Jonathan and Drew Scott are twin reality TV stars known for HGTV’s home improvement series Property Brothers. In addition to their spin-off shows, they run multiple businesses in entertainment and construction. As of 2023, Jonathan and Drew Scott have a combined net worth of $200 million.
Jonathan and Andrew Scott were born on April 28, 1979, as identical twins in Vancouver, British Columbia. Their father Jim, is from Scotland and moved to the US to work in the film industry. They also have an older brother, JD.
Jim left his job to take care of his boys and wife, Joanne. They relocated to Maple Ridge, Canada, and lived on a horse farm. At seven years old, Jonathan and Drew started their first business selling hangers. One woman bought thousands of units from them to sell in Japan.
Later on, they worked as apprentice clowns at parades and parties. Their father also hired them to help flip properties. They went to Thomas Haney Secondary School and later attended University of Calgary.
As teenagers in college, Jonathan and Drew tried different things to make money and even tried acting. The pair bought their first investment property at 18 years old.
At 19, Jonathan left college to work as an illusionist but had to file for bankruptcy at 20 years old. Drew also left school to work as a flight attendant for WestJet.
After his initial failure, Jonathan went to the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology and got his contractor license. In 2004, Drew also earned his real estate license. Around this time, they got minor acting roles in films like Breaker High and Smallville.
With their new qualifications, the twins started Scott Real, Inc and it became a success, eventually opening up three branches. Then, they launched Scott Brothers Entertainment in 2010.
The twin’s independent production firm started out with movies and moved onto television projects. With their platform and skills, the duo created Property Brothers in 2011. The show aired on HGTV and quickly became a hit. Several spin-off series soon followed.
However, it hasn’t all been smooth sailing. In 2021, Las Vegas homeowners Mindy and Paul King sued the brothers’ production company after finding improper renovations.
Net Worth and Salary
Most of the Scott twins’ wealth comes from their Property Brothers franchise. They have created over ten spin-offs from their original show, which earns them around $75,000 to $150,000 per episode.
Their other ventures include the design brand Scott Living, the international production firm Scott Brothers Global, and the lifestyle publication Drew + Jonathan Reveal. Jonathan and Drew Scott each have a $100 million fortune.
