Want to win $2,000 tonight thanks to business billionaires like Mark Cuban and Daymond John? You can tonight by entering DraftKings Sportsbook’s free pool contest about tonight’s episode of Shark Tank!
This evening the popular show that puts entrepreneurs in front of big capital airs on ABC at 8:00 p.m. ET, and you can win by making picks about what will happen when billionaires meet bootstrappers.
If you’ve never seen Shark Tank during its 11-season run on ABC, startup businesses bring everything from food items to products you might already own. Making deals with the “Sharks” on stage usually involves giving up a piece of your business in exchange for their cash and advice. .
Kevin O’Leary sits in the middle, is nicknamed “Mr. Wonderful” for ironic reasons, and tends to be grouchy. Lori Greiner would sell your family from underneath you if QVC had buyers. Mark Cuban owns the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks and a case of ADD. Daymond John is always the best-dressed, and loves to get in a dig at his fellow sharks after a deal.
We pick our best bets after reading official synopsis of the episode, and we’ll quote it below:
An entrepreneur wants to get into the cheese business; an energy product to keep people awake and alert on the go; a play-driven environment for kids; a garden product designed to keep homes free of pests; Daniel Lubetzky guest judges.
Daniel Lubetzky is the founder and CEO of Kind, LLC, who makes those Kind Bars you think are healthy but have enough sugar they act like a Butterfinger. Our picks are below:
What will the result of the first pitch be?
- Deal accepted
- Deal offered but rejected
- No deal offered
Usually the summary of the episode is in pitch order, and when you’ve got a guy/girl making cheese and a mass-food production billionaire, things tend to go together! We say they find a deal.
Will Kevin (Mr. Wonderful) offer a deal involving a royalty?
- Kevin not on episode
Kevin is an OG shark, and he loves his royalty deals that get him a piece of the business forever, and his cash back faster. He seems to be making these deals less lately, but tonight’s categories don’t always match up with his interests. We’ll fade the royalty here.
Will Lori say the term “QVC”?
- Lori not on episode
Lori has been on the episodes this season, and she mentions her extensive ties to QVC more often than not. But tonight’s products don’t seem very QVC friendly, as they don’t sell a ton of food or energy products. A one-week reprieve for the biggest trope amongst any shark.
