THE SCOTT BROTHERS

Jonathan and Drew Scott

Entrepreneurs, TV personalities, and best-selling authors, Jonathan and Drew Scott are co-founders of Scott Brothers Global, which includes Scott Brothers Entertainment and Scott Living.

The Scott brothers are hosts of multiple top-rated HGTV series including the Emmy- nominated Property Brothers, Brother vs. Brother and Property Brothers at Home. Their shows are watched by millions of fans in over 150 countries. Jonathan, a renowned designer and licensed contractor, and Drew, a seasoned agent and real estate expert, have bought and renovated real estate for over 20 years. The twin brothers have a rare knack for finding fixer-uppers and turning them into stunning properties, all while entertaining audiences and followers alike with their winning blend of sibling rivalry and humor. They are bona fide social media stars as well, with a social reach of more than seven million combined across their social media accounts.

In addition to their on-screen and social media success, Drew and Jonathan are a rising global lifestyle brand with multiple extensions into music, media and retail. They co-founded Scott Brothers Entertainment, which produces award-winning and engaging content in all genres for TV, film and digital platforms. The Scott brothers expanded their brand with the creation of Scott Living, a collection of home goods including indoor furniture, décor, textiles and bedding, available at a variety of North American retailers including Amazon, QVC and Lowe’s. 

Having grown up on a ranch, spending evenings strumming guitars and singing around campfires, Drew and Jonathan have a true passion for music. In 2015, they wrote and recorded two original tracks, “Hold On” and “Let the Night Shine In,” with Victoria Shaw and Chad Carlson. Their music video for “Hold On” received over 4 million views on both Vevo and YouTube, helping the song hit the Billboard Hot Country charts within the first month of its release. In January 2017, the Scott brothers put their own country spin on Flo Rida’s wildly-popular single “My House” with 100% of the single’s proceeds being donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

In September 2017, Jonathan and Drew released their memoir, It Takes Two: Our Story. In April 2016, they released Dream Home: The Property Brothers’ Ultimate Guide To Finding & Fixing Your Perfect House, a comprehensive guide for any first-time homebuyers as well as existing homeowners looking to upgrade their space. Both books quickly became New York Times and Wall Street Journal best sellers.

Outside of their career endeavors, both Drew and Jonathan were recently named Habitat Humanitarians by Habitat for Humanity. Their wide-ranging philanthropic contributions include working with a variety of charities such as The American Red Cross and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, among others. The brothers are also very active when it comes to environmental responsibility and the advancement of clean, renewable energies. For the past two years, Jonathan has co-hosted 24 Hours of Reality with former Vice President Al Gore. Both events were incredibly successful.

Drew was recently a finalist on the 25th season of ABC’s wildly-popular Dancing with the Stars.

The brothers have been featured on The Today Show, The View, Live with Kelly and Ryan, The Rachael Ray Show, Good Morning America, Bloomberg TV and Entertainment Tonight, among others, as well as in People, Forbes, Fast Company, Money, Parade, USA Today, Men’s Health, Redbook, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and more.


DIANA DEGARMO

 
 

For over the last decade, Diana DeGarmo has been blowing away audiences with her powerful voice and irresistible charm.  Fans first grew to love Diana on the cultural phenomenon, AMERICAN IDOLwhere she placed second at the mere age of 16. Shortly after, Diana released her first single "Dreams" that reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart. She made her Broadway debut at only 18 in the role of Penny Pingleton in HAIRSPRAY, solidifying her spot amongst the Broadway Divas. Her comedy chops and big voice brought down the house again in the Off Broadway cult hit, THE TOXIC AVENGER as Sarah the blonde, blind, librarian. Splitting her time between her beloved home in Nashville and the rest of the world, Diana made a name for herself on the #1 Daytime TV Drama, THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, creating the vivacious and wild character, Angelina.

While in Los Angeles, Diana revised her beloved role as Penny Pingleton in HAIRSPRAY at the Hollywood Bowl starring Drew Carey and Corbin Bleu. All the while releasing two of her own EPs, "Unplugged in Nashville" and "Live to Love" that included the hit song "Good Goodbye" that was showcased during her reign on THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS. In 2010, she joined the Broadway revival of HAIR where she met now husband, Ace Young.  Soon the two became a dynamic duo writing and singing songs for TV Shows and Films and touring together in JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT and multiple times with the USO. Diana has also taken her talents on the road with the First National Broadway Tours of BKYLN: THE MUSICAL and 9 TO 5, where she was handpicked to play Doralee by the one and only Dolly Parton herself! She recently returned home to Nashville from touring South Korea while starring as Lucy in JEKYLL & HYDE alongside Kyle Dean Massey.  Diana was an active actor as a child growing up in Georgia, but her most recent films include ALTO, AFTER THE SUN FELL and THE FIRST RIDE OF WYATT EARP. Diana is a one-of-a-kind entertainer who has always wanted her career to not be just a shooting star but an entire galaxy.
