West Texas Investors Club Episode Guide Season 1The West Texas Investor's Club is a Business Reality Show exclusively seen on CNBC that's similar to the Shark Tank showing self-made multi-millionaires investing in entrepreneurs small businesses. Unlike the Shark Tank having around an hour presenting your rehearsed elevator pitch to the Sharks, the West Texas Investors Club takes several days before a final investment's finalized. Is the West Texas Investors Club fake and a parody about the Shark Tank? Or is the Show the real deal with entrepreneurs running real businesses? The best way answering that question is visiting the list of products seen on the Show.

---------The Founding Members of the West Texas Investors Club is Rooster McConaughy, (Mathew McConaughy's older brother) who loves an ice-cold beer no matter what time of day, and Dwayne "Butch" Gilliam, who bought a patented pipe threading technology for $200,000.00 and sold the patent two years later for a reported $120 million. The singer/ songwriter Gil Prantner, famous for writing "The Man From The Rio Grand" among dozens of others, is the third and probably the most important character in the West Texas Investors Club. If you want to make a deal on the Show, you'll need Gil's approval first.
In The West Texas Investor's Club Season 1 (all episode's and products listed in order above), Rooster McConaughy and Butch Gilliam invested almost $2 million in over half of the businesses seen in the episodes from Season 1. The fact CNBC brought back the Investors Club for a second season with ten brand new episode's means this "Duck Dynasty vs. Shark Tank" business reality show is attracting a growing audience.
Would you rather be pitching your product standing in a hot room filled with Shark Investors grilling you or sitting on a cow can drinking a beer and discussing the future of your business? In many ways, pitching to the West Texas Investors Club's about the exact opposite as pitching your business/ product on the Shark Tank Show. But (and this is important) the results for successful products seen on both T.V. Shows is extremely high as evidenced in the Season One episode guide list of all contestants products.
If you seen the West Texas Investors once or maybe even twice on CNBC, well, you might need to watch it a few more times to figure out what's really going on. The Shark Tank Show has nothing to worry about as far as competition in the ratings, but the West Texas Investors Club audience is growing as more entrepreneurs learn the Texas way of doing business. Isn't Mark Cuban from Texas? Hmm, now that would make for interesting episode for either Show. Having Rooster McConaughy and Butch Gilliam featured as Shark Tank Guest Investors sounds like an rather interesting idea to me.
