Shark Tank

Shark Tank is an American reality television series which premiered on ABC on August 9, 2009. It features business pitches from aspiring entrepreneurs to a panel of potential investors. It is part of the Dragon's Den series of reality shows, itself based on the original Japanese Money Tigers.
The show features a panel of potential investors, called "sharks", that considers offers from aspiring entrepreneurs seeking investments for their business or product. The entrepreneur can make a deal on the show if a panel member is interested. However, if all of the panel members opt out, the entrepreneur leaves empty-handed. The show is said to portray "the drama of pitch meetings and the interaction between the entrepreneurs and tycoons" A one-hour pitch by a contestant is edited down to "a dramatic 10-minute segment". The show is said to personalize "the desperation and pain experienced by victims of a broken-down economy".

If you know me then you know I am not a reality Tv fan. But my boyfriend is. And he has sucked me into watching a few. This is one of those that I can't help but find entertaining. I'm amazed at what people try to get money for. And the reaction of the sharks never fails to amuse. It's not must see Tv but if you have nothing to do, this will entertain you.

Shark Tank - 5x19

A mechanical engineer from San Francisco hopes to catch a deal with his patented bike lighting LED system that attaches to the wheel rim for safety and utility but incurs the wrath of Mark Cuban along the way. Parents from Los Angeles tout their baby wear with reinforced knees and built-in squeakers to help caregivers keep track of a crawling baby on the move. The Sharks' reaction brings the mom to tears. An entrepreneur from La Grange, IL thinks his shoe buffing pad that attaches to a household power drill could revolutionize shoe shining, and a Rochester, NY inventor wants the Sharks to invest in his "modular laces" which enable kids and adults to customize their sneaker looks with different styles and colors. Who among these do the Sharks agree is the "real deal?" We follow up on Kazam, a pedal-less training bike by a Virginia Beach entrepreneur in which Mark Cuban invested last season
