LIVE TWITTER CHAT WITH THE SHARKS FROM "SHARK TANK" SET TO TAKE PLACE ON FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24
Fans of ABC's hit reality show "Shark Tank" will be able to submit questions and receive real-time responses from Sharks Lori Greiner, a prolific inventor of retail products and often referred to as the "Queen of QVC," and venture capitalist Kevin O'Leary, who will both be up on Twitter from 7:30-8:00 p.m., ET at @LoriGreiner and @kevinolearytv, prior to the East Coast broadcast of the show on FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24. During the 30-minute Q&A, people will be able to ask Lori and Kevin questions that are geared toward their personal business, whether they are budding entrepreneurs or small business owners.
On "Shark Tank," the panel of Sharks hear pitches of the best business and product ideas from some of America's brightest entrepreneurs.
On Friday night's episode, "Episode 302," the Sharks tear into the business idea of a Phoenix, AZ man who wants them to invest in a watch he claims provides health benefits. Also, a stay-at-home mom from Gilbert, AZ could lose her gourmet pretzel business if she leaves the Tank without an investor; a man from Bozeman, MT with a no-tools-required furniture system hopes he can assemble a deal; and an inventor from Fullerton, CA has a small but powerful idea for an eyeglass holder that could make him a millionaire. Also, Johnson Barley from Broken Arrow, OK, whose Original Man Candle did not spark a deal with the Sharks in Season Two, talks about his business since his appearance. This episode will air FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 24 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
In addition to Greiner and O'Leary, the Sharks of "Shark Tank" are billionaire Mark Cuban, owner and chairman of HDNet and outspoken owner of the 2011 NBA championship Dallas Mavericks, real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran, technology innovator Robert Herjavec, and fashion and branding expert Daymond John.
