"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.
