Chase Looney From 'Fixer to Fabulous' Recalls the Tragic Accident That Cost Him His Left Eye


How do you replace Chip and Joanna Gaines? Well, you can’t — but HGTV is certainly trying to fill the void left by the beloved duo with a new show called Fixer to Fabulous. The series follows husband and wife team Dave and Jenny Marrs as they renovate homes in northwest Arkansas.  

Like Fixer Upper, it features a go-to carpenter who takes on special projects. For the Marrs, that man is Chase Looney. After getting numerous questions about why he wears an eyepatch, the father of two wrote a blog post detailing the accident that caused him to lose his left eye.

What happened to Chase on Fixer to Fabulous?

The handyman, who also worked as a firefighter for many years, revealed that he was seriously injured just days after filming the Fixer to Fabulous pilot back in 2017. It was Fourth of July and Chase helped set up the fireworks display.
