They paid $1.36 million for the house and would like Alison and her co-host Donovan to get it off their hands.
8 Are Alison And Donovan Still Co-Hosts?
It’s always fun to watch a duo on an HGTV show, especially a married couple like Chip and Joanna Gaines on Fixer Upper. Windy City Rehab viewers know that Alison and Donovan were the faces of the show, and they might have heard that there was some drama between them.
Alison says that Donovan didn’t deal with the company’s money properly, and the pair went through a lot after Chicago suspended his developer and contractor licenses.

2 How Do People In The Chicago Neighborhoods Feel?
