“It was a lot of work — it was lot more work than I actually thought going into it,” he confessed. “It’s physically taxing, but also just mentally and emotionally exhausting. But it was definitely a challenge that I’m glad I took on. No regrets at all.”
Drew — who won season 2 of the series in 2006 — said he thought his brother “did great.”
“I just tried to be encouraging,” said Drew, 41. “He improved every week, which is what you want to see. I mean, you have people that come in there and they’re great week 1, and they’re still great week 9, 10, whatever. But you could definitely see improvement with [Nick].”
“He’d see my scores and I’d get the text — ‘How you doing?’ ” said Nick with a laugh.
“He was like, ‘What’d you do when you got 6s?’ ” recalled Drew. “I was like, ‘I don’t know — I never got 6s!’ ”
“I think I got some of yours — they were 9s, they just had them upside down,” joked Nick. “They were confused!
