Shark Tank's First Full Season
|Original Shark Tank Sharks from Season 1|
With the success of the Dragons Den already shown in Canada, the first two Sharks Kevin O'Leary and Robert Herjevic, were also hired to get this new show off the ground. Season 2 was even a little bumpier with talk that they might even cancel the Shark Tank altogether.
But the show really started to catch on in season 3 and by season 4, it is now the # 1 rated T.V. Show on Friday Night Prime Time.
As with all successful T.V. Shows, it all comes back to when it first began and which makes each and every contestant from season 1 True Stars in their own right for paving the way.
Below is a list of all 15 episodes that were Featured in Season 1. How successful are these companies now? Are they even still in business or have they gone on to become multi-millionaires?
