Two New Jersey Brothers Compete in ‘Christmas Light Fight’ Tonight on TV!
The Kloos brothers will be the youngest competitors on the seasonal ABC special.
Bill and Ryan Kloos of East Brunswick took off work and college to decorate their house for the TV competition special!
But this isn't the first time the Kloos house has been decorated for the holidays. Bill started way back when he was just 10 years-old. He used just a few strands of light that first Christmas season. It's grown quite large over the last several years. So big that the town has cut off traffic through their cul-de-sac. You have to walk up to the property weeknights between 7pm and 10pm.
The Kloos brothers will be pitted against a family in Arizona with an emoji themed holiday light display. The winner gets $50,000!
But it's not about the money, if fact the Kloos have donated over $35,000 for various charities over the last 8 years.
According to NJ.com,
This year, after seeing his photo on Facebook, the brothers are dedicating the donation box on the west side of the driveway to Trent Powers, a 2-year-old boy in Helmetta who has Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
"We do it because we like to bring the community together," Bill Kloos says of the show. And the brothers have always felt the love, even when everything wasn't so awash in Christmas cheer. In 2014, after their donation box was stolen, local business pitched in $1,000 to $5,000 each to make up for the loss.
The Kloos episode of 'The Great Christmas Light Fight' airs tonight beginning at 8pm on ABC.
