Alert the celeb fanatics: HGTV’s “Celebrity IOU” is back and better than ever. Hosted by Jonathan and Drew Scott of “The Property Brothers” fame, each episode of the show involves a well-known celebrity renovating a home of a person who’s made a difference in their life. And in the latest episode, the Scott brothers don’t waste any time in bringing out the big names with Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian, and Kendall Jenner.

Kris tapped the Property Brothers because she wanted to help Lisa, her best friend of 40 years, get through a difficult time. Lisa had lost her husband and her mother in the same year, and so in an attempt to move forward, she purchased a new home in Hidden Hills, California. While Lisa worked on the interior of the home, the outside was in a disheveled state — with no signs of changing anytime soon. So the Kardashian-Jenner family and the Scott brothers came in to give Lisa’s yard a makeover that would make it a place to unwind, relax, and hangout with family and friends.

While the backyard pool wasn’t in terrible shape, Drew had the idea of moving it further back to make it even bigger the second time around — and to make space for an integrated spa (more on that later). In place of the pool’s old location, the Scott brothers built out a luxurious lounging area, complete with a freestanding electric fireplace and new furniture. As Kim put it, it’s the perfect place for Lisa and Kris to gossip.

The Scott brothers also brought in a large wooden dining table to host grand dinner parties, complete with white chairs that complemented the neutral palette. And if it looks much more green in the “after” photo, Jonathan and Drew planted olive trees everywhere to add sophistication and elegance.

Now, back to pool talk. Separated from the lounging-dining area by a set of stairs, the lower-level pool space is the epitome of tranquility. The Property Brothers took an almost completely bare space and built out the rectangular pool bordered with marble, with a corner hot tub that created a spa-like feature. Add in the lounging chairs, and voila: a place that Lisa and guests will never want to leave.

But there are many more transformations where that came from! To see the full reveal, which includes a cooking station and the entire front yard, check out the episode on HGTV or Discovery+.

Celebrity IOU airs Mondays at 9/8 central on HGTV.
