Since Property Brothers catapulted onto our screens in 2011, we’ve been obsessed with the dreamy homes and the goofy charm of twin realtor/renovator combo Jonathan and Drew Scott.
Like most TV shows, there have been some missteps and behind-the-scenes secrets they don’t want fans to know. Take a look at some little-known facts about the Scotts’ rise to fame and some trouble they’ve run into along the way.
Jonathan Is All For Show
People the world over have enjoyed watching Jonathan get hot and sweaty while he demolishes a wall, or struts around sanding some wood in nothing but jeans, a tool belt, and a tank top. It might be heart-breaking to know that he doesn’t actually do the renovations himself.
One Reddit user spilled the beans on how the show operates when it comes to the renovation process. “They use local contractors in the areas they are working in. They get referrals (not sure from whom) and then narrow down the crews they use to 4 different ones. I’m assuming we won’t get to choose which crew is working on our home.”
