I find myself strangely addicted to this. I like when they show the updates of people becoming millionaires. I have so many inventions that I want to go on there myself. Should Lori from QVC replace Barbara permanently?
Barbara surprisingly doesn't say much or invest in many contestants lately. What's up with that?
I think it's because she knows they are grooming Lori to replace her.
I find it interesting. I like it when the panel breaks it down to the contestants why they won't be investing.
Great show, yes its interesting and addictive!
Anyone catch the hot blond surfer they made a millionaire tonight? He wore flip flops to a business meeting.
The Platetopper doctor was such a greedy idiot. Why would you change your evaluation in the middle? He had million dollar offers and left with $90,000.
Oh I thought the heading said Stark Sands! Yes, I do, although he's kinda bland.
Terrible show, reveals how ignorant the money men really are, and how stupid and uninformed their intuitive snap decisions are.
His participation in the show should have cut the share prices of every company Mark Cuban is involved with by about 50%.
My boyfriend and I watch it a lot, but have slacked off the last few weeks.
I find myself increasingly irritated by Damon John, who is the founder of "FuBu". All the guy does, like, almost ALL he does, is sit there in an over the top suit, rub his chin and brood for the camera. I can't remember the last time I saw the guy invest in anyone or take the lead.
He's a complete smart ass. On one recent episode, some wide-eyed young man was pushing his business, I forget what it was, but two other 'Sharks' were interested. John sat there sniping at the guy for some unknown reason. My boyfriend kept saying "Damn, what's his deal with this one guy?". It was weird. Then when the guy answered one of his questions, John said, no, I think you're a liar, I'm out"..
We just looked at each other and said WTF?!!? The guy seemed kind and legitimate, not cocky or entitled like many of the people are. There apparently was some issue Mr. FuBu had with the man and he called him a liar on national television without any known or implied reason to the audience.
I'll watch again loyally when they get rid of that bitch but until then, I've become a fare weather viewer.
There are SO MANY successful, legitimate African American entrepreneurs out there. No idea why they picked this poseur asshole.
The music editing on that show is over-the-top RIDICULOUS. It makes me fucking laugh. DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNN.
The Gobie water bottle guy was such an arrogant douchebag. People would probably boycott his bottle just for his horrible behavior.
"You're going to regret this!! You're all going to regret this!!!"
I have only seen it once for about 10 minutes. A clearly unwell helicopter mom had designed a contraption to transform itself into every thing you ever needed to care for your baby. As if that were not weird enough, mom had actually named the unwieldy 5 in 1 bundle of padded fabric "The Cool Wazoo" which, I kid you not, was conceived as a means to keep your baby's ass cool on a playground swing.
After the not at all surprising "NO THANKS" from the entire panel, mom went into Sybil/Exorcist like facial contortion spasms producing 15 different expressions in 30 seconds, followed by a complete breakdown into a crying jag.
Lori Grenier changed her vote to YES! in an attempt to prevent the first televised case of maternal seppuku on prime time television.
I like it. I like to see what crazy ideas people come up with and how some ideas are so simple and creatively genius I can't believe o one thought of them before. I like when they analyze the validity of a concept as a future.
I like Lori the best. I like Mark because his mind works so fast and his attention span is so short that it's fun to see when he gets impatient with the chit chat.
Don't like Barbara at all. Her scope is very limited.
Robert is too soft hearted and not a "shark" thus often loses out on good deals.
I like Damien and I always understand his reasoning. When he called the guy a liar he had factual evidence.
Don't like Mr. Wonderful at all. I get that he built this persona for the show, but it's just a silly and contrived persona. I would rather they act like themselves.
What's up with Barbara and Lori never being in the same room together. Can they only have one female shark at a time? Are they trying to push Barbara out? Why would she agree to sometimes being replaced with Lori? If people get used to Lori, then Barbara's out.

This is Gobie water bottle's headquarters...all 766 square feet of it:
I find Mark Cuban and the bald white guy very hot so, yes, I tune in every so oiften.
*bump* Is anyone watching the new season?
I watch this show every now and then. I love the fact that one of the sharks looks like a long lost Annie Lennox' twin sister.
I like the show. The banter between the judges is weirdly cute and they all seem like nice, well-meaning people. It's refreshing to see a show about judging people's ideas where the people presenting the ideas aren't regularly and needlessly ripped to shreds (except that shrill shithead with the cancer bracelets, but she totally deserved it).
I watch it from time to time, but it's not a show I must see every week.
It's one of the few current shows I miss since my tv went out. Robert is kinda cute. Lovely eyes.
