Mark Cuban, Daymond John, and Barbara Corcoran are some of the members of the “Shark Tank” panel.
Shark Tank has become one of the most popular reality shows today. Ahead of its new season premiere, the “Sharks” themselves sat down for an interview to reveal their respective “prospects” about their co-stars.
Mark Cuban named Barbara Corcoran as his ideal business partner when starting a new company, according to Cheat Sheet. While Daymond John also picked the founder of The Corcoran Group, it was for a different category. As for Corcoran, she mentioned the names of Cuban and Robert Herjavec. But why did they pick their co-stars, and for what purpose?
Mark Cuban when starting a new business
Mark Cuban sat down for an interview with Men’s Health earlier in September. He received tons of questions about his businesses, as well as his secrets to financial wellness.
When asked about which of his co-Sharks he would want as a partner in starting a business from scratch, he named Barbara Corcoran. He explained that the real estate mogul “complements” his skill set.
The NBA team owner added that Corcoran has “amazing people skills.” She has “patience” when it comes to training them, and “supports” them much greater than he does, Cuban said.
Daymond John in winning over the Sharks
Daymond John is one of the main panelists throughout the whole run of Shark Tank on ABC. In his recent interview, he named Barbara Corcoran as the “toughest” Shark to win over on the show.
He said that it is difficult to impress the American businesswoman. She seemingly trusts and goes more with her gut.
Corcoran, however, defended herself. She noted that all the panelists on the show “invest” using their own money. Hence, she needs to be very “selective.”
Barbara Corcoran in quarantining with her co-Sharks
Speaking to Access Hollywood in April, Barbara Corcoran revealed that she would spend the lockdown with Mark Cuban. She joked that he would fall on Cuban’s billions and likely “love him” most of all.
On the other hand, she would not want to quarantine with Robert Herjavec. She stated that the Canadian businessman would drive her “nuts,” adding that he never shuts up. Undoubtedly, “I would become an alcoholic,” Corcoran said.
The richest Shark in “Shark Tank”
Investopedia reported earlier this year that Mark Cuban has the highest net worth among all the “Sharks.” He is the richest “by an order of magnitude” due to his over AU$6 billion worth. Next to him is the “Mr. Wonderful,” Kevin O’Leary, with $400 million.
Daymond John and Barbara Corcoran place at third and sixth spots with their $300 million and $80 million net worth, respectively. As for Robert Herjavec, who is also one of the main Sharks on Shark Tank, his net worth is now at $200 million.
