10 Things You Didn’t Know About HGTV Star Scott McGillivray
8. 5 Properties by the Time He Was 23
While in college, Scott McGillivray stumbled across a money making gold mine when he realized he could make a living for himself, buying properties and renting them out to students or any other kind of tenant in need. He bought his first house when he was only 21-years-old and rented it out to his friends to make money and pay off the mortgage instead of paying rent to someone else. He liked it so much that the next year he bought another house, and then another, and so and so forth. He continuously got more and more involved, eventually becoming a licensed contractor and learning renovations. “I feel in love with real estate, renovations, and became a licensed contractor when I was 26,” he said in an interview with Hoss Magazine and by the age 23 he owned 5 properties.
7. He’s Very Active
In November 2014, Scott McGillivray was chosen as People’s “Sexy Man of the Week” and during his interview he revealed he feels the most sexy when he’s in his tool belt, but he’s also really physically active which helps in the whole looks department! He was extremely active as a kid. He grew up playing hockey and it seems that lifestyle transferred over in to adulthood. “I love a big steak or seafood dinner, but the next day I’m running outside for miles. While of course listening to music. I have to have the music on,” he said. In addition to running, he also likes boating, swimming, working out at the gym and surfing.
