Episode 519 is a special Thursday night Shark Tank. ABC is “testing” the Thursday night slot to see if the Sharks might swim on Thursdays in the future. Four new businesses jump in seeking an investment from the wealthy Sharks and episode 519 features a gender based Shark fight with Lori and Barbara teaming up against Robert, Mark and Mr. Wonderful! Who will prevail and which business sparks the battle?
Sanjiv Patel hopes his line of spicy nuts called Lord Nut Levington fire up a heated Shark fight. Pat Yates brings his ultra comfy slippers called Happy Feet hoping the Sharks slip him some cash. Josh Faherty and Scott Adams pitch Velocity Signs, sign waving machines that replace “sign spinners” at the side of the road. Two women from Macon, GA have created trousers and leggings that give instant, built-in uplift to one’s derriere.
Which companies come away with a Shark for a partner and which ones get crushed like cockroaches? Tune in to ABC to find out!
Follow up segments featuring past Shark Tank success stories are a regular feature on Shark Tank. Episode 519 updates fans on Byron Young and his bean bag bed business, Cordaroys. Lori invested $200K in the business back in season 4 and the giant bean bags have been selling well. Byron's segment was so popular, his website crashed for two days! Shark Tank Blog did an interview with Byron after the show aired!

Episode 519 – The Shark Investors and Entrepreneurs
The Shark Tank Episode 519 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.
