Plot Synopsis

Ambitious entrepreneurs from across the United States to come down to West Texas and pitch their business ideas to self-made multimillionaires Rooster McConaughey (the older brother of Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey) and Butch Gilliam and their close friend and confidante Gil Prather. Rooster and Butch carved their fortunes from a harsh and unforgiving land. For the past several years, they've chosen to pass on that success by investing in promising entrepreneurs -- but only on their turf and their terms. Now, these entrepreneurs get a once-in-a-lifetime chance to secure funding...but what they don't know is that clever products and beautiful balance sheets only get them so far with these investors, because Rooster and Butch won't make a deal until they've peered into their hearts and souls, taking the true measure of their character and their companies. The entrepreneurs and businesses featured (in alphabetical order) include: Jeremy Adams, Prestige Food Trucks (Orlando, FL); JB Adkins, Hyte App (Northridge, CA); Reuben Canada, Jin+Ja (New York, NY); Christy Chang & Amy Pepper, No Touch Pen (Potomac, MD); Shennice Cleckley, My Dessert Bar (Columbia, SC); Mike Droessler, Invisible Undershirt (Cincinnati OH); Chase Fisher & Blake Jensen, Blenders Eyewear (La Jolla, CA); Jen Friel, What's Up App (Tavernier, FL); Jenny Fulton, Miss Jenny's Pickles (Kernersville, NC); Adam Garfield, SpeedETab (Boston, MA); KC Kelly, iQue Repair (Taylorsville, UT); Rob O'Reilly, RORGuitars (Ireland); Jack Scalfani, The Best BBQ Sauce (Hendersonville, TN); Desiree Shank, Future College Fund (Castle Rock, CO); Louisa Wright, My Back Sleeper Pillow (Castle Rock, CO); and AJ Zakarian, RoboCup (Las Vegas, NV). WEST TEXAS INVESTORS CLUB returned with new episodes on Tuesday, June 7, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT on CNBC. In "The Last Pitcher," the first new episode of the summer, a young entrepreneur pitches Butch and Roosters 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.
On Wednesday, August 3, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT, CNBC premiered the season finale of WEST TEXAS INVESTORS CLUB. In the season ender, "Natural Born Chillers," two frat boys from Florida have engineered a way to chill beer faster. Butch and Rooster put the gadget to the ultimate test under harsh desert conditions. Later, a free-spirited Californian tries to convert meat-eating Texans to her plant-based burgers.
