New episodes of Shark Tank start next Friday 01/20/2012

Can't wait. I'm hoping they get rid of Foxworthy though (although he was a lot better than I thought he would be).

I just noticed this on my To Do list on the DVR...we've always enjoyed this show.

This show is pure capitalism at its best. It's awesome. I'd actually like to see Trump on it, though does he know ANYTHING besides real estate?

Not sure if this shows garners enough posts for an episode thread so I'm posting here.

Thought the Guitar Buddy was a great idea. Even Robert "learned" in a few seconds. But what bothered me was how they were all OK with manufacturing in US (except Kevin) 'cause the inventor wanted to create jobs here. But last week they ALL were adamant that it order to succeed one should manufacture overseas. WTH?!!

I also thought the You Smell soap bars was not that great an idea. I think Robert was just mesmerized by her boobs! His offer was incredibly generous.

I'm looking for those shrimp burgers at retail. The looking back piece showed that the developer is making big bucks based on his appearance on the show alone, even though the Sharks are kicking themselves for letting him get away

Manufacturing small plastic parts isn't necessarily the same problem, especially when the actual manufacturing cost is a smaller percentage of the total price.

Heh, I was going to bring up this exact thing, if I remembered it.. you beat me to it.

One thing I note was that these episodes were far apart in production order. I *THINK* the ok with manufacturing overseas one was the first ep of the season, this one was later. I have no idea how often they actually tape their segments. Maybe it was all the same day/set of days, maybe it was months apart.

I too noticed the inconsistency, but I actually APPLAUD them for even broaching the topic of manufacturing overseas at all. I would've thought they would be totally chicken to even suggest that. I'm glad that their "love of money" won over (at least on that one ep).

I just saw today on Damon's twitter feed that they taped the entire season over two weeks over the summer (2011).

I thought the "Smell of Money" guy was an idiot for not taking the 80% deal. You get to keep 20% of the business by doing NOTHING, and let Damon do all the work? Moron.

I see next week they've replaced Barbara. Good thing -- I was getting tired of her.

i thought it was a profit margin issue... the truck thing was too expensive to make in the US, while the guitar buddy had a good profit margin... could've been better in asia, but good enough to make money in the US and still contribute to the economy.

The makeup people did a fine job on Megan, she doesn't look like that in her other photos or appearance. http://7liveonline.com/Local-entrepr...estors/8527774

The only difference I saw was that on the Shark Tank, she definitely accentuated her breasts and on the local interview show...not so much.

That's what I mean. She is probably a dress down type and on the Shark Tank they cranked up the va va voom.

Watching this weeks episode (Feb 10) with the wine balloon guy, it really bugs me when the sharks start bullying like that. And the more they bullied like that, the more I thought the guy should have been taking Kevin's ofter. If Mark really wanted to get his hands on the product THAT bad, then it's probably bigger than the guy even realized.

As for the towel with a hole, did I miss something, or were the sides of the towel completely open, thus still a bit lacking in the privacy department?

I also hated the way Mark tried to bully both the wine guy and the new female shark. I wish she had told Mark to shut up and stop trying to high-jack her deal. Before he opened his mouth she was willing to give wine guy $500,000, then when he backed and got back in for $400,000, I wanted her to offer the guy the $500,000 again with just her. I really wish she had stood up to him.

And I agree about the openness of the towel on the sides. I wanted the sharks to have the kids change under it. That would have prove it didn't work.

I don't think he was a chump. He did try to counter-offer but Cuban basically said "talk to the hand" because he is a big jerk.

He countered with 600k+3% royalty. After he lost leverage after the refusal on those terms he lost 200k.

He should have went with Mr. Wonderful and the licensing deal at that point, rather than accept a cash buyout deal for $200,000 less.

This. They kept saying he could walk out there with nothing which wasn't at all true. Once the $600,000 was gone I'd have countered with $500,000 and when they said no I'd immediately accepted Kevin's deal.

I also immediately said something to my wife when those kids put on the towel. No way you could change in that unless you wanted your junk shown to the world. I'm sure the first thing Lori will do is change that design. I still think she should have selected Daymond's offer since he could have simply added the towel to his production line.

I think a lower price for the company with a royalty would have been an accepted counteroffer to Cuban/QVC Gal. Reasoning: I'll reduce your risk by half for a royalty. Now they might counter my counter with a royalty of 2% or something but thats just playing the Shark game.

Agreed. I was hoping he wouldn't be blinded by the Cuban offer.. there's no reason they couldn't have thrown him 2% royalty. They're totally greedy bastard theives, just as Mr. Wonderful said.

I would have taken Kevin's deal the moment the other two started dicking me around. Screw me?!? No, SCREW YOU!

this is why emotion gets in the way of business. he'd have screwed himself if he was doing it just to spite Cuban.

But he would have made MORE money with Kevin.

I'm saying he should have gone with the better deal.

The cuban deal was good at $400, $500 or $600k plus a royalty. They choose not to offer any royalty and screw him over. If he took Kevin's deal, he would have screwed over Cuban out of 100% of the returns from the investment. Cuban 0. Wine Balloon. 1.
