    Love Shark Tank, as well- but I love it more when both ladies are on. We’ve had a couple of heated moments with them. :)

    I love Shark Tank, too, but I’m noticing a trend. It used to seem like the “Sharks” were greedy, but most of the deals would really help out the entrepreneurs as well. Lately it just seems like the “Sharks” are just really, really greedy.

    I keep waiting for one of them to make an offer demanding 70% and the entrepreneur’s pants. Or did I miss that episode?

    I haven’t watched lately, but check out the season one episodes. The sharks were VERY greedy back then, asking for 85-90 of the company a few times. I remember it getting better season two and seemed fine through last season. Perhaps they just got greedy again this season?

    Sharks are not greedy, People for past seasons screwed them over and left with their money, They are being more careful now. it’s really their money!
