How did Joanna Gaines Make Her Money & Wealth?
Born on April 19, 1978, in Kansas, Joanna Gaines spent the majority of her childhood in Texas. After graduating high school, she went to Baylor University, where she studied communications. Upon receiving her bachelor’s degree, she landed an intern position in New York. In 2003, she married Chip Gaines, with whom she opened up a boutique later that same year.
In the end, it wasn’t until the 2010’s that she ventured into reality television. More specifically, she and her husband were given their own reality series, Fixer Upper on HGTV in 2013. Produced by High Noon Entertainment, it followed the two as they worked with various clients on buying and remodeling homes in Waco, Texas.
Well received, the show was eventually renewed for a second season after its initial run. Before she knew it, Gaines had become somewhat of a TV star, with a significant fan base. In the end, Fixer Upper ran for five seasons, the last of which wrapped up on April 3, 2018. Considering the show’s popularity, it’s not surprising to know they’ve earned a decent amount from it over the years. According to reports, the couple each made $30,000 per episode, which easily translates to ~$450,000 per season.
Just a week later, however, she and her husband began to star in a spin-off series titled, Fixer Upper: Behind the Design. As its name implies, the show offered viewers an inside look on how she’d come up with the designs on Fixer Upper. Premiered on April 10, 2018, it ran for fifteen episodes, before finishing on July 21, 2018. Unfortunately, it’s unknown whether or not they’d received the same salary for the sequel.
In terms of other television appearances, Gaines has been featured in several additional titles over the years including The Chew, The Insider, Extra, Celebrity Page, and HGTV Insider. For the past few years, she has also been making guest appearances on the news talk show, Today. As far as we know, however, she is currently not starring in any TV programs.
