Brother vs. Brother No Rules: The Concept

Sibling rivalry is back and better than ever in the Season 8 of HGTV's Brother vs. Brother. Once again, Property Brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott compete to flip their chosen homes and sell them for a higher price than their twin. Only this time, there were no renovation rules: When it came to budgets and locations around Los Angeles, the possibilities were endless.

Drew's House Selection

Jonathan was drawn to the ocean and assumed spending more upfront was the wiser flipping decision. Conversely, Drew made his way to the suburbs of Los Angeles to find the perfect reno-ready home. There, he found a 1,250-square-foot house with three bedrooms, one and a half baths and a freestanding garage — but that's not all. The home also featured a separate two-bedroom, one-bathroom guest suite and a three-tiered backyard. In total, the property cost $850,000 — "which actually feels like a steal compared to what others are going for in the neighborhood," Drew shared in the first episode.

The Why Behind the House

“There were two things I really wanted when I was looking for my house," Drew revealed. "I wanted a fixer-upper that I could treat as a complete blank slate, and I also wanted a well-established suburban neighborhood, which I found in El Sereno, just outside of South Pasadena. It’s an area with a lot of multi-generation families looking for a newly renovated house — something I plan on giving them.”

Before: The Living Room and Entryway

From the start, Drew admitted his house was in worse shape than Jonathan's. "Sure, Jonathan’s house is in better condition than mine, but I can make the more impressive transformation, which means more profit in the end and another win for me," he said. To do so, Drew planned to spend $600,000 in renovation costs, with $75,000 dedicated to the living room and entryway. In the end, he hoped to sell the remodeled home for $1.7 million.
