Entrepreneurs Needed For New Reality Show

When you're down and troubled, and you need a helping hand, it could be time to escape from reality and into reality TV. Starring YOU.

When you're down and troubled, and you need a helping hand, it could be time to escape from reality and into reality TV. Starring YOU.British TV show producer Mark Burnett, of Survivor and Apprentice fame, is looking for a few good aspiring entrepreneurs and inventors to jump into the "Shark Tank," his upcoming ABC reality show. Think Dragon's Den on BBC (on tonight at 8 p.m.).

"Shark Tank is a show that rewards entrepreneurship, ingenuity, and guts, and has generated real-life success stories around the world. We look forward to giving the next wave of American business minds a fast track to fulfilling their ambitions," Burnett told Entrepreneur.com.

The sharks in this show are multimillionaire investors who will decide whose idea is worthy of investment -- and then receive it. Who those sharks are, whether they bite, and how much money is up for grabs hasn't been disclosed, but this could be a fun way to put yourself on the map. Winning would be secondary, plus keep in mind: Did Jennifer Hudson, Chris Daughtry, or Clay Aiken win American Idol?

To apply, e-mail a brief paragraph containing only nonconfidential and nonproprietary information about yourself and your idea, along with contact info and a recent photo to Charisse Simonian, Casting Director of Mark Burnett Productions, [email protected]. Deadline: Friday, Oct. 24 (as in two days). Make sure to read over the fine print, which essentially covers the show's booty against litigation later on.

To say entrepreneurs are daring would be redundant. (Yet I wrote it anyway.) So why not go for it? Just tell them bMighty.com sent you.
