Matthew McConaughey’s brother Mike “Rooster” McConaughey and his business partner Wayne “Butch” Gilliam are the stars of CNBC’s new Shark Tank-inspired show, West Texas Investors Club. Rooster earned his place at the deal-making table by earning millions in the oil pipe business in Texas. It’s also not Rooster’s first time in front of the camera.
He appeared on the reality series Black Gold a few times as himself. On West Texas Investors Club, Rooster really chews up the scene with props including a ubiquitous cigar in his mouth and a can of beer in his hand. If you think Kevin “Mr. Wonderful” O’Leary is over-the-top on Shark Tank, wait until you meet Rooster on West Texas Investors Club. The show airs Tuesdays at 10pm on CNBC.
