Brother vs. Brother: HGTV Orders New Property Brothers Show

Brother vs brother Property BrothersHGTV has given the go ahead for a yet another show starring the Property Brothers, twins Jonathan Scott and Drew Scott. On Brother vs. Brother, they’ll be pitted against one another as they each mentor a team of home improvement experts and try to win a $50,000 prize.

You can expect to see the six episodes of Brother vs. Brother starting next August on HGTV.

Here’s the press release:


NEW YORK – November 14, 2012 – With more than 13 million adults tuning into this summer’s third season of the Property Brothers and the debut of Buying & Selling ranking as HGTV’s highest-rated series premiere among P25-54 in 2012, the network is green lighting a third programming vehicle, Brother vs. Brother, for hosts and twin brothers Jonathan Scott and Drew Scott. A home renovation competition series, Brother vs. Brother pits Jonathan, a licensed contractor, and Drew, a real estate agent, against each other as they each mentor a team of six talented home improvement experts vying for a grand prize of $50,000. Currently in production with a six arc season, Brother vs. Brother is set to premiere in August 2013.

“Complete with high-stakes renovation challenges, Brother vs. Brother is an exciting home renovation competition series featuring Jonathan and Drew, two of HGTV’s most popular, break-out stars, who will mentor a new generation of home improvement experts,” said Kathleen Finch, HGTV’s general manager. “Brother vs. Brother is the perfect anchor to our summer programming slate with its Renaissance-style combination of real estate, renovation and decorating.”

Jonathan and Drew, hosts of HGTV’s Property Brothers and Buying & Selling, began captivating viewers last year with their knack for finding their clients down-and-out fixer uppers and turning them into perfect properties. But this time around, the brothers are facing a new challenge: coaching multi-talented home improvement experts in the art of renovating, decorating and increasing real estate values.

In each one-hour episode of Brother vs. Brother, Jonathan and Drew’s teams of home improvement experts, including renovators, builders and designers, will be assigned properties of similar value and structure – condos, ranch houses, bungalows, mansions, and more. In an effort to boost property values with smart renovation choices, each team will be given limited time and budget to determine which elements of the property should change and which ones should remain the same. Each brother will mentor his respective team by providing advice and sharing experience, but it will ultimately be up to the competitors to make smart choices and the final decisions. With the primary goal to increase the value of each home, one renowned appraiser and real estate expert will judge the overall renovation and reassess the values of the properties to select one clear cut winner. Each week, the competitor who can’t seem to cut it is eliminated from the competition from the brother who mentored him/her. The last one standing wins a $50,000 cash prize and one Scott brother will walk away with bragging rights as HGTV’s home renovation coach of the year.

Viewers can currently catch Jonathan and Drew on HGTV every Wednesday night, beginning with the Property Brothers at 8 p.m. ET and Buying & Selling at 9 p.m. ET. The third season of Property Brothers debuts on Wednesday, Jan. 9 at 9 p.m. ET. For additional dates and times, visit Viewers can also become fans of HGTV and interact with other home improvement enthusiasts through Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.

    I am very excited to see how their new show fares. I have become a fan
    of HGTV this past three months. And I am surprised that it I enjoy
    it so much. Its one

    I have just found HGTV and have fallen it love. I watch it nearly
    all day when I have time. And the property brothers are an extra
    treat. They seem to know what they’re doing and their looks sure
    add a nice bonus.

    I also love the brothers and I am excited to see their new show. I love their design style, property tips and personality. The fact that they are both handsome devils is just a bonus.

    I lost my husband suddenly last summer. My oldest daughter turn me on to both your shows. Watching them still helps me through some tuff times. Kudos to your parents for raising strong but compassionate men. It comes through in each episode in the way you handle every client. Can’t wait for Brother vs Brothers.

    They’re filming down the street from me right now. I had to look it up to see what Brother vs. Brother is. Now that I know, I can’t wait to go look and see what they’re up to with that shabby house! I love HGTV and all the home improvement shows! Fun!

    I love the show. I have been trying do my home like them but it just never comes out right. I have 14 foot Cellinig and my living Rome is 26×40 the place is so big . But the show is so short that it’s to hard to follow step by step. Maybe the brother can come to jersey city. I have one off the biggest houses on the block. But can not make it my dream home. Can you help me please..

  11. Donna says

    I enjoy all of their shows, and HGTV in general. This sounds like a really interesting and fun idea.
    Go for it ! It will be a winner I am sure.
