Shark Tank Season 12 premieres tonight, October 16th on ABC with the sharks returning and a whole new cast of hopeful entrepreneurs looking for a deal.
Who can you expect to see on the brand new season?
COVID-19 almost halted production of the new episodes. Production started at Sony Studios in Los Angeles but then was later moved to the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas.
Barbara Corcoran spoke to Inc. and told them what it was like filming during the pandemic. “We were waiting and waiting on the state to give approvals for filming, and then finally when we decided to take it out of the state it got pulled together so quickly in Las Vegas,” she relayed.
Shark Tank is welcoming the same panel of investors back including Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, Daymond John and guest Shark Blake Mycoskie.
Who are the Entrepreneurs on the Premiere Episode?
You will meet a father and son duo from Cincinnati, Ohio to pitch their solution for storing paint efficiently. Two tech guys from Somerville, Massachusetts will pitch SparkCharge, which is a portable electric vehicle charger.
A couple from New Jersey have a product that is perfect during the COVID-19 pandemic. They designed a product to keep garments safe from odor and bacteria called Garma Guard. Then we head out to the west coast when we meet an entrepreneur from Oregon who tried to convince the Sharks that he brought blankets into the 21st century.
Get a sneak peek of SparkCharge’s Pitch:
