Jonathan Reclaims Winner Title from Drew In Season Six of HGTV's BROTHER VS. BROTHER
Jonathan Scott gleefully triumphed over his brother Drew during last night's finale of the popular HGTV real estate and renovation competition series Brother vs. Brother: Jonathan vs. Drew. The series followed the guys as they each purchased a property sight unseen in the San Francisco suburbs, beautifully renovated them and then sold them in hopes of earning the highest net profit. With their fate in the hands of the buyer, Jonathan's final sale price of his stunning eco-chic home beat out Drew's by a margin of $8,000.
"Give me the trophy back! The trophy never felt good in Drew's hands, but it feels home right here," said Jonathan, while Drew added, "it never feels good to lose, especially to Jonathan. He's going to rub it in for the next year just like I did to him last year."
"This was a nail biter of epic proportions," admitted Jonathan. "But I've won back the title and that's all that matters."
The total profit from the sale of the two homes will benefit a rebuild project in the San Francisco Bay Area 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.
"I hate giving up my title but Jonathan deserved it," said Drew. "His place looked amazing. And I'm very proud of my house. We made a lot of money for charity so it's a win-win for everyone...except for me."
Produced by Scott Brothers Entertainment, with Jonathan and Drew as executive producers, this installment of Brother vs. Brother: Jonathan vs. Drew followed the twins as they overcame numerous construction challenges to successfully renovate two Bay Area homes. HGTV and DIY Network stars stopped by each week to judge and select their favorite redesigned spaces. During the season, the weekly challenge loser faced unpleasant assignments such as being locked in solitary confinement on Alcatraz while the winner's outings included a visit to Lucasfilm to meet R2D2. Although Drew defeated Jonathan in four of the five weekly design challenges, Jonathan's home ultimately won the competition by earning the higher net profit.
The New York Times best-selling authors Jonathan and Drew Scott also star in HGTV's Emmy®-nominated series Property Brothers.
