Reality TV stars Jonathan and Drew Scott, hosts of the popular HGTV show, “Property Brothers,” took part in a recent interview with The New York Times that gives readers an inside look at just how “real” some of the scenes are.

In a succinct synopsis of the Scott brothers’ colloquy with The Times, the Huffington Post did a piece focusing on how parts of the show are indeed “fake” … while taking note that the brothers are “refreshingly transparent” about that.

More from Huffington on fabricated scenes from the popular show:

The piece starts out with Jonathan and a producer reshooting a scene for one of the twins’ shows, called “Brother vs. Brother.” For this particular shot, the 39-year-old HGTV star is “acting surprised” as he’s taking out a toilet from a house he’s working on.

“Let’s do it one more time,” the producer tells Jonathan.

In another scene, Drew and his producer recreate a “high-intensity moment” for a chimney that ripped off the roof the previous day due to high winds.

“At the end of the day, it has to be interesting television,” Jonathan told the Times. “But when we find a load-bearing wall, we are really finding a load-bearing wall.”

 

The article notes that “other HGTV shows reportedly reshoot or tweak scenes,” based on what people who have appeared on the shows have said.

Naming the highly popular show, “Fixer Upper,” which came under attack by the left because of the Christian beliefs of hosts Chip and Joanna Gaines, Huffington pointed to David Ridley, who appeared on the show and said the home-buying process isn’t what is seems.

“You have to be under contract to be on the show,” Ridley explained to Fox News. They show you other homes but you already have one. After they select you, they send your house to Chip and Joanna and their design team.”

As for politics, while the brothers respect that some of their fans support President Donald Trump, Jonathan is not too keen on the real estate tycoon.

“I believe our show is about finding solutions for the little guy, and I think the current administration is doing stuff that is counterproductive to serving the little guy,” said the first-born “older” twin.

Having said that, the Scott brothers may not mind getting their renovating hands on the White House, based on an observation by Drew.

“There is a lot of great character you would want to keep,” he said after a private tour in the final days before Barack Obama left office. “But there are a lot of things that are due for an update.”
