WATCH: The Property Brothers on Girlfriends, Using Magic to Get Dates and Pole Dancing
HGTV stars Jonathan and Drew Scott get personal — and racy — on Netflix's Chelsea
Jonathan and Drew Scott got NSF-HGTV on Chelsea Handler’s Netflix talk show on Wednesday.
The twin stars of the wildly popular series Property Brothers (and no fewer than four current spin-offs) are known for their playful on-screen antics and their legion of adoring fans. But the duo’s appearance on Chelsea, where they were promoting the latest season of their original series, which premiers October 12, and their book, veered into some risqué territory they don’t often broach on more wholesome programming.
Drew sets the tone introducing them as “twins who do tight jeaned renovations in slow motion.” And things only escalate from there: “Have you ever thought about being with twins and [Ken] Boner [sic]?” asks Jonathan, referencing Handler’s earlier segment about the breakout star of the second presidential debate, Kenneth Bone. The latter, at one point, even climbs into the host’s lap.
The Scotts also talk about their much-hypothesized-about relationships — yes, they’re both in one — sharing that Drew has been with his girlfriend for six years, and Jonathan has “just started seeing someone. Her name is Jacinta,” he says.
The pair met at a charity event but parted ways without exchanging contact information. “I went back to try and . . . see if somebody knows who she is and she was like a ghost. Nobody knew who she was,” Jonathan details.
The pair, who have now been together six months, reconnected after, he says, “a friend of mine posted a picture and she was in the background.”
Before finding love, however, Jonathan in particular admits he struggled in the romance department. “I literally learned everything I could try to do to get a date, and it did not work when I was younger,” he says. “I heard people love musicians so I took up the bagpipes.” The one act that did draw the female attention he was hoping for? Magic.
“He was the jock,” Jonathan says of Drew. “So we’d be at a party and he’d be like ‘you’re not going to talk to anybody.’ And I would have this swarm of girls around me because I was doing magic. And he’d be like dribbling a basketball in the corner and masturbating.”
Previously, their most deviant televised moment was likely Jonathan performing in an all-male review as punishment for losing a challenge on Brother vs. Brother.
