With all the controversies surrounding some of HGTV’s stars, the “Property Brothers” for their part, decided to clear the air.
According to a report by Fox News, Drew and Jonathan Scott said that they are open to having other HGTV stars judging their work. “We’re one big family, which is why we love bringing [fellow HGTV personalities] in to judge us,” explained Drew. “We legit let them judge us any way they want.”
Moreover, the twins also admitted that they were surprised upon hearing rumors that they were in a feud with the hosts of “Fixer Upper,” Chip and Joanna Gaines. “We know a lot of the [HGTV] talent really well. Our show starting airing in 2011 and over that time we’ve met [Chip and Joanna] once or twice. They were really nice,” Drew added.
A report by PEOPLE explained that rumors of the alleged feud started to swirl online after the twins’ New York Times interview last month. In the interview, the twins mentioned that they invited the Gaineses to appear on their “Bother vs Brother” spin-off show. The couple, however, reportedly turned down the invitation.
Despite seeing their invitation turned down, the twins clarified that there is really no room or reason to start a feud. “Chip and Joanna keep it to where they live in Waco and do their own thing, where Drew and I, we travel around,” explained Jonathan. He also added that the thrust of their shows is very different.
Furthermore, Drew said that having Jonathan to compete with in a friendly manner is enough to spice things up. “When we compete it’s not to knock each other down. We push each other to do better.” We’re not malicious, but we do prank each other and have fun,” he explained.
In the New York Times interview, the twins also admitted some of their scenes were fake. They confessed that at least one of the scenes from “Property Brothers” in Galveston took multiple shots to produce a perfect scene.
