MacGyver is an American action-adventure television series. Tony became fan of the secret agent Angus MacGyver (hero of the show) at a young age.
Tony was impressed by how MacGyver escape from difficult situations even if he didn’t have exactly the ideal set of tools or resources that he needed in order to get out of it. Somehow he would figure out a creative way and escape from it. For example, he’d take duct tape and a pencil and a paper clip and create a sailboat out of it and he’d be the hero at the end of the hour.
Tony says, being an entrepreneur, he gets to play MacGyver every day with business.
