Watch a Sneak Peek of the Finale

In less than three days, there will be a new champion of Brother Vs. Brother. Can you believe it?

Brother Vs. Brother Season 2 Finale

The Final Four: Adi, Rick, Melissa and Eric

As you know, Adi is the sole survivor of Team Jonathan, while Team Drew has a crew of three with Rick, Melissa and Eric. The brothers really like to keep things fair (aren’t they sweet?!), so they sent Rick back to Team Jonathan, making both teams nice and even.

Rick and Adi are back in action, as if they were never on competing teams. And as always, we’re wondering: “Will Adi finish the project?!” Over on Team Drew, tensions are running high. Eric seemingly takes control of, well, everything, leaving Melissa in tears of frustration. Talk about a can’t-miss finale!

Team Jonathan just keeps dwindling down…

Team Jonathan’s Peggy and Adi at elimination.

On Sunday night’s episode of Brother Vs. Brother, Jonathan had to send home yet another skilled teammate. Now he’s heading into the finale with a crew of one. When it came down to the elimination, Jonathan decided to keep Adi, the experienced craftsman. Peggy’s exit left even Adi emotional. “Peggy surprised me. She’s proved that if you work hard and if you believe in yourself, you can make it all the way to the end,” says Adi.

Hear what Peggy has to say following her difficult exit, plus take a look back at her top moments throughout the season.

Brother Vs. Brother Behind the Scenes: Episode 5

The on-call EMT has certainly become a well-known “crew member” this season on Brother Vs. Brother. Between Adi’s leg, Rick’s fingers (not shown) and Eric’s head, the injuries have started stacking up pretty quickly.

While trying to remove a glass cube from the kitchen wall, it explodes on Eric.

If you saw our last “Ask the Producer” post, producer Loren Ruch reiterated the importance of safety on set. Although an injury-free season is the ultimate goal, construction is a dangerous game. Why has this season been so injury prone? “They’re fighting so hard that they’re sacrificing their bodies,” says talent coordinator Mike Greggs.

Online host and older bro JD Scott talks to the brothers and the on-call EMT about this season’s injuries. See what they have to say about the minor setbacks that have affected both teams.

On this Sunday’s episode, it’s two against three but Team Jonathan is still as confident as ever.

Going into the fourth challenge, Team Jonathan was leading the competition two to one. Not only that, but Team Jonathan had a team of four heading into the colonial remodel, compared to Team Drew’s team of two. To even the playing field, the bros let Team Drew members Melissa and Eric pluck a member from Team Jonathan.

Exit Interviews: It’s Double Elimination Time

Brother Vs Brother Third Elimination

Left: Team Jonathan | Right: Team Drew

I really hope you all have caught up, because there’s a spoiler coming your way. Sunday’s episode of Brother Vs. Brother brought a whole different set of challenges to the contestants; they had not only the stress of the renovation on their hands, but the worry of a double elimination on their shoulders, too. One team is heading into the fourth challenge with a crew of four, while the other is left with two.

Online host and older brother JD Scott was on set during and after the double elimination to chat with both contestants about their time on the show and thoughts on going home. And for the first time in Brother Vs. Brother history, a contestant actually volunteered to leave. Find out all the details:

Illness Sends Drea Home

Brother Vs. Brother Drea Clark

Episode one was a little weird because there wasn’t an elimination per se. An hour into the challenge, Team Drew member Drea Clark had to withdraw from the competition due to illness. It looked like Team Jonathan already had an edge on his brother and the renos were just getting started. Drea packed her bags and headed home without even getting to showcase her stellar design skills. We’re sorry we didn’t get to see you compete, Drea.
