Exit Interview: First to Go on Team Jonathan

With Team Jonathan’s first loss comes its first loss of a teammate, as well. The first to go? Joe.

Joe goes home from Team Jonathan on Brother Vs. Brother

His ambitious plan to build a huge built-in cabinet and a kitchen island in just three days was his downfall. “You have to finish everything you start…I love Joe’s ideas, I love everything he does, but he just takes on too much,” mentor Jonathan says.

“Building a cabinet like that in three days is ludicrous, and I still did it. I shouldn’t have,” Joe says. Joe’s elimination means that the “team within a team” he formed with his brother, Rick, is no more. Of course, Rich took Joe’s elimination pretty hard. “I don’t think Joe deserves to go home. He’s the reason why I got into this competition, ” Rick says.

See JD Scott’s full interview with Rick, Joe, Jonathan and the whole team.

    • i am a big fan of the show and love their technique and their dedication to their clients. My daughter and her family reside in las vegas and are about to purchase a home. Sara was caught in the big fall out when she basically lost her first home drastically due to drop in home prices. She lost her dad 2008 after a motorcycle accident on easter sunday and sara had to identify her dad by his billfold. she was daddys girl and has his determination and wants to make him proud. I am hoping this will show you to not take advantage of time… these guys do a good job…just wished I could get them to come here to help my family because I trust them and only see them on TV…sorry you feel so hard against the brothers.
