HGTV guest judges, Lex and Alana LeBlanc (Listed Sisters), Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri (America’s Most Desperate Kitchen), Egypt Sherrod (Flipping Virgins), David Bromstad (My Lottery Dream Home), Tiffany Brooks (HGTV Smart Home) and DIY Network’s Vanilla Ice (The Vanilla Ice Project), will decide who wins each weekly match.
During the series produced by Scott Brothers Entertainment, with Jonathan and Drew as executive producers, the challenge loser must face embarrassing dares such as wearing a showgirl costume in front of a famous Las Vegas landmark, being sent to clean priceless cars with a toothbrush or playing the jester in a live-action medieval dinner show. New this year, the challenge winner gets a classic Vegas-style reward such as performing the trapeze in a circus act, playing a part in the legendary illusionist David Copperfield’s show or taking a private tour of singer and entertainer Wayne Newton’s Las Vegas estate.
“Last year it was a tight race, but I managed to take the win,” said Jonathan.
“This is my year—I’m going to win,” said Drew. “I don’t like the feeling of losing to Jonathan.”
“And as the oldest brother, I’m here to keep these two on track with the rules of the game and to make fun of the biggest loser,” joked JD.
Beginning on Wednesday, June 1, fans can visit HGTV.com/brothers to watch Drew and Jonathan’s weekly design tips in the new digital content “Brothers vs. Judges” and take a tour of the #TeamJonathan and #TeamDrew spaces. They also can check out exclusive extended footage from JD who will be sharing a behind the scenes look at the Brothers’ on-air and uncensored dares.
“More than 13 million people watched last season and viewers are hungry for this Brother vs. Brother rematch,” said Allison Page, general manager, HGTV and DIY Network. “Let the competition begin."
All proceeds from Brother vs. Brother home sales will go back to the Las Vegas community via Rebuilding Together—a national U.S. non-profit organization preserves affordable homeownership and helps to revitalize neighborhoods by providing free home repairs and modifications to low-income homeowners.
The New York Times best-selling authors Jonathan and Drew Scott also star in HGTV’s Emmy®-nominated series Property Brothers and will be featured in a new installment of Property Brothers at Home this fall.
