[New York - July 7, 2016] During last night’s nail-biting finale episode of HGTV’s Brother vs. Brother, Jonathan ultimately bested his twin brother Drew in the series last home renovation battle: best home exterior and landscaping. The six-episode series followed the popular Scott Brothers as they each vied to buy, renovate and sell a Las Vegas home at the highest net profit. In the end, the funds generated by the Brother vs. Brother home sales totaled more than $106,000. Proceeds from the sales will benefit the Las Vegas community 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 low-income homeowners. As part of the finale celebration, Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman was on hand to present both brothers with a key to the city.
“Beating Drew again in Brother vs. Brother is unbelievable,” said Jonathan. “When I decided to go with a mid-century modern design, I knew it was a risk, but the gamble paid off.”
“It’s tough losing to Jonathan,” replied Drew. “No matter how the competition went, all of the money goes back to the community and that’s what’s important.”
Throughout the series, the challenge loser faced embarrassing dares such as playing the jester in a live-action medieval dinner show and cleaning the priceless cars of Vegas icon Wayne Newton. The challenge winner enjoyed the spoils, including a private tour of illusionist David Copperfield’s magic studio.
Produced by Scott Brothers Entertainment, with Jonathan and Drew as executive producers, Brother vs. Brother pitted the twins against each other as they put their home renovation and real estate skills to the test. Each brother bought a Las Vegas fixer-upper and renovated every room -- competing to win votes of HGTV guest judges in a weekly match-up.
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 series, Brothers Take New Orleans this fall.
