ENTREPRENEUR: Shelton Wilder
ASKING FOR: $60k for a 20% stake
BEST PART OF THE PITCH: Shelton is bringing back the slip in a modern way with a simple, elegant, flirty design. She has two models in the tank to demonstrate all the different ways her product can come into play. Her Shemie is made for comfort. She has a verbal agreement with Nordstrom's. However, the sharks are confused by this entrepreneur's dealings with a company she was part of before. Shelton finally admits that she's been sober for two years and eight months. The company had a lot of bad memories for her. She didn't want to use the old name because she wanted a fresh start. Shelton has worked really hard to get back to a product she believes in so much.
DO THE SHARKS BITE? Kevin thinks Shelton's evaluation of her product is insane, so he's out. Lori thinks she can make it on her own without them. She's out. Robert thinks it is too early to invest, so he's out. Mark is not really into fashion, so he's out. Daymond loves Shelton's passion, but this is an area of fashion he doesn't know much about. He's out, too. It was an emotional journey inside the tank. No deals were made, but kudos must be given to Shelton for the comeback she's made not just with her business, but with her life.
