Each week, a group of bud­ding en­trepreneurs fronted up to pitch their unique ideas to a panel of five self-made mil­lion­aires in the hopes of snar­ing an in­vest­ment.

Many of the prod­ucts and ser­vices pre­sented on Shark Tank im­pressed, some were just so-so and a cou­ple proved to be plain bad.

As the fi­nale of the hit Net­work Ten re­al­ity show nears, the sharks de­liver their ver­dicts on the best and worst mo­ments of the first sea­son.

Res­cue Swag – a mul­ti­pur­pose first aid kit that dou­bles as a sling, splint, com­pres­sion de­vice and wa­ter car­rier.

Ranchero Salsa, Mex­i­can hot sauces.

Bot­tle­pops – themed bot­tle open­ers that make sounds.

The Scrubba Wash Bag – a small por­ta­ble wash­ing ma­chine.

PB Con­veyor Tray – a pro­to­type of a con­veyor belt that fits in the tray of any truck.

I won’t say much but it in­volved toi­let lids, au­to­ma­tion and a very, very en­thu­si­as­tic in­ven­tor. I think Rent Re­sume.

We Teach Me. We Teach Me. Scope My Project.

Bot­tle­pops, which I think will de­liver the fastest re­turn.

Al­low­ing Naomi to gazump me on Hegs Pegs, the wash pegs with a hook, was some­thing I’d change if I could. I don’t have any re­grets.

I haven’t got a taker for Ham­dog – the half ham­burger, half hot­dog busi­ness.
