John Paul DeJoria makes his “guest Shark” debut in episode 501, replacing Robert Herjavec. Dejoria, along with “regular Sharks” Mark, Lori, Daymond, and Mr. Wonderful, will evaluate 4 new entrepreneurs. This is the first guest Shark appearance of season 5, so it should be interesting. Featured businesses include Tree T Pee, a tented covering for saplings and young plants that conserves water and saves saplings from frost damage. 180 Cup brings the frat house to Shark Tank with its ubiquitous red, disposable cup that has a hidden shot glass in the base. Better Life has safe, all-natural cleaning products that leave no toxic residue on surfaces. Finally, Kymera Body Boards has an electric-powered body board. One of these businesses will give a pitch that Daymond says is “The Worst of All Time," which is it?

Episode 501 – The Shark Investors and Entrepreneurs
The Shark Tank Episode 501 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.
