The only thing they did right with the Live episode - made it feel like a real infomercial

Haha. Lots of hate. It was pretty bad and I'm not surprised by the responses.

It was fun to see something new. But it isn't meant to be live. Once was enough.

Was the actual broadcast live? Or just taped with live audience? If so, they really had to change things, as the normal pitches last 45-or-so minutes.

With the underwear and baby booger polling during commercial breaks, we should assume it was live.

Yeah, that was a clusterf**k. Sharks talking over top of one another, the audience chanting, the people being rushed to make a deal. My guess is they brought in three products whose sales numbers were good enough that they knew the sharks would make a deal with them...they didn't want their "stars" being booed out by the audience.

Just saw the ďCabinetĒ reusable glass medicine bottle.

I donít understand how they can refill the glass bottle with (different?) medicine each time, but the pill instructions arenít on the bottle. Yes, I see the paper boxes or packages, but once the outer packaging and glass bottle are separated, the consumer might mix up the medicine - which is dangerous.

I hadn't watched Shark Tank for five years and Gwyneth Paltrow's guest appearance as a new Shark got me for one episode. I didn't see anything in the episode which would draw me back. It's the same tired formula they ran into the ground around 7-8 years ago. Felt like everything was on auto-pilot. They badly need to change the entire Shark line-up at once or do a spin-off with different people.

I can't remember the last time there was a product on this show that I'd be the least bit interested in buying.

this show needs more gadgets and less food items and idiotic useless services.

It's funny how Mark is always the first to call out snake oil pitches but has no problems with Gwyneth Paltrow joining as a shark.

Wait, you mean to tell me vagina stones are not scientifically proven to do anything?

The product to help dispose of cooking oil was a good one. I work at a utility, and fats, oils and grease getting dumped down the drain can be a really big problem, especially during the holidays. Actually, that lady should work closely with utilities. It could make a good promotional giveaway.

It looked good, but I air fry everything now if I am frying.

And I tend to think folks who are deep frying a lot probably don't care much about waste.

Episode 14.18 - The Ice Cream Canteen

ohhh, thatís something I might end up buying one day. But not at the $44.99 price point for the small size (I assume there are multiple sizes).

I wouldnít necessarily bring it on trips, but I can see it useful at birthday parties where Iím serving ice cream. Instead of serving ice cream and asking if anyone wants anymore before I put it back in the freezer, I can see this product being helpful with keeping the ice cream at the dessert table. Because once I put it back in the fridge, guests donít bother getting more ice cream. Everyone forgets about it.

Season 15 just began so he won't be gone until the season 16 ends in spring of 2025. There's still many many times to hear him say "for those reasons, I'm out."

I hope they specifically bring on at least one more wellness product that he can immediately call a fraud and be out before the pitch even begins.

Yet he has no problem sitting next to Gwyneth Paltrow who sells tons of that stuff.

If I had to guess, I'd assume Cuban despises her and everything she does that isn't acting related.
