Shark Tank episode 818 is a milestone episode. During this show, the Sharks will surpass over $100 million in investments. It's such a big deal, the episode of 20/20 that follows is dedicated to a look back at the show's memorable moments. The 20/20 special, entitled Shark Tank: The Road to $100 Million, looks at the Shark's favorite moments, some made in America products, the biggest successes and failures, “kidtrepreneurs,” and behind the scenes footage of the Sharks in action.
As always, 4 new entrepreneurs present their businesses to the wealthy panelists, hoping for a cash infusion and “the Shark Tank Effect.” Episode 818 features millennial entrepreneurs – one of whom will be the business that breaks the $100 million threshold. James Brooks and Nathan Coleman show the Sharks Elephant Pants, their business that donates to elephant welfare with each sale of their comfy cotton harem pants with Thai inspired designs. Will Smelko and Ron Chang pitch Ora Organic, their line of GMO-free, sustainable, organic nutritional supplements they extract from fruits and vegetables. Bruno Aschimanini, Steven Ford, and Brandon Leibel pitch SandCloud, their beach lifestyle brand featuring plush beach towels with pillow inserts. Abby Speicher pitches DartDrones, her “school” for educating commercial drone pilots with in-person and online training, test prep, and entrepreneurial guidance.
Which business goes over the $100 million line?
Daymond invested $200K for 17.5% of Bombas in season six. The sock company with a social conscience (they donate a pair of socks to homeless shelters for every pair sold), was featured in an update segment in season seven and in an episode of Beyond the Tank. We'll see what they're doing now.
There are 28 Shark Tank Episodes for Season 8. This season features more appearances by Chris Sacca and a host of other surprises. Casting is currently closed, but it never hurts to get a head start on season nine! If you would like to appear on the show, check out our Auditions and Casting information.
Episode 818 – The Shark Investors and Entrepreneurs
The Shark Tank Episode 818 entrepreneurs will make their best pitch to the panel of five Shark investors who will use their own money if they choose to invest. The Shark Investors negotiate on the spot without any previous information, which differs from typical negotiations between venture capital investors and entrepreneurial start-ups.
Companies pitching the Shark Investors must go through a rigorous due diligence process before an on-air deal is completed. Shark Tank Blog follow ups help you keep track of the companies that end up successful and the ones that don't complete their deal.
