Jonathan and Drew (born Andrew) Scott are HGTV’s two biggest stars after building up their Property Brothers‘ empire. The Canadian-born twins have made a career out of sharing their life on-screen, but they are also really good at keeping their private life, well, private! But in their recently released second-memoir It Takes Two: Our Story the two of them divulge all the details of their private life, including divorce, bankruptcy, childhood dreams, friendships, and most importantly, how they got to where they are today. Check out our list of the 12 most surprising revelations from It Takes Two: Our Story!

12. Young Entreprenuers

The Scott brother’s have been extremely determined and driven their entire lives, which allowed them to start making money from a very young age. They started their first business (JAM Enterprises) at the age of 7 by selling decorative hangers. They turned a profit by charging $1.75 for hangers that cost .50 cents to make. At first they sold them door-to-door, but after striking a deal with a woman who owned a chain of Americana gift shops in Japan, their business began to grow. They even employed their classmates to help keep up with the demand! Not surprisingly, their interest fizzled after a while and they were on to the next venture.

11. Clowns For Hire

Their second job was being clowns for hire. They attended clown school and began booking parties through Parks and Rec, earning $50 to $100 an hour. By the time they were 10-years-old they’d saved several thousand dollars! Drew’s clown name was Curly the Clown after he began sporting a bald cap with a tiny hat, while Jonathan wore a rainbow wig and called himself Dimples. They continued to work as clowns for hire until high school when they moved on once again to another business venture.
