Chip Gaines may be an eternal jokester, but Joanna's hubby sure knows when he's in trouble with his beloved wife.

Recently, the cover star for the January 2019 issue of Cowboys & Indians magazine spoke with the outlet about his family, playing baseball, farm life, and more. In one particularly endearing clip, interviewer Hunter Hauk asks, "Being older and wiser now, how do you know when your affinity for chaos has landed you in the doghouse? Does it only take a look?"

Chip, in classic form, answers, "Oh yeah. Jo and I know each other; we have always been really good to each other. We believe that part of the magic in our marriage is just the simple fact that we care sincerely about one another." When things get crazy, though? "And boy, when either of us are off the tracks or kind of lost our minds in one way or the other, you know, a little look, a little side eye certainly goes a long way for sure. And she's got a nasty one. She's scary."
