There are two updates tonight. In season 9, Snarky Tea, a tea brand aimed at “snarky women” did a deal with Mr. Wonderful and Bethenny Frankel for $150,000 for 50% of the business. In the very same season 9 episode, Jennifer Paschall and Gita Vasseghi did a deal with Lori and Bethenny for $100,000 for 25% of No Mo-Stache, a portable waxing kit. Tonight we'll see how both these businesses are doing.

Episode 1009 – The Shark Investors and Entrepreneurs

The Shark Tank Episode 1009 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.
