Drew and Jonathan Scott, the property brothers are talented, handsome, smart and very successful in their career. They are as well popular in the niche of the reality TV which they carved out for themselves. Drew is a real estate professional who finds neglected houses and negotiates for their purchase. When he does this, his brother Jonathan who is a licensed contractor will then renovate the house and give it a new look.
By doing this, they help families in dire need of homes to find, purchase and live in their dream homes. Behind the handsome looking property brothers, there is a lot yet unknown about them which we will outline here.
Bio of The Property Brothers
The Property brothers were born on April 28, 1978, in Vancouver, British Columbia. Their nationality and ethnicity are both Canadian. They were born to Jim Scott, their father and Joanne Scott is their mother. The twins have a younger brother James Daniel who is their only known sibling. The 3 of them grew up in their family’s ranch home where they had ample time playing and tending to the family’s animals in the ranch.
The elder twin’s love for acting began right in his elementary school; he started with standup comedy and drama which he continued with through Thomas Haney Secondary School where he was also active in sports; playing and coaching basketball and volleyball. For college, Drew went to the University of Calgary and specialized in Kinesiology with a minor in Math.
While in high school, he had roles in TV series like Smallville and Breaker High where he performed exceptionally well. Later, he and his twin brother requested to host a home renovation show called My Dream Home and they got it. The show is known today as the Property Brothers. Their rise to fame was quite a fast one but perhaps because they are good at what they do, they had no limits.
Jonathan from an early age had a thing for magic. In his teen, he was actively performing and known as an award-winning magician and illusionist in their hometown. Like his brother, he also had a knack for acting. They started performing as child actors and would often request for roles themselves which they will practice and rehearse thoroughly before performing in theatres or TV.
Jonathan attended the University of Calgary for business; he later transferred to Southern Alberta Institute of Technology and the Home Builders Institute of Alberta where he studied construction and design.
By age 18, Drew and Jonathan were buying and turning around neglected homes for a profit and by their mid-20’s, they had a promising real estate, design and renovation business in their name and have worked with hundreds of clients.
The Property Brothers Height
The twins not only look alike and are difficult to tell apart, they are nearly of the same height of 6 foot 5 inches with just 1-inch difference in height. Drew Scott has a height of 6 feet 4 inches while his twin brother Jonathan has a height of 6 feet 5 inches.
Besides being tall and handsome, they also play karate which helps them keep fit and look appealing to women.
Are the Property Brothers Gay, Married?
For years, Drew was thought of as being gay. He, however, dealt a heavy blow to the rumour and public suspicion when he got married to his longtime girlfriend Linda Phan in 2016. They were said to have known each other for over 6 years. Linda works as a Creative Director at Scott Brothers Entertainment. Scott disclosed that he “appreciated her presence when filming “property Brothers” because she keeps them grounded.”
Just like Drew, whatever that goes for him will also spill over to his brother Jonathan. He was suspected to be gay as well and since he is still not married a few years after his twin brother tied the nuptial cord, one begins to wonder what his sexuality is.
For now, he is devoted to looking after his two-pint-sized dogs; a Chihuahua and Yorkie named Gracie and Stewie respectively.
Though he has been seen publicly in an event with a woman whose name was disclosed by a little bird as Jacinta, much can’t be said about the two if they are dating or just acquainted with each other. Jonathan’s sexual orientation will be finally confirmed when he chooses to get married like his brother did. Perhaps, only then can the question “are the property brothers gay?” get a conclusive answer.
Is The Show Fake?
Owing to the fact that a lot of things shown on TV today are well scripted and doctored to paint a false picture of realism to be real, many people have expressed their doubts about the show. They ask whether it is real or not.
Here is how we should go about it before we conclude on whether it is fake or not.
A quick recap of the typical Property Brother Show –
A couple shows up and wants an amazing house they will call their home and it should be located right in the heart of their choice neighbourhood and they would love to move in immediately. The brothers set to work and find this dream home for them and trouble starts when the home is way too expensive for their budget to accommodate.
A way around it is for the brothers to find the worst houses in the neighbourhood which the couple would typically not want. However, Drew gets them a good deal for the house and they finally accept to pay for it while Jonathan will do a makeover of the house. After a couple of weeks when he must have finished, the couple comes over and is wowed by what they have done. Instantly they fall in love with the house and gets to live in their dream home.
That is a typical property brother’s show for you.
Based on this narrative, some persons who have followed the show long enough to tell a script apart from reality have submitted critically that the show is scripted.
Some of the reasons they gave for this are;
- Admittance of previous couples in the show that they had already paid for their homes before appearing on the show.
- Some said they had already decided on the home to own before being taken to it by the brothers.
- Real estate agents and general contractors are supposed to be licensed in their state of operation before doing business there. However, in season 9 and 10 of the show, they were filmed in Greater New York, selling and refurbishing a home so you can connect the dots together
- Every episode of the show follows the same pattern with one or two problems created to add some suspense to the whole drama.
If you have seen the show and is now in the know of this fake show pointers, you are in the right position to make your judgement.
