The Filthy Rich Guide
Documentary, Entertainment, Reality
The "one percent" has become a synonym for America's very wealthy. The upper echelon of that already-elite group -- per this show -- is the "filthy rich." Each half hour spotlights how the latter spend: lavish parties, expensive electronics, outrageous mansions, private islands. Billionaires featured include entrepreneur Charles Shaker, who had a $500,000 bar tab in Monte Carlo; business magnate Mukesh Ambani, whose house -- valued at $1 billion -- may be the world's largest; and Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison, who bought a Hawaiian island for nearly $500 million. Though extreme to most folks, these people have the money and aren't afraid to spend it.
