It begins as a typical fast-paced episode of America's favorite Friday night viewing, but by the end of the hour, it's a take-no-prisoners battle of the men versus the women who will prevail with a deal? Barbara Corcoran and Lori Greiner team up to battle it out against Robert Herjavec, Mark Cuban and Kevin O'Leary over a particularly enticing product. An entrepreneur from Louisville, KY has whimsical plush slippers he claims feels like pillows on your feet; inventors from Sacramento, CA show off their dynamic signage for business owners who don't want to hire human sign holders; two women from Macon, GA have created trousers and leggings that give instant, built-in uplift to one's derriere; a Dallas-based foodie wants to make his mark with his boldly-flavored line of nuts for snacking, and an update on CordaRoys, a line of beanbag furniture that has skyrocketed in sales since Lori Greiner invested last season.
