The Truth About Fixer To Fabulous' Dave And Jenny Marrs

When it comes to HGTV shows, there are a lot of great options to pick from. Some of the network's most popular shows include "House Hunters," "Fixer Upper," and "Property Brothers," but there are many more in circulation (via USA Today). There is so much home renovation content out there it can sometimes be overwhelming!

One of HGTV's latest hits, "Fixer to Fabulous," has been a popular show since it debuted back in 2019 (via TV Over Mind). The series is hosted by the real-life married couple and home renovation powerhouses, Jenny and Dave Marrs. Based in their home state of Arkansas, the show follows the couple as they work with real-life clients to turn their fixer-upper into their dream homestead.

While fans of the show have enjoyed watching the Marrs couple transform homes into their full potential, they've also fallen in love with the couple themselves. And although the Marrs family welcomes fans into their lives via their HGTV show, many might be unaware of what goes on behind the scenes.

Dave and Jenny Marrs been married for more than 15 years

It's no surprise that the Marrs couple has been able to make business and family life work for them, given their history. According to About You, the couple met at work back in 2002. Fresh out of college, they were both working for the same company, Newell Brands' Rubbermaid, but in different branches. Although Dave's role at the company had him traveling often, that didn't stop the pair from connecting — and the rest is history. The pair tied the knot back in 2005, meaning they've been together for more than 15 years!

After Dave decided to leave the company and pursue construction, Jenny took on the role of "sugar mama" (via House Beautiful). While Dave's new venture was a bit slow to get off the ground, Jenny kept working her sales and marketing job. As a result, she was the breadwinner. "We were broke, and I had a real job. He was just starting, so I was the 'sugar mama,'" Jenny joked to About You.

The Marrs' have their own blueberry farm

These amazing home renovators live in their own remodeled house, which is a farmhouse from 1906 (via House Beautiful). In a post from Jenny's blog, Blessings and Raindrops, she talked about how they became the owners of such a historic house. "This one walkthrough changed the course of our family's life. We would eventually take that old home, pick it up and move it to the outskirts of our little town. We would restore it and build our life inside those four walls," she said. "It would become the place where we would welcome our two daughters miraculously into our family and then the place we would renovate and expand once more after we outgrew the four walls with the arrival of our littlest man."

The couple doesn't just live in their farmhouse, but they've also taken on the roles of farmers! They have their own blueberry farm in Arkansas where the proceeds from blueberry sales go to the HelpOneNow program in Zimbabwe, which provides financial support to orphaned children in Africa (via Only in Ark). With the Marrs family, there's much more than meets the eye.
