HGTV’s Fixer to Fabulous was all about restoring historic homes in Bentonville, Arkansas, and the husband-wife duo, Jenny and Dave Marrs were the stars working the magic. But let’s not forget about the show’s construction manager Chase Looney, who is as much responsible as the leads to keep the show running.
Get to know him more as this Chase Looney Bio proceeds.
Is Chase Looney On Fixer To Fabolous?
Yes, Chase Looney was on Fixer to Fabulous. In fact, he was an integral part of the show, who had been with the casts since the beginning. However, as the seasons progressed, Chase definitely had his screen time reduced.
He first appeared in the inaugural season of Fixer to Fabulous in 2019 over the episode titled “From Craftsman to Creole Cottage.” Since then, he has had over 10 episodes to his name.
Chase Looney Wife
Chase Looney reportedly separated from his wife Chelsie Lamborn-Looney in early 2021.
According to Chelsie, it was Chase who screwed things up. “Accepting that it’s not you, it’s your ex-husband hurts beyond measure. Because if it’s you it can be fixed. When it’s him and he chooses not to change then it’s just time to leave,” she explained.
Also, Chelsie went on to share that Chase “refused to work” with her, and refused to “make an effort to love (her) back”.
Her definition of love was a “50/50 partnership” and not “a constant project to be fixing.” So, she had enough of Chase just walking in through the door and putting a “perfect partner show.” She wanted him to say no to” life’s temptations outside of the home” and love her instead of him “selfish desires.”
Guess, Chase failed her.
But this was only Chelsie’s side of the story. Let’s not be quick to judge the Fixer to Fabulouss star.
Chase’s estranged wife has already moved on and was dating the military man, Douglas DeMerritt in late 2021. She seemed to be happy then and was pursuing her love for makeup. Here’s her Facebook @chelsie.lambornloo, and IG @chelsielooney.
As for Chase’s kids, he shares two with his ex-wife Chelsie — a son named Landon, and a daughter named Lucy. His kids have been featured a few times over his socials.
Even though Chase and Chelsie have gone their separate ways, he still had her pictures over his IG (as of Nov 2021). And so did Chelsie. Her Youtube video “Gift Your Gift: 2020 DIY Gift Guide,” featured Chase with an eye patch on.
Fun Fact: On Christmas 2020, Chase gifted his son a real homemade knife for hunting made from one of the first deer he hunted as a kid with his dad. He wanted Landon to hopefully pass it down to his kids.
