About the series
Hosted by businessman, inventor and philanthropist Marcus Lemonis, The Profit is an American reality television series that follows Lemonis as he offers small business owners investment capital and advice in return for a part in the company. The series first aired in July of 2013 and received great reviews and critical acclaim. The Profit Season 4 premiered on CNBC on August 23, 2016.
Marcus Lemonis is a very successful businessman, who has turned many struggling businesses into flourishing industry leaders. In 2007, he was named Newsmaker of the Year by RV Business Magazine for his role in the recreational vehicle industry. In 2008, he was named Entrepreneur of the Year by Ernst & Young. In 2012 he began aiding small businesses on the verge of bankruptcy in return for an ownership stake – a hobby that has secured him a role in his new show The Profit. Surprisingly, he does not get paid by the network, nor does he get any help with his investments in the companies he aids. His work with CNBC is completely his initiative and the only incentive he has is return on investments.
