Shark Tank season 1 episode 11 introduces a husband and wife team from Glen Allen, Virginia trying to sell their successful child-care business. But when asked what the actual value of the company is, the air of pleasantry turns to tension. Next into the Tank is a chef from Folson, California, trying to get an investment for her delicious salad mix. Most of the Sharks are concerned about investing, however, when she reveals that she had to pull the product off the shelves. A man from Philadelphia pitches a three-dimensional helmet, to which he has the patent. Next, a man from Franklin, Tennessee learns that you need to come prepared when pitching a product to the Sharks and a man from New Jersey hopes that the Sharks will invest into his golf ball cleaner.
