Before they were one of reality television’s hottest stars, Drew and Jonathan Scott were just two kids living in Vancouver, Canada. Their father was an immigrant from Scottland and he made sure that the boys were raised in a creative household.
Born For Stardom
At a very early age, Jonathan already showed great potential for performing. According to relatives, he had personality and presence at the age of seven. His father saw this spark and put both of his kids to work while still young children. Jon and Drew teamed up as child clowns. While they loved performing, they weren’t big fans of the makeup.
While many won’t probably beieve this, one of John’s earliest loves was for magic. At one point he was seriously considering a career as a magician. He dawned the name Jonathan Silver and took his magic very seriously. The young John stated that if he couldn’t make it in the world of magic, then he’d do something else in the world of entertainment.
Prep Course To His Passion
John and Drew’s father wanted nothing but the best for his children. With that, he’d enroll them in multiple courses and try to spark their interest. One of these prep course touched John in a very personal way. He and his father drove to Alberta, Canada and helped build a dream home for his parents. As the house was completed, John himself felt truly complete. He knew what he’d be doing with his life.
Double The Mind Power
Often growing tired of living in each other’s shadows, twins often go their separate ways in college. Drew and Jonathan decided to combine their strengths and interest in real estate and become a sensation. Hand in hand, the two went to the University of Calgary and approached degrees in business management. They also did something that few would expect from a pair of college freshmen.
While most of us go to college and party hard, the two brothers kept their eyes on the bigger picture. They put down and down payment and bought a property right across from their school. With this house, they sublet it, tore things down and repaired things. After a year of experimenting with the house, they sold it and earned $50,000. At the time, they two couldn’t see the fame that was ahead of them.
Over the next decade, Jonathan and Drew built a powerful business. Their ambitions pushed them to open up their own real estate business called Scott Real Estate. Their business covered everything between Canada and Las Vegas. Being in Vegas took Jonathan back to a time when he longed to perform. The two brother wondered if they could ever realize their childhood dreams of being actors and performers.
All their years in business took them full circle into the world of performing. Television producers heard about these two handsome brothers in the real estate business and decided to give them an opportunity. What resulted was a show called Property Brothers. It was a show that featured these two brothers helping people find properties and make them into the homes of their dreams. They even take into account their clients budgets.
Property Brothers was perfect for the brothers. They were able to practice their love for real estate and embrace their passion for performing. Given their charms, they immediately became household names in the world of reality television. They garnered millions of fans in a very short time. Television was only the beginning for these brothers. They went on to have success in radio, books, acting and even music. They also had a number of spin-off shows.
On the show, it came up that Jonathan Scott was still single. Many fans wondered how it could be. He was a charming, handsome and very wealthy man. The fact that he was a bachelor stood out a lot. Many wondered why he wasn’t married. If a lady were to marry him, she definitely become an instant celebrity.
Love Comes To Town
For Jonathan, his love all started at a charity event in the year 2015. Jonathan paid little attention to the event because he was very distracted by a blonde girl across the room. Some can say that it was love at first sight. He especially loved that he spotted this young woman at a charity event. Much like him, this young lady also cared about animal and human rights.
The Search Is On
Unfortunately, she got away that night and Jonathan was left in a world of wonder. Before he would look her up, he wanted to know a little bit more about the woman. He learned that her name was Jacinta Kuznetsov. He had no direct way of contacting her so he began following her on Instagram and wondering when to make a move.
Think Things Over
Jonathan wasn’t exactly the type of guy to approach a pretty girl by writing her on social media, especially one with as much class as her. He sat at home going crazy and going over all the different ways that he could contact her. Sadly, it seemed like the option he had was via Instagram. Months went by and all the while he loomed over her Instagram account and hoped for a way. Then he finally decided to message her.
Jacinta said yes and the two were on their way. He immediately started planning for their first date and he was absolutely bursting with excitement. Sadly, it didn’t go according to plan. As a method of knowing her better before the date, Jonathan asked her a ton of question and his straightforward manner proved to tire her out. She that he asked the worse questions.
Jacinta Has Second Thoughts
Seemed like he had messed up big time, but he wasn’t ready to give up yet. It was very apparent that she just wasn’t very into him. He cut their date short and quickly asked if he could have a “do-over” for the next night. Things weren’t looking very good Jonathan at that moment. It didn’t matter how much money he had, he needed to think quick.
Second Time Around
Jonathan was absolutely shocked when Jacinta accepted his offer for a second date. Before she’d give him that second date, he’d have to promise to not ask so many probing questions. Most girls would have taken that first date as an immediate reason to never see this person again, but Jacinta was open to a second chance. The second date ended up going absolutely great.
Love Has Come To Town
That second date led to a third and that third one led to many more. He decided to take things very slow. They’d meet and just enjoy the company of one another. Before Jonathan knew it, he was in the relationship of his dreams. Between his amazing enterprise with his brother and his relationship with Jacinta, Jonathan’s life looked pretty perfect.
Jonathan and Jacinta made one heck of a hot power couple. When they decided to break to the news to the public, one can imagine how many female fans were heartbroken. Once the news it was out, it was out. The young couple did not hesitate to take social media by storm. John’s fan base fully embraced the beautiful couple. They were ecstatic for his happiness.
Jacinta Hits The Silver Screen
Once the relationship was in full bloom, Jonathan often had Jacinta on Property Brothers. The fans immediately took to her and had been waiting for the moment when she’d appear. Drew had been dating Linda Phan for some years now and he would also have her on the show. The two girlfriends made quite the impact on the screen.
Going On A Getaway
In December of 2016, the young couple took things a step further and went on their first romantic holiday together. The two of them escaped the Canadian cold and took off for Maui. It was the perfect location for him to ask her to marry him. Fans followed closely to Instagram with the hopes of getting some big news about the couple.
To the dismay of many fans, there was no ring on Jacinta’s finger and no plan of a wedding in site. Many of their followers were puzzled by the lack of a ring. What could have been more romantic? During an interview with People, Jonathan confirmed that he in fact was planning to marry Jacinta and he wanted to have children with her.
Taking It Back
Looks like Jonathan made a mistake by speaking for both of them. A few months after his People, Jonathan went on record and took back his remarks. He replaced his talks for marriage and instead said that the two of them were taking things slow. He also said that they had been dating for actually a very short amount of time. This sudden talk had a bunch of fans wondering if they were missing something. Suddenly rumors were spreading and people were talking. What was really going on in this relationship.
Things took a turn for the hopeful. Drew got engaged to Linda Phan and she moved in with the two brothers. Shocking the world, Jacinta also moved in with the brothers. It left for a rather interesting situation. Two brothers both living with their girlfriends in the same house. The fans were very hopeful that their relationship was going forward.
Calling It Quits
In April of 2018, Jonathan shattered the web when he posted a beautiful picture of him and Jacinta playing with baby elephants. It wasn’t this amazing picture that caused the shock, it was the caption that came with it. The caption said that the couple was calling it quits. He left a long statement that stated nothing negative about his ex-girlfriend. Next, the fans await Jacinta’s response.
Jacinta just reposted what Jonathan had written. Fans were amazing that no cheap shots were taken at each other. They spoke with nothing but affection and love. Rarely, do people split with nothing but positives to say about each other. Jonathan assured the masses that the couple would remain good friends.
His First Wife
Turns out that Jonathan had a little secret that had been long concealed from the mass of his fans. It was something he didn’t like to dwell on. It would bring up too many feelings of pain and anguish. However, Jacinta knew about this part of his life. Jonathan had been married before. John and this mystery woman had dated for five years and were married for two. Things ended very badly for the two.
Moving From Drew
Some may argue that the relationship took a strain when Jacinta and John moved away from the house they shared with Drew and Linda. For most, this would seem like a major step in the right direction for a relationship. John suffered though. Drew had been his partner for life and being away from him so long probably took a toll on him.
Toll On Jacinta
Being with a top-notch celebrity no doubt will bring on some major issues. She had to give up a lot of her private life when she decided to be with a celebrity. Jacinta had to give up her job and settle for a production position on her boyfriend’s show. Jacinta was losing her whole identity to her boyfriend and taking on her life while John took on zero of her life.
Emotions Running High
Just one month after going through a rough breakup, Jonathan had to attend his brother’s wedding. He, of course, had the role of best man and during his best man’s speech things took an emotional high and he swayed off the topic of his brother and began getting wrapped up in his own emotions. He even went on to say that he “had not been so fortunate in love” and burst into tears.
While the break up was extremely shocking, there is an even more surprising revelation. Jacinta and John are still very good friends. In fact, she still works on John’s production team at Scott Brothers Entertainment. These two are truly great examples of how great a break up can be.
