"Episode 115" - Having borrowed hundreds of thousands of dollars from her brother, a former military housewife from Yellow Springs, Ohio refuses to give up on her business to spruce up old appliances. A once-profitable entrepreneur from Chicago, who claims to have made close to one million dollars with his line of mint holders clipped onto keychains, hopes the Sharks will dig him out of his deep financial hole. The Sharks are intrigued with the marketing potential of a unique lighted decal invention offered by a duo from Hinsdale, Illinois. And a feisty, single mom from Fisher, Indiana believes her aromatic lip gloss can make women look and feel beautiful, but the Sharks are wary about some of her claims.
