In a shocking first for the long-running reality TV series “Shark Tank,” shark Barbara Corcoran has exchanged $14 for 100% equity in what reports are calling a “tasty” meatball sub.
Though fellow entrepreneurs Mark Cuban and Lori Greiner went in together on an offer to split the sub for $18, Corcoran sweetened the deal by agreeing to take the banana peppers off the sandwich and highlighting her previous experience with both veggie and Italian subs.
“I love the product but I needed an answer to my offer right away. I’m hungry,” said Kevin O’Leary aka “Mr. Wonderful.” “For that reason, I’m out.”
The product was pitched by a young entrepreneur who some sources are describing as a “Subway delivery guy who got lost in the studio.”
“He knew a lot about his business. He had all the numbers down,” said Greiner of the guest.
Cuban allegedly asked to see the company’s research, to which he was handed a take-out menu in response.
At press time, a “where are they now” segment was highlighting Barbara and her sandwich, which she ate in her car after shooting wrapped for the day.
