Marcus Lemonis

Marcus Lemonis first met his entrepreneur wife, Bobbi Raffel Lemonis, at an event where she pitched him her business idea. Marcus, the CEO of Camping World and America’s largest RV and outdoor retailer, met his current wife Bobbi Raffel Lemonis for the first time in 2016.

Drops Of Tears On His Wedding Day

Marcus Lemonis (47) and Bobbi Raffel Lemonis (47) married in front of family and friends at the Hotel Bel-Air in February 2018.

During an interview with Page Six Magazine about his marriage, the businessman revealed that he cried on his wedding day. Despite the fact that the wedding was simple, he described it as “a really special” occasion for him and his close friends.

The wedding, which lasted a weekend and included numerous outfit changes and parties, was attended by both the priest and the cantor (since the bride and groom are not of the same faith).

His wife is older than him

Bobbi, who celebrates her birthday on September 21, leads a very private life, so her exact age is unknown. Her husband Marcus’ age, on the other hand, is public knowledge: he was born on November 16, 1973, and will be 50 years old in 2023.

Despite his wife’s ‘undisclosed’ age, it is clear from their photos that he is significantly younger than her. Despite their apparent age difference, the couple appears unconcerned as they spend happy times together.

Ila Lemonis was his wife

Bobbi is not the first woman to whom the Lebanese-born business executive has been married. Previously, he married businesswoman Ila Lemonis (birth name Ila Penfold). Marcus married his first wife in 2003, according to Netline. The couple had an on-again, off-again relationship until they divorced in 2017.

Aside from that, Marcus dated Bethenny Frankel of The Real Housewives of New York City in 2015. On the other hand, Bobbi has had her fair share of previous relationships. It is possible to say this because she has biological children and grandchildren (she has no kids with Marcus.) She frequently updates her social media with pictures of her daughter and 43-year-old son.
