Beverly Hills – HGTV stars Drew and Jonathan Scott are known for their cool, collected demeanors when dealing with clients and couples on their hit show “Property Brothers.”
The star spoke at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour on Thursday at The Beverly Hilton and presented about the lonely, for example when they had to kick a client to the curb because he did not heed to their advice.
“The network and production company work together sometimes I think they cast the people that give me gray hairs. But 99 percent of the homeowners are fantastic and amazing and grateful and grateful as they can be. And then there’s the 1 percent that is sometimes a pain,” Jonathan Scott told reporters.
Although difficult clients are a part of the process, the brothers acknowledged that an extreme circumstance such as this was a rarity.
“It makes for good television, but of all of our shows, we’ve done 320 episodes of the programming – and we had to cancel on the home owner,” said Jonathan. “It was a fireman and I remember his firefighter buddies were going to come and help and we thought this is going to be the sexiest episode ever.”
Johnathan’s twin brother and business partner Drew agreed with the data of the difficult situation on the house-hunt that led to departure from the episode.
“He had a good personality, but we were house-hunting and there was this one house that he really wanted to watch and it was in a neighborhood that was an old landfill,” the broker explained. “They are not properly prepared the ground for the building, so all the houses in the neighborhood were literally sinking. And the inside of the house, the house was falling apart. Well, in the living room, in front of the living room was one of the height, and in the back of the living room, it was completely submerged.”
“It was completely illegal,” Johnathan added.
Drew noted: “He wanted Johnathan to fully cheap out and just the level of the floor, and don’t worry about the structure, so that the back of the room had about a 4-and-a-half-foot ceiling and the front was a normal height.
“So, we filmed all of the bio-and the house-hunt and we found out that the house that he wanted, and said that we don’t participate in the renovation, so we ended up walking away – and unfortunately, he ended up buying the house.”
Jonathan concluded: “We have said that you will never get your money back. That was the only homeowner, thank god – knock on glass that it is the only film that we have ever had to walk away.”
