Brad Pitt Teamed Up with The Property Brothers for an Emotional Home Reno Project on Celebrity IOU

  • The Property Brothers’ new show, Celebrity IOU, aired on HGTV on Monday, April 13.
  • The premiere episode features Hollywood superstar Brad Pitt as he enlists The Property Brothers’ help to renovate his longtime makeup artist’s home.

    The day has finally come: On Monday, April 13, Drew and Jonathan Scott’s new HGTV show, Celebrity IOU, aired its first episode. As if another feel-good home show wasn’t enough to make our hearts swoon, the Property Brothers stars tackled their latest endeavor with none other than Brad Pitt by their side.

    As a refresher, Celebrity IOU follows Hollywood A-listers as they surprise their friends, family members, and mentors with exciting (and well-deserved!) home renovations. Best of all, the celebrities don’t only fund the project, they help the brothers see the process through from beginning to end.

    Brad joined Drew and Jonathan to transform a space belonging to his longtime makeup artist and friend, Jean Black. The team changed Jean’s under-utilized garage into an absolutely gorgeous guest house. The renovation took place in Santa Monica, California, and, as expected, Brad made us even more heart-eyed over the entire process—especially when he took the demo into his own hands. (The world’s wish to see Brad Pitt knock down a wall came true, after all.)

    Drew and Jonathan even added a few special touches of their own, and showed Brad before the final reveal to Jean. For one of the most personal additions, the brothers commissioned a custom portrait of Jean’s late parents, which instantly caused Brad to choke up. “That’s gonna get her,” he told them in the episode. “This will mean so much to her. I couldn’t have done this well and certainly not in this amount of time.”

    But it wasn’t just the sentimental portrait that made our jaws drop at the transformation. The fully-renovated garage included plenty of storage, a foldaway bed, fresh white decor, and (fittingly) a makeup vanity.

    After watching the season premiere, one thing’s for sure: We can’t wait to see what’s in store when Michael Bublé, Viola Davis, Melissa McCarthy, Jeremy Renner, and Rebel Wilson join forces with the Property Brothers.

    Celebrity IOU airs Mondays at 9 p.m. EST on HGTV.
