Shark Tank

I enjoyed it but I didn’t find many of the products that exciting (particularly for a launch episode). I watched an episode of the US version on a flight recently and remember noting down 2 products that I was actually interested in purchasing.

Overall though I did like the panel more than what I got from the promo’s. It didn’t rate too well up against The Voice / the Block but hopefully there is still a chance to gain some viewers when The Voice moves away from Tuesday’s.

I did too especially Dave!

Did Shark Tank Australia have a host and/or narrator?


Narrator, Sarah Harris


Just as I thought, 10 has quickly scheduled a repeat of the first episode tonight after Gogglebox.

It was also reviewed on Gogglebox this week and received a good reception.

Deals Are Done For Beauty For Men, A Dog Dunny And An Aussie Beverage

All New Shark Tank Australia. Tuesdays At 7.30pm On 10 And 10 Play.

Tonight, it was all fun and games on Shark Tank Australia, until the Sharks got hungry. But, as the tables turned, who fought for the chance to secure a deal of a lifetime?

First in the Tank, was Perth innovator and the youngest entrepreneur to face the Sharks, 13-year-old Lucas Lane and his mum Brianna. In just nine short months of trading, Glossy Boys, the three-in-one gel nail polish pen for men, has earned an impressive $67,000 of sales, with a profit margin of 64%. Seeking $25,000 for 5% equity, Sharks Jane, Davie and Cat put forward very different offers, before joining forces to ‘unboring their nails’, securing a remarkable result for Lucas: $75,000 between them, for a 20% chunk of the business.

Next up was Sydney-based Sebastian Waddell, with a brand-new solution for doggy pollution. Entering the Tank with his furry friend Hugo, Sebastian was seeking $250,000 for a 20% share of his fully automatic self-cleaning dog toilet, Fydoo. With pet products in his wheelhouse, Shark Davie shocked Sebastian and his fellow Sharks by putting forward two offers. The first was $250,000 for 45% of the business, and the second, an astonishing $500,000 for the entire Fydoo business! Quick to shut down relinquishing his business, Sebastian agreed on $250,000 for 40% equity.

And finally, the quality of Australian native plants was showcased in a drink, by NSW mother and daughter team, Tara and Mel Crocker. The Indigenous owned business YAALA Sparkling entered the Tank seeking $125,000 for 10% equity. After a successful taste test, not one, but two Sharks, Cat and Jane, put forward a combined offer of $125,000 for 30% equity plus royalties. After a short haggle, it was ‘cheers’ to the final deal of $125,000 for 20%, and both entrepreneurs and Sharks couldn’t be happier with their all-girl team.

Unfortunately, missing out on investments tonight, were the retro video gaming museum The Nostalgia Box, and the Dylan Alcott-backed world’s first 3D printed wheelchair, Rove Wheelchairs.

Next Tuesday, big personalities, an Aussie meal favourite, and a product to tackle an issue at the heart of the nation, take over the Tank.

Fire And Ice Investments See Sharks Run Hot And Cold.

On tonight’s all new Shark Tank Australia, tiny pitches came with big personalities, revolutionary products, and a fresh take on an old favourite.

First up, were the confident Sarah and Lewis from New South Wales, whose products have already taken the world by storm. Notching up an impressive 200 million views on Tik Tok and with the endorsement of celebrity Kendall Jenner, the entrepreneurs entered the Tank seeking $250,000 for 10% equity their ice facial tool, Contour Cube. Not only were the Sharks struck by the star power of the Contour Cube, but they were also just as impressed by the product itself, with a feeding frenzy that saw four Sharks, Robert, Jane, Davie and Sabri, reeled in with $375,000 for a 30% share of the business.

Next to face the Tank, were cousins Frank and Frank from rural NSW, hoping their solution to a nationwide problem, would ignite a spark in our Sharks. The Fire Halo, is a quicker, safer and easier way to protect homes from bushfires by flooding the home’s gutters. Opening up about her own personal bushfire experience, Cat was keen to invest, but admitted that Robert was the right Shark to expand the Fire Halo in a global market. Originally seeking $100,00 for 20% of the business, the Franks walked away with a life-changing deal from Robert of $150,000 for 33% of Fire Halo.

Unfortunately, missing out on investments tonight, were Pum’s Kitchen’s home-style Thai sauces and home-chemistry kits, Tiny Science Lab.

Next Tuesday, we meet an entrepreneur hoping to keep a craft from her homeland alive, a husband and wife team hoping to take the backache out of toddler feeding time, and a trio of children’s entertainers who pitch to the Sharks in song!

Robert’s investment in Fire Halo is timely, with a dangerous fire season coming up. Frank and Frank should consider having some of their products sold at Bunnings and Mitre 10, and do more promotions.


Food Catchers, Crafting And Children’s Entertainers Had Our Sharks Circling.

All New Shark Tank Australia. Tuesdays At 7.30pm On 10 And 10 Play.

Tonight, on Shark Tank Australia, it was a night of firsts, with the first ever pitch in song, and the first artificial intelligence product was pitched.

First into the Tank to face the Sharks, was Sydney-based husband and wife team, Rachel and Brad Cohen. Their product, the Catchy, is a world-first food catcher for highchairs and had already sold 50,000 units to over 60 countries across the world. Seeking $300,000 in exchange for 2% of their business, the entrepreneurs shocked the Sharks with the revelation that the company already has investors on board. After interest from four Sharks Sabri, Jane, Robert and Davie, it was Davie and Robert who teamed up and cemented a $300k for a 5% share, with royalties to be paid until the investment is paid back.

Next up was Akanksha Sidha ,who flew from Perth with a business idea that’s come from much further afield. Excited to bring the world one of the most ancient forms of embroidery from India with her clothing line KAASIDA, Akanksha was seeking $35,000 for 10% equity. With high costs and low sales, Sharks Sabri, Davie, Robert and Jane were out, and her dreams of an investment were hanging by a thread. After a teary offer and counter-offer, a deal was struck with Catriona at $35,000 for 30% of KAASIDA.

Hoping to sing and dance their way to a perfect pitch were Sydney children’s entertainers Laura, Mim and Michael. Together, the trio are ARIA-nominated children’s music group The Beanies, and were seeking an entertaining $150,000 for a 10% share of the business. Hailed “the best pitch of Shark Tank Australia ever**”** by OG Shark Robert Herjavec, he teamed up with fellow Sharks Davie and Jane, for a 50% stake of the business, at the asking price, with the option to buy back in the future. Now that’s something to sing about.

Unfortunately, missing out on an investment tonight, was AI Toolkit, an AI-powered toolkit designed to save teachers countless hours of lesson preparation, marking assessments, and writing report comments.

Next Tuesday, we’ve got it all covered, from an Eco angle on nappies to specialised hair grooming products.

Sharks Gets Festive With Nappies And Grooming.

All New Shark Tank Australia. Tuesdays At 7.30pm On 10 And 10 Play.

Tonight on Shark Tank Australia, strong pitches had the Sharks in stitches, but as the Tank got festive, the Sharks got serious as our investors went in search of the next big deal.

First into the Tank was mum-of-two, Aami Mills from Canberra, with her baby-focussed brand. With four out of the five Sharks having children, Aami was hoping that the odds were on her side, when asking for $100,000 for a 10% stake in her eco-friendly cloth nappy business, Mimi & Co. With Robert, Catriona and Sabri out, it was down to Davie who teamed up with Jane to share a $100,000 investment for 30% equity. An investment win for Aami, and a win for the environment too!

Katie Rawall from New South Wales was looking for global festive domination with her business idea, Holiday Celebration Trees. Seeking $300,000 for 15% equity for her patented shelved Christmas trees, Robert, having a few festive companies under his belt, saw the potential of the displays in malls around the US, with Davie able to cater to the Australian market through his own company. They teamed up to spread the holiday cheer, investing $300,000 for 30% equity, plus $25 royalty until they’re able to recover 30% of the original investment.

Next to dive into the Tank was Amadou Doumbia, hoping marketing genius Sabri Suby would be the one to take his business to the next level. Wuli Grooming are gender-neutral, Australian-made vegan hair styling products designed for curly and wavy-haired folks first in mind. With four Sharks out, it was down to Sabri to invest the $150,000 Amadou was seeking for 15% equity. After a heated pitch in the Tank, king of grooming Amadou partnered up with his dream Shark who invested $150,000 for 40%, plus $2 royalty until the investment is paid back.

Unfortunately, missing out on an investment tonight was premium electric scooter business, Mearth Scooters.

Next Tuesday, standby for the ultimate Shark Tank jackpot, as one Entrepreneur is offered one million dollars! With innovative products ranging from tattoos to condoms and swimwear to chicken accessories, who will receive the massive cash investment?

10 is already promoting next week’s episode. Saw a clip during The Cheap Seats tonight.

It’s a shame the ratings aren’t on fire. Tonight’s episode was really good.


It is actually a great show and needs to be on AU tv.

that Christmas tree (a.k.a. a stacked shelf with some tinsel on it) was a ridiculous idea. I have no idea why they went for it. And $600 RRP! ffs some people have more money than sense if they’re buying that for $600.

what is that hanging off Robert’s back? is it a cape? Really bad photoshop? Oh no, oh please, no it’s not a shark fin, is it?

It looks like something sitting on a pillar behind him? Can’t quite make out what it is though.

Shark’s fin - you see them where they walk in for the pitches.

Much like the Sharks at first I thought it was silly concept but after a while I could see potential for it. Obviously it’s not something that people will buy for their homes at that price but I can imagine there being a real market for it in retail settings, other public spaces and some workplaces.
