Are you a fan of business pitches, cap tables, and brutal honesty in negotiations? Then you too can win $2,000 tonight in tonight’s DraftKings Shark Tank picks contest!
The startup show that dwarfs them all airs tonight on ABC at 8:00 p.m. ET, and you can watch follow along and enter this contest to win by guessing what will happen when entrepreneurs seek cash and connections from five well-known business sharks.
Small and startup businesses from across the country bring in everything from food to many items you possibly already own. And if you’re a fan of the show, which is now in Season 11 of a very successful run, you know the drill by now. Kevin O’Leary as Mr. Wonderful is kinda mean sometimes. Lori Greiner sells the GDP of many small nations on QVC. That Mark Cuban owns the Dallas Mavericks?
We take a look at a few of the 13 questions, and pick some best bets to help you find the money!
What will the result of the first pitch be?
- Deal accepted
- Deal offered but rejected
- No deal offered
We won with this theory last week, which was that each Shark Tank episode follows a pattern, and they tend to with a positive note. We’re going with “deal accepted” here again, as the weirdo who gets sent away for a bad idea or awful valuation is usually later in the episode.
Will Kevin (Mr. Wonderful) offer a deal involving a royalty?
- Kevin not on episode
Kevin has been on every episode this season, so you should be good there. Although he didn’t offer a royalty deal last week, that just seems to increase the odds of his success this week. We’ll go with a yes here.
Will Lori say the term “QVC”?
- Lori not on episode
Somehow we got this wrong last week as well, but we’ll take the overriding trend that it’s a yes. Lori was also on last week’s episode as well, and QVC still exists. Sometimes you’ve gotta ride this train.
Will a contestant cry during a pitch?
There were no tears shed last week (at least on camera), but are the small business owners of America aren’t getting that hardcore where they’re emotionless? Somehow we doubt it. We bet Mark Burnett and his production team mixes in a crier or two this week.
