We know that twin brothers and HGTV fan favorites Drew and Jonathan Scott are good-looking, talented and ever-so-popular with the ladies; but are there any secrets lurking beneath those tall, dark and handsome exteriors? Let’s find out! Did you know…

They surprised their parents from birth.

Surprise! Their parents didn’t know they were having twins until the doctor saw Drew shortly after Jonathan was born. That had to be some shocking news, but lucky for Drew, no one could be disappointed with that face!

They know karate. 

Drew and Jonathan both earned 2nd-degree black belts and won multiple Canadian National Championships.

They've been on screen beyond HGTV. 

Both Drew and Jonathan have experience in acting. Drew was on an episode of Smallville, while Jonathan was on The X-Files

The Scott brothers = child real estate prodigies.

The brothers bought their first house when they were only 17 years old! In college, they didn’t waste any time before flipping a house for a $50,000 profit. 

They work behind the camera, too. 

They own Scott Brothers Entertainment with their older brother, JD. When he’s not impressing homebuyers with his amazing finds, Drew’s passionate about directing and producing.

Jigs and reels are in their blood. 

Because of their Scottish heritage, Drew and Jonathan were competitive bagpipers as children. Jonathan claims to have taken home all the medals, but Drew looks like he's holding his own in this picture.

They're right at home on the range. 

They grew up on a ranch in Vancouver, Canada, and started riding horses by the time they were 3 years old.

Jonathan has some tricks up his sleeve. 

Jonathan loves time on the stage so much that he can often be found performing illusions in Las Vegas. He even made his own props as a kid! See how he uses magic to entertain Drew on the road:

Drew enjoys clowning around. 

Or at least, he used to. He performed as a clown until he tired of the costumes and face paint. Here, both brothers try out the look:
