Meet the series’ sharks
With a new season, the long-standing sharks, too, return. Barbara Corcoran, Mark Cuban, Lori Greiner, Daymond John, Robert Herjavec, Daniel Lubetzky, and Kevin O’Leary are the self-made multi-millionaire and billionaire business tycoons who will invest in people’s dream projects/businesses. They decide who will get a chance to build a business and become millionaires.
Shark Tank Season 13 has invited four guest sharks, and they are Kevin Hart (actor, entrepreneur, investor), Emma Grede (Good American CEO), Peter Jones (original Dragon standing on the BBC’s Dragons’ Den), and Nirav Tolia (Nextdoor co-founder).
Sharing his reasons for joining Shark Tank, Hart said:
“When you talk about us as Black men, we don’t get the world of business and money taught to us. It’s something that has to be figured out. It’s not in our public school systems. It’s not in our neighborhoods. Financial education just isn’t given to us. I feel like it’s our job to go back and inform, and that’s what I’m trying to do.”
Meanwhile, fans are eagerly waiting for the reality show, and the new addition to the guest list has made them super excited.
Produced by MGM Television and Sony Pictures Television, the Emmy-winning show is based on the format of the Japanese show Dragon Den.
