"I've really enjoyed being a part of the show and having an impact on these small businesses," said Fertitta. "Starting a business is always a gamble, and I had to find a way to commemorate this experience at my casinos. Now players can win big against the Billion Dollar Buyer at any of the Golden Nugget properties."
CNBC's "Billion Dollar Buyer" returns for its second season on Tuesday, November 22 at 10PM ET / 9PM CT with 12 new episodes. The primetime show introduces promising small businesses across the country to one of America's most successful businessmen. Fertitta personally scouts the country for the most innovative new products America's entrepreneurs have to offer – everything from food and drink for his restaurants and casinos, to furniture and lighting for his hotels.
In each hour-long episode, Fertitta will spend time with two small businesses, sample their goods, get to know their owners, and assess their compatibility with Landry's, Inc. He'll point out flaws in their product and operations, share his expertise, and push for improvements. In the end, he'll decide whether to place a transformative purchase order with one of the companies, both, or neither.
