Jonathan and Drew Scott are twin reality television celebrities known for starring in HGTV’s home improvement series Property Brothers and the spin-offs that came after it. In addition to their media appearances, they have made successful business endeavors. As of 2022, Jonathan and Drew Scott have a combined net worth of $200 million.
On April 28, 1979, Jonathan Ian Scott and Andrew Alfred Scott were born as identical twins in Vancouver, British Columbia. They have an older brother named JD. Their father, Jim, is from Scotland and moved to the US to work in the film industry.
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. There, Jonathan and Drew started their first business by selling hangers at age seven. 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 then to the University of Calgary.
As teenagers in college, Jonathan and Drew tried different things. They took their shot at acting, but to support their expenses, they also invested in real estate. They bought their first house at 18.
At 19, Jonathan left college to be an illusionist but was later robbed. He had to file for bankruptcy when he was 20. Drew also left school to be a flight attendant at WestJet.
After his initial failure, Jonathan went to the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology and got his license as a contractor. In 2004, Drew also earned his real estate certification. 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. It became a success and eventually got three branches since its creation in 2004. Then, they launched Scott Brothers Entertainment in 2010.
The twin’s independent production firm started out with movies but later moved to television projects. With their platform and skills, the duo created Property Brothers in 2011. It aired on HGTV and quickly became a hit. Several spin-off series came after it.
However, it wasn’t all good news for them. In 2021, Las Vegas homeowners Mindy and Paul King sued the brothers’ production company after they discovered improper renovations.
Net Worth and Salary
Most of the Scott twins wealth comes from their Property Brothers franchise. They have created a total of over ten spin-offs from their original show, which earns them around $75,000 to $150,000 every 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 $100 million in net worth.
Jonathan was once married to WestJet employee Kelsy Ully, but they split up in 2010. He is now dating actress Zooey Deschanel. On the other hand, Drew is married to entrepreneur Linda Phun. They tied the knot in 2018.
