Television Personalities |
Twin brothers, Jonathan and Drew Scott have been reaping the rewards of an impressive work ethic and an entrepreneurial spirit from the tender age of seven—the age they started their first business. At age seventeen they purchased their first fixer-upper, completed renovations, and sold it one year later for a $50,000 profit. Today, “The Property Brothers” have built a highly successful entertainment empire—Scott Brothers Entertainment. Together, they follow their mutual passion for film, entertainment, and home renovation, and are always on the look-out for new exciting opportunities. Their popular TV shows garner HGTV’s highest ratings, and are syndicated to networks worldwide.
Buddy 'Cake Boss' Valastro
Owner of Carlo's Bakery and Star of Cake Boss |
For New York Times best-selling author Buddy Valastro, mixing eggs, sugar, butter and flour means a lot more than “making a cake.” As a fourth generation baker, it’s a constant source of pleasure, pride and creativity. Creating amazing cakes connects Buddy with the memory of his father Buddy Sr. and his extended Italian family history. His talent and passion for the family business, Carlo’s Bakery, has earned the straight-talking cake expert the moniker, and TLC TV show, Cake Boss. For this best-selling author, cake expert, and successful businessman, family is a top priority. When Buddy was 11, he began working at the family bakery alongside his father. “My dad was my best friend and idol, anything to spend more time with him was important.” In the precious years they worked together as a father and son team, his dad passed on his wealth of baking knowledge and instilled in him a cast iron business sense and a drive for success. Now a father himself to a daughter and three sons, Buddy continues to pass on Valastro family traditions.
