Mark Cuban helps Diaper Dust founder with $75K deal, 'Shark Tank' fans call it a 'class act'
Mark Cuban has the reputation of being one of the harshest and most critical Sharks on 'Shark Tank'. The billionaire Shark never held back from expressing his views and observations on various pitches presented on the award-winning ABC show, whether they're positive or negative. So, when Mark displayed his gentle and kind side on the recently aired episode of 'Shark Tank', fans were pleasantly surprised.
Regina Crisci, a nurse by profession, entered the tank seeing $75,000 for a 40% stake in her brand Diaper Dust. Diaper Dust is a revolutionary way to tackle dirty diaper smells. Unfortunately, Crisci had only $3000 in sales, as she was juggling between her demanding job as a nurse at a Level 1 trauma center and working on Diaper Dust. Crisci was looking for a Shark's help in helping the product take off so that she could stop making it in her backyard, and move the operations to a factory. Even though Crisci displayed a lot of passion, grit, and determination to do whatever it took to make her brand a huge success, sadly it didn't stick with the Sharks. Lori Greiner, Barbara Corcoran, Kevin O'Leary, and even guest Shark Emma Grede were hesitant to invest in Diaper Dust as they felt that the brand was in its very early stages.
When the Sharks began grilling Crisci about the sales numbers and capital, she revealed that she owned a home and was ready to sell it to invest in her business. When Mark heard that he immediately advised her not to sell her home. But after all the other sharks said no, as Crisci was ready to leave the tank feeling dejected, Mark stepped in to save the day. He made an offer in the eleventh hour of investing the $75,000 she was seeking for the 40% stake she was willing to offer. Crisci immediately accepted his offer and was ecstatic about it.
Mark then explained that it was time for someone to help out Crisci, considering how she helps so many people on the daily basis as a nurse. When fans watched Mark's kind gesture, they began to praise him on Twitter. A fan tweeted, "I had no idea I was going to tear up watching #SharkTank tonight but here I am. 😢 @mcuban is a class act and incredible human. So excited for the future of 'Diaper Dust'.." Another fan wrote, "I did not see that coming from @mcuban #SharkTank." "That was 100% mensch #MarkCuban. Made me teary that you are being a mentor to the woman who takes care of so many. Major kudos. @ABCSharkTank #SharkTank," added a fan.
Another fan shared, "Wow! That was a beautiful ending to the #DiaperDust pitch! Congratulations on the partnership with @mcuban! That made us tear up a little, too! #SharkTank." "Mark Cuban is that dude. What a awesome offer #SharkTank," expressed a fan. "@mcuban @ABCSharkTank AMAZING!! Congrats!! That’s great! A deal with only $3K in sales!! I LOVE IT!! @TheSharkDaymond @LoriGreiner #SharkTank," commented a fan.
