Mark Cuban is swimming away from Shark Tank
November 27th, 2023 under Shark Tank. [ Comments: none ]

Mark Cuban made a huge announcement on the All The Smoke podcast: the entrepreneur is leaving Shark Tank at the end of next season. The series he has been on since the second one.

“It’s time. But I love it because it sends the message the American dream is alive and well,” he said. “I feel like in doing Shark Tank all these years. We’ve trained multiple generations of entrepreneurs. That if somebody can come from Iowa or Sacramento or wherever, and show up on the carpet of Shark Tank and show their business and get a deal that is going to inspire generations of kids. That’s what happens, right? So now we’ve got people coming on saying I watched you when I was 10 years old, 15 years ago, I’m like, fuck. But we’re helping them, right? I’ve invested in, I don’t know how many hundreds of companies. On a cash basis, I’m down a little bit, but on mark-to-market, meaning the companies are still in operation, I’m way up.”

So, if you want a deal with him next season, he told Matt Barnes & Stak what he is looking for. Don’t try too hard to sell your product. Don’t have a long backstory. And finally, come up with something he wishes he had thought of before you pitched it to him. If you can do all of that, you might have him as a partner.

And who doesn’t want to partner with him? Because of that, I wonder if Shark Tank can go on without him because he is the heart of the series. Plus, the other five aren’t as charismatic as him or a reason to tune in.

Therefore, if ABC is going to replace him, they better get someone as likable as him because Daymond John and Robert Herjavec are not enough of a draw.

Tell me if you are going to miss him in the comments.

Shark Tank scares up Blumhouse’s Jason Blum
September 12th, 2023 under Blumhouse, Shark Tank. [ Comments: none ]

Oh, the horror! Shark Tank is getting into some scary business this season because they asked Jason Blum to be a guest Shark, according to Deadline.

Blum is the CEO of Blumhouse, whose studio has brought us movies like M3GAN, the last three Halloween movies, Happy Death Day and its sequel, and Jem and the Holograms, to name a few.

The article did not say when he will appear on the show, but I am assuming the week of Halloween. Although, he has two movies coming out in October, The Exorcist: Believer on the 6th and Five Nights at Freddy on the 27th.

Other guest Sharks this season include Fanatics chairman & CEO Michael Rubin; Candace Nelson, founder of Sprinkles Cupcakes and CN2 Ventures and Pizzana co-founder; Emma Grede, CEO and co-founder of Good American and founding partner of Skims. Daniel Lubetzky, founder of Kind Snacks, Camino Partners and Starts With Us.

Shark Tank is back with all new episodes on September 29th.

Do you want to swim on Shark Tank?
January 18th, 2023 under Barbara Corcoran, Shark Tank. [ Comments: none ]

ABC might not have announced that Shark Tank will be back for season 15, but they are already looking for entrepreneurs to share their money-making businesses with the moguls.

So if you want to pitch the Sharks like Barbara Corcoran, then you can apply here. Good luck!

When it comes to if the business competition show will return in the Fall, I think it is a given. The only thing that could stop it is if a tornado hit the studio and turned into a Sharknado situation.

I will be here all week!

ABC is feeding Gwyneth Paltrow to the sharks!
August 17th, 2022 under Shark Tank. [ Comments: none ]

Shark Tank is going to start its 14th season with a live episode on September 23rd. Then in an episode after that, we are going to see Gwyneth Paltrow join the tank.

I hope that they don’t only do beauty products when she is there. I want them to take a risk and go all risqué, as in having someone who has a company that makes sex toys. How awesome would it be to see Mr. Wonderful blush over the idea? But a better question would be, is Barbara Corcoran mature enough for something like that? We know Mark Cuban will say he and his wife use something like it. Robert Herjavec will be like I love the idea, but it is nothing that I can get behind…even if it is a butt toy. Daymond John will be his grumpy self because he needs to use the toy. And then there is Lori Greiner, who will chuckle nervously.

Please, ABC, make this happen. I know you are family-friendly, but the items are friendly for the older family members.

Along with Paltrow making her first appearance on the show, so is Tony Xu, CEO of and co-founder of DoorDash. They will be joined by previous guest Sharks Emma Grede, CEO and co-founder of Good American, founding partner of SKIMS and co-founder of Safely; Peter Jones, Dragon on BBC’s “Dragon’s Den”; Daniel Lubetzky, founder of KIND and co-founder of SOMOS Foods; and Kendra Scott, founder, executive chairwoman & chief creative officer, Kendra Scott, LLC.

Shark Tank is going live for its season premiere
May 26th, 2022 under Barbara Corcoran, Shark Tank. [ Comments: none ]

Shark Tank is going to be back in the Fall for its 14th season, and they are going to do something they have never done before. They are going to go live.

This is old news, but I ignored the press release about the renewal. So I found out about it when Barbara Corcoran posted this video showing how excited she is for it.

I am excited about it also because I am sure we are going to see how she and Mr. Wonderful really act towards each other before the editors make them look more family-friendly.
