Celebrities Who Would Make Great Guest Stars on ‘Shark Tank’

Shark Tank has their usual sharks to hear and cut deals with business owners. But sometimes the show switches things up with celebrity guest stars. This is great since we get to see many celebrities, like Ashton Kutcher and Jeff Foxworthy, who have successfully pursued other business ventures and invest big money in new businesses.

But the show could use more of these stars. So we decided to come up with a list of celebrities we would love to see play sharks for a day, making the hard decisions for at least one episode. Here are seven celebrities who would make great guest stars on Shark Tank.

1. Gwyneth Paltrow

The Oscar-winning actress is now pretty controversial, and that has a lot to do with her career change. Now she is running the successful business, Goop. The website is often focused on wellness and promoting products that are expensive and questionable.

But the one thing you can’t deny: Se found that there are people in the market that want this type of information and provided it. So why not have her on the show to give advice to other entrepreneurs and potentially go into business with them?

Gwyneth Paltrow is also interested in television. She, along with Jessica Alba ,have an Apple show together called Planet of Apps, which is very similar to Shark Tank. Four judges, including themselves, hear pitches for new apps and swipe left or right on them. Why not do a crossover episode with the show that inspired them?

2. Jessica Alba

The mother was inspired by her own experiences and her children to create the business, The Honest Company. It’s another business that has made headlines for sometimes controversial reasons, but it’s undeniably successful, and Jessica Alba has had to learn a lot in the public eye.

3. Donnie Wahlberg

The Blue Bloods actor is still busy acting. But his family is known for running the family restaurant, Wahlburgers. They also have done reality television before to promote it.

So why not have him on Shark Tank and possibly help future family restaurant owners?

4. Sean Combs

He went from rapper to successful business mogul. Sean “P. Diddy” Combs has had his hands in different avenues, with clothing lines, fragrances, and Ciroc vodka.

He might be one of the few celebrities to have experience in so many forms of business, so why not tap into that?

5. George Foreman

The Olympic medalist boxer has been able to find a new career by creating a very successful product: the George Foreman Grill.

He is also trying to come up with his own business reality show where inventors try to get funding. So it seems like he would be interested in appearing on Shark Tank.

6. Kris Jenner

The momager is definitely responsible for her family becoming the phenomenon that they are now. They are successful from a long-running reality show, beauty and fashion lines, and more.

As someone who was part of making all those deals happen, it would be interesting to see her at work on the ABC show.

7. Oprah Winfrey

This would definitely be a long shot, since Oprah Winfrey is busy being a business mogul every day. But what show wouldn’t benefit from having her on?

The Oscar winner went from being a talk show host to having her own television network, magazine, and more. Every aspiring entrepreneur could benefit learning from her.
