Brother vs. Brother readies San Fran premiere

Do-it-yourself home improvement superstars Jonathan and Drew Scott will return for a new season of Brother vs. Brother: Jonathan vs. Drew on HGTV in the United States.

Premiering on Wednesday 23 May, the six-episode season will be set in the San Francisco suburbs. With just six weeks to buy, transform and sell two unique homes in the Bay Area’s hot real estate market, the brother who earns the highest net profit will claim victory. Each week, older brother JD will serve as the referee for the home renovation challenges, while guest stars from HGTV or DIY Network will evaluate and choose their favourite design.

During the series, HGTV stars Leanne and Steve Ford (Restored by the Fords), Bristol and Aubrey Marunde (Flip or Flop Vegas), Egypt Sherrod (Flipping Virgins), and Mina Starsiak and Karen E Laine (Good Bones), as well as DIY Network favourite Scott McGillivray (Buyers Bootcamp with Scott McGillivray) will decide which brother wins each weekly match.

The weekly challenge loser in the fierce flipping competition will complete unpleasant dares such as cleaning out the giraffe moat at the Oakland Zoo and stomping a barrel of sticky grapes in Napa. On the other hand, the challenge winner will live it up as he gets to visit — and name — a baby wallaroo in a private zoo tour and enjoy a gourmet meal and VIP wine tasting while overlooking a picturesque vineyard.

All proceeds from the Brother vs. Brother: Jonathan vs. Drew home sales will go back to local communities via Rebuilding Together—a national US non-profit organization that preserves affordable homeownership and helps to revitalise neighbourhoods by providing free home repairs and modifications to low-income homeowners.
