Jonathan and Drew Scott are identical twins who, for the last eight years, have been the reigning princes of TV home renovation. They are the stars of the HGTV series, "Property Brothers." Not to mention their spin-offs, including "Buying and Selling," "Brother vs. Brother," "Property Brothers at Home," "At Home on the Ranch," and "Drew's Honeymoon House," and their furniture line, Scott Living. The secret to their success? According to them, the fact that they're just nice guys having fun. Another Secret? "We know that slow-motion renovations in tight jeans make for a great episode," said Drew. For those who aren't familiar with their story, Jonathan is the contractor in the flannel shirt; Drew is the realtor, usually wearing a tie. "We do three months in a city, then we move on to the next one," Drew said. "We do 17 projects at a time. We do 45 renos a year." Jonathan is the older one, by four minutes.
