Gene Simmons Reveals He Refused The Offer Of Popular TV Show ‘Shark Tank’
KISS bassist Gene Simmons shared a post on his official Twitter page revealing a rare-known fact about himself to his fans and apparently, Simmons was asked by famous television producer Mark Burnett if he would consider being the host of the reality tv series ‘Shark Tank.’
As many of you know, ‘Shark Tank’ is a business reality television series that premiered on August 9, 2009, on ABC that shows businesspeople making marketing presentations to a panel of five investors or ‘sharks,’ who decide whether to invest in their company.
The show is produced and executed by Mark Burnett and based on another tv format which was originated in 2001 with the Japanese version of the show named ‘Tigers of Money.’ Burnett’s version, however, resembles the format of the British version, ‘Dragons’ Den,’ which premiered in 2005.
Recently, KISS’ legendary bassist shared a post on his official Twitter page unveiling an unknown fact about himself and his career with his fans. Seemingly, Gene Simmons was offered to be the host of ‘Shark Tank’ by the producer Mark Burnett himself even before any of the judges on the show was picked.
Here is what Simmons said:
“Little known fact: Mark Burnett originally asked me if I wanted to host his new TV Show before any of the judges came on – Shark Tank.”
