Who are the Hosts in Rooster and Butch?
Rooster McConaughey and Wayne Gilliam, also known as Butch, are self-made millionaires. They have been successfully running businesses in cattle ranching, oil pipe supplies and some other ventures in Texas. Rooster McConaughey is the older brother of Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey. He started working with his father in the oil business when he was 12 years old and became a millionaire at 30 years of age.
Wayne Gilliam started working in a machine shop as a sweeper, and over the years rose to become the president of the company. Today, he is one of the most trusted salesmen of pipes in the Permian Basin. He is also a board member of a company called West Texas Ltd., which is an investment firm in which he started with Rooster as his partner.
Rooster and Butch take the help of their friend, Gil Prather and invite many budding entrepreneurs from across the United States to West Texas and give them the opportunity to run their own business by helping them with capital investment.
What is Rooster and Butch About?
‘Rooster and Butch’ is a reality challenge show, that follows this self-made millionaire duo, as they look for companies to invest in. Originally, they were part of another similar show titled, ‘West Texas Investors Club’. However, they were not happy with its formal setting and wanted a more flexible and Texas-style show.
The closest show that can be compared with ‘Rooster and Butch’ is the globally successful ‘Shark Tank‘. However, unlike ‘Shark Tank’, ‘Rooster and Butch’ focus on the character and passion of the entrepreneur and not data and strategy. Their primary intention is to help people realize their dreams.
The duo believes that they intend to level the playing field since the rich class of the society has it easy, when it comes to starting a business and scaling up quickly. The working class does not get the right launchpad in spite of a great idea and this is where they can help. According to them, a lack of funds should be the last reason to give up on your dream if it is worth it.
Each episode of the show features an entrepreneur or a group who gets a chance to present their ideas in front of Rooster and Butch. The duo, unlike on ‘Shark Tank’, is dressed in the classic Texan way with their cowboy hats. If they find an idea interesting, they move on to find more about the people behind the idea by asking them some challenging questions. People and their drive towards their idea are of utmost importance for both Rooster and Butch. They rigorously test the products with maximum scrutiny often through practical implementation.
‘Rooster and Butch’ is an extremely entertaining show due to this relaxed setting in spite of its business-oriented theme. Rooster and Butch are both phenomenally accomplished businessmen who manage to provide the best advice and observations. If you are an entrepreneur, this show is a treat for you as there is so much you can learn from it.
Besides its entertainment factor, the show works towards offering people a chance in life to realize their dreams. Many young entrepreneurs have successfully scaled their ideas under the mentorship of Rooster and Butch. The show helps people feel valued. The world of business is brutal and very often intimidating for young businessmen.
The show tries to create a platform from which they can start. It successfully manages to replace the brutality with valuable advice and a chance to shoot for the stars. Participants are in for a real test as Rooster and Butch are not concerned with how the startup has faired so far or about the balance sheets of the business. They look for the skill and character that a true entrepreneur requires, before making their decision on the winner.
