Drew and Jonathan Scott, the faces of the hit show Property Brothers, have become TV personas, leading the way in home and garden television. But behind the home makeovers and camera lights, there's a hidden history waiting to be discovered. From turbulent love lives to the unsettling reality backstage, there's a world that most fans don't know about. Join us as we pull back the curtain and uncover the details of the Scott brothers' rise to TV royalty.
The Unexpected Beginnings of the Property Brothers
Drew and Jonathan Scott's lives started as a big surprise. Unbeknownst to all, even the doctor, a surprising turn of events awaited in that delivery room – not one, but two babies. Initially, their mother was expecting Jonathan and was shocked to learn she would be delivering a second baby! Luckily, they were born healthy and grew up very close. Lucky for Jonathan, he had a brother, or the Property Brothers wouldn't be what it is today!
As soon as they entered adulthood, they weren't ready for the way their lives would change in a manner most people can only hope for.
The Property Brothers Almost Took Different Career Paths
Right from the start, Jon veered away from the conventional path. Foreshadowing his future, at only seven years old, Jon took on rearranging his childhood bedroom. Later, while he and his brother Drew were in college, they sold their first house for a profit of $50,000. However, after this, he still spent significant time testing different waters and career paths. But eventually, he would find his calling and never look back.
Though it would take some time for Jon to become the TV star we know him as today. So what did he do before the fame hit?
Jonathan Was a Magician Before the Fame
Jonathan was always interested in dozens of different career paths. At this point in his life, being a magician was what he saw for his future. He tried out his hand at magic and found an affinity for entertaining. His brother and, at one point, even made a living as clowns for various parties. He knew the entertainment lifestyle was for him, but how it would turn out, he never saw coming.
It was an innocent endeavor that would lead him to where he is today. Little did they know that this endeavor would reshape their futures.
They Began Flipping Homes With No Experience
Jonathan dreamt of a life where he could entertain, but his days of magic tricks weren't pulling in as much money as he had hoped for. So, he decided to pursue another passion of his. He became a licensed contractor and began renovating homes. His brother, Drew, is said to be a licensed real estate agent, although this information would come back to put their reputation on hold in the future.
The two brothers began purchasing homes that they could flip, renovate themselves, and sell for a profit. However, they were nervous if they would be able to sustain this business venture.
Their Unpredictable Big Break
Both brothers had a knack for entertainment, but Jonathan didn't know how to make it a reality. He went on to gain experience in contracting, hoping something would catch and make him money. Meanwhile, Drew was pursuing entertainment still and auditioning for acting roles. That's when something occurred that they never dreamt could happen to them. Drew had the chance to host a show about realtors and mentioned his twin brother also had home improvement skills!
When the producers learned of this, they jumped on the idea. They sold the illusion that they were experienced in realty and construction and so their journey began.
Drew's TV Hosting Offer Lured His Brother In
The two might've never landed their show if it wasn't for Drew's relentless pursuit of an acting career. While Jonathan wasn't as hopeful and pursued his own passion projects, Drew advocated for them both and secured interest in their potential. Before they knew it, the idea of twins hosting a home improvement show became a reality. This was a dream, especially for Jonathan, who had been trying to break into the entertainment industry with magic for years.
Their show, Property Brothers, was about to take off on HGTV and soon they would find out if the rest of the world would like their idea as much as they did.
Building Dream Homes While His Personal Life Falls Apart
Beneath the glossy surface of the hit show Property Brothers lies a darker truth. The premise seems simple enough - twin brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott help couples find, buy, and renovate their dream homes. But behind the scenes, Jonathan's personal life threatens to overshadow his professional duties. Despite his undeniable talent for home improvement, he finds himself entangled in a web of off-screen relationship drama that hinders his ability to fully devote himself to the show's success.
As viewers witness the transformation of houses on screen, they remain unaware of the turmoil brewing behind closed doors.
Jonathan's New Love Interest Meant He Spent Less Time Focusing on the Show
In the depths of Jonathan Scott's world, a chance encounter with Jacinta Kuznetsov would ignite a flame that seemed destined to burn bright. Their connection was undeniable, and Jon couldn't help but believe it was the start of something truly special. However, as love engulfed his heart, it began to consume his focus. The once-thriving show that brought him fame and success now took a backseat to this newfound romance.
Uncertainty and unease crept in for Drew, who was now happy for his brother's new love but unsure how this would change his dedication to their show.
His New Marriage Took Center Stage
Scott's display of affection for Jacinta was impossible to ignore. He flaunted their love on social media, letting his followers see their endless Instagram photos that oozed romance. Not content with merely showcasing their relationship online, he managed to incorporate Jacinta into his TV show. Soon, wedding bells rang, and the two were officially husband and wife. From social media, everything seemed picture perfect, but behind closed doors, things were different.
It was only a matter of time before the facade crumbled, leaving behind a trail of shattered dreams.
Jonathan Couldn't Help but Compare His Every Move to Drew
In the shadow of his brother, Drew, he constantly found himself plagued by comparisons. It seemed as though he could never escape the looming presence of his sibling, always striving to measure up to his accomplishments. Drew had solidified their TV deal, and now Jon was even commenting on how Jacinta and his relationship had only spanned a mere year and a half, yet they married, unlike his brother, who waited seven years to marry.
Would Jonathan forge his own destiny or be haunted by the decisions of his brother?
His Love Life Was Failing
The two married that same year, keeping Jonathan busier than ever with his show and wedding to account for. However, it seems their love wasn't as strong as they thought it was because, after two years, the couple decided to split up. It is a bitter pill to swallow, as their relationship had been built on hopes and dreams. It ended as fast as it started, and Jonathan was caught up in the chaos of it all.
Now with a TV show taking off and a whirlwind romance coming to an abrupt end, how could Jonathan cope?
He Chose a Career Over His Girlfriend
In the relentless whirlwind of Scott's chaotic work and filming schedule, the couple attempted to find a compromise. He always had to travel and had a filled-up calendar, so they struggled to find time for each other. An attempt to strike a balance between their personal lives and the demands of Scott's career failed. They couldn't manage to balance their relationship with his new fame. Ultimately, Jonathan had to make a choice.
He chose his career and fame over his love for Jacinta. His relentless pursuit of success left little room for love and connection.
His Painful Breakup With Ex-Girlfriend Jacinta
He tried to move on from the breakup and even insisted that he and Jacinta left things on good terms. He shared that they were friends, and it was mutual. Rather than being filled with sadness, he was filled with joy from all the memories they had together. It was just time for him to really focus on his career. That was until he found out some disheartening news that hit him hard.
Not even a year after his breakup, he discovered that Jacinta was engaged to someone else. It devastated him, and he couldn't understand how she moved on so fast.
Jonathan Was Having a Tough Time Facing the Truth
Breaking up is never easy, especially when you're in the public eye. HGTV star spoke out about how therapy helped him deal with his breakup with Jacinta, especially seeing her move on so quickly. It allowed him to reflect on himself and really figure out what he wanted out of life. But Jacinta didn't want people to think she had just coldheartedly moved on, so she shared her side of the story on her social media.
Their love life was now being displayed for everyone to read about, and she had some strong feelings to share about it.
Jacinta Couldn't Shake off the Sense of Loss and Disappointment
Jacinta knew she needed to make it clear that their separation was amicable. It was the only way to stop the rumors and save her reputation. So she took to her social media to share how actually the break up was very mutual, and they just couldn't make it work. They mutually decided it would be the best for them, and they even wanted to stay in each others lives as friends.
Despite her attempts to be diplomatic, the reality was that a chapter in her life had come to a close. And nothing would change that.
Officially Moving on
These final words marked the end of a journey but not the end of a friendship. Two people had decided to part ways but insisted they were on good terms. As they said their goodbyes, they made a promise never to let go of the bond they had formed, but it seemed that, at this point, they were completely done. Any friendship they had left was officially out the door.
Since she quickly moved on, Jonathan continued looking for love elsewhere and decided to refocus on the entertainment industry.
This Wasn't His First Heartbreak
While Jon and Jacinta's split may have surprised many, those closest to Jon know it wasn't his first heartbreak. Back in 2007, Jon had married Kelsy Ully, an employee at Westjet. However, their marriage wasn't pretty either. The two went through several years of emotional turmoil before finally parting ways. Many people don't know about this previous chapter in his life, and it shows that there's often more to a person than what meets the eye.
All this time, while Jonathan and Drew were appearing happy as ever on their show and trying to make a name for themselves, Jonathan was dealing with heartbreak after heartbreak. Would it ever end?
He Struggled to Find Some One He Was Compatible With
After two failed marriages, it's no wonder that Jon feels as though he's a magnet for heartbreak. The end of his first marriage, much like his second, was a difficult experience that left him feeling lost and unsure of how to proceed with his life. As a result, it's no surprise that he struggled to focus on solidifying his career. The divorce from his first wife left him feeling blindsided and disoriented.
It was a tough experience, but it took him a while to recover from that divorce too. But wait, there's more that would change everything you thought you knew about the Property Brothers' past.
He Was Desperate to Finally Fall in Real Love
Everything changed for Property Brothers star Jonathan Scott when he met New Girl alum Zooey Deschanel. He had always been concerned with his love life behind the scenes, but now he was thrust into the public eye with a new celebrity sweetheart. Their unlikely romance began while filming for Carpool Karaoke, and the two hit it off! This was a welcome change from his past relationships that he couldn't help but have hope for.
This time, he was thrilled to be dating someone who shared his passions for music, acting, and entertainment and understood the demanding schedules of the entertainment industry.
Zooey Deschanel and Jonathan Started a Romance Quickly
Since then, their relationship has grown even stronger, but something lurks in the shadows. Could it be that they've rushed into this love story too quickly? That's what he did with his past lovers, and it devastated him. This time, he had to be cautious. Otherwise, he would be left to the same fate as his past relationships. Thinking he found the one, only to be blindsided by an inevitable and sad breakup.
The question remains: can they handle the twists and turns of a relationship in the public eye, or will it all end in heartbreak? Only time will tell.
People Questioned if This New Girl Would Stick Around
The home improvement expert, who was once known for his keen eye for detail and his meticulousness when it comes to his craft, was now the subject of scrutiny for his love life. The revelation that he and the Elf actress were in a special and unexpected relationship had everyone talking. And while many were excited for him, there were also doubts about whether he could handle a successful relationship and a demanding career.
Would this new romance be just another chapter in a long line of failed relationships? The stakes were high, and he had a lot to prove.
This Could Finally Be the One
Rumors were endlessly swirling around Hollywood about the possible engagement between Jonathan and his leading lady, Zooey. As their romance continued, so did the speculation about when Jonathan would pop the question. The media has been abuzz with whispers of an upcoming proposal, but Jonathan was playing his cards close to his chest. He even admitted he would never tell reporters about a proposal anyway before actually proposing to his girlfriend.
People were anxious to find out if Jonathan could finally find love after all that didn't end badly for him.
All Eyes Were on Drew
As the love drama of his life continued to unfold, he felt he was finally in a good place, and Jonathan could really throw himself into work, now more than ever. His and his brother’s entertainment production company, in particular, had become his refuge. They had already made a name for themselves in the industry and decided to embark on a new concept, Property Brothers at Home: Drew’s Honeymoon House.
However, since this series was focused on his brother, he was afraid he wouldn't get as much attention in the media.
It Was Time for Drew to Shine
There was a sense of unease in the air as news spread of a new show titled Linda & Drew Say I Do. The anticipation of the show was met with mixed reactions, particularly from one of the show's stars, Jonathan. Furthermore, the bond between Jonathan and his brother Drew had always been unbreakable until now. With the exposure from the TV show, Drew was becoming increasingly popular, causing tension between the brothers.
The fate of the brothers' relationship seemed to be on the line, and once again, when the cameras weren't rolling, Jonathan seemed to be grappling with hard feelings.
People Speculated the Show Was Staged
As far as home improvement dramas go, there is one duo that has dominated the airwaves with their impeccable eye for design and knack for flipping houses. The twins, Drew and Jonathan, took the world by storm with their hit show, but as the saying goes, all that glitters is not gold. The dark truth behind the show has come to light, leaving fans wondering if it was all just a facade or real.
The staged drama of their home renovation show has left many questioning what is fact and what is fiction.
You Need a Minimum of $90,000 to Get on Their Show
The brothers' talent and charm are undeniable, but there's a darker side to the hit TV show's renovation process. Those hoping to have Jonathan and Drew drop by their abode should be prepared to empty their bank accounts. Some fans think people on the show can remodel their homes for free. However, there is a whopping $90,000 set as the admission price, a figure set to cover any surprises that might arise during the renovation.
People who apply to the show have to prove that they have the funds to cover these expenses before they can get chosen for the show.
The House-Hunting Aspect Is Not Always Real
House-hunting is daunting, with many options available and the pressure to find the perfect home. But what if the entire process was just an illusion? What if the dramatic scenes that make up your favorite TV show were nothing but staged performances? The tours, the deliberations, and the heart-wrenching decision-making processes are said to be primarily fake. Couples are forced to play their parts in a carefully orchestrated production, pretending to be torn apart by decisions made for them beforehand.
But the show must go on, and so they must continue the act to entertain the viewers who have become invested in their "real" lives.
Drew Merely Acts as a Real Estate Agent on the Show
There's a secret behind the glamorous exterior of Property Brothers star Drew Scott. Despite his polished real estate agent persona, it seems not all of his clients are who they seem. It's a shocking revelation that not all buyers on the show use Drew as their agent, leaving the truth behind his success a mystery. Although Drew may helm negotiations, it seems he is often just a pretty face and comedic relief rather than an essential player in the purchasing process.
Drew is simply a part of show business, playing the role of real estate expert when, in fact, more often than not, he's not the guy finding the home and closing the deal.
You Can't Get on the Show Without a Sidekick
As the Property Brothers continue to air, many have noticed a lingering trend that raises a question of intent. It seems that every potential home buyer on the show is a couple, even if only one is buying the property. Is there something that the producers are hiding? Is there a reason why singles are not given a chance? There have been times when a friend or family member accompanies the buyer, but it's more rare.
Is this just a non-negotiable for potential homebuyers, or are the homebuyers playing a part in a well-scripted show?
Buyers on the Show Can Only Choose Either the Bathroom or Kitchen Remodeled
The truth behind the Property Brothers' renovations has been uncovered, and it's not pretty. Despite their reputation for creating dream homes, the brothers only focus on half of the house and leave the rest in shambles. Buyers must make difficult decisions about which rooms they want renovated and can only choose one out of two options - either the kitchen or the bathroom but can't have both. We thought the entire house was renovated each time!
With secrets lurking behind every wall, it's clear that the Property Brothers have a lot to answer for.
Purposely Showing Homes Out of the Participants' Budgets
A dark undertone lurks behind every episode of this popular HGTV show. The seemingly harmless premise of the show involves twin brothers, Jonathan and Drew Scott, renovating homes for hopeful buyers. However, the show's formula of letdowns and hidden fees creates a dread and unease that lingers long after the credits roll. Buyers are baited with the false promise of affording their dream home, only to be swiftly let down when the brothers reveal it's out of budget.
What is the point of this letdown? Maybe it's a way to build suspense and drama in the show, but it just plays with the participants' emotions.
Jonathan Doesn't Actually Do the Work but Pays Other Contractors to Renovate
As we sit in front of our TV screens watching Jon and Drew Scott of Property Brothers fame transform run-down houses into dream homes, we can't help but wonder what really goes on behind the scenes. Allegedly, on the show, it turns out that Jon may not be as hands-on as we think. Despite being the face of the renovation side of the show, Jon supposedly does little of the real heavy lifting.
Instead, the bulk of the work is done by local contractors who don't have the same level of TV-friendly charisma as the brothers. Is this just another example of reality TV trickery?
The Property Brothers Don't Spend Much Time With the Participants
On the show, it appears that the brothers spend every minute at the house they are renovating and constantly getting to know the participants. But it seems they don't actually do this, and it's just for show. In reality, they spend maybe one day a week at the house and don't interact much with the buyers anyway. But of course, that wouldn't go over well on the show, so they act super friendly.
Whether that's because the brothers actually prefer to keep their distance from the buyers or just aren't as involved as the show paints them to be, it's pretty weird.
Fights and Difficult Couples on the Show Are Fake
The drama that unfolds on Property Brothers might have you thinking that divorce is looming around every corner. However, don't let the fights between potential homebuyers fool you. These conflicts are nothing more than elements to keep viewers super engaged. Everything from injuries, fights, and super opinionated and tough participants is usually staged. It's no secret that reality TV shows thrive on drama, and Property Brothers is clearly no exception.
These conflicts might make for better TV, but they certainly aren't real. Though they certainly know how to make entertaining content.
The Other Brother Hidden From the Limelight
While Jonathan and Drew Scott bask in the limelight, they have a brother they never mention! JD Scott remains largely shrouded in mystery. But what lies behind his seemingly low-key presence? We wonder if there's a sibling rivalry, considering two rose to fame together while the other was left to fend for himself. However, he seems to be trying to make a name for himself and even started his web series.
He also seems to have a knack for homes, as his web series is all about celebrity homes in Las Vegas.
