What’s different about this season of Brother Vs. Brother? What can viewers expect to see?
It’s a whole new season of Brother vs. Brother, and I think that our viewers are going to love it because this time it’s PERSONAL! Jonathan and Drew used their own money to buy their own flips, and we have no teams and no judges other than the buying public to determine who wins in the end. Plus, we’re in their hometown of Las Vegas, so it’s also a fun view into their worlds and lives in LV. And my favorite part of the show, is that we have some of HGTV’s biggest stars swinging by each week to pick their favorite space, and the losing brother has to do an embarrassing dare as the consequence. Let me tell you…if nothing else, you will laugh your way through the season when you see these dares!
Since the brothers don’t have anyone to send home each episode, what’s the winner’s prize each week?
It’s not so much about the winner’s prize each week as it as about the humiliation of the losing brother! The only real winner comes at the end of the series when real buyers determine which home sells for the bigger profit.
Are Drew and Jonathan as competitive off-camera as they are on camera?
Even more so! They got so competitive that there were moments we couldn’t even show on TV! At one point one of the guys took the air out of the other’s tires so that he couldn’t make it to his jobsite! It’s all in fun, but they are very, very, very competitive…can I add a few more ‘verys’?
Can you share some fun moments we’ll see this season from the celeb guests?
The celebrity guests are so fun! We have the Hatmakers from Your Big Family Renovation in our first episode, David Bromstad and Josh Temple in the second (and they are goofballs!), and then Hilary Farr and David Visentin from Love It or List It in the third. You won’t believe the fight that Hilary and David had over choosing their favorite house — you need to see it to believe it!
The Brother Vs. Brother promo is amazing! Care to divulge any from-the-set secrets?
The promo shoot was over the top! It was done at a huge warehouse in LA, and we turned it into a boxing ring. I’ll give away one little secret…A few of the concrete blocks were actually made from foam (see picture) so we all felt like heavy weight champions! Check out the promo here:
