(Drew) From 10 competitors down to 4, tonight is the first ever "Brother vs. Brother" finale.
Welcome to the final challenge, guys.
Y'all in trouble.
Now, both houses are identical, and the homeowners are, as well.
Here ya go.
(Jonathan) Coming up, the teams face their greatest challenge yet.
You're killin' it, and we are killin' them !
The other team always called us the boring team,
so please, let's make sure that we're really adding the most value.
We have to make every decision count.
All of the judges return.
I have to say, really incredible.
It actually looks like a bigger house.
And in the end, only one winner will be crowned.
We've decided that the first champion
of "Brother vs. Brother" is...
Hey, gang--welcome to the final challenge, guys!
(Jonathan) Very exciting.
You four have earned the right to be here with your hard work,
but keep in mind, in a few days, only one of you
will be crowned champion and win $50,000.
Well, hey, I gotta say, I'm proud of Team Drew.
Three of you have made it to the final challenge,
and only Torche has made it from team Jonathan.
I'm scared--there's no one else on my team.
Team Jonathan lost the last challenge, so Mark was sent home.
(Drew) But I want to challenge Jonathan at his best, so we're gonna even things up.
So Drew and I think the perfect person to join Torche...
would be Monica.
Oh, lord, y'all in trouble.
Now it's girls versus guys, and Torche
is really gonna help my chances of winning.
We're standing in front of one of the two houses that you'll be working on.
This was built in 1978-- it has four bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Now, we're not gonna do an assessment challenge this time,
because both houses are worth $330,000.
In fact, the other house is almost identical to this one.
It's actually not just the houses that are identical...
Here you go, we have Nate and Matt.
Right now with all these twins walking around, it's getting wild and crazy and weird.
Twins are amazing.
I'm sure you guys are gonna do something wonderful.
Thank you, guys, for entrusting your houses to our finalists.
(both) Thank you.
We wanted the houses to be as equal as possible in value
because this time, the entire losing team is eliminated.
You'll have three days and $30,000 to get the work done.
We need you to impress us in every way possible,
because Jonathan and I will choose the champion
from the two members of the winning team.
Oh my gosh--Torche and I have to win this if one of us wants to come out champion.
All right, Team Drew, we won the last challenge.
I have two tiles-- one says Jonathan, one says Drew.
Whichever name you pick out of the bucket, that's the team that will renovate this house.
David, come on over here and pick a name.
All right, sounds good-- Team Drew, we've gotta head over to the other place.
(Drew) Good luck to you guys.
(Brett) Bye, guys.
And for us, this is Matt and Jen's house, so we want to make sure
we deliver a final product that's gonna blow their socks off.
We have this wall here
that really closes off our kitchen.
We also have very limited counter space.
(Matt) I think knocking out this cupboard would open it up to the living room
and maybe make the kitchen a bit more functional, as well.
Why don't you guys hop inside, start working on your plan,
Ooh, okay--not bad, really.
They've got these gigantic ceilings in the living room,
but everything's white, so you don't feel
the height and space of the room.
It needs some serious Monica love.
And then we have a fireplace, which is value in a home,
but it's aesthetically not pleasing.
Yeah, that was an afterthought, for sure.
No one's excited about terra cotta really, these days.
(Monica) It looks so dated.
All of a sudden, bam! There's this wall,
and then there's this weird room.
(Torche) Their style is definitely confused.
It's a nightmare.
There's a lot of work to be done--I hope we can get it done,
because either we're gonna win together or we're gonna lose together.
I mean, we're working together,
but only one person can win this.
All right, there we go Team Drew, we have claimed our house.
As mentioned, the two houses
in this challenge are mirror images of each other.
This house belongs to Nate and Anna.
They have a 2-year-old and a baby on the way.
We love how it's nice, big, open--however...
We would love if the openness continued.
One of the main problems is the cabinetries.
There's just not a lot of storage space here.
Why don't you guys head inside and take a look around,
Oof...oh, okay-- there's something we gotta change.
Ooh, that's gotta go for sure.
(Brett) It's a big space-- what about this fireplace?
An electric fireplace?
We've gotta seriously consider what we're gonna do there.
Man, this space is kinda dull.
I gotta get on my game and make sure that I can make enough of an impact.
All right, let's go into the kitchen.
The only good thing is that the floors are fairly new, so that's a plus.
Do you have a preference of doing the kitchen or the living room?
I really don't want to take on another kitchen-- I've done it now a couple times.
All right, here we go.
Tails it is.
I'll do the living room.
All right man, that's it.
Brett looked so happy to get that kitchen,
because I know he feels comfortable in there.
(Kennon) I really love the openness.
That is a big money add.
(Brett and David) Hey.
You guys have your house, now what is your plan in the living area?
I mean, I love the architecture of this home.
(David) Yep, I've got a couple of ideas.
That's gotta be a feature wall, whether I do something
with the fireplace, the TV mount.
Okay...one thing I really want to point out is that
the other team always called us the boring team.
They said they were the creative ones, and I will tell you
that Torche, by far, has been the most
creative person with some of her choices.
So please, please, please, let's make sure that
we're really popping this space and adding the most value.
It's crazy--there's so much pressure right now.
I will high five you when we win this challenge, all right?
(Torche) So we're gonna get some new floor in here.
What color were you thinking?
I think something in the warm family, like a beige-y, neutral tone.
I think that sounds great.
Monica and I are working well together--our work style is fast and furious.
We gotta kill this.
(Torche) Hey, Jonathan.
One major question for you-- is taking the wall out
and getting this breakfast area back there
adding more value to the home?
I feel if you open that back up, this room, all of a sudden, feels way bigger...
I think you're gonna have more impact, so...
I'm assuming that you want to do a whole new kitchen.
Jonathan's a little more easy-breezy than Drew,
and I am so excited to work with him.
I appreciate that you put a little something out for me to eat, too.
One, two, three.
[Jonathan laughs] That's one way to do it.
Does Drew get in-- did Drew do some of this kind of work and get dirty?
Ooh, he didn't do exactly this.
Jonathan is in there getting his hands dirty--Jonathan doesn't want to lose to Drew.
(Torche) Oh, yeah!
That's how we do it.
Now, already, does this kitchen not feel a heck of a lot bigger?
It looks good already.
And we haven't done anything yet--I like the energy.
Now that the walls are knocked out,
it feels like a much more open kitchen.
To, like, totally finish it off, I'm gonna put new countertops,
new cabinets, backsplash, and tile floors.
Terra cotta floors is a really dated look,
so I'm gonna bring something really modern in.
Everything is gonna look fresh and new--it's gonna be a bigger impact.
The living room is the first room you see when you come in.
It's gotta have the wow factor.
I think I've got my colors-- I'm good.
So I'm gonna paint this wall to a neutral color palette,
I'm gonna re-stage, and I'm gonna paint the fireplace wall
a dark gray accent color and create a really clean focal point.
Look at how cool this would look.
Since I'm the interior designer, I choose the color palette for the kitchen, as well.
So I'm thinking go in the warmer tones for the color, somewhere in here.
I think that's beautiful.
You're killin' it.
Winning would be so crucial for me because, I mean,
I'm not a spring chicken, I've been doing this for like 14 years,
so for me, personally, I want recognition for the design work that I do.
You're killin' it, and we are killin' them !
Yeah, let's do it.
Yeah, that worked.
I really need to take this space to the next level.
The carpet...hideous, so my plan for the living room
is first to change the flooring, and then I'm gonna do this big feature wall.
I'm gonna move the fireplace and build an entertainment center.
That will draw your eye up and make it a focal point.
All right, let's move on.
So the first thing I gotta hit is that old, dingy carpet and tile.
Since the kitchen already has a beautiful, dark wood laminate,
I figure let's just tie into that and do
the rest of the house with the same material.
It's gonna be a perfect match.
(Brett) This kitchen hasn't been touched since it was built.
It's time to rip this sucker apart and rebuild it.
You got it? Okay.
Between the living room and the kitchen is a wall that is not necessary.
So my plan for the kitchen
is to knock that wall down and just open the space.
I'm gonna put in new cabinets, new countertops,
new appliances and backsplash.
You know, I'm actually happy I'm doing the kitchen,
because this kitchen is really gonna be the money for this house.
Hey, this is where the magic happens.
(Torche) Get it girl.
(Monica) Get it girl! Whoo!
(Jonathan) It's been a few hours since I left, so I want to make sure that
they've got that demo well under control.
(Jonathan) And I want to have tile going down by tonight.
I did not think that you would have the floor up yet.
(Torche) We're strong and fast.
Now, Monica, you picked the colors, or did you guys work together on the colors?
I picked the color.
(Jonathan) Okay, I don't see any color at all--
I see all browns, caramels, and off-whites.
(Monica) What we were going for here is an updated traditional look.
but it's safe.
Safe is beautiful to me, but I haven't worked with Jonathan before,
and I really want to impress him.
Something in your design is gonna have to say, "Wow!"
So now there's doubt going in my mind.
I am starting to second-guess myself.
Tonight, we gotta finish these floors.
We have to change roughly 300 square feet of flooring in my living space alone.
Keep it straight all the way down?
Brett comes over to help, which is great .
Hey, Dave-- shouldn't it go flush?
Yeah, go as flush as you can.
Unfortunately, we might have to compromise on some edges in order to get all this done.
It's Day 2, and we are furniture shopping.
(David) This is it, man.
For the kitchen, I should also be picking the stools.
But you're, like, 7 feet tall.
We'll come back to it.
But also, in the back of my mind, I'm thinking this is a competition.
Only one of us is gonna win.
(Monica) As far as our lining, baby girl.
Last night, Jonathan expressed concern about my color choices.
So I've actually changed the granite countertop and the backsplash.
(Torche) Much more modern.
It's actually got a lot of gray undertone in it, too--love it.
As the kitchen is coming together,
I realize that with the wall removed, we lost storage.
So we're gonna have some problems with enough upper cabinets.
Hey, guys! We have some cabinets...
So this is just the background color,
and then we're gonna come in with splashes of gray
and blue and possibly even a little coral.
I thought you would like that.
But...you are severely short
of uppers, upper cabinet storage.
(Drew) Yeah, you have one and a half.
Are there more uppers coming?
(Torche) Uh-oh...maybe I should've done something different.
Maybe I didn't make the right design choice.
This could really hurt us-- it could really hurt me.
I have to take over this fireplace now.
No, no, no.
I came here from the beginning to win.
I'm not giving it until I know what's going on.
I want to win.
It's gotta be perfect.
So far, I'm feeling very confident about my choices.
(Brett) Very nice upgrade.
I also want to add some personal touches to it.
People with kids should always have a chalkboard handy.
You can make lists of things you run out of.
What drives me is my family.
I want, desperately, to be a father,
and my wife and I have been trying to have kids for a few years.
So I need to win this $50,000 to add a nursery onto my house.
It's gettin' there.
Let's get started here.
(David) So I'm starting the fireplace.
Give me six pieces at 10 and 1/2.
I've gotta build the structure,
put some sheet rock to it,
to finalize my mantel piece.
Here we go!
I don't know if I have enough time, but I have to really bring it.
Watch your back.
I'm definitely doing everything I do out here with my wife and daughter in mind.
I have a beautiful 6-year-old daughter at home,
and I know if she was next to me, she'd be saying,
"Daddy, go, go, go, don't quit."
So I'll do whatever I have to do to pull this off.
All right, get the bottom in first...what do you think?
I think...it fits-- money, man.
Brett and I work very well together.
Because if we don't win the challenge, we go home.
It's Day 3 of the challenge, and I have the whole backsplash to install.
I don't think I've ever sweat more in my life.
This is my last chance to prove myself, that I can lay some nice tile.
These little suckers fall off.
At this point, everything is on the line...it has to be perfect.
Well, think they're gonna be done? Maybe they're sitting in there drinking Mai Tais.
(Jonathan) I'm hopin' they're not done.
Ooh, it looks like a construction site.
(Drew) David, what's happening over here?
Yeah, man, I've got some great progress going.
I...this troubles me a little bit.
I love to hear that.
David's living room feature is awesome, and, you know,
it's an electric fireplace, sometimes can look kind of cheap,
but this is gonna look phenomenal.
Keep working, there's still a lot to do.
Absolutely, thank you.
You know, I'm nervous about this living room.
Of the two spaces, I know that the kitchen makes the greatest impact.
Look, before I came out here, I made a promise to my family
that I would do everything in my power to come away with a win.
I can't let them down.
That should do it.
This is the final day of the competition.
I think this is the day that I really set myself apart.
(Monica) I've got it!
After I finish my backsplash, I have to get back to work on that fireplace.
The fireplace is really, really important,
so I need to own it.
It's looking good, this is nice.
But then I look over from the kitchen, and I see
this dated, inadequate fireplace,
and it's a sore thumb.
One thing I want to tell you guys, and I don't want to say this
to scare you, but...
David has done this very contemporary fireplace feature
that I honestly think, reconfiguring
the living room, has made it feel so much bigger.
That is not what I wanted to hear...I feel crushed.
Were you still planning on doing something with the fireplace in the living room?
I wanted to build a really contemporary box around it.
It's a wood, it's very clean, very simple.
(Jonathan) Monica has a plan, but it's...it's kind of underwhelming.
We are gonna have to step it up.
If there is something, anything, that can be done to that fireplace,
then I think we can win this thing again.
I have to take over this fireplace...I have to take over it...now.
I gotta take over the fireplace--can you let me have the fireplace right now?
No, no, no...we can discuss it.
Then I'm not giving it until I know what's going on.
But you've gotta keep doing this.
I'm, like, ahead right now.
I'm good with working together on it, but I can't just give it up.
I'm not gonna let her take over the fireplace.
There's a lot at stake for me.
I came here from the beginning to win.
I like to win, I love to win.
Let's take a quick look at the fireplace.
I want to win.
So, at Team Drew's house, it is an entire wall feature
that they were doing with an offset fireplace.
So basically, I was gonna come in and add a wood frame
that's about 6 inches wide around the whole thing.
What Monica's doing is nice, but we have to have more than nice.
We have to have...wow.
(Jonathan) And what's your idea?
All right, so, I just got it.
I'm gonna bring out this wall a little bit as much as I can,
leave cutaways with the wall exposed behind to have nooks here.
is what we should do.
It doesn't feel good when Jonathan likes her idea better.
Then we'll frame out this in a modern way.
But based on the sketch that she drew, it does look more dynamic,
and I know if we're gonna win this challenge,
we've gotta stay strong as a team.
So let's do it, let's go for it.
I think this is a fabulous idea, I actually do love it.
Doesn't it feel so much better to agree on everything?
Now we've got Drew all psyched out, they think they're winning this thing.
Guys, we are gonna kill them, and then we are gonna celebrate
in front of our fireplace.
This fireplace is gonna be a lot.
Measure twice, cut once.
Building, cutting, sanding, painting.
I'm gonna work extremely hard, and I'm not afraid of a fight,
and I like a fight.
I mean, I served my country, I went to war.
Now it's time for me to shine on up to the front.
The torch needs to be lit.
I'm gonna have to make sure that everything I do is fabulous at this point.
So I've gotta finish this backsplash.
We a team, we a team-- it's looking good.
You talkin' about my glutes, or are you talkin' about the wall?
I think we can win with this.
Uh-huh, I like it.
Put it over there-- we've got one more.
We're down to the last hours.
The granite has been installed, it's a little brighter
and more vibrant than I expected,
so I'm second-guessing my choices.
(David) This is it, there's no tomorrow.
We have to make every decision count.
Rest it up here, and grab that gun.
So I decide, I'm gonna take this bold.
Oh, yeah, that worked.
Bold colors on the panels, and that mantel...
I'm gonna put the boldest color to date
that anyone has used in this competition.
Hey, how's it goin'?
Good, this is great, I mean, it looks really nice.
I did go darker.
I took the risk and went with the darker to match the kitchen cabinets.
You know what, it looks nice, it ties together nicely.
I'm really nervous that the fireplace and panel look really sharp.
This is tough for me, because David's my best bet...
and my biggest competitor.
I think Brett is starting to feel a little challenged by David
in the sense that he now sees David's creative side coming out,
so it's a very close competition.
But there's still a lot to do here.
I gotta make it perfect!
So it's time to position the fireplace.
Let's do this show.
(Torche) I hope this fits.
Let's do this! Ahhh!
Monica, we've got a fireplace now.
(Monica) Girl power!
(Torche) Girl power!
I love the smell of cleaning products.
That means we're gettin' there.
This is it, we're moments away from the end of the competition.
This house just has to look incredible.
I believe in there girls, I believe it's gonna happen.
One hour to go, guys-- we gotta speed it up a little bit!
Those final moments are very intense.
Drapery, colors, my staging... everything has to be on point.
(Torche) Superstar! Hey.
[singsong voice] It's gorgeous!
Fifteen minutes, guys!
I've gotta put up my last pieces.
For better or for worse, it's all gonna be over soon.
Now, are we even?
(Jonathan) Everything has to be complete-- caulk faster!
I can't caulk any faster!
(Brett) Oh, my God.
Oh, my God!
Come on over here, guys.
This is really the first time that I'm proud of my work--
really, really proud of it.
I'm so impressed, I can't even tell you guys.
If I was a crier like Jonathan, I'd be crying right now.
I feel like you guys may have just
successfully kicked their butt.
(Torche) This is the hardest thing I've ever fought for.
It's not the money.
It's about making myself proud, it's about not failing myself.
We're talking about all the makeover drama on the blog
Oh, it's going down.
This has been quite the challenge, and quite
the competition overall, but I'm proud of my team.
I'm not an easy person to impress,
and all four of these guys have really impressed me.
Here we go, this is who it is.
Thanks for coming back.
(Drew) For the finale, we've brought back all
of the judges from our previous challenges--
Mike Aubrey, a real estate powerhouse,
Kennon Earl, one of LA's top real estate experts,
and Hilary Farr and David Visentin
from the hit show "Love It or List It".
This is Team Drew's house-- my team has made a heck of a difference.
I have to say, really incredible.
This looks spectacular and so much different than it looked before.
(Drew) If you remember before, this room was very bland and poorly laid out,
and that fireplace was against the back wall.
Now, the room as a lot of color and definition.
David actually moved the fireplace and built a feature wall around it.
I'm not in love with the fact that it's an electric fireplace,
but this looks completely different
than it did before, and that is a big money add.
I think the staging is excellent.
Everything is tying in without actually being matchy matchy.
The floors help, too.
Taking out the carpet and putting in this, you have got this clean look.
(Jonathan) Now, not to play devil's advocate, but I will say
you can see along the edge here of the paneling
and down at the bottom, it's a little bit rough.
I actually have to come back in with some of my guys to fix that.
They're gonna make sure that that looks great for the homeowners.
Why don't we actually shift around here into the kitchen space?
This is another impressive piece in my opinion.
(Kennon) This is really beautiful.
(Drew) If you remember before, this kitchen felt really small.
The cabinets were practically falling apart.
Now, all the cabinets and appliances are brand new,
and the space is much more functional.
(Hilary) Really nice job.
When I walk in now it actually looks like a bigger house.
(David V.) It looks like they added square footage to this house.
It's not as child friendly as you would want
in terms of having a second place to sit.
You can't actually give your kids their breakfast at this bar,
But they have the feature on the side wall that they did for the chalkboard.
(Hilary) How adorable is that? You walk in here as a buyer with children,
I just...I love it, I feel warm and fuzzy.
That's what I like, that's what I do.
I don't want you guys to get too mushy,
because we have an entire other house to take a look at.
Why don't we take a look at that?
Prepare for amazement.
From what it was to what it is, is...amazing.
(Jonathan) Before, this living room was basically an empty shell.
The walls were dated, it had an old fireplace at the back.
Now, there's some real definition in here,
and the fireplace is a real focal point in the room.
I really love the openness.
This room feels warm, but it feels big, as well.
The sense of light here is literally,
you know, night and day.
And that's wonderful.
The fireplace feature, compared to what you saw
in my team's house, what do you think of this here?
(Kennon) It really makes the space more modern.
The fact that there's an actual gas fireplace in here, as compared to
the electric insert that's over in your place...
I see more value with this.
But the problem with this room is everybody's actually
(Kennon) Sitting over here, exactly--
this just doesn't make sense.
I do like what they've done in the living room space,
but I love what they've done with this kitchen.
(Jonathan) If you remember, there used to be a wall of cabinets separating
the kitchen from the living room,
and another wall at the back closing off the dining room.
So my team knocked down those walls to open up the space.
The flow here now is really incredible, I mean, this whole main floor.
(Kennon) Well, it's definitely defined the dining space--
much, much smarter than before.
But you really should have more than one
upper cabinet in your kitchen design.
That's gonna be a difficult thing, because people are gonna need
that storage, and I think that's a tough thing in this house.
Families don't wanna put their dishes down below.
They want their glasses and their plates up high.
I get that it's missing a little bit of cabinetry,
but when you talk about real money adds,
I see a lot of 'em in here, I mean the tile floors are phenomenal in here,
the fact that there is an island makes it a usable space...
I mean, I gotta be honest with you, I like 'em.
I feel like we've given you a lot
and so maybe this is a good chance for us
to step away, and you guys can come to a decision.
And obviously, it comes down to the hard numbers.
Who added more value?
I know, that's why--
I'm proud of these guys, they know what they're doing,
and I could pick any one of those four people and say,
"There's somebody I'd like to work with in the future," so...
Well, that's what the biggest challenge is gonna be.
Whichever team wins, figuring out who's gonna be the actual champion.
You didn't point out the obvious--I didn't pick you
I know, whatever.
The big question is,
which team added more value
with the renovations they did?
Here's a renovation comparison brought to you by autotrader.com.
On "Brother vs. Brother", there are many ways to increase property value.
Installing a contemporary wall mount can spruce up a tired fireplace,
and designing a feature wall around a fireplace can redefine a living area.
A side-by-side comparison shows how both can really
increase the value of a home,
but which adds more to the bottom line?

I'm excited to see your house.
Tonight, for the first time, we're getting a chance
to walk through and see the other team's work.
(Monica) Gosh, this looks amazing!
I don't know if I'm proud or if I'm really nervous.
I'm nervous, it looks a lot better than I thought.
This is beautiful.
Monica! Enough already.
This house is beautiful, but it's not worth as much as ours.
I feel good, we got this.
Okay, let's go.
Not knowing what the other team did is
the biggest source of anxiety for me.
I did my best-- I just don't know what they did.
Welcome to our home, boys.
Oh, no, it looks amazing.
The wall color's great-- this is really pretty.
Now, did you do something to the fireplace?
(Torche) When we heard that you boys did such a wonderful job over there,
I had to build that.
That is a dramatic fireplace.
It looks really, really nice.
Hey, guys, how we doing?
Well, the big day--it's been a really long competition.
Jonathan and I are both proud of all of you guys,
but it's up to the judges as to how much value
is added, and who added more,
and speaking of, here are the judges now.
As this is the final challenge, we wanted to bring back all of the judges.
We have Mike Aubrey, Kennon Earl, David Visentin, and Hilary Farr.
Now, this is Team Jonathan's house,
so let's start talking about that.
One of the things that I feel is exceptional is this living room.
There is so much light in here, the colors that you've chosen...
it is a really, really impressive room to walk into.
That fireplace... you walk right in the house,
and bam! a buyer's gonna see it,
and he's gonna love it.
But what I'm a little disappointed in
is that the couch is pointing directly at a wall.
(Kennon) It doesn't make sense.
Okay, let's talk about the kitchen.
The finishes that you did in the kitchen...
Taking down not only the back wall but also the wall that's right there...
it opened up the sight lines completely,
and I think it was a huge value add.
(Hilary) On the down side,
I think that you sacrificed
opportunities for storage.
Why don't we get down to the nitty gritty--
how did Team Jonathan do?
The original value of this house before any renovations
After breaking down the numbers, we have a new value.
And that new value is...
...and ninety thousand dollars.
(Drew) Wow, incredible.
It truly, truly is incredible.
In three days, $60,000
Who can do that?
Great job, $20k a day.
I can almost feel that check touching my fingers, you know?
Okay, so now, Team Drew's house.
(Hilary) I was completely astounded with what you did.
It was a good plan to move that fireplace-- that made all the difference.
But it would've been nice if it had been
at least an updated electric fireplace.
looking at these two houses and comparing and contrasting them,
these rooms are exactly the same size,
but that one looks a lot bigger to me.
The work that you did in there made it feel far more spacious.
One of the things that I think
we were all very impressed with was the floor.
I cannot believe that you found the same material
and you matched it-- that was incredibly impressive.
What do you guys think of the kitchen?
The first thing that I noticed was wow, great,
they put cabinets along that wall,
but there's no shoe molding at the bottom.
Yeah, I mean, somebody would walk in and wonder,
"Is the quality that's poor here somewhere else, hidden, in this house?"
(David V.) I just thought it was an incredible kitchen/ dining room combination.
I love that you've got tons of storage.
was the simple addition of the chalkboard.
So the question is Brett and David, how much value
was added to the house with the renovation you guys did?
My eye is on the prize-- I'm trying desperately to keep it in,
but I am a nervous wreck.
That house, like this one, was originally valued at $330,000.
After the changes that you made,
if we were to list that house today, we would list it at...
So obviously, the big question is,
which team added more value
with the renovations they did?
Team Jonathan, you added $60,000 to our house
for a total market value of $390,000.
Team Drew, your house, like this one,
was originally valued at $330,000.
After the changes that you made,
if we were to list that house today,
we would list it at...
(David V.) But that was close.
(Hilary) About $75,000 of added value.
That's $15,000 more than Team Jonathan.
(Jonathan) Really great job, guys.
(Hilary) Okay, thank you.
I'm shocked, but I just have to accept it.
I am on the verge of tears almost here because you guys have been amazing to work with.
Torche, you wanted this so bad.
My pride's hurt inside-- I thought we could definitely win this.
Hey, come here...
I kinda bonded with this gal,
'cause I worked with her the most.
(Drew) You guys did an amazing job,
but I think it's time for Team Jonathan to head out.
We gave it everything... everything...
and still lost.
It's never easy seeing such amazing people be sent home.
No, those are my girls.
(Drew) But now, we have to choose one champion.
For me to win would just be validating what I've put
all of my life's passion and work into.
Brett, the biggest thing that I appreciate is
you supported everyone on your team, and you had no problem stepping up.
David, I really have noticed through this competition, you've come out of your shell.
You have really risen to every challenge.
I've put everything on the line.
I want this very bad.
Both of you are very strong,
but for this competition, we've decided
that the first champion of "Brother vs. Brother"
and the winner of $50,000
(Brett) Good job.
Oh, my God--I competed
on a national stage with the best of the best,
and I came out on top.
You are the home improvement expert.
And you deserve to be champion of "Brother vs. Brother".
I can't wait to tell my wife and my daughter that I won.
Brett, I love the fact I got the chance to work with you,
and I really do feel that I'm gonna see you again soon.
This has been an amazing experience,
and I'm really thrilled I did this.
Going home is heartbreaking.
It's... [clears throat]
Last man standing.
I feel like we just need to go out and celebrate.
It is over, you have done this, let's go crack some champagne.
(Drew) Celebrating on me.
This is absolutely amazing.
Honey--Rachel, Emily, it's 'cause of you guys.
I did it! [sniffles]
Please watch my $3,000 rug, thank you very much.
A toast to the champion of "Brother vs. Brother".
And the deserving champion.
When you set your mind to something and it actually comes to fruition,
you feel like you can do anything.
Yeah, yeah! You deserve it.
(both) Oh, my God!
(Jen) My God, it doesn't even look like our house.
Ohh! This is not our house!
(Nate) Holy smokes!
Oh, my God, the kitchen, holy cow!
(Matt) We got some more counter space I guess, huh?
Oh, I can actually cook!
Oh, look, I love this--chalk!
Tatum will love that.
I can't believe this, this is not the same house.
Oh, my gosh.
Not really, this is fantastic.
Hey, mom, how are you?
I think we're safe.
♪ La la la la ♪

Now I'm ready to beat Team Drew.
Why won't you look at me?
