HGTV Premieres Fixer to Fabulous set in Arkansas


Jenny and Dave Marrs are what we refer to in the South as “the real deal.” Jenny radiates charm and kindness when she walks into a room and Dave’s heart for people and community is apparent from the first time you meet him. And, that is truly who they are. I could not think of a better couple to represent Arkansas in a new HGTV show than they do. Mark your calendar, put sticky notes up all over the house, or set a reminder on your phone because Fixer to Fabulous is premiering Tuesday, Oct. 22, at 8 p.m. Central.

HGTV defines the show as:

Dave and Jenny Marrs embrace small-town America by renovating classic homes in and around their hometown of Bentonville, Arkansas. This resourceful and creative couple transforms historic houses in desperate need of an update and turns them into charming forever homes.

For years, Dave and Jenny have specialized in the renovation of historic homes. They even live in a restored home near Centerton they rescued from downtown Bentonville. Originally from Florida and Colorado, they’ve lived in northwest Arkansas since 2004 and have spent the last couple of years cobbling together a farm life in bits and pieces. Oh yes, there is even a llama. Dave works as the builder while Jenny supports the design and restoration side of the business behind the scenes. And, they have five of the cutest kids you have ever seen.

They also own a u-pick farm,  The Berry Farm, with 1500 plants where local families are able to enjoy the experience of filling their own buckets with fresh, local berries (or nabbing a pre-picked, ready to grab, heaping pint). But the real mission of The Berry Farm is a domino effect rippling from northwest Arkansas to Zimbabwe, where profits will support vocational training, farming skills and food for orphaned children. Learn more about Feed Their Tummies, an organization the Marrs founded after falling in love with a little brown-eyed girl halfway around the world who can now be found chasing sheep and dogs with her siblings at The Berry Farm. There is a lot of material in all that for a show!

So Arkansans, let’s tune in and support this family who has selflessly supported so many. There is one season with 10 episodes planned so far. Watch LIVE because it will rate better. Get your popcorn ready and cheer on an Arkansas couple that truly is THE REAL DEAL.
