New York [For Immediate Release - Thursday, April 27, 2017] HGTV stars Jonathan and Drew Scott will face-off in Galveston, Texas, for a new season of the network's popular real estate and renovation competition Brother vs. Brother: Jonathan vs. Drew. Premiering Wednesday, May 31, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, the series arms the popular twins with $600,000 each and six weeks of time to purchase and transform drab waterfront homes into stunning vacation retreats.

With older brother JD acting as referee and a star-studded panel of HGTV and DIY Network guest judges serving as challenge reviewers, Jonathan and Drew will go head-to-head in daunting home-related trials. The weekly challenge loser will be forced to endure miserable outings such as riding a terrifying amusement park attraction, climbing an 81-foot obstacle ropes course or heading out to sea to catch shrimp for the winner's dinner. Each week the challenge winner will enjoy all the fun Galveston offers, including exhilarating flyboarding in the bay, playing with penguins at the local aquarium and zip-lining at beautiful local attraction Moody Gardens.

Fellow HGTV stars Eric and Lindsey Bennett (Desert Flippers), David Bromstad (My Lottery Dream Home), Tiffany Brooks (HGTV Smart Home), Karen E Laine and Mina Starsiak (Good Bones), and Egypt Sherrod (Flipping Virgins) as well as DIY Network hosts Ben Sargent (Backyard Goldmine) and Brett Waterman (Restored) will travel to Galveston to decide which brother wins each weekly match.

"I've won the past two years, fair and square," said Jonathan. "Three times is a charm and this is the competition where that is going to happen."

"For me, failure is not an option," said Drew. "This year, I'm going to win or die trying."

Produced by Scott Brothers Entertainment, with Jonathan and Drew as executive producers, Brother vs. Brother: Jonathan vs. Drew is a fun way to kick-off summertime viewing. Fans also can visit HGTV.com/brothers each week for videos of the duo's finished spaces and to vote for which redesigned room they believe rose to the top. During the season finale, the weekly "fan favorites" will be revealed. Viewers can also interact via social media using #BroVsBro.

All proceeds from Brother vs. Brother: Jonathan vs. Drew home sales will go back to local communities via Rebuilding Together - a national U.S. non-profit organization that preserves affordable homeownership and helps to revitalize neighborhoods by providing free home repairs and modifications to low-income homeowners.

The New York Times best-selling authors Jonathan and Drew Scott also star in HGTV's Emmy(R)-nominated series Property Brothers and will be featured in a new installment of Property Brothers at Home: Drew's Honeymoon House this fall.
