Jonathan Scott and Zooey Deschanel have been going strong since late last summer. These two lovebirds are also quarantining together, and since they haven’t gotten sick of each other yet, it must be true love. Both Scott and Deschanel have had very successful careers — but who has the higher net worth?

Jonathan Scott and his brother, Drew, are best known as the ‘Property Brothers’

Jonathan and Drew Scott are Canadian brothers who made massive names for themselves when their HGTV show, Property Brothers, first aired back in 2011. Drew is the real estate expert who tries to convince buyers to see the potential in unkempt homes, while Jonathan is the contractor who brings Drew’s vision to life.

The brothers are identical twins, and their television show has led them to many other endeavors, including a recently-launched magazine. The brothers have hosted a slew of spinoff shows through the years, including Property Brothers: Buying and Selling and Property Brothers at Home. These days, they’ve gone from HGTV hosts to household names.

Jonathan Scott met actress Zooey Deschanel on the set of ‘Carpool Karaoke’

Zooey Deschanel is an American actress who has made appearances in many movies through the years, such as “Elf” and “Yes Man” in the early 2000s. She began starring in the series New Girl on Fox in 2011, and the show ran until 2018. Deschanel and her ex-husband, Jacob Pechenik, divorced in 2019, right around the time Deschanel started dating Scott.

Scott and Deschanel met while filming a segment of James Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke” in August 2019. Scott and his brother joined the segment alongside Deschanel and her sister, actress Emily Deschanel, and the four had a great time together; Scott and Deschanel hit it off and started dating soon after.

Scott is worth $100 million while Deschanel is worth about $30 million

Scott’s design endeavors have helped him amass a net worth of around $100 million — a lot of money for someone who primarily stars on HGTV. He and his brother are worth a combined $200 million; to compare, other HGTV stars aren’t worth nearly as much. Chip and Joanna Gaines are worth about $18 million, and Christina Anstead (formerly Christina El Moussa) is worth about $12 million.

Deschanel’s impressive acting resume has earned her an estimated $30 million net worth. A large part of her income came from New Girl; at the show’s height, Deschanel was reportedly making about $125,000 per episode; before that, it was $95,000, per her divorce papers.

The two have the sweetest relationship

Scott and Deschanel seem to get along very well. They always post photos together on Instagram, and it suggests that they have a lighthearted, fun relationship. Scott posted photos of the two quarantining together on Instagram, and they’ve been passing the time by playing plenty of games. “We both play to win!” he said, teasing a competitive spirit between them.

Scott’s brother recently married his longtime girlfriend, Linda Phan. It’s nice to see both brothers in such exciting and happy relationships.
