Brother vs Brother – Casting Guide

Brother vs Brother is a spin-off of the popular HGTV show “Property Brothers”. The show is produced by Cineflex and stars Drew Scott and Jonathan Scott who are real life siblings. The two have been in the real estate business for more than 15 years, and their shows play off the rivalry between the realtor and contractor. The show is a season long elimination show in which each week one of the contestants is sent home. In each episode, the home renovators are challenged with fixing up a house, and the team which adds the least amount of value to the house loses a member.
