Shark Tank is premiering its new season tonight at 8/7c with fresh blood in the water! Entrepreneur, Blake Mycoskie, is the first guest shark scheduled to appear for the new season.
Since 2009, the ABC reality series has allowed budding entrepreneurs the chance to pitch company deals to big name celebrity investors. These business hopefuls enter the "shark tank" and in hopes to catch the attention of "sharks" Lori Greiner, Kevin O'Leary, Mark Cuban, Robert Herjavec, and Barbara Corcoran.
This season, which was filmed in Vegas with strict social distancing, will feature a few "guest sharks."
Founder of the company Toms Shoes, Blake Mycoskie, is kicking off the season as a guest on the show.

Mycoskie told us what it takes to make a business thrive during these difficult times.
"I think there's a lot of businesses out there... a lot of great ideas. But, you're personally connected to the why...it's very hard to make it work. And, I think in this day in age businesses [you know] like Toms and like Madefor...the reason those have been successful is because people really believe in the why."
He went on to say the season will be a really competitive one as he was surprised to see how quickly things heat up.
"I thought I was kinda just on there to be the guest shark and add some new color to the show. You know, starting with like the first pitch we got really heated pretty quick."
