episode 1222Mark, Kevin, Lori, Daymond and Robert are on the panel for episode 1222. This episode  is the season 12 finale. The Sharks will evaluate 4 new businesses seeking investments and guidance from the wealthy investors.

Dino Don Lessem and Val Jones seek some Jurassic cash for Dino Don, their company that makes life sized robotic dinosaurs for zoos, museums and aquariums all over the world. Judy Abrahams and Chris Guerrera seek a Shark for the Super Potty Trainer, their adjustable device that makes potty training easy by preventing a child from falling in the toilet. Debbie Wei Mullin introduces the Sharks to Copper Cow Coffee, her pour over, Vietnamese style coffees and creamers. Destiny Padgett hopes to light up the Tank with her Lit Handlers, neoprene koozees with handles and pockets and wild designs. Which businesses score a deal tonight?

There was no update segment noted in ABC’s press release for this episode. Usually on the season finales, the update segment features a look back at the previous season. That’s what to expect tonight. Hopefully, next season Shark Tank will be back to normal.

Episode 1222 – The Shark Investors and Entrepreneurs

The Shark Tank Episode 1222 entrepreneurs will make their best pitch to the panel of five Shark investors who will use their own money if they choose to invest. The Shark Investors negotiate on the spot without any previous information, which differs from typical negotiations between venture capital investors and entrepreneurial start-ups.

Companies pitching the Shark Investors must go through a rigorous due diligence process before an on-air deal is completed. Shark Tank Blog follow ups help you keep track of the companies that end up successful and the ones that don’t complete their deal.
