As Shark Tank continues to be Friday’s #1 TV series for its fourth season in a row, the Sharks look to keep the momentum going by investing over $100 million in deals during the course of this season. And yes, it’s really their money.

Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec, Daymond John and Kevin O’Leary will invest major coin to reinvigorate entrepreneurship in America.

After celebrating its third consecutive Emmy, win for 2016 Outstanding Structured Reality Program, ABC’s hit reality show Shark Tank, aims to keep things exciting and fresh.

During this eighth season, the show will have for the first time, six Sharks appear together on a panel, giving the entrepreneurs an even greater chance of investment. In addition, there will be a new show open as well as the return of tech investor Shark Chris Sacca.

Shark Tank’s exciting family appeal makes it a popular show and this season is being touted as the best yet. “The show attracts a wide range of ages,” Greiner notes. She was also quick to point out that many schools have implemented Shark Tank classes or projects. The show enables children to understand the structure of business and the importance of math.

“When those doors open, it’s absolutely real,” Herjavec says. With 40,000 people applying to be on the show, only 180 will make it onto the rug.

Corcoran, who knew the show would be a hit, lets on that there will be profiles on each Shark that won’t emphasize their wealth, but instead, their start. It’s so touching that there may even be a tear from Kevin O’Leary, aka Mr. Wonderful.

Mark Cuban, a Pittsburgh native, knows what it takes to create an empire with hard work and persistence. Cuban reveals, “I’ve learned the most after the deal is closed, that’s when the work starts.” Mark likes the positive message that the show sends out in this negative political climate and believes it’s needed more than ever. “The reason I do the show is that Shark Tank tells everybody the American dream is alive and well,” he confesses.

The Sharks bring their individual and ardent personalities to the tank, which viewers love. What is the worst advice to give a rejected entrepreneur? “Keep doing it and you’ll make it,” states the shrewd Mr. Wonderful.

Tune in to watch the Sharks single-handedly make America great again.
