Hot Properties

Meet the handsome brothers adding sex appeal to television’s home improvement genre

If you were to list the qualities needed to become a television heartthrob, you probably wouldn’t pick “Handy with a nail gun” or “Good with escrow.” But as their HGTV show “Buying & Selling” enters its second season this month, Canadian-born twins Jonathan (right) and Drew Scott (left) are poised to continue the unlikely project of making home improvement sexy.

“We’ve had a lot of work done,” jokes Jonathan, adding that the twins’ public appearances can resemble Justin Bieber concerts.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt that Jonathan and Drew are drop-dead gorgeous, but it’s still a bit of a mystery how a trio of real estate shows—they also host “Property Brothers” and “Brother vs. Brother”—have had fans swooning in 40 countries.

Once they start talking, though, their appeal becomes easier to understand.

It’s not just the twins’ ability to convert a drab laundry room into a fabulous den that draws people in, or even their good looks—it’s the droll, brotherly chitchat.

“Drew sat on my head for nine months in the womb, so we’re pretty close,” says a jaunty Jonathan, discussing their rapport.

 “Jonathan is fairly simple,” quips the ebullient Drew, on the duo’s tendency to finish each other’s sentences, “so it’s easy to guess what he’s going to say.” — (Dec. 4)

    What is not to love about the Scotts- they are handsome, intelligent, knowledgable and communicate with their fans daily. And they have an older brother JD- who is just as handsome and knowledgable also. What a great trio of brothers. My hat off to their parents for raising three very special young men

    I love Jonathan and Drew! Your article is too short! BTW Drew is on the left and Jonathan is on the right! Unless you are referring to it from their perspective! Love the other brother also! JD Scott.

    I love all 3 of their shows! Their sense of humor and the work they do is awesome!!!! I just can’t believe all these people don’t have a clue as to what is going on. I admire their patience when these idiots change their mind at the last minute and then don’t expect it to slow things down at all. You guys are good but, even God couldn’t do what some of them ask for. Keep up the good work guys

    People tend to forget there are actually three of these drop-dead gorgeous Scott Men- and they could actually pass for triplets –except JD is slightly older. Its the beauty within these guys that projects outward and makes even an old women like me remember what its like to have a “crush” on someone, in this case its 3X the crush. They are fun to watch

    I think that Jonathan has a lot more to offer than Drew. cause Jonathan works his —
    off. and Drew is always doing something that is not heavy work. and that is what Jonathan , Does do for a living, any one can be on the Phone, keep up the great work Jonathan. u r great.

    Upbeat interview with a lighthearted feel. Just enough info to draw readers in and make them want to read more. Only thing that is lacking is….. Jonathan is on the (right) and Drew is on the (left). Better luck next time ;)

    Your friendly Vancouver twin

    Need to reread your article Jonathan is on the right and Drew is on the left. I love watching the Property Brothers, Brother vs Brother, and Buying and Selling.

    Chris in your article you have the bothers in the wrong place. Jonathan is on the right and Drew is on the left. I love watching the Property Brothers, Brothers vs Brothers and Buying and Selling. I like when they are being interviewed, and go on talk shows. They just seem like down to earth men.

    I don’t watch the show for your looks although pleasing to the eye, I love the transformations and explanations of why Jonathan selects certain things or why something is out of code. Being female most men (carpenters mechanics etc will take advantage of a woman for her lack of knowledge and over charge or do something that just isn’t necessary. They don’t talk about the communication and the connections the two of you have with the clientele. This is so important in business and the two of you seem to have great connections with people especially with other twins :-) and Jonathan seems to eat a lot what’s up with that??????

    You are the best
    Drew is on the left and Jonathan is on the right.

    Finally, I get to read the article. Yes, Chris Wright, you have it backwards. Jonathen is on the right. I just want to say I love all 3 showing, especially “Property Brothers.” Drew and Jonathen, looks at these homes seeing and showing hope and the great possibilities, not running from the work that is before them.
