Joanna Gaines was on TV long before Fixer Upper, RadarOnline.com can reveal!
The HGTV star, 38, helped boost her dad’s business by starring in a commercial. The ad for Jerry Stevens Firestone ran locally in 2008.
Joanna was single at the time — and revealed in her book The Magnolia Story that Chip used the ad as a pickup line!
“I looked up at him, and before I could even answer he asked, ‘Wait, aren’t you the girl from the commercials?’” she wrote of their first encounter.
“’Yeah, that’s me,’ I said, still embarrassed ...” she continued. “I was, in fact, the girl from the commercials. I had some interest in television news. I had even done an internship with CBS In New York City, working under Dan Rather in the news division, and because of that my dad had insisted I go on camera for the local TV ads he ran for his shop.”
