Matthew McConaughey’s brother, Mike “Rooster” McConaughey, is starring in the new reality TV show, West Texas Investors Club on CNBC. He earned the role as he made his first million at age 30 working in the oil pipe business in Texas. Sure Rooster lost it all one year later, but it “taught him everything he needed to know to become the multi-millionaire he is today.”
Rooster is now the proud sole owner of DGM Supply which buys and sells used pipe. He also invests in technology, consumer products, ranching, real estate, water, corn and, of course, oil. His business partner, Wayne “Butch” Gilliam, will co-host West Texas Investors Club, which airs Tuesdays at 10pm on CNBC.
