New Shark Tank Episode: Season 6 Episode 27

New shark tank episode May 1st 2015 (2)

Shark Tank Season 6 episode 27 airs Friday, May 1 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. In tonight’s episode, the Sharks take no prisoners, driving one entrepreneur to tears and grilling another: “Are you here to get exposure or to get exposed?” This week, a man from Brattleboro, VT joins singer Pat Boone to pitch a new eco-friendly car that they claim is superior to electric vehicles because it runs on compressed air; a super-fit mother of three from Ft. Collins, CO touts the benefits of her snack bars connected to a popular diet; a fisherman who holds the world record for biggest striped bass ever caught tries to net a Shark’s investment in his unique lure that helped him make that catch; and two men from Cincinnati, OH provide customers with sets of glasses and frames that are interchangeable and reasonably priced. And a follow-up story on Heidi Ho Organics in which Lori Greiner invested earlier this season on “Shark Tank.

Show Summary: “Shark Tank,” the critically-acclaimed reality show that has reinvigorated entrepreneurship in America, has also become a culturally defining series. The recipient of the 2014 Emmy Award for Outstanding Structured Reality Program, the business-themed show returns to the ABC Television Network for its sixth season on Friday, September 26.

The Sharks — tough, self-made, multi-millionaire and billionaire tycoons — continue their search to invest in the best businesses and products that America has to offer. The Sharks will once again give people from all walks of life the chance to chase the American dream, and potentially secure business deals that could make them millionaires.

The Sharks are: billionaire Mark Cuban, owner and chairman of AXS TV and outspoken owner of the 2011 NBA champion Dallas Mavericks; real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran; “Queen of QVC” Lori Greiner; technology innovator Robert Herjavec; fashion and branding expert Daymond John; and venture capitalist Kevin O’Leary.

The entrepreneurs who dare to enter the Tank must try to convince the Sharks to part with their own hard-earned cash and give them the funding they desperately need to turn their dreams into million dollar realities. All of the good, bad, emotional and even absurd pitches help showcase the “I wish I had thought of that” business ideas and products.

But the Sharks have a goal, too — to get a return on their investment and own a piece of the next big business idea. When the Sharks hear an idea worth sinking their teeth into, they’re more than ready to declare war and fight each other for a piece of it.
