HGTV's Popular Property Brothers Face-Off In New Home Renovation Competition, Brother Vs. Brother

NEW YORK, June 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Two of HGTV's top experts, Jonathan Scott and Drew Scott , stars of the Property Brothers, are in an all-out battle to win HGTV's newest competition series, Brother vs. Brother. The six-episode series, premiering on Sunday, July 21, at 10 p.m. ET/PT, pits Jonathan's skills as a licensed contractor against Drew's experience as a real estate agent as they and their teams vie to execute the smartest home renovation upgrades and score the biggest property-value increase. Each week the results of the completed home renovation is evaluated by the discerning eyes of HGTV real estate stars, including Mike Aubrey ( Power Broker), Kennon Earl ( Selling LA) and Hilary Farr and David Visentin ( Love It or List It). While the 6'4" identical twins brothers go head-to-head to win championship bragging rights, the competing teams stop at nothing to take home the $50,000 grand prize.

The series features real renovations in real homes on realistic budgets—and demands that the team members demonstrate sharp skills and smart choices to impress the judges and avoid elimination. The teams compete in hardcore home improvement challenges and renovate a different property with limited funds and strict deadlines. The team that adds the most value to the property stays in the game, the losing team must face one of their own being voted out of the competition.

" Brother vs. Brother taps into Jonathan and Drew's friendly sibling rivalry and gives them a chance to embrace their natural competitive streak in this winner-take-all competition. It also allows our viewers to see which improvements add real value once a home renovation is completed," said Kathleen Finch, general manager, HGTV and DIY Network. "It also doesn't hurt that it gives viewers a chance to see more of this fan favorite duo."

The finalists are assembled into two teams based on the skill sets that each brother believes gives them the best shot to win the competition. Team Jonathan, a group of "renovation rock stars" who bring an eccentric background including real estate flipping, welding and DIY skills, includes Inez Escamila, Austin, Texas; Mark O'Mara, Baltimore, Md.; Tiffany "Torche" Perkins, Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.; Monica Reese, West Long Branch, N.J.; Shannon Thompson, Houston, Texas; and Francis Toumbakaris, New York, N.Y. Team Drew, comprised of "strategic home experts" who bring more traditional backgrounds of real estate, landscaping, staging and architecture, includes Oliver Aguilar, Chicago; Christy Biberich, West Hollywood, Calif.; David Font, Miami, Fla.; and Brett Karns, Studio City, Calif.

Throughout the series, visitors can enjoy a second-screen experience and play along with the show via the Into Now app, available for download at Apple App Store or Google Play. The app features special behind-the-scenes footage, exclusive videos, polls and trivia questions. In addition, viewers can cast their vote for their favorite group, #TeamDrew or #TeamJonathan via HGTV.com/brothers.
