Face Blok Ahead of Its Time?
New York Magazine discovered the Face Blok deal from Season One in re-runs and finds that, in light of the pandemic we've all been living through, perhaps it's more relevant than ever. Entitled "Shark Tank Contestant Who Pitched Face Masks in 2009 Has No Regrets", the article discovers that Irina Blok, the entrepreneur behind Face Blok, was actually the original designer of the Android logo!
It's not often we go back and add a deal because it's in the news, this isn't exactly a current affairs site, but in this case, it seemed strangely important to do so. We hope you find it interesting.
Season 12 Officially Announced
Season 11 - In The Books!
Green means that shark spent or appeared more in Season Eleven over Season Ten while red means they spent or appeared less. The only guest shark included in the more vs. less calculations is Rohan because last season he was in only two episodes and this season was in five making his numbers actually significant! Robert and Daymond, meanwhile, basically just switched places from last season.
Mark and Lori also both appeared in one more episode than the previous season but that's because they have perfect attendance and have been in every episode in both seasons making their appearance records... statistically unchanged.
We're looking forward to running more numbers like this as we crunch the data!

What is Stats For Sharks? Stats For Sharks is a data visualization project based on the popular ABC television show Shark Tank. Statistics for each deal on every episode of every season have been collected and organized into a database that we use to display charts that might reveal information never before realized about what happens on the show.
What deals are outside the norm? How far outside are they? Stats For Sharks hopes to illuminate these questions by revealing data on each deal made within the context of the deal's season, category, and shark.
Stats For Sharks is not trying to provide hints as to which deals are most likely. Certain patterns have been revealed with over nine seasons on the books but, as with any investment, the investor makes decisions on a variety of factors that may not be (and probably isn't) represented here. Future participants on the show should not use the data here as a guide for making a deal.
Stats For Sharks is in no way associated with ABC, the producers, any companies mentioned, or any of the sharks. However, we are totally willing to sell out. Please contact us if you're interested.
