A Done Deal: Wealthy Barber David Chilton is the Newest Judge on Dragons' Den

David Chilton is the author of Canada's all-time best-selling book, The Wealthy Barber, and he's about to become a co-star on Dragons' Den, one of the country’s most successful television shows. CBC has announced that Chilton will join fellow Lavin speakers Kevin O’Leary and Arlene Dickinson as a judge, starring in the hit show’s seventh season. "David Chilton embodies Canadian entrepreneurial success,” the CBC said, “and through his terrific books he has shared his financial advice for the benefit of everyone.”

In addition to being a successful author, the humble and humorous Chilton brings a wealth of business experience to the Den—from his pre-Barber days as a financial expert, to helping the Podleski sisters launch their bestselling Looneyspoons series of cookbooks. The skills that have made Chilton one of Canada's most-requested speakers—his unique combination of financial knowledge, plain speak, and utter relatability—are sure to carry over into his new role as a television mainstay.
