In Wednesday night’s epic finale of HGTV’s Brother vs. Brother, the network’s ultimate home improvement and house flipping contest, Property Brother Jonathan Scott was crowned the winner. The four-episode competition series featured fun-filled sibling rivalry as Jonathan and Drew vied to see who could most successfully renovate and resell a Las Vegas fixer upper. The sale of both brothers’ renovated homes yielded a profit of $88,888 which will be donated to the Southern Nevada affiliate of HGTV’s longtime charitable partner, Rebuilding Together, a national organization that transforms the lives of low-income homeowners by providing critical home repairs to improve the safety and health of their homes and revitalizing the communities in which they live.
The donation will be used for much-needed repairs to a facility owned by Transition Services Inc., a Las Vegas non-profit organization that provides meaningful work for adults with developmental disabilities.
“I will never let him live this down because I won the most important season of Brother vs. Brother,” says Jonathan. “The best part of the competition, however, was donating our profits to Rebuilding Together and seeing those funds being put to good use right here in our hometown of Las Vegas.”
Cynthia Baca, executive director of Rebuilding Together of Southern Nevada, added, “Thanks to the generosity of HGTV, Drew and Jonathan, we are able to support the individuals served through Transition Services Inc., by remodeling one of their training facilities to accommodate additional clientele.”
Brother vs. Brother pitted Jonathan and Drew against each other as they put their home renovation and real estate skills to the test. From demolition to sale, the guys buy two Las Vegas fixer uppers and completely renovate every room with their own money. Each week, Jonathan and Drew went head-to-head in a series of home improvement challenges and, to up the ante, the loser of the challenge faced dares such as dancing in an exotic male revue and wearing an embarrassing costume in the middle of a crowded public place.
