If you’ve ever spent a hungover Sunday morning napping to HGTV, you’re familiar with Drew and Jonathan Scott aka “The Property Brothers”. If you’re not familiar, you obviously don’t watch enough TV and we can’t be friends.
The two are giant, generally attractive Canadian twins, and they sell and fix real estate on television.
They’re an HGTV staple because they’re easy to watch and they deal with people’s real estate bullshit way better than anyone else on the planet. If a regular contractor had to deal with the bozos on their show, there would be murder investigations galore.
Pretty much every fucking episode goes down like this: Susan decides she wants a gas stove in the house that is entirely electric and Jim can’t deal with carpet in the bedroom but won’t shell out the cash for a place with hardwood. They also want a house in a top-notch neighborhood that’s move-in ready and they have a budget of like, $500. In other words, the people on this show are consistently nightmares. Jonathan and Drew Scott don’t kill these nightmare people, therefore, they deserve a show.
So we’re all OK with them hosting 15 different shows on HGTV, but their new venture might have you, like, super confused.
They’re trying to be country music stars now.
TBH their first two songs aren’t entirely terrible. Then again, they aren’t spectacular either. So that leaves everyone feeling super awkward because they don’t give you enough material to make fun of, yet you probably wouldn’t download their songs to your device from Apple Music.
Unlike Sam Hunt, who you’d totes invite over for a house party (see what I did there?) if the Scott brothers came to your house you’d just be like, “Yeah, I have some pictures you can hang up. Do you think you could fix my backsplash while you’re at it? Also, please don’t sing.”
They’re kind of ruining the sanctity of HGTV. At least we still have Chip and Joanna, right?
