Marcus Lemonis

Camping World Inc. and Good Sam Enterprises LLC Chairman and CEO Marcus Lemonis will appear on ABC’s “Secret Millionaire” Aug. 5 at 8 p.m. (Eastern).

According to a press release, Lemonis returns to his home town of Miami, Fla., to live and volunteer among its poorest residents, learning first-hand about their daily struggles and how he can use his success and leadership to help them break the cycle of tough times.

“Secret Millionaire reflects perfectly the Good Sam philosophy of giving back where it’s needed,” said Lemonis. “Good Sam was founded back in 1966, loosely based on the story of the Good Samaritan who went out of his way to help a fellow traveler. This show provided me personally a great opportunity to help others in my hometown community.”

The reality show follows one of America’s self-made millionaires as they leave the comforts of their home behind and spend a week in one of the country’s poorest areas. Their true identities remain concealed until the end of the week’s journey as they get to know real people who lead real lives in these desolate situations. Each show peaks as the millionaires award hundreds of thousands of dollars of their own money to the unsung heroes of that community.

    It was touching, unbelievable for me in these times watching somebody like Mr. Lemonis having the life he has and being so, so humble, kind, an amazing person.
    It was not only the economic help he gave to those organizations and the people on them, but theway he connected with each one of them!
    The organizations he found: he couldn’t choose better, anti-bullying, foster kids that deserve that much of love and a push to make them suceed, and the young ladies getting an opportunity to become whatthey deserve with the help of thatwonderful lady. Neat stuff…..I can’t stop talking! Love this program! Best deision I made when i changed channels!

    I’m not sure where this will end up, but here goes…
    I watch secret millionaire every week and i’m always deeply moved by the stories.
    This week with Marcus Lemonis was my personal favorite. I was touched by Marcus’s own story and I felt he was very genuine and kind. I just recently got some information on places to volunteer in my neighborhood and I’m looking forward to seeing what I can do to help.
    Congratulations on your successes and thank you for paying it forward and for being an inspiration to me.

    Dear Marcus,

    We grew up together in Miami. I was so sorry to hear that you did not feel you had a good childhood, as I remember having a great childhood and you were part of those fun memories in our neighborhood! We used to have so much fun at your house with the Desmonds, cooking Jiffy Popcorn and playing in the back yard!

    We both turned out fine! We are both blessed to be able to have our own happy lives and help as many people around us as possible.

    You are certainly on the right path. I hope one day, you will be able to remember some happy memories of our childhood.

    All the best to you now and in the future.

    Jennifer Perkins
