BILLIONAIRE ENTREPRENEUR AND PHILANTHROPIST JOHN PAUL DEJORIA JOINS THE TANK AS GUEST SHARK IN THIS EPISODE

Shark Daymond John Proclaims One Pitch as "The Worst of All Time"

"Episode 501" - Two men from St. Louis have a line of safe, natural cleaning products - but will they clean up when it comes to a deal? A New Yorker inspired by cups at frat parties hopes for a $300,000 investment in his standard party cup with a hidden shot glass inside. An entrepreneur from Pleasanton, California has an electric, lightweight bodyboard which he claims could be the hottest new thing in water sports - will a Shark bite? And an entrepreneur from Arcadia, Florida, is pitching a tented root cover for newly planted trees that he claims will save farmers thousands of dollars in fuel and water. And the show updates viewers on last season's Teddy Needs a Bath - a product from Nicole Townsend of Huntington Beach, CA, that helps clean stuffed animals safely. Why does she now say, "'Shark Tank' made all of my dreams come true?" Find out on "Shark Tank," FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1 (9:00-10:01 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

The Sharks in this episode of "Shark Tank" are Mark Cuban, Lori Greiner, Daymond John, Robert Herjavec and Kevin O'Leary and Guest Shark John Paul DeJoria.

Guest Shark John Paul DeJoria is best known as co-founder of Paul Mitchell Hair Care and The Patr�n Spirits Company, and he has also found success in dozens of additional ventures spanning from conflict-free diamonds to hand-built yachts. DeJoria's rags-to-riches story exemplifies the American dream - once homeless, he struggled against the odds to achieve success, launching three global enterprises. With just $700 he started Paul Mitchell, the largest privately held salon hair care brand, and later turned a passion into success by co-founding Patr�n, the world's No. 1 ultra-premium tequila.

"Shark Tank" is broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format with stereo sound. This program carries a TV-PG parental guideline.
