prior to becoming a TV personality, Clint worked in medical sales. Though he was earning a hefty salary from his full-time career, his heart was telling him to pursue his passion for woodworking. In 2011, he quit his job and moved to Waco, Texas, with his wife, Kelly Harp, in the hopes of starting a new chapter.
The handyman tried to reach out to Chip for a job at his construction company, Magnolia Homes, but his phone calls went unanswered. During a quick trip to the gas station one day, Clint approached a man who was driving a Magnolia Homes company truck. The man turned out to be Chip, who invited Clint to hang out with him around town. The rest was history! They filmed the pilot for Fixer Upper just a few months later.
