2. Ciara

Recording artist Ciara recently attended an intensive business program at Harvard earlier this year, and Joanna and Chip were her classmates. That totally makes them BFFs. We’d love to see what those study sessions looked like!

It’s clear that the Gaines’ have put their business skills to use, building a mega-empire. In addition to the TV presence, as mentioned, they have several retail lines, cookbooks, and an eatery that’s said to be “the most Instagrammed place in Texas,” getting more views than even the Alamo! Maybe the Gaines’ and Ciara will collaborate on a business venture in the future?
