Brother Vs. Brother: Did the Right Contestant Win?

Now that the second season of Brother Vs. Brother is officially over, it’s time to weigh in: Did you agree with Drew and Jonathan’s choice?

Brother Vs. Brother Final Elimination

Watch JD’s interview with the winner, then weigh in below.

Was Melissa the right choice? Who do you think deserved to win the title of Brother Vs. Brother season 2 champion?

  1. Wrong team, wrong winner. I could buy putrid green paint and a cheap looking comforter and call myself a designer too. Where's my 50K? Jonathan's team nailed it. The sliding doors were beautiful and added a spa like touch to the bathroom. The double walk-in closets were a genius use of space. The two vanities added a modern updated touch (double sink vanities are so 1980's). The shower tile and glass door were gorgeous. Buyers want closet space and a toilet that is separated from the rest of the bathroom like Jonathan's team had. I would copy that bathroom if I could build or remodel for myself. Also what did the owners ask for? Closet space! I think Melissa got the "let a woman win" award.

  2. Like others have said… wrong team, wrong winner.

    I wanted Eric to win, but his team lost that challenge and it wasn't even close. The bedrooms were miles apart, and the tiny closet with the door issues is a massive problem. I wasn't a fan of the dual vanities, but they were nowhere near bad enough to close the massive gap in everything else.

    I like HGTV, but are there any shows on this channel that aren't completely fake or rigged?

  3. Are the brothers suddenly color blind? Melissa's paint color choices were awful and the judges commented on the poor color choices in each episode. And the Gawd awful rug in the bedroom? It didn't even belong in the room!

    Oh well, at least Eric did not win; his arrogance was staggering.

  6. I feel Eric Eremita should have won hands down! His work ethic, designs and dedication proved it! His caliber of skills were off the charts and he was always on point and within budget..I have to say as a new viewer of this show I am highly disappointed in the outcome. Melissa was good but she was completely lost without Eric. As an independent woman i'm embarrassed that she pulled the "Crying Act" at the end and you guys fell for it! Eric was robbed like a repeat of Chris/Daughtry in American Idol! Another reality show going for the "Shocker" amazing..I hope to see Eric debut with his own show real soon because he deserves it! #TEAMERICEREMITA

  7. I have to tell you really dropped the ball on this one .The decision that was made on the final episode of Brother vs Brother choosing Melissa instead of Eric was a big mistake!!! Instead of feeling the wow factor which my family and I usually experience when we watch your show we were totally disappointed and confused .We felt Eric Eremita was robbed of the TITLE and RECONGNITION of being the Property Brother Champion . As the audience and judging what we saw week after week we were totally baffled with the decision. Excuse me for saying but WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? It was perfectly clear to us that Eric was the most driven and the most creative and talented competitor. Eric showed that his ideas and the decisions he made were going to be done and executed in the highest manner. Even Melissa stated that she didn't want to lose Eric. What does that tell you! Eric was definitely the leader of the two and should have been chosen as the winner. We strongly believe in Eric's talents and we feel that he would be a great candidate for his own show on HGTV educating audiences how to remodel and redesign their dreary homes into a beautiful and classy home.

  8. I believe Eric should have won from the beginning, he increased the most value of the house every time. Also he was more knowledgable and had more experience than Melissa.

  9. I am a big fan of both Property Brothers and Brother vs. Brother but I have to say the WRONG winner was chosen! Eric should have won hands down. I was watching the show with my family and we could not believe Eric did not win. His work and ideas were beautiful. Esp. the kitchen and the bathroom AMAZING. The colors Melissa picked were not appealing and even the judges commented they did not like it! From someone who just built a new house from the bottom up if I had a "professional designer " who cried because something did not go right, She would not be continuing the job. Eric was able to work under the pressure and that is what you NEED! The tears had to go, but I guess it worked for her and the " I can do anything a man can do" is a little old too! Eric had the best ideas and talent. Melissa even wanted him on her team because of his talent. Eric is a professional designer/contractor he should have WON. Hopefully we will see Eric again on his own show!
