Setting out to make yet another spin-off of their wildly popular renovation TV show, Property Brothers, twin brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott were mauled by bears.
The new series “Ultimate Dens” boldly paired the brothers with two grizzly bears who were eager to hibernate and seek the perfect den. To gauge the bears’ desires versus their spending limit, the brothers first took the bears to see a den that was way out of their price range. “We do this in every episode. Sure, it usually angers the buyers but it sets things up for a happy ending,” Jonathan explained.
“We really pissed them off,” Drew said, encased in a full body cast, laying in a hospital bed. “They were not happy when we showed them a den that was almost double their spending limit. When we tried to explain to them that we could create the same den for them at half the cost with a seven-week renovation, that’s when they attacked.”
“You just don’t provoke a wild animal like that. Especially a grizzly,” said zoologist Parker Burns. “They’re lucky to be alive.”
“When we tried to explain to them that we could create the same den for them at half the cost with a seven-week renovation, that’s when they attacked.”
The brothers were viciously attacked and left for dead. Also, because of a psychic connection they have had from birth, each twin takes on the damage his brother suffers, compounding the overall injuries for both of them.
The bears seized the overpriced den and refused to give it back to the owner. Sources claim the bears remain there, now in hibernation.
Though they are in full body casts and not expected to ever fully recover, the brothers remain contractually obligated to continue pumping out spin-offs. “Drew and Jonathan have been good sports. We’ll be providing them with the latest in wheelchair technology so that they can continue making great TV,” said a representative from HGTV.
