This Never-Before-Seen Video of Property Brothers' Jonathan Scott Doing Magic as a Teen is the Best Thing You'll See All Day
Property Brothers’ Drew and Jonathan Scott aren’t shy about sharing adorable (and occasionally embarrassing) throwback photos of themselves on social media — here are some of the best — but there’s one ultimate nerd-out moment even superfans of the HGTV stars haven’t seen.
In this “highlight reel” the TV contractor shared exclusively with PEOPLE, a teenage Jonathan performs a series of illusions amid smoke screens and sweeping spotlights. The tricks include appearing inside a sealed box, spinning his female assistant’s heads around, and making a magic wand float in mid air.
The magic is great, sure, but it’s Scott’s amazingly over-the-top showmanship (a sign of things to come, no doubt), hand flourishes and, yes, dance moves, that are the true highlights.
That fabulous, center-parted 90s haircut and giant leather jacket don’t hurt either.
Jonathan has previously opened up about his love for magic, telling talk show host Chelsea Handler that it was the one thing that actually garnered him the female attention he was hoping for as an awkward teen.
“He was the jock,” Jonathan said of twin brother, 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.”
