And in a bittersweet victory, Jonathan won your votes! If you cast your vote, stay tuned to the HGTV Facebook page for an end-of-season treat.

This week on Brother vs. Brother, Jonathan attempts a comeback by pulling out all the stops for his vacation rental-minded kitchen that he wants to have all of the same "bells and whistles" for as a full-time kitchen — and which is starting from this, by the way:

Yes, that's a fish phone the previous owner left behind.

Meanwhile, Drew wants to keep his winning streak going — is this going to be his season?! — by focusing his attentions on light, light and more light for his cave-like eating area:

For the kitchens challenge, the brothers are at the mercy of their friend and guest judge Brett Waterman, an expert at injecting life back into older homes, as seen on DIY Network’s Restored. Of the winning kitchen — nope, we can’t tell you whose it is! — Brett says, “I could live here full time!”

Here’s a sneak peek at one of the kitchens featured in tonight’s episode — can you guess whose it is?
