9. 'Fixer Upper' Homeowners Don't Keep The Furniture
In other shocking Chip and Joanna news, viewers were surprised to learn that after Joanna expertly styles their homes, the homeowners on Fixer Upper have to give the furniture back.

According to Bustle, Joanna confirmed this herself in a 2018 "Magnolia" blog post: "Our show features real clients with real budgets. The furniture budget is not part of the renovation budget. It’s something some clients add at the end," she wrote. "About half of our clients already have all their own furnishings, some of which I use for the reveal, and others buy the items I decorate the home with." 

That post, however, has since been removed.
