Edginess of Ashton Kutcher on SHARK TANK Season 7 Premiere

ABC’s business reality show, “Shark Tank” where entrepreneurs bring their businesses in front of big wig- investors with hopes of sealing a deal with them in order to grow their companies to the earning power of, sometimes, millions.

“I smell the death of your deal” – Kevin O’Leary

Produced by Mark Burnett (The Voice), “Shark Tank” opens season 7 with a new twist, they’ve added “cutting-edge Sharks” to join the veteran Sharks: Lori Greiner, Mark Cuban, Daymond John (absent in premiere episode), Barbara Corcoran, and Robert Herjavec.

These cutting-edge sharks include: Chris Sacca, a Silicon Valley venture investor, Troy Carter from the music world who’s a music manager and founder and CEO of Atom Factory, and venture capitalist Ashton Kutcher who sits-in on the premiere episode and at one point, looses it on Mr. Wonderful (Kevin O’Leary), who, isn’t so wonderful. All of the guest Sharks this season will give their own business-savvy advice and input, and perhaps even close a deal or two themselves.

THE BEEBO

Shark Tank, s07ep01, Beebo

Owner: Martin Hill

It’s a baby product that helps parents and babies to better feed. The product’s catchphrase is “Multi task while you feed.” When Lori asked him how he came-up with the name “Beebo”, Martin replied that he originally called it “booby!” But, his wife wasn’t having it. Hence the name change – “Beebo”.

Memorable Quotes From the Sharks:

“I’m pretty sure my baby is NOT an on-camera baby.” – Ashton Kutcher

“In my baby feeding days, I really had a lot of trouble with the whole deal, with the bottle.” – Mr. Wonderful

ACTON

Shark Tank, s07ep01, Acton

Owner: Peter Treadway

His customers are college students and younger. His product is roller-type skates, which were difficult for Robert to skate on. The price of the skates are on the upper side of $300! Ouch! Lori wrapped it up best by saying she didn’t think that Peter is “really dying for a deal” with the Sharks. He seemed to be lacking in preparation and was way too confident.

Memorable Quotes From the Sharks:

“How long do you think it’s going to take for someone to get proficient where they don’t need to be held-up and look like they’re on the way to a retirement home?” – Mr. Wonderful

“It’s a pretty accurate answer” – Peter Treadway to Mark Cuban

“It doesn’t make me feel as wonderful as I know I really am” – Mr. Wonderful

“If your price is right, you may be in” – Ashton to Kevin O’Leary

“You’re dead to me, skate out of here!” – Kevin O’Leary
