'Need a dose of reality': 'Shark Tank' fans slam TNGNT as founders close contingency deal with Robert
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: 'Shark Tank' returned this week with a fresh episode, and the TNGNT Ski Bikes made an appearance. The founders of this outdoor machine were searching for a shark to bite and provide a $200K investment for 20% of their firm. Even though the company got away with a deal from Shark Robert Herjavec, albeit not the one they had hoped for, it failed to impress the viewers at home. 'Shark Tank' fans were skeptical about the items' endurance.
TNGNT Ski Bikes is a ski bike firm that assists riders with ease, strength, and flexibility. It is specially developed for people who are new to the sport. 'Shark Tank' entrepreneurs Scott Carr and Bill Pierce presented the Sharks with an alternate idea that would wonderfully transform the skiing process in Season 14, Episode 17.

'That name is so bad'
Disagreeing with the founders' claims, fans on Reddit wrote, "This is not going to be in the Olympics in 10 years."

One person felt the same as the Sharks, "That name is so bad."
One Redditor commented, "They do need a dose of reality." Doubting if the company should have gone with Shark Robert's offer, a fan wrote, "Was the 40% contingent on getting Shaun White or not? I wouldn’t want to give away that much and the guy wants no part of this."
