Shark Tank Season 13 Episode 1 Spoilers
The series has been reputed to kickstart several impressive business ideas, and this season will not be any different. Contestants will come, present their ideas, and face the firing squad of the investors. The investors are reputed to minutely scrutinize the products, concepts, or business models offered before them. As the investors often invest their own money in these ventures, they will readily dismiss the weaker ideas. Some sharks like Kevin O’Leary can be very honest while discussing the dreams of the contestants.
Other panelists like Lori Greiner will presumably be milder in their rejection, if and when the time comes. The question seemingly is, to shake or not to shake, and if the panelists are impressed by the entrepreneurs’ ideas, they will be fortunate to receive the “gentleman’s agreement.” If the contestants fail to convince the panelists, they have to leave the premise empty-handed. There will also be some guest panelists, about whom we shall know in due time.
