What’s in store for the new season of Brother vs. Brother? Recently, Drew and Jonathan Scott spoke with TVInsider about season five of the HGTV series.
The new season will take place in Galveston, Texas and see the brothers compete to “transform drab waterfront homes into stunning vacation retreats.” Each will be given $600,000 and six weeks to get the job done.
In the interview, Jonathan explained why they moved season five to Galveston:
We’ve done the last two seasons at home in Las Vegas, and we thought to ourselves, “we want to mix it up.” We’re always trying to challenge ourselves as well as challenging each other. We thought the complete opposite of doing these challenges in the desert, was waterfront property. So we searched everywhere, all across the country, looking for beachfront property, but we wanted something that was pretty affordable. When we found Galveston, we were so absolutely blown away, and we knew this is what we wanted to do. We’ve never done beachfront properties before.”
Drew later discussed how the change in location affects their renovations:
Well, the big thing for Jonathan and me, we always need to make sure that we’re appealing. This show is a flipping show, right? We’re buying these houses with our own money—we have $600,000 each to buy and renovate—so we have to make sure we stick within that budget, and appeal to the local buyer. What is the local buyer looking for? Well, down there, they want more of a nautical feel, a seaside feel.”
