Bill Rancic - Host
Bill Rancic burst onto the national scene when he was hired by Donald Trump as the winner of the first season of NBC's breakthrough program "The Apprentice." He can currently be seen in the fifth season of Style's hit series "Giuliana & Bill."
Currently, Bill is speaking to businesses and organizations around the world on motivational and business topics, developing real estate in Chicago, and producing and appearing in several television programs.
Most recently, Bill began hosting "America Now" in partnership with ITV and Raycom Media. He makes regular appearances on numerous daytime broadcast and cable television programs such as "Today," "The View," "Rachael Ray" and various CNBC programs to talk to viewers about business and entrepreneurship. He also regularly appears in many major national, regional and local print outlets throughout the country.
A published author of a New York Times best-selling book, Bill wrote "You're Hired: How to Succeed in Business and Life." This book chronicles Bill's successful life, experience and proven advice. He continued to make a name for himself as an author by writing "Beyond the Lemonade Stand" to help educate and motivate young people worldwide about the value of money and how to leverage skills, talents and abilities at an early age. All proceeds from the sale of this book have gone to charity. Bill has also co-authored "I Do, Now What?" with his wife Giuliana Rancic where they share secrets to everlasting love.
After graduating cum laude from Loyola University, Bill went on to become a successful entrepreneur when he founded Cigars Around the World, a monthly online subscription-based retailer that became a multi-million dollar enterprise. Today he is one of the most sought after motivational speakers on the subject of entrepreneurship and business, sharing his entertaining lessons that vary from a pancake business he started with his grandmother at age 10 to his current multi-million dollar real estate enterprise in Chicago.
Highly engaged in charitable activities, Bill is about to complete his second trip to Haiti, building homes for victims of the earthquake. He is also an active board member for the Mercy Home for Boys and Girls.
