Many people would consider the celebrity spouse — Bobbi Raffel — as one of the luckiest ladies alive. Until her marriage to the multimillionaire business tycoon and reality star Marcus Lemonis in early 2018, she was hardly any more than the next-door struggling businesswoman out there. But, today, we have written about her because she has captured the attention of the media due to her husband’s fame and fortune.
Bobbi became famous by marriage, but it seems she prefers being a private person still. Thus, she maintains a low profile even after tying the knot with her multi-millionaire reality star husband. She is not the type that would tell you about herself so easily either.
Yet, Marcus Lemonis’ fans can’t stop asking to know the woman that makes their hero tick. Despite her privacy policies, we have unravelled some interesting facts about Bobbi Raffel and here they are:
Meet Bobbi Raffel Before She Married The Profit Star — Marcus Lemonis
She almost just popped into the scene. So, who was she and what was she up to prior to this? Our findings reveal that she was born as Roberta Raffel to American parents whose names are not known to us yet. While we do not also know her exact date of birth, some quarters have it that she is about 20 years older than her husband. If this is true, then, we can place her birth year around the early 1950s since her husband was born in the early 1970s. Bobbi Raffel, however, celebrates her birthday on September 21 every year.
Because Raffel has inherently lived a humble life, it is not a surprise that just little is known about her. Facts about her early life, parents, siblings, education, and many more have remained a mystery to the media. In this regard, the only romantic relationship that we can link to her so far is with her husband Marcus Lemonis.
In terms of career, there are strong indications that Bobbi Raffel plied her trade in the fashion industry. While we can’t tell exactly in what aspect of the fashion industry she pursued her business concerns, there are reports that she sold her fashion business to her husband sometime before their wedding held.
Who Made The First Move?

According to the love story of the duo, it was Bobbi who first approached Marcus asking to sell her fashion business to him.

She actually succeeded in her marketing venture which resulted in the fashion subsidiary of the Marcus Lemonis LLC known as ML Fashion Group and which has a chain of retail stores across the United States.
The Important Dates They Celebrate As A Couple
