    why do they have to be so mean? They pressured a guy into a deal that they knew was horrible and even said so after he was gone (the guy with the english class songs)

    I don't feel like they are all mean. I think the guy in the very middle of the table (Richard, I believe) is the worst of the Sharks. He is always making comments that make money an animate object (i.e 'money doesn't cry for you; don't insult money').

    I actually don't believe that the deal the English teacher made was bad at all - although he gave up his entire company, he gets a 5% royalty and a buy-back opportunity of up to equal share (about 16.5%). Overall not a terrible deal.

    I agree with you on this one. "Mea" sort of goes hand in hand with being a shark. Those guys (and girl) love money, they know how to make it...and they are passionated about it. I actully pitched 3 products to Kevin Harrington, the shark on the left, last year before shark tank aired.

    He's an incredibly brilliant person with an outstanding personality.... and he's a shark. It's fascinating to watch him work when you sit in the same room with him.

    He hass one heck of a product that can help you take your idea or invention to the marketplace; start to finish as they call it.

    It's worth taking a look at :

    I think that's the format of the show, To be strict. Although sometimes your are correct... If ever I have an invention, I will also hesitate to Swim with the sharks because sometimes they are very offensive that if I am on the shoes of the entrepreneur... I would have walked away from the room and doesn't care if I didn't get funded. Shark Tank is an intelligent show amd I hope that there will be season 2. If you want to know more about the show. visit for more Shark Tank stories.
