The dynamic duo, Jonathan and Drew Scott, best known for being hosts of the Emmy-nominated TV series “Property Brothers,” have consistently mesmerized watchers with their home renovation transformations. Since 2011, the Canadian twins have been setting a high standard for home improvement television with nine different TV series’ featured on the HGTV channel. Viewers are not only drawn to the shows because of the breathtaking house flips, but also Jonathan and Drew’s vibrant and charismatic personalities.
Contractor Jonathan and realtor Drew work side by side to assist families in finding and creating their perfect homes, all under a specific budget. In every episode, they never fail to make the buyers laugh or cry with joy because of their cheesy jokes or beautiful creations. Collectively, the property brothers devise interior layouts, problem-solve, and illustrate a sibling relationship that make viewers smile.
“We were always thinking big, dreaming big – no project was too big for us to tackle, and that comes from how we were raised. Our parents actually said to us, ‘If somebody says you can’t do something, find five ways to do it,’” said Jonathan Scott said in an interview with House Beautiful
Together, Jonathan and Drew’s charisma light up the show, making it more entertaining than other improvement shows and embodying the saying, “Two heads are better than one.” Watching “Property Brothers” makes you feel as if you are getting one-on-one home renovation advice straight from Jonathan and Drew.
Even with the ups and downs presented in each show, the brothers’ determination to resolve each issue is inspiring. While there is a unique relationship between the brothers, there is also a unique relationship between every person they meet in each of their nine TV shows.
“We knew we were different, even from our elementary school days. We were the class clowns; we engaged with people differently. We knew there was something out there that was meant for us,” Drew Scott told Star Tribune.
The two brothers went on to write a memoir together called “It Takes Two: Our Story,” reflecting on their lives and experiences, making it clear that they’re not only twin brothers, but best friends. It’s undeniable that their relationship enhances every show they star in. The design aspect of the homes they remodel is a large part of their shows, but people watch because of Jonathan and Drew’s magnetic connection.
“I feel like there’s an opportunity for a show called ‘Property Brother.’ No, I think our brand is definitely stronger together. When he sits on your head in the womb for 9 months, you’re connected,” Jonathan Scott told People Magazine.
