Eh.
1 August 2014 | by (Nyack, NY) – See all my reviews

Pretty obvious this is a spin-off of Shark Tank. Love the concept of the show, period. However, I don't start to enjoy until after they have made their choice. Joe is a bit too pretentious for my liking during the face- off. Sure he's up front and honest (similar to Kevin in the shark tank), but seems to try to hard to be...well an ass-hole. There really is no reason for it. These individuals are obviously credible and hard working since they are standing there in the first place. Unacceptable to bash these individuals when they try to "sell their work." "Well lets get to the food." Meanwhile, they are still giving their pitch. Rude much? The sharks are rude too at points, but their entire attitude and timing behind it works. Joe just makes it plain awkward.
