Shark Tank is a reality series which gives aspiring entrepreneurs the chance to present their business ideas to a panel of “Shark” investors, who will either choose to invest or not. The panel of “Sharks” is made up of some of the most successful businessmen and women in North America who are capable of taking these start-up businesses to another level. The show is part of a franchise that originated from Japan’s version Tigers of Money and the Canadian version, Dragon’s Den. Now onto the eighth season, Shark Tank has won two Emmy Awards and has become the most watched Friday night program on television. Here’s an interesting look at how much the cast is worth!
