Real reality TV!
10 May 2017 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

The Profit is a reality TV show where businessman Marcus Lemonis works with failing businesses in attempts to save them from going belly up by offering the business heads his knowledge and a $2 million dollar fund.

Much of the reality shows on TV are non-fiction (of course), but filmed and written with the ultimate goal of game-playing, Hollywood star power and entertainment value - shows like "Survivor," "The Biggest Loser" and "Hell's Kitchen." However, shows like "The Profit" involve more real, serious situations in which the action and choices made by the show's people will effect their everyday lives, and have the ability to effect the world as well.

This show is all about business management, making choices, financial skills and transforming work in successes or failure. There is no game-play, nor overzealous drama, real work and diligence and personal decisions - all with some entertainment and suspense mixed in. Great stuff here!
