Washed Up Hollywood Belts Update | Shark Tank Season 1

Danon Beres, the son of a famous belt-maker, is following in his father’s footsteps on Shark Tank Season 1. He too makes fashionable belts and buckles, but at more affordable prices. Will his company earn him a deal on Shark Tank Season 1? Find out in our Washed Up Hollywood update! 

Shark Tank Washed Up Hollywood Update

Washed Up Hollywood Update

  • Entrepreneur: Danon Beres
  • Business: Belts and belt buckles
  • Ask: $500,000 for 25% equity
  • Result: No deal
  • Shark: None

Danon entered Shark Tank Season 1 accompanied by two glamorous models ready to present his products. He introduced Washed Up Hollywood as a fashionable line of belts and buckles designed for the elite, but kept within an affordable price range.

Danon talked about how he learned the ropes of the industry following the tutelage of his father, and was now ready to break out on his own.

The sharks asked about numbers, and Danon said the belts retailed between $55 and $99. They cost around $40 to make.

At the time of filming, he’d had sales of $435,000 with a profit of $50,000. He was confident in his valuation of $2 million, but the sharks strongly disagreed with it.

Ultimately Robert Herjavec, Kevin Harrington, Barbara Corcoran, Kevin O’Leary, and Daymond John all went out due to the valuation that Danon gave the sharks. Without an offer, he was forced to leave Shark Tank Season 1 without a deal.

What happened next for his company? Keep reading our Washed Up Hollywood update to find out! 

We have sad news to share in our Washed Up Hollywood update. While it flourished as a niche company for a while after airing, but has since gone out of business.

However, in our Washed Up Hollywood update research, we did find that Danon still sells some belts on his eBay store.
