 "West Texas Investors Club"
Season Premiere Tuesday, June 7 at 10 PM ET/PT on CNBC
          CNBC’s “West Texas Investors Club” returns with bigger deals, higher stakes and a whole lot more business. Set deep in the heart of Texas, the 10 original hour-long episodes feature self-made multimillionaires? Rooster McConaughey and Butch Gilliam who have chosen to pass on their success by investing in promising entrepreneurs – but only on their turf and their terms.

          Along with their close friend and confidante Gil Prather, Rooster and Butch invite a new batch of ambitious entrepreneurs from across the country to come down to Midland, Texas and make their case. These folks know that they’re getting a once-in-a-lifetime chance to secure an investment - but what they don’t know, is that clever products and beautiful balance sheets will only get you so far with these down-home investors. Rooster and Butch won’t make a deal until they’ve peered into your heart and soul – and taken the true measure of your character.


          In the Tuesday, June 7th episode, a young entrepreneur pitches Butch and Rooster an electronic beer tap that promises to reduce keg waste. The beer-loving investors have high hopes, but soon find that this youngster may not be everything he says he is. Later, two moms from Utah show off their practical zip-up bedding.
