Season two of Undercover Billionaire starts on Discovery Jan. 6. Season one saw entrepreneur Glenn Stearns stripped of his wealth and contacts and dropped in a city he’d never before visited to see if he could build a million-dollar company. 

This season, three successful entrepreneurs are betting $1 million that they can go undercover in three different cities, start their own business with $100 and top the million-dollar mark in 90 days. Grant Cardone is a motivational speaker, real estate investor, sales trainer and author. Monique Idlett-Mosley is a technology guru. Elaine Culotti is a real estate developer, interior designer and builder. 

Undercover Billionaire: Comeback City premieres after the first episode of Undercover Billionaire. It shows Stearns addressing ailing businesses in Erie, Pennsylvania.
