Chip and Joanna Gaines Teach Jimmy How to Two-Step
-Chip and Joanna Gaines. We love you guys.
Thank you for being not only on our show
but on our big Texas show. -Yes.
-They love you. We love you. [ Cheers and applause ] I'm so happy you could join us.
You know I love you guys. You two are Texans. You live in Waco now, right? -Waco, Texas. Yes, sir.
-Waco, Texas. [ Cheers and applause ] That's where you did
"Fixer Upper." You both went
to Baylor University, right? -Yes, sir.
-In Waco. Is there —
There's a — Is there a big —
[ Laughter ] -Hey, hey.
-Is there a big rivalry? -Take it easy.
-Is there a big rivalry between U.T. and Baylor? -Well, Baylor University thinks
of our rivalry as a big rivalry. But I'm assuming
that the University of Texas thinks of it as maybe a little
bit of a smaller rivalry. [ Laughter ]
So you can imagine, you know — To speak in like a New York
native language, it's like The University of Texas
is the New York Yankees, and the Baylor Bears
are like the Oakland A's. So it's sort of a different —
different concept. -Yeah.
-All right. -Yeah, that's cool.
I mean, but do you have, like — Do you have like
"Hook 'em Horns"? Do you have that?
What do you have at Baylor? -We have our own version
of "Hook 'em Horns," and it's the "Sic 'em Bears." Any Bears in the crowd, we would
say, "Hey, sic 'em, Bears!" Something of that nature. -I think they like you.
-And it's like, "Arrr!" It's like "Arf!" -Yeah, they're not
really booing. -No. It sounded to me like,
"I love y-o-o-o-ou!" [ Laughter ] -I think that's what
they were doing, yeah. -Okay, all right.
All right. -I love that.
Well, I think U.T. is playing Baylor soon.
-Yeah. -Couple of weeks.
We are very excited. It's always a big, big time
to play the Longhorns 'cause they're such a big deal. And obviously, a big deal
for the State of Texas. But currently, the Baylor Bears,
our alma mater, our Baylor Bears, are 8-0,
number 12 in the country. -That's great.
Good, that's fantastic. [ Cheers and applause ] -And for that exact reason,
without further ado, I brought you a little, uh —
-Oh, shoot. -A little memento. [ Audience booing ] -Now, I know for a fact…
-Everybody, calm down. -…that was not,
"I love y-o-o-ou!" [ Laughter ]
No, I could feel it. I could feel that. I'll put this on when
there's security around me. Okay, yeah.
[ Laughter ] I've gotta say, I've been
having so much fun here. I couldn't wait to see you guys, 'cause you have
so much going on. You're starting
your own network. -Yeah.
-It's not like a show. You're starting your own network
next October. So, less than a year out.
-Sure. -Are you ready?
-Oh, my gosh. Remember last year
when he prematurely announced that we were having a network? And then Jimmy pulled us aside
when we were done and said, "Hey, are you serious?
That's gonna be a lot of work." And we were like,
"It's gonna be so much fun." And you're like,
"It's a lot of work." And now we're like,
"You were right. It's a lot of work."
-I told you. -But we're knee-deep in it
right now. And I think what we love
is just the idea of just finding amazing stories,
people who are passionate about what they do, whether it's
cooking, design, business. So, we're excited. This is a lot of fun
and a lot of work. -People just love you. I mean, it's such
a good combination. The chemistry's there.
You're smart, you're funny. You're creative.
Your book, by the way — your cookbook —
I think that might've been the last time I talked to you —
was crazy best-seller. It was the biggest selling book
out of any book. I think it was Michelle Obama and then your book,
was the cookbook. -That's crazy.
-So now you have a second one coming out, volume two.
-Volume two is coming out. -That is coming out soon.
-Yep. -And then —
[ Cheers and applause ] I don't want to tell you
how to do your network, but I would do a cooking show,
if I were you. -I like that idea, Jimmy. Now you gotta talk to this guy.
-Oh, I'm cool with it. I'm cool with it.
You're talking to the executives of the Magnolia Network. And when Jimmy Fallon says,
"Jo should do a cooking show," I vote that
Jo does a cooking show. -Yes, I think you should do it.
Come on! [ Cheers and applause ]
I'd love to be a guest. -I would love
to have you as a guest. -Yeah.
Will you do one? Will you do it?
Or you don't know? -We're doing one.
We're doing one. -You are?
-Yes. -You are gonna do one?
-We're gonna do it. [ Cheers and applause ]
-Great! You're gonna be great.
-It's gonna be fun. -Matthew McConaughey said he was
gonna be a special guest. What I love about
opportunities like this — -He never said that, by the way. -You basically get to —
-How do you know what? -No, no, no, Chip,
he never said that to you. -You corner people
in the greenroom and you make them agree
to do things. -Oh, you cornered
Matthew McConaughey before the show?
-Exactly. I said, "Hey, do you mind
being a special guest?" And he said something like, "All
right, all right, all right." [ Laughter ] Sounds like a commitment to me.
A verbal agreement. -Chip, you wanted
to teach me something while you guys were here.
-All right. -I'm only in Texas
for one more night. -Hey.
-And I've had a great time. What exactly
did you want to teach me? -While you're in
the great city of Austin — I'm from the Dallas-Fort Worth
area, originally. [ Cheers and applause ]
All right, all right. So, anybody from
the Dallas-Fort Worth area, you know, sort of shading
towards the Fort Worth area, knows about a great place called
Billy Bob's Texas. [ Cheers and applause ] If there's one thing
I learned as a Texan — -There's only one
Billy Bob's Texas? [ Laughter ]
Sounds hard to believe. -Lots and lots of Billy Bob's.
-Okay, good. -There's only one
Billy Bob's Texas. So if there was anything
I learned in the great city of Fort Worth growing up
was how to two-step. And so I'm gonna teach my boy
Jimmy how to two-step tonight! [ Cheers and applause ] ♪♪ -A little country music for me. All right, here we go.
Here we go. -Yeah.
-One, two, one. One, two, one.
-Stop, stop. That's not how you teach.
What do you mean? -All right, all right.
Two fast, one slow. -Oh.
-One, two, one. -One, two, one.
-There you go! [ Cheers and applause ]
One, two, one. One, two, one.
[ Cheers and applause ] -Whoo-hoo-hoo! Yeah, come on, now!
Whoo! -Oh, my goodness,
that's how you do it! [ Cheers and applause ] Chip and Joanna Gaines,
everybody! [ Cheers and applause ]
