Jennifer and Gifford came to
Mark Cuban wasn’t interested in all the work this would take and dropped out. Kevin O’Leary offered $300,000 for 20%, and felt he could be the “nasty” friend they needed.
Guest shark, Sara Blakely, felt they could do this themselves and didn’t want to dilute the owner’s shares. Because of this, she dropped out. Daymond John liked the product and matched Kevin’s offer of $300,000 for 25%.
Lori Greiner offered $300,000 for 25% of the company. Gifford counted any shark at $300,000 for 10%. No one took this and Gifford recounted with $300,000 for 15%. Kevin cut off Daymond and took this deal with the Briggs couple. Now, let’s take a look at our DrainWigupdate.
DrainWig is still available on Amazon and its website, as well as Bed Bath and Beyond and Wal-Mart. They have added a few different styles in addition to the original flowers and have changed the design of the tub DrainWig since appearing on the show.
During our DraingWig update research, we found that the Briggsare out of their awful deal and are making decent profits off of their product. Kevin O’Leary has held up his end of the deal and endorsed the product by showing photos of him when he had hair!
