Jonathan and Drew: Everything You Never Knew About the Bros
Jonathan and Drew Scott — the hosts of Property Brothers — open up to HGTV Magazine about their favorite hobbies, food, music and more.
Here's how the boys relax and unwind when they're off the air.
What sorts of hobbies do you have?
Drew: Playing sports—basketball, volleyball, golf—and coin collecting. Also, going to the gym.
Jonathan: Magic. It’s been a lifelong thing. I’m into the memorabilia, and I do charity shows.
Drew: And we both love music in general.
What was your first concert?
Jonathan: Janet Jackson.
Drew: Puff Daddy & the Family.
What’s a typical Saturday night activity?
Jonathan: Movie and sushi, or an escape room.
Drew: A movie and dinner out.
Name a favorite restaurant.
Drew: Pizzeria Mozza in L.A. The crispy goat cheese is to die for.
Jonathan: Gordon Ramsay Steak at the Paris Las Vegas hotel.
What do you like doing with friends?
Drew: We’ll have people over. At the Vegas house, there’s giant Jenga and Connect 4 in the backyard, and a game room with every kind you can imagine, including ones that make you act like an idiot. The best!
Their Favorite Hobbies
Jonathan: “On weekends I try to hit the courts and play basketball or tennis. I’m not half bad!”
Drew: “Since I’m in a different city every few months, I have a ClassPass membership, which lets me try different fitness classes, like barre or hot yoga.”
Both: “We’ll play pickup basketball or beach volleyball with our crew whenever we can.” —Drew
Jonathan: “The song I can’t get out of my head: ‘Delicate’ by Taylor Swift.”
Drew: “I listen to a few podcasts and especially like Terry Gross’s awesome interviews on NPR’s ‘Fresh Air.’ ”
Both: "When friends come over for karaoke, there’s a good chance we’ll sing something from Grease. I do Olivia Newton-John and Jonathan is John Travolta.” —Drew
Jonathan: "Is there a better TV show to binge-watch than HBO’s Game of Thrones?”
Drew: “My favorite movie is The Last of the Mohicans. It’s beautifully written and acted.”
Jonathan: “A friends-night-in staple for me is fondue. It’s all about the presentation!”
Drew: “On Sundays, [my wife] Linda and I hit flea markets and hole-in-the-wall shops for coins and antiques.”
Jonathan: “The book we’re loving right now is the kids’ book we just wrote, of course.”
Drew: “Spyfall is such a fun game because you can see your friends try to be strategic. Some people would make the worst spies!”
Jonathan: “It’s great that Vegas finally has a hockey team. The Golden Knights are doing amazingly. Now we just need an NBA team.”
