Wahoo for Season 2: ABC’s Shark Tank is Back!
by J. J. Cannon
They’re back! Love ’em or hate ’em I can’t get enough! Barbara Corcoran, Real Estate Mogul, Daymond John “The Godfather of Urban Fashion”, Kevin Harrington “The Original Infomercial King”, Kevin O’Leary, self proclaimed “Eco-Preneur” (aka Mean Kevin), and Robert Herjavec, Technology Wiz, are circling and ready to bite – hungry for the next big thing.
As I watch the entrepreneurs take the precarious walk down what seems like a very long hallway, through the estate-sized double doors and into shark infested waters…um, I mean the big conference room aptly named the “Shark Tank” – I hold my breath for a moment. You can cut the tension with a knife and, of course, through the magic of television, and just the right amount of daunting music, I am sucked in. My fellow inventor friends and other fans of the show are all aTwitter, and sometimes we are even chatting with the entrepreneurs being featured. We root for them and wonder which of the Sharks will bite – do they have a winner or will they be reduced to mere chum by Kevin O’Leary channeling his inner Simon Cowell (I just have to believe he’s a teddy bear behind the scenes)?
I don’t know about you, but there are several entrepreneurs who I would love to see a follow-up on – a “Where Are They Now” segment of the show. I posted the topic on the ST message boards http://abc.go.com/shows/shark-tank/discuss?cat=276719&tsn=-1 and hope the powers that be will take notice.
How about you? Who are the three entreprenuers you would most like to see a follow-up on?
