When it comes to 'Shark Tank' fans most certainly have a favourite shark. With each of the expertise laid out on the table, it's easy to see what they would bring to each business and allow fans to guess who might take the bait and grab a deal. However, while Mark Cuban has been a fixture on the show since Season 1, fans have noticed that a usually eager Mark Cuban hasn't been closing deals as he normally would on Season 13.

Episode 7 saw Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Kevin O'Leary, Lori Greiner or guest shark Daniel Lubetzky as a part of the panel, and Cuban was surprisingly silent the entire time.

In Episode 7, he was quick to back out of all the deals, refusing to make any offers even though brands like Zach & Zoe Sweet Bee Farm and Pink Picasso had sharks fighting among themselves to bag a deal. 

Fans took to Twitter to address the shark's sudden silence. "Does #markcuban make a deal on Shark Tank? He is always out  #sharktank" tweeted a fan. "Hey! #Sharktank great job but has Mark Cuban done a deal in the last several weeks?! Who ya gotta be Tesla?!" added another.





So far, out of all the standard sharks, Mark Cuban (along with Kevin O'Leary and Lori Greiner) have been a part of every episode on Season 13. However, the last offer Cuban made was back on Episode 5, where he suggested he and Daymond John go in on a deal with SPERGO. However, John refused his request, as it was a clothing brand, and believed that there was little Cuban could bring to the table, which Cuban agreed with.

Cuban has managed to strike a few other joint deals early in the season -- he stuck deals with Songlorious and Proper Good on Episode 2. He made a deal with Flasky Flowers on Episode 3 and even offered Incredible Eats a deal, but unfortunately took it off the table. So it looks like Mark Cuban seems to be laying low for a while. 

What do you think? Will we get to see a deal from Cuban again this season? Sound off below! 'Shark Tank' Season 13 Episode 7 airs on ABC on November 19, 2021, at 8 pm ET.
