Pop It Pal Pimple Popping Simulator Update | Shark Tank Season 10

Husband and wife duo, Summer and Bill Pierce, along with cousin Kayla Roof, pitched their skin product during Shark Tank Season 10. Pop It Pal is actually a pimple-popping simulation toy, and apparently it’s popular. That’s because they came to the tank worth $2.5 million. However, will they manage to convince a shark to invest? Find out in our Pop It Pal update!

If you’re short on time, here’s a quick overview of what happened to Pop It Pal after Shark Tank!

Summer and Bill Pierce appeared on Shark Tank Season 10, and ultimately made a deal with Kevin O’Leary for $250,000 for 5% equity. The deal also included a royalty of $1.50 per unit, until $750,000 is paid back. In terms of a Pop It Pal update, the company is still in business, with a net worth of $10 million!

Bill, Summer and Kayla, begin their pitch explaining that millions of people love to pop their pimples, and say it’s even trending online. However, there are serious side effect risks to doing this, so that’s why they created the pimple popping simulator, Pop It Pal.

The OFFICIAL Pop it Pal, featured on Shark Tank Season 10, is made of skin safe silicone with an all natural pus that simulates the popping of a huge pimple!

Pop It Pal is basically a rubbery stress toy, with a grid of holes in it, filled with fake pus. The creators say that it helps to relieve stress, by simply squeezing the Pop It Pal, and releasing the pus.

The company also sells tubes of pus, so that the toy is refillable. Guest shark Bethenny Frankel asks the entrepreneurs how they came up with this idea.

Summer shares that her and Bill love watching pimple popping videos online. So, naturally, when they were trying to come up with a business to start, this seemed like a great idea.

The sharks were stunned to hear that Pop It Pal had generated more than $300,000 in gross revenue in the last four months. Margins weren’t very good however.

Esepecially since a unit would sell at $20 and would be produced for just about half that amount. The three entrepreneurs admitted that their biggest problem was managing their demand, and also reducing manufacturing costs.

At this point, Kevin O’Leary expressed similar concerns, although he was not quite ready to drop out of negotiations.

Up to this point in the pitch and negotiations, all sharks were still in. Kevin was the first to make an offer and, of course, it would be one of his interesting royalty deals.

Bethenny spoke up to say that she’s not into investing in the novelty-gag market. So for this reason, she is out.

Meanwhile, Kevin’s decides to offer $250,000 for $1.50 in royalty per unit, until he received three times his initial investment back. He also wanted 5% equity of the business as a whole.

Guest shark Rohan Oza says he isn’t into the whole pimple popping thing, so he’s out.

Lori Greiner goes out next, essentially starting that the concept grosses her out.

Although Mark Cuban decided to make an offer of $250,000 for 25% equity.

With two offers on the table, the three entrepreneurs took a few minutes to decide on what to do. In the end, they ultimately turned down Mark’s offer, and in stead accepted Mr. Wonderful’s deal.

Did their decision pay off following Shark Tank? Keep reading our Pop It Pal update to find out!
