The 10 Most Successful Products On Shark Tank Are Not What You Would Expect

- Page 1

Of course all the judges on Shark Tank are business experts, but it's still amazing to learn that these products  all went on to become huge success stories:

1. The Breathometer

Charles Yim says a night at the bar with his friends inspired him to make this product, which is a portable breathalyzer that attaches to your phone. All 5 Sharks split a $1 million investment - the first time they ever did so - and interest from Silicon Valley means the idea has earned them millions more since then.

Unfortunately, the company has also been forced to pay back millions after it was revealed their devices were measuring Blood Alcohol Content incorrectly. Oops!

2. Wicked Good Cupcakes

Kevin O'Leary AKA Mr. Wonderful is known for making tough deals with the show's contestants. Tracey Noonan and her daughter Danielle Desroches earned $75,000 for their cupcake delivery business from the Shark.

While they have made over $8 million in sales, Wicked Good still pays O'Leary 50 cents for every cupcake they sell - forever. A sweet deal, for him at least.

3. The Squatty Potty

This company has gotten some bad press recently, and had to fire their spokeswoman Kathy Griffin for her controversial "joke" about President Trump. But Squatty Potty - which earned a $350,000 investment from "Queen of QVC" Lori Greiner - made $30 million in revenue last year.

Not only have their line of "good posture" toilet seats taken off, they also sell novelty t-shirts and air fresheners.

4. Bubba's-Q Boneless Ribs

Al "Bubba" Baker's pitch for his boneless rib recipe impressed the Sharks - probably because they got free samples. Since Daymond John invested $300,000 in the business, it's been featured on the Food Network, QVC, and in more than 150 stores nationwide, making more than $3 million each year.

5. GrooveBook

Scrap-booking is a billion dollar industry, which explains why Sharks Mark Cuban and Kevin O'Leary jumped at the chance to invest $150,000 in this online scrap-booking company. GrooveBook sold to online photo company ShutterFly in 2014 for a cool $14.5 million, making both of them very happy.
