Brother Vs. Brother: Inside Episode One

Brother Vs Brother Francis Toumbakaris

Shannon and Francis during the first challenge

Francis … where do I start with this ball of energy? If you recall, he’s a Greek [former] dancer turned contractor/designer living in New York City. He created quite a stir with his teammates after choosing a neon green paint color for the walls in the kitchen. Yup. So, after the first episode we learned a few things about Francis:

  • He likes to add a signature touch to every space, even in the form of highlighter-toned hues.
  • He wears suspenders like nobody’s business.
  • He has a flair for the dramatic.
  • He will break out in dance moves at any time.

And my favorite Francis quote yet: “The camera lens is my biggest lover.” Did you miss that one? It’s in the behind-the-scenes video below, where Francis also showcases some of his professional dance moves.

This is going to be a fun season to watch, especially if this guy sticks around for a while. Check out “unfiltered Francis” and hear what Jonathan, Drew and his teammates have to say about his extra-large personality.

We’re one challenge in — do you have a favorite team or contestant (#TeamJonathan or #TeamDrew)? Tell us in the comments below.
