Rae Ripple from 'Metal Shop Masters' on Netflix is the Coolest Welder You Will Ever See!

Rae Ripple is a contestant on ‘Metal Shop Masters’ on Netflix. She is a mother to two kids, a son & a daughter. Rae Ripple is currently dating her boyfriend Joshua Bailey.

Metal Shop Masters is a new Netflix reality show in which seven of the world’s most creative fabricators battle to determine who can create the most stunning metal art.

The program, hosted by comedian Jo Koy, explores contestants as they create everything from grills to ‘End of the World” escape automobiles.

It’s essentially Mad Max crossing over with The Great British Bake Off. Rae Ripple, a welder from Texas, is one of the Season one contestants, and viewers are already smitten with her.

Don’t let the blonde hair and the gorgeous blue eyes deceive you. Rae Ripple‘s talent with a welding flame means she is a proper challenge to the big boys in the reality competition.

Rae confessed in the first episode that her parents were both alcoholics and she left home when she was 14 years old.

She had a daughter soon after she turned 17, but because of her passion for welding, she was able to dramatically transform her life.

Rae says on Metal Shop Masters:

When I got into art, and welding and fabrication, I slowly started to become who I was supposed to be.

Rae Ripple is renowned for her free-hand plasma slicing, which entails the use of a plasma cutting torch, compressed air, and an electric arc to carve through metal.

The Netflix alum added,

If you use it a lot, like I do, you can turn yourself into a human CNC (Computer Numerical Control). And that’s kind of what I’ve done.

Besides being an exceptional welder, Rae Ripple is also a proud mother and fond of motorcycles.

Rae’s Instagram profile reveals she is equally skilled on her motorbikes as she is in the metal shop. Rae has images of herself riding her bike with her 12-year-old son, Kash, who is already following in his mother’s footsteps.

Her daughter, on the other hand, recently graduated from high school and is preparing to attend college.

Meanwhile, the Metal Shop Masters cast includes judges Stephanie Hoffman and David Madero along with seven contestants, namely Ivan Iler, Lou, Rae Ripple, Seven Bailey, Tom, Frank, and Leah.

Rae Ripple is Currently Dating Her Boyfriend Joshua Bailey

If you were wondering, Rae Ripple does not appear to be single. She has multiple images on social media with another motorbike enthusiast named Joshua Bailey, who is presumably her boyfriend.

The pair recently paid a visit to the site where Bonnie and Clyde were ambushed and shot to death, and the picture is adorable.

Rae captioned the post,

Anyone that knows me, knows I’m absolutely obsessed with the famous Bonnie and Clyde…. So on our way back home from Alabama, with nothing but time… we finally got to go visit the ambush site. Andddd this is us failing at trying to recreate one of their most famous photos!
