15 Best-Selling ‘Shark Tank’ Products

15 Best-Selling 'Shark Tank' Products

The reality show “Shark Tank,” which has won multiple Emmy Awards for its efforts in reinvigorating American entrepreneurship, is returning to ABC this fall for its 10th season.

In the show, contestants must convince the “sharks” to invest their own cash into the projects they dream of turning into profitable businesses. In return, the sharks get to watch their investments pay potentially huge dividends, and to own a part of the next big thing. Recently, the show hit $100 million in deals that its sharks have offered to entrepreneurs.

Keep reading if you’re a fan of the show and curious about what resulted from some of the more successful “Shark Tank” pitches.
