ENTREPRENEUR: Todd Miller
ASKING FOR: $100k for a 10% stake
BEST PART OF THE PITCH: Todd is a licensed massage therapist who believes it makes more sense to give rubdown with one's feet. He has a handrail system that lets him stand on pressure points that allows him to apply more pounds per square inch. Barbara volunteers for a massage that leaves her feeling great. Todd has 30 certified body walkers at his disposal that he's accumulated over seven years.
DO THE SHARKS BITE? Mark wants to know where Todd's passion lies since he's a triathlete who trains a lot. He wants to invest in someone whose sole focus is the company. He doesn't see that in Todd. He's out. Barbara loved the massage, but she doesn't see this as unique in any way. She's out. Daymond and Robert follow her lead. Kevin doesn't see anything proprietary with this model. He also doesn't see any way he can make money from this. Todd is a dead man walking to him. Todd's Bodywalking pitch just doesn't rub the sharks the right way.
