However, fans wondered why the show allowed celebrities to compete. They noticed that the ABC hit series “jumped the shark” by allowing celebrities to compete.

It lost the original post, which gave inspiration to those who wanted to achieve success with their small businesses. Some fans took to Reddit to react to the controversial episode.

“They may very well have a viable and beneficial product, but a celebrity family with a TON of money and connections taking up time on what is, in theory, a show that gives resources to small business owners who need a leg up just feels soooo tone-deaf and selfish,” one fan wrote.

“There’s no way that a product would have gotten a deal if they were your everyday entrepreneurs. A complete waste of a segment,” another user mused.

Lori Greiner offered the most attractive deal. She started negotiations with a $500,000 offer for 6$ stake in the company. Patrick counter-offered with a 3.5% stake, but Lori turned it down. She asked for 5% or at least 4.5%. After pausing for several seconds, and asking his mom, Patrick agreed to take the deal.
