This Hilarious Parody Reimagines ‘Fixer Upper’ as a Parenting Show

A lack of ketchup almost derailed the whole project.

Chip and Joanna Gaines are most famous for being the hosts of the HGTV show Fixer Uppers where they give potential home buyers three different housing options and fix up the one that they pick. But in a new parody video, the pair instead host a show called Fix Her Supper in which the main goal is to find something that their very young daughter will actually eat.

The hilarious part is that on Fixer Upper, there’s often so much to say about the renovation they’re making, but in the video, it just feels like two parents auditioning to host a reality television show. While they’d love to talk about anything else, there is just not enough time or energy to do it in a way that doesn’t center their kids.

“We’re mom and dad, and we take the pickiest eater and do the best we can to make our child’s dream meal. Do you the guts to fix her supper?” the two can be heard saying at the beginning of the video.

My wife wanted her own HGTV show so we compromised and I got her her own HGTV show.

Hilariously, Joanna is seen feeding Chip some pasta and spaghetti sauce at the onset of the video, but when they lay out exactly what they’re going to try and make for their daughter, the options were much simpler. It’s almost like they knew that explaining the very marginal difference between noodles dipped in cheese and noodles in a soupy red sauce was going to be too much for their kid.

It came down to Kraft mac and cheese, “Winner winner, because it’s a chicken dinner,” and the “last resort” aka a bowl of Cheerios. Though their daughter picked the simple chicken dinner, the Uppers did hit a mid-episode crisis. There was no ketchup, something any parent will tell you can be a real deal breaker.

She did still ‘eat it,’ even if she only took three bites after calling it just okay. But even that minor victory was enough to leave her parents feeling like they’d won the day.
