The contestants try to convince any one of the sharks to invest money in their idea. When more than one of the sharks decide they want a piece of the action, a bidding war can erupt, driving up the price of the investment.

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.
Budding entrepreneurs get three minutes to pitch their business ideas to five multimillionaires who are willing to invest their own cash to kick-start the businesses in the original "Shark Tank." After each pitch, the Dragons have the opportunity to ask questions about the venture. The entrepreneurs don't always have to answer, but of course what they choose not to address could very well affect the outcome. The pitch is over when each of the Dragons has declared,"I'm out." Evan Davis hosts.
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. Although some of his changes could be considered radical, the companies should be willing to go along with them because in the last 10 years, Lemonis has successfully turned around more than 100 companies. To quote the not-so-humble Lemonis, "When I have skin in the game, my way is the only way your business will survive."
Since launching "The Profit" in 2013, serial entrepreneur Marcus Lemonis has expanded his portfolio of businesses significantly, having invested in a number of companies on the series. Now, he's searching for a partner who can help him manage his rapidly expanding empire. To find that person, Marcus is sticking with the same format that has led to his business expansion: a reality show. Although thousands of hopefuls from across America applied for the position, only 10 people have been invited to Chicago to take part in the final interview process, which plays out over the course of five episodes of "The Partner." At stake for the contestant who ultimately emerges victorious is the aforementioned role with Lemonis' company, which includes a $500,000 contract and an equity stake in the enterprise. Lemonis says he is looking for someone with the same drive and passion as the entrepreneurs with whom he has partnered.
As if giving Cleveland its first major sports championship in more than 50 years with the 2016 NBA title wasn't enough, basketball superstar LeBron James is looking to give even more to Northeast Ohio, where he grew up and still resides. James and business partner Maverick Carter are executive producers of this show that aims to give Cleveland-area entrepreneurs investments to help open new brick-and-mortar stores to try to boost the area's economy. Four local business leaders mentor the owners of eight small businesses and test their business acumen before deciding to invest in four of the companies and support them as they open storefronts in a rebuilding neighborhood. B. Bonin Bough, an executive with a large snack-food company and member of the Advertising Hall of Fame, has been hand-selected by James and Carter to serve as host of the series, which Carter calls "more than a TV show," saying "it's a transformational series that can lift up all of Northeast Ohio."
"Adventure Capitalists" can succinctly be described as "Shark Tank" for outdoor enthusiasts. In each hourlong episode, hopeful entrepreneurs pitch the investors -- the titular "adventure capitalists" -- their ideas for new outdoor products. The investors then head out into the world, going on expeditions through a variety of challenging terrains, to experience the products firsthand to see if they live up to the entrepreneurs' claims. If the tests are successful, the potential backers can choose to make a large investment in each product. The investors who have the option to change the entrepreneurs' lives include former NFL player and TV host Dhani Jones, former Olympic skier Jeremy Bloom and American gymnast and Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson East.
As chairman and CEO of hospitality company Landry's, Inc., Tilman Fertitta is in charge of a number of nationally known dining and entertainment brands, including Morton's The Steakhouse and Golden Nugget Hotels & Casinos. With these and other businesses under his purview, he has tremendous buying power with an annual budget of $2 billion, and he's looking to use it to help American small businesses highlighted in this series. In each episode, he spends time with two small businesses, sampling their products and getting to know their owners. After sharing his expertise and pushing for improvements to the firms' products, Fertitta decides whether to place a significant purchase order with one of the companies, both or neither. When Fertitta chooses a company with which to place an order, it can transform not only the business but also its owners' lives. Failure to secure an order from Fertitta, on the other hand, could be the end of the road.
