Tyler Jay saw an opportunity while making bath bombs, an opportunity to make public bathrooms everywhere smell better. Plop Star’s poop tablets are an alternative to toilet sprays, as they are more convenient and won’t leak. Do the sharks think this is a worthy investment during the Season 11 pitch? Find out in our Plop Star update.
Shark Tank Plop Star Update
- Entrepreneur: Tyler Jay
- Business: Toilet odor eliminator tablets
- Ask: $150,000 for 10% equity
- Result: No deal
- Shark: None
Tyler Jay is seeking to break into the market defined by bathroom sprays and other products. His Plop Star poop tablet, created from the same process that makes bath bombs, is a more convenient take on the heavy, leaky spray bottles of his competitors.
Unfortunately, he had a hard time pitching the product to the sharks. Though it smells nice, there’s nothing that really sets this company apart from some of the giants in the same market.
Mark Cuban was out immediately because he didn’t like the concept. Kevin O’Leary had an issue with the valuation, especially after hearing that Plop Star had only $12,000 in sales and seemed to be taking on the process backward. He hadn’t tested the market, and this was a sticking point with Kevin.
Barbara Corcoran agreed, stating that she didn’t think there was a demand. No one seemed to be buying Plop Star, no matter how great of an idea it was. Both Barbara and Kevin went out, and Lori Greiner followed shortly.
Guest shark Rohan Oza didn’t think Tyler had an action plan. Tyler wasn’t really trying to optimize and didn’t know how to market. Due to this, he went out as well.
With that, all sharks are out. Tyler Jay walked away without an investment. But how did he do afterward? Find out in our Plop Star update.
At the time of writing, it’s unclear if Plop Star is still in business. Plop Star is sold out on Amazon and the company website, and the social media pages are not active anymore. For our Plop Star review, we read some reviews on Amazon – and they are mixed. Some say they work but are impossible to get, while others are upset at the price hike.
Tyler has continually upped the price of the product, taking it from $15 all the way up to $70, and many consumers don’t think that’s worth it. Since it’s still a one-man company, there are no updated revenue numbers.
