New York [For Immediate Release—December 15, 2016] Jonathan Scott emerged victorious over his brother Drew Scott during last night’s finale of the popular HGTV home reno competition series Brothers Take New Orleans. The four-episode series, which attracted more than 11 million viewers since it premiered on Wednesday, November 23, at 9 p.m. ET/PT, followed the competitive twins as they renovated side-by-side shotgun-style homes ruined by Hurricane Katrina. A panel of local real estate experts determined that Jonathan added the most property value with his smart renovations—edging out a victory over Drew by a slim margin of just $6,600.

The two newly renovated properties will be given back to the community by SBP, a New Orleans-based non- profit organization whose mission is to minimize the time between disaster and recovery. The brothers and their teams celebrated the completely transformed homes in true Big Easy fashion by hosting their very own parade complete with a booming brass band, colorful confetti, twirling parasols, jubilant jazz music and, of course, lots of dancing.

“This has been the best,” said Jonathan. “New Orleans is absolutely one of my favorite cities: the food, the people and the atmosphere—you can’t beat getting your own parade! This is the only way to win!”

“It’s been so much fun,” added Drew. “I love the finished house. Not only did we transform it inside and out, we also get to give it back to the community and in the end, even though Jonathan won, I feel we are all winners.”

Throughout the series, produced by Scott Brothers Entertainment, Jonathan and Drew faced off in weekly room reno competitions and invited special guests to judges to determine which brother had the better design. Each episode also showcased the brothers as they visited famous New Orleans landmarks, experienced the historic culture and mingled with locals along the way.

“Mark my words—I will get the next one,” said Drew.

“You did say that last time I beat you, too,” joked Jonathan.
