With so many home renovation shows to watch on HGTV, each addition to the network has to be unique in its own way. To audiences, there's definitely something special about Fixer to Fabulous. The husband-and-wife duo leading the show are Dave and Jenny Marrs. They work together to restore older homes into living spaces that are considered more modern and contemporary.

As a team, Dave and Jenny claim to have completed somewhere around 300 custom homes. There are a lot of positive things to say about the hardworking Arkansas couple and their vision for perfection. That’s why it was pretty shocking when fans learned that there has been more than one lawsuit filed against them. Here’s what to know.

What is the 'Fixer to Fabulous' lawsuit about? There are actually two reported lawsuits.

According to KNWA/KFTA, a lawsuit was filed in 2021 against the TV couple. Per court documents, Dave and Jenny — who apparently approached an Arkansas couple in 2018 and offered to renovate their home for Fixer to Fabulous — didn’t “maintain an Arkansas contractors license.” They also didn’t obtain “the required construction related permits from Benton county, Arkansas for the remodel to occur at the home."

The plaintiffs said they had to pay to fix the issues they had after the renovation and were asking the couple to come up with at least $75,000 in compensation. A judge dismissed the case in 2022, saying that the "plaintiffs have settled their claims and fully released the defendants from any and all claims the plaintiffs may have against them.”

While the 'Fixer to Fabulous' hosts' first lawsuit outcome was a settlement, the second lawsuit is currently ongoing.

Fast-forward to 2023, and Dave and Jenny were sued by another Arkansas couple. This couple claimed that they had to shell out more than $10,000 for repairs on their home that Dave and Jenny never completed, including "continuing hardwood floors in the upstairs bedrooms, installing a different kitchen sink, adding stairs and a handrail from the back deck to the yard, and putting windows in a top garage panel," KNWA/KFTA reported.

The couple also claimed to have several defects upon inspection of the construction.

This case is currently ongoing, with a five-day jury trial set to start on Sept. 23, 2024.

Dave and Jenny Marrs have appeared on several HGTV shows.

In addition to their regular hosting gig on Fixer to Fabulous (which was originally called Almost Home), Dave and Jenny have also appeared on HGTV's Rock the Block and Home Town Takeover. They've also hosted different spinoffs of their main show as well — Fixer to Fabulous: Welcome Inn, in which they renovated an 1870s home that became a bed-and-breakfast/Airbnb, and Fixer to Fabulous: Italiano, which saw the couple revitalizing an old villa in the Tuscan countryside.
