‘Shark Tank’ preview: LockerBones, Alaska Glacial Mud, and a Tom + Chee update

Shark Tank -Ready to have a visit from some of your favorite Sharks? If so, the good news that we have for you today is that “Shark Tank” is going to be returning to ABC Friday night with yet another new episode that will feature a little bit of everything. Want to hear about products for your skin? You got it, and you can follow that up with balloons and also locker organizers that can make functioning at school a million times easier.

Before we do anything else, let’s go ahead and share what is the official synopsis released by ABC for this particular installment. (Update: You can read the full review here.)

“A woman from Cordova, Alaska touts her mud mask made of hand harvested glacial mud from the Copper River Delta in Alaska; two men from Encino, California show off their powerstrips and surge protectors designed to blend in with hardwood floors; two men from Clinton, Mississippi unveil their patented school locker organizing system, and a Wesley Chapel, Florida entrepreneur believes his creating fanciful balloon designs by a are among this week’s bait for the Sharks. Will they invest? Plus, an update with the Cincinnati owners of Tom & Chee, a gourmet grilled cheese business in which Mark Cuban and Barbara Corcoran invested last season.”

We can tell you now that the locker organizer is called LockerBones, and it at least in theory seems like a pretty smart product that keeps your locker from becoming a mess. The only problem with selling them? If most students are like us, we avoided going to our locker as much as possible, and at most, you are going to spend a couple of minutes there between classes. As for the product in Alaska, that’s Alaska Glacial Mud. We’re no expert in skincare, so we’re not going to tell you if it works better than any of the other mud-related products that are out there. We’re just interested that there is someone from one of America’s most-remote states on the show this year.

As for Tom + Chee, just know that they are doing just fine, with stores in 15 states and tons of money coming in. While grilled cheese may be pretty simple, this business has come up with a way to elevate it just enough to be worth a buy, while it is also still affordable enough for most consumers.
