This week we've gathered around the TV at 8 pm to watch ABC's Shark Tank, the show where five entrepreneurs are lined up to hear pitches from lowly business people needing money and expertise. My family comments on everything, unlike a movie where the rule is to shut up and let everyone have their own individual journey. "He's scummy, he's nice, she has morals, he doesn't. That pitch was terrible, oh look at the predatory looks on their faces when the scantily clad girls come out."
We love to comment.
Last night Barbara the shark got lambasted and the night before, Lori Greiner was on the chopping block. Why do the men feel the need to pick on the women? I don't see Fubu picking on Mark. Or Kevin picking on Robert. Well, actually Kevin is pretty rude to everyone.
Here's my lowdown of each Shark and what I think of them:
Mark- sports team owner, business man and well spoken guy, Mark seems like the nicest one of the bunch and often opts out early if he feels he can't add anything to joining the business.
FUBU - He has the cutest little smiley lips but don't let that fool you. He's mean. Last night he pretty much lied when he promised the guitar chord inventor an endorsement by a really big pop star he managed. Wait. does he manage talent now? Cool.
Kevin - Dresses well, Probably came from nothing and is never gonna look back, including being humble or polite.
Real Estate Woman Barbara - My husband and I REALLY like her. But then, hubby is in real estate. She is classy, carries herself well and speaks nicely to the contestants, I mean business people. Why does FUBU think she's not a good business mentor?
This week each shark has chosen a favorite episode from the re-runs and so far we've been thoroughly entertained. I love to see the updates on past products, whether the sharks chose them to mentor or not. I'm looking forward to the next few nights of sharks and chumming with bait.
What about you? Who's your favorite?
