Not a hoax. Uncle Kevin and Robert have gone Hollywood.

I wonder if the Dragons get paid by the CBC?and if so how much?

Not surprised, Dragons Den isn't good enough for them now but I'm sure they are still getting paid for the idea

Kevin O'leary and Bruce Croxton (sp?) were replaced.

So now there are 2 food guru's? Vij and Treliving? I'm calling Treliving to leave next..

I've been watching a lot more shark tank these days opposed to dragons den anyways. I'm sure they have a much better deal with shark tank. I just noticed Kevin O' Leary isn't on the Lang and O' Leary exchange anymore
Originally it was a Japanese show.

i don't really prefer either show because i was expecting to see great ideas or risky ideas with these "dragons" taking a risk on investing in these companies

instead we see these "dragons" or "sharks" not take risks and only move in on "sure things" and they don't invest they basically takeover these companies

and a lot of these businessmen aren't bringing ideas they're simply selling non-unique products from china

you rarely get a good show, even the bbc one is lame :/

Shark Tank > Dragons Den

I hate it when Dragon Den has an absurdly terrible pitch.
I remember an old lady asking for morney to build a stadium built out of straw to hold indoor motor races.
What a waste of everyones time.

I find Shark Tank too "American". For some reason American's can't watch TV without there being human interest. Like everyone has to have a sob story or something. I find that all incredibly annoying and it definitely affects certain Sharks on the show.

That's why I'm a big fan of Kevin O'Leary. He tells it like it is and the only thing that matters is the money. Take the emotion out of the equation and all that's left is business. Learn a lot about investment and making money just from his philosophy on the show. Hey, he's the only one on the panel that's made a billion dollar deal. A $4 billion dollar deal, actually.

Problem is...no one wants to work for him because they see him as an asshole.

not bad ideas just risky ones or ones that wont see returns for a few years

after all if you're a "dragon" as they like to pretend to be then taking some risks shouldn't be a concern especially with the dollar amount these guys are asking for being so low

my cousin and i are hoping for a Sheikhs Den where we can see some real wealthy people throw money at ideas instead of trying to takeover ideas with loans like these dragons do "i'll give you $100k....for 51% of your company and I want all profits to go to repaying me for the $100k"

No, his problem is he has the same offer every time and everyone sees through it.

"Keep your equity, how about I give you a LOAN and take a 10% royalty until I get my money back then it goes down to 5% in perpetuity."

Must have worked a couple times and he's raking it in, but most times he's overly greedy and not trying to be a valuable partner. Just trying to bend over naive entrepreneurs.

That said, he is a funny guy and will be missed on the show.

Here is an investment that meets your objectives:
- risky
- "not a sure thing"
- is looking for a partner
- unique product (some would argue)

That's the BEST part of Dragon's Den. They actually show stupid pitches for entertainment. I always watch Dragon's Den fail videos on YouTube.
