The investors on Shark Tank can get pretty intense when they’re discussing money matters, but the set has a completely different atmosphere when all the cameras aren’t rolling.
Lori Greiner, one of the six main investors on the current season of Shark Tank, just shared a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on when in between pitches and during commercial breaks. “This is one of my fav songs they often play between pitches on set,” Greiner wrote on Twitter, along with a link to a YouTube video that she posted earlier today.
The 30-second video shows the cast getting primped while Pitbull’s song “Fireball” plays on the speaker. The best part of the video, by far, is Mark Cuban having his own little dance party in the background. Even straight-faced Kevin O’Leary looks like he’s enjoying the beat.
Shark Tank has been around for the past four years, but the reality series has been picking up serious steam this past season. According to last week’s Nielsen ratings, Shark Tank is the network’s number one Friday show among adults (aged 18 to 49) with almost seven million viewers tuning in.

Shark Tank was developed as the American version of Dragon’s Den and since debuting in 2009, the show has helped to propel a number of businesses to incredible new heights. Many have even gone on to build partnerships and mergers with major companies.
For instance, back in season five, O’Leary and Cuban teamed up to invest $150,000 in a startup mobile app business called GrooveBook, which collects a monthly fee in exchange for a book that features up to 100 photos from the member’s smartphone. Less than a year after their successful appearance on Shark Tank, GrooveBook was acquired by Shutterfly—a publicly traded company—for $14.5 million.
