Chip Gaines got into an amusing back-and-forth with a social media user who wasn't exactly sure who the former HGTV star was.

The conversation began on Wednesday, April 10, when the Barstool Kentucky account shared of a photo of Chip, 49, and his wife, Joanna, 45 with the caption, "Keep these two away from Scott Drew for the next 48 hours," referring to the Baylor University basketball coach.

This prompted an X user called "Coach T" to bluntly ask, "Who tf is @chipgaines?"

The television personality replied, "Do you kiss your mom with that mouth.. ask her who I am, she’ll know."

Chip clarified that the jokes were "all in good fun," but the real hilarity started when Coach T came back with screenshots from a text conversation he'd actually had with his mother.
