The new show Undercover Billionaire follows entrepreneur Glenn Stearns as he literally tries to build a new business from scratch. Stearns, who built up his consumer loan company to be one of America’s biggest, starts the show with $100 in his pocket and 90 days to turn it into $1 million. Some have questioned whether he’s starting with an unfair advantage, since — as the name implies — he’s already a billionaire and doesn’t have a lot to lose. But Stearns told us that doesn’t matter much when starting a brand-new business, and he feels like he’s putting his reputation on the line as he tries to rise to the challenge.
