Tonight on Shark Tank, guest shark Matt Higgins joined Daymond John, Mark Cuban, Kevin O'Leary, and Lori Greiner in the tank as four hopeful businesses — Tailgate 'N' Go, Myostorm, GolfKicks, Nerdit Now — tried to land a life-changing deal.
Read on for all of the highlights from Episode 5.
First up in the tank was a family from Colorado who introduced Tailgate 'N' Go, a portable outdoor kitchen and drybox for campers, hikers, and outdoorsmen. Seeking $250,000 for a 10% stake in their company, Taylor, Ron, and Kobe were eager to get a shark on board.The idea for the business came when the family went camping one year ago and found themselves without the basic essentials that a kitchen would offer. They decided to create their company when they returned home.
While Mark was impressed by the family's ability to create a useful product, he admitted he's not a fan of camping, so he went out fairly quickly. Lori agreed with Mark, saying she doesn't know about the outdoors space, before going out. Daymond, as well, wasn't interested in moving forward with the family. Matt, who is Vice Chairman of the Miami Dolphins and can easily speak to the sports community, wasn't certain that sports fans would be willing to change up their tailgate experience.
