The Partner (CNBC) – Premieres 7th March
Reality competition where after investing in numerous businesses of the course of The Profit, Marcus Lemonis is in need of a partner to help him look after the projects.
Luckily Marcus has narrowed down a few thousand applicants to the final ten, where after a 6 weeks the winner ends up getting a three year contract and a 1% equity stake in Lemonis’ portfolio.
Like The Apprentice, Lemonis sets the applicants a challenge then reviews their performances before getting them all together and eliminating the worst using the handy catchphrase “You will not be going forward”.
Even though the prize for the winner is more prestigious, it a lightweight version of The Apprentice where nothing of note really happens.
