Drew Scott Dishes: Five Scenes That Got Cut from Property Brothers
When we do flips, like on Brother vs. Brother, we are investing our own money, so we’re not necessarily working with homeowners, but we are indeed letting the buyers decide our fate. Because of that, the stress really falls on our shoulders as we try to get these projects done. Some are easier than others, and we’ve learned the hard way that in this biz you just have to accept the unexpected. Here are some of my “favourite” do-overs, thanks to the gods of Reality Interruptus:
1. Attack of the Crazy Neighbour
While filming a Property Brothers scene, my clients, Jonathan, and I were walking up to a house to tour, and a crazy neighbour came running out of her house with a large chef’s knife in hand, screaming that we were trying to rob her and she was going to call the police. I could see why she might think Jonathan was some drifter up to no good, but I was standing there in suit and tie. “I must be the best-dressed robber you’ve ever seen,” I politely pointed out. I explained that we were touring the house next door to hers, and she finally calmed down.
