Meeting The Property Brothers

Watching The Property Brothers is something we LOVE to do in our house! My son Boo and I watch the episodes and talk about how we would remodel the houses if we had the chance. So when we started seeing signs all over town announcing Drew and Jonathan would be in town my son was super excited! For weeks it was all he talked about and as the day finally arrived he was positively thrilled!

 

Boo took a great amount of time coloring pictures to give The Brothers… He worked so hard and was so proud to take them his works of art.

My son clutched his artwork tightly as we made our way through the long line of others hoping to get a moment with the infamous Brothers. I asked Boo several times over our long wait if he just wanted to leave– loud noises and deep crowds of people usually bother him but he insisted he wanted to stay… He was just too excited at the thought of meeting these two!

As we inched our way closer and closer to the front of the line I began to worry. When meeting celebrities you never really know how they will react or treat people. As I stood in line with my special needs child clutching my hand I said a silent prayer that they would be kind to Boo… When we were about 30 people away we could see how quickly people were being shuffled up to meet them. There were SO many people there and it had already gotten fairly late yet the Brothers continued to stay so everyone who was in line could meet them.  A handler rushed by us telling us all to have our cameras out and ready to shoot and to simply hand it to the person near the front… We watched as people were ushered in to meet them in a whirlwind, quickly and efficient. I reached out to the handler as he went back by and quietly mentioned to him that my special needs son had some drawings for the guys. He went immediately up to the front then walked just as quickly back to us and took Boo by the hand saying, “Now your a VIP!” This was perhaps just a simple thing for him to offer us but truly was a highlight of my sons life!

We were ushered right up to the Brothers and both Drew and Jonathan took the time to admire his drawings. Boo beamed with happiness as Jonathan admired his drawing and told him he had great design talent! Both of them took the time to stop and give Boo attention while he tried to talk to them and were so patient. My son has speech apraxia as well as autism and it can be very hard for others to understand him yet they were so sweet and patient with him and made him feel like a rock star!

Meeting these two was such a highlight for my son and I and it was truly a blessing for me to see that they both have such amazing hearts.

I’d love to hear from my readers– Have you ever met a celebrity or if not who would you love to meet one day?

  7. I have only met Dolly Pardon up close and personal. She was very kind, but then, I don’t remember a whole lot as this was back in 1972 and I was 9. How awesome of the two of them to take the time out for your son. I had 2 children with disabilities, although, as an adult one manages fine by himself. The other would freak out to see one of his TV stars or wrestlers.

    1. Hi Gladys! How wonderful you had the experience of meeting Dolly!! 🙂

  30. Esme Sy

    I feel star-strucked for you guys! I don’t know why this reminds me of the “brotherhood” in the show Suits but I feel lost not knowing The Property Brothers, they have this charisma that I can’t explain.

    1. Thanks so much Esme! 🙂

  31. Angela

    1. Thanks so much Angela! 🙂

  32. I’ve never heard of these guys before, I don’t think we have them over here lol. But how exciting that you got to meet them, as you’re a big fan x

    1. Hi Becca! It’s such a fun show! Maybe you can catch it on Hulu? 🙂

  33. What an awesome experience, I am so glad they turned out to be kind towards Boo – your right, we never really know who we’re meeting when it comes to celebrities and a wrong experience can damage the whole illusion. I’ve met Fearne Cotton and Holly Willoboughy who are famous in England. They were really sweet!

    1. Aww what a fabulous experience for you! 🙂

    I have watched this show a couple times and I really like it. They are so much fun!

I have never met a celebrity that I truly wanted to meet and if that ever happens I could totally imagine how I would pray they be nice to me and so I could only understand your concerns about Boo meeting such famous individuals! But I am so glad God heard your prayer and they were so good to him <3 You can't blame the celebrities as they have to handle too many people at once but they were really kind to give Boo a little special attention So glad xoxo

    1. Hi Toyin! That is so respectful you give them their space 🙂 This event was set up as a fan meet and greet though 🙂

  64. I’m so ecstatic that your son got the chance to meet the property brothers. It warms my heart to know that they are kind and respectful to their fans. Thanks for sharing your experience. As for myself, I hope to meet Gordon Ramsey. He’s my favorite celebrity chef.

  68. I’m not aware about the property brothers, but it feels good to see them, coz they made your son so happy with their warm hearts. When we meet big celebrities who have so much of warmth, it gives a lot pleasure.

    1. Thank you Jhilmil! 🙂

  69. That was incredibly nice of the Brothers. Am sure Boo must have come back home smiling all the way. I haven’t met any celebrity, but I am sure we will too be standing in queues once my toddler is old enough to want to go meet them.

    1. Hi Sejal! He was so happy and smiling all day long! 🙂
