New York [July 6, 2017] After suffering defeat for two consecutive seasons, Drew Scott claimed victory during last night’s finale of the popular HGTV real estate and renovation competition series Brother vs. Brother: Jonathan vs. Drew. Set in beautiful Galveston, Texas, the six episodes followed the Scott Brothers as they purchased outdated waterfront homes, transformed them into stunning vacation retreats and then sold them to earn the highest net profit. In the end, Drew’s final sale price vanquished Jonathan’s by a generous margin of $19,500.
“I can’t even explain how excited I am,” said Drew. “JD said the magic words – ‘The winner is Drew!’ – and I nearly cried. For two years, I’ve been listening to Jonathan show off and brag about his wins and now it’s my turn to brag.”
“I am actually speechless,” said Jonathan. “I’ll admit that Drew’s house looks fantastic, and he really brought the fight. So, congratulations and well done.”
The duo collected the highest total profit in Brother vs. Brother history with an impressive $160,500. The proceeds from the sales will benefit projects in both Galveston and Houston via Rebuilding Together—a national U.S. nonprofit organization that preserves affordable homeownership and helps to revitalize neighborhoods by providing free home repairs and modifications to homeowners in need.
“All of our profits from these two houses will go straight to Rebuilding Together which is an incredible charitable organization,” said Jonathan.
“We’ve been working with them for years and love the fact that all the proceeds from this season will go right back into local Texas communities,” added Drew.
Produced by Scott Brothers Entertainment, with Jonathan and Drew as executive producers, this season showcased the twins going head-to-head each week as they renovated their beachside fixer uppers, vying for votes as HGTV and DIY Network guest judges weighed in on each space. During the series, the weekly challenge loser faced unpleasant assignments such as cleaning the penguin habitat at the local aquarium while the winner basked in the best of Galveston, including thrilling flyboarding in the bay.
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: Drew’s Honeymoon House this fall.
