We enjoy watching Shark Tank, but you know what sucks about it? Guest sharks. It's as if the six rotating regulars are not good enough, every few weeks they bring a random one in... and most of them are absolutely terrible.
Betheny Frankel is the worst. Somehow the reality TV "star" was deemed a shark... because she's been on Real Housewives? Can you imagine walking into Shark Tank thinking you'll get a deal with Mark or Lori, but ending up with freaking Bethany?
Then there is a slew of former athletes: Alex Rodriguez, Maria Sharapova, Charles Barkley... Sure, we get it, Charles Barkley was a great basketball player, and star of one of the best sports commercials of all time ("I'm not a role model." Look it up, kids.), so if you want him to be the face of your athletic-related brand, sure, go ahead. But otherwise?
