"Secret Lives of the Super Rich" perhaps can be summed up as: " `Cribs,' featuring people who probably have never used the word to describe their homes." The series opens the gates to some of the world's most-luxurious mansions to give viewers VIP access to a world that is usually open only to the wealthiest of the wealthy. Featured abodes include the largest home in America, a $150 million megamansion and exclusive properties in the nation's richest town.
Some people are born into a rich family and inherit millions of dollars. Other people aren't wealthy by birth and need to work hard to earn their own millions. That latter group can be divided further by job, into groups of white-collar millionaires and blue-collar millionaires. It's those blue-collar workers who have worked their way up the money ladder who are the focus of his half-hour series. The docuseries profiles men and women who have made their fortunes through a can-do mindset and hard work, often having to roll up their sleeves -- metaphorically, at least, if not literally. The show also highlights how they spend their hard-earned money when having fun off the clock.
Some inventions make lots of money for the people who create them, but others are less successful and eventually given up on by their inventors. In this series, some of those unsuccessful products are given a second chance to gain popularity. Engineers scour the country in search of items they think can make it big. They then locate the inventors, giving them resources and advice that can help take the products to the next level. After building, testing and perfecting the products, the inventors are given the opportunity to pitch their improved products with the ultimate goal of getting them on the market -- giving the inventors a second chance at making millions from their ideas.
Self-made millionaires Mike "Rooster" McConaughey -- brother of Oscar-winning actor Matthew -- and Wayne "Butch" Gilliam made their fortunes deep in the heart of Texas. Now, they're looking to share their wealth with other entrepreneurs by investing in their companies. Along with close friend Gil Prather, the investors invite ambitious entrepreneurs from across America to come to West Texas to make their case to secure funding for their ventures. Think of it as "Shark Tank" with cowboy hats instead of tailored suits. What the hopefuls don't realize, though, is that a good product and a positive balance sheet aren't enough to get an investment from McConaughey and Gilliam; the guys only make a deal after getting a true measure of an entrepreneur's character.
Being the chairman and CEO of multibillion-dollar corporation Camping World takes up a lot of Marcus Lemonis' time. But when he's not running the company, he's searching for struggling businesses in need of cash. Lemonis tries to help turn each company around by offering cash for a piece of the business and a percentage of the profits. Now he's bringing that process to TV with this series, in which he puts millions of dollars of his own money on the line. Once he's working with the company, he does whatever is necessary to save the business and make a profit for himself -- even if it means firing the president.

Now, he's searching for a partner who can help him manage his rapidly expanding empire.
