Before their debut, Chelsea teased her father-in-law’s TV appearance on Twitter, writing: “Cole’s parent’s television debut is coming up. I love them.”

Cole’s mom and dad were never featured on Teen Mom.

In one scene of the HGTV show, Brent visits Cole and assists in a home makeover.

Cole, 34, said in a confessional: “I feel like the relationship between my dad and I is just fun. We give each other a lot of grief, and we’re always just having a good time.

Chelsea, 31, chimed in: “Yes! I love Cole’s dad, he’s so funny.”

Critics on a popular Teen Mom Reddit page sounded off on the appearance.

One wrote: “Oooh, does this mean Cole’s brother will be on an episode?? Please!”

Another admitted: “I’ve been hatewatching the show but Cole’s parents seemed cute and normal.”

“I can confidently say that not a single one of us has ever cared to see his parents LOL,” wrote another.

“I just found it funny they never showed up on TM but were down for HGTV,” admitted another.

Since Down Home Fab premiered on January 16 the show has been subjected to harsh criticism from fans.


The premiere episode featured the partners using their decorating expertise to remodel several rooms in the nearby home of another Sioux Falls couple, Jessica and Nate.

With a budget of $100,000, they transformed their client’s kitchen, dining room, living room, seating area, and foyer, giving it a similar flare to Chelsea and Cole’s South Dakota farmhouse.

Some design choices included butcher block countertops for the kitchen, painting the original off-white cabinets black, and cooper wrap for the kitchen island. 

Though the clients seemed thrilled by the remodel, viewers on social media weren’t as impressed.

One said: “It was actually embarrassing how bad this went, they have 0 sense of style the house looked awful when they were done with it.”

A second agreed: “It looks horrible! Also, Chels kept saying the room was too dark, then proceeded to put down dark floors, and paint the walls AND ceilings dark green.”


Down Home Fab is filmed in Chelsea and Cole’s hometown of Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

After building their own farmhouse in 2020 and taking their social media followers along for the ride, the couple decided it was time to branch out and harness their creativity into a show.

Along for the ride are also Chelsea and Cole’s three biological children: Watson, Layne, and Walker.

As well as, Chelsea’s first child and daughter, Aubree Lind-DeBoer, whom she shares with her ex-boyfriend, Adam Lind.

The series premiere brought in a disappointing 678,000 viewers after the stars were slammed for their “ugly” decor decisions. 

But The U.S. Sun can exclusively reveal ratings have skyrocketed to 850,000 for the January 23 episode.

The former Teen Mom 2 stars left the MTV show in 2020.
