‘Shark Tank’ Season 11 Episode 21: Daisy Hall tears up during Potty Safe pitch, fans say it was over-the-top
'Let’s turn on the waterworks to get a deal,' said a fan
ABC’s ‘Shark Tank’ Episode 21 saw yet another set of very interesting product ideas from entrepreneurs. One of them was the Potty Safe Child Proof Potty Training Toilet.
Founded by parents Colt and Daisy Hall, the child-friendly product was their invention when they were raising their first child in her toddler years. While potty training, the couple ended up with many unpleasant experiences trying to teach their daughter. Despite a thorough search of the right kind of potty chair, they were disappointed and couldn’t find anything that is childproof. Thus Potty Safe was born.
Ever since the Halls came up with the product and dished it out to customers, friends and families, they have been receiving great reviews from parents of toddlers. But when they came to pitch the product at ‘Shark Tank’, fans didn’t quite seem to be happy with the way the product was presented.
While pitching for their business, Daisy got emotional, talking about her growing up years and going to college and how difficult it has been for her. A fan on Twitter criticized her pitch saying, “Seriously it’s ridiculous how emotional she got talking about college and it wasn’t even that good of a story #SharkTank.”
Although at times, entrepreneurs tend to get teary-eyed sharing their stories of struggles, fans thought that it was not required for Daisy. Their product seemed viable and effective and breaking down in tears about her own life was a little over the top. “Okay sometimes the tears are not necessary #SharkTank UGGH”, commented a fan.
Another sarcastically seconded the same, saying, “Let’s turn on the waterworks to get a deal Unamused #SharkTank.” Another fan wonders what could have triggered the entrepreneur to break into tears like that. She asks, “Was her college memories that bad or was that working mom guilt? #sharktank”
Some fans are even wondering how such a product could be on a show like ‘Shark Tank’. “#sharktank I am sort of surprised that the potty trainer thing made it on the show”, remarks a fan.
Potty Safe Child Proof Potty Training Toilet is like a detachable bowl that can be attached to a chair. It comes with a lock that only an adult can remove, making it safe for the child. Thus, it makes the entire exercise clean and devoid of any spills or unpleasant experience for both the child and the parent. The product is available in three color variants: Pink, grey, and yellow.
You can find more details of the potty trainer on the brand's website.
‘Shark Tank’ Season 11 will air last two episodes on May 13 and May 15 respectively at 8 pm/7c on ABC.
