Shark Tank Christmas Special
Tuesday 12-04-2012 - Week 12
The Shark Tank Holiday Special episode marks the half way point for the entire season 4 with 24 total episodes. Yes, this is episode 409 that they skipped a few weeks ago, but it is the number 12 in consecutive weeks for season 4. Confused? Me too, they seem to do this every season with no rhyme or reason why they just can't keep them in order. Either way, It's Christmas time and the Sharks will be ready to make a few dreams come true.
Rent A Live Christmas Tree - Scotty "Claus" Martin from Torrance, CA. runs a living Christmas Tree Rental Farm. I remember the first time I heard of such a business on the news, and thought, now that's a Great Idea.
Instead of buying your Christmas Tree that you use for only a few weeks (before the needles start falling off) and then throw it away after the Holiday's, you basically recycle your living tree and then reserve it for next Christmas. The live tree is delivered to your door and placed in a preferred location (next to a window) to help the tree survive while serving it's purpose. After the Holiday's, a crew will come by and take the Christmas Tree back to the farm thus eliminating a big after Christmas chore. You can even reserve it for next Christmas, and make "your tree" a part of your Family's Christmas tradition while watching it grow along with your family.
Fat Ass Fudge - Mm, a Holiday treat that always has a place for the Holiday's. Donna McCue from East Hampton, NY is taking her fudge to the Sharks and looking for an investment to expand her tasty creation. The fudge is gluten free, but it's not glutton free. O.K., I guess we will all know the difference after the show.
Partie Poche Cell Phone Holder - Two college student's Connor Pastoor and Jillian Jaccard from Santa Monica, CA have created a new fashion accessory that helps hold your cell phone on your leg. According to the Shark Tank Press Release the students have some more to learn before they are ready to do business with the Sharks.
The Coop Party Place - Two moms from Los Angeles, CA are looking for a franchise opportunity to take their company to the masses. A kid's indoor/outdoor party space that's guaranteed to be a hit at any party. This time of the year I wonder if they have a party space for bigger kids looking to put their Christmas party over the top. Hm, now there's a good idea.
Chord Buddy Update - Travis Perry, the inventor of a training tool to help you learn to play a guitar, is coming back to the Shark Tank Show from season 3. This really is a neat invention and a great Christmas Gift for any aspiring musician. It looks like singer John Rich, formerly of the LoneStar Band and currently with "Big and Rich" will be surprising Perry with an early Christmas present. The Chord Buddy is already on the front page of the John Rich website which he is now proudly endorsing.
T-Mobile - It's now safe to say that somehow, some way they will get another plug in for T-Mobile. Yes, I get it, they are a big sponsor of the show and deserve their few seconds of air time. What I don't get is why make it so obvious? Should I dare say, even staged?
If you really want to get my attention then why not get the T-Mobile Girl Carly Foulkes to come on the show. Now that would make a positive impression that I wouldn't soon forget even if the Sharks were faking, eer I mean acting.
This episode will also be a big test for the Shark Tank Show to see how well they do in the ratings compared to their normal Friday night showing. The Shark Tank continues to break new records even though Friday nights are not exactly the best time for any Hit T.V. Show. Good ratings tonight will solidify they indeed have a Hit on their hands which should (hopefully) lead to many more seasons of my favorite show and maybe a more preferred time slot.
So Don't Forget to mark your calendar for the Shark Tank Christmas Special Tuesday, December 4, 2012 starting at 8p.m. Eastern on ABC.
