THE SCOTT BROTHERS BATTLE ON THE BEACH
New Season of Brother vs. Brother: Jonathan vs. Drew Premieres June 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV Canada
Sibling Rivalry Heats Up When the Brothers Must Purchase and Renovate Two Beachfront Properties on Budget and with Tight Deadlines
TORONTO, Canada – The Scott brothers are turning up the heat and the competition as Jonathan and Drew Scott head to the beach in Galveston, Texas, for season five of Brother vs. Brother: Jonathan vs. Drew (6×60). Premiering Monday, June 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on HGTV Canada, the real estate and renovation competition series arms the brothers with $600,000 each and six weeks to purchase and transform two drab waterfront homes into stunning vacation retreats.
Jonathan and Drew go head-to-head with older brother JD acting as referee and a panel of guest judges reviewing weekly room challenges. The weekly challenge loser is forced to endure miserable outings such as riding a terrifying amusement park attraction on repeat, climbing an 81-foot obstacle ropes course, or heading out to sea to catch shrimp for the winner’s dinner. Meanwhile, the challenge winner enjoys fun adventures such as flyboarding, zip lining, or playing with penguins at a local aquarium.
All proceeds from Brother vs. Brother: Jonathan vs. Drew home sales go back to local communities via Rebuilding Together, a national U.S. non-profit organization that preserves affordable homeownership and helps to revitalize neighbourhoods by providing free home repairs and modifications to low-income homeowners.
Brother vs. Brother: Jonathan vs. Drew is produced by Scott Brothers Entertainment, with Jonathan and Drew as executive producers. The New York Times best-selling authors Jonathan and Drew Scott also star in HGTV Canada’s Emmy®-nominated series Property Brothers. The season finale of Property Brothers Season 6 premieres on HGTV Canada Monday, May 29th at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Viewers can catch up on previous episodes of Property Brothers Mondays at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET/3 p.m. and 4 p.m. PT on HGTV Canada, while full seasons of Property Brothers and Brothers Take New Orleans are available on hgtv.ca.
