One of our not so guilty Friday night pleasures is watching Shark Tank.
Shark Tank is a reality show that gives budding entrepreneurs the chance to make their dreams come true and become successful and possibly wealthy business people. But the entrepreneurs must first try to convince five tough, multi-millionaire tycoons to part with their own hard-earned cash and give them the funding they need to jump start their ideas.
These five tycoons are known as The Sharks:
Here's some more info about the Sharks, as well as some of our personal opinions:
Barb (yeah, we know each other like that) is usually the one to be the most flexible when making a deal, Barb is the current "only female in the house" shark, but other times you may catch Lori Greiner in her place. If Lori is sitting in the chair, you can damn well bet you're going to hear about all her experience with home shopping networks...
Ironically nicknamed "Mr. Wonderful," this guy is the worst. Seriously, he's over the top obnoxious and goes out of his way to tell entrepreneurs to reject other offers when he himself isn't putting one up. His whole demeanor screams "Please, punch me in my face!"
The thing about Daymond is that you'll rarely see him make an offer, much less actually close a deal. Why? Daymond isn't rude like Kevin, he's far from it. However, if someone comes in with a product that's not related to the fashion industry, he's automatically out, citing he wouldn't be a good fit. This could be a nice move on Daymond's part, allowing the entrepreneur to find someone who would be able to help them more, but we think Daymond is seriously limiting himself.
That or he's a gigantic wuss.
FAVORITE SHARK ALERT. SOMEONE GIVE MARK CUBAN ALL THE AWARDS, PLEASE. (Pssst, Mark! Send us some Mavs tickets, okay? xoxo, Insticator)
Robert is the nicest of the Sharks, don't let this picture fool you. Whenever he rejects a deal, you're not even angry, you just think "That's okay, Rob knows best. Let's give him a hug!"
Shark Tank airs Friday nights on ABC at 9 PM. Will you be watching along with us tonight?
