Without fail, the CEOs featured on "Undercover Boss" lavish their employees with extravagant gifts and promotions. But there's been a good deal of skepticism about how genuine these bosses actually are about helping the rank-and-file. This past Friday, the CBS reality series devoted the episode to celebrating "Epic Bosses," and Stephen Cloobeck, the founder and chairman of Diamond Resorts, arguably stole the show.
Cloobeck -- the only boss to undergo the " 'Undercover' journey" twice -- has contributed $2 million to his workers, $1 million of which came from his own pocket. He's paid for a worker's life-saving cancer treatments, as seen in the video above. And he's also created a special crisis fund for all his 5,600 employees. (He announced this during his second appearance earlier this season.) "I realized I couldn't just give to a couple of members [of my resorts]," he said on Friday's episode. "'Being on 'Undercover Boss' changed my life forever. ... I learned it's important to take care of as many people as possible."
