    If so, a couple questions . . .
    Who is your most favorite Shark?
    Who is your least favorite Shark?


    And if you can remember . . .
    Which product/company pitch did you think was great?
    Which product/company pitch did you think was awful?

    I've seen a few. I recently listen to a podcast with Chris Sacca where he mentioned he was going to go on for a few episodes. I would be quite interested in seeing if he chose anything to invest in. He's a bit of a legend in the making in the world of angel investing.

    Yes!

    I wouldn't want to do business with Kevin!

    The females truly seem interested in helping people.

    I love Mr. Wonderful. It's a fun show to watch. I also like Beyond the Tank. There were a few of those this season. Very interesting.

    I'm a pretty big fan. Not sure if I have a favorite shark. I have purchased a few products from the show, mainly Wicked Good Cupcakes and cards from Lovepop.

    The only "bad" shark was the original Kevin. He's probably a sharp guy but he was pretty bad on this show. Fortunately he didn't last long.

    I've watched it occasionally for awhile, but then attended a conference recently where Daymond John was one of our speakers and it motivated me to make it a point to set the DVR for it. Fun entertainment!

    CNBC,has the show on a few times a week. I didn't start watching until season 3 or 4 and caught up on all of the earlier ones via CNBC. I saw an interview with Robert where he said the sharks go in cold, they know nothing about the product/service until the pitch starts. Obviously the pitches are edited, some go on for quite awhile. He also said some (he didn't say what percentage) of the deals that are made never happen once the due diligence is done and some of the pitchmen turn out to have been less than truthful with their numbers :) This was originally a Canadian show called Dragon's Den, which started about 10 years ago. Robert and Kevin were both on that show, Robert for the first 6 years, Kevin for the first 8. I wish we had access to that show.

    image.png Hubby and I love the show. Can't say we have a favorite shark.....although we do find "Mr. Wonderful" entertaining how he seems to love his royalty deals. I think Robert H. seems genuinely nice and the products that Lori G airs on QVC seem to do well. Many of the ideas seem so logical that you think "why didn't I think of that?" This paint brush cover comes to mind.
