The sharks on “Shark Tank” invest tons of money in countless ventures on the show, which could make you wonder how much cash they have to throw around in the first place.
While the cast is packed with widely recognized millionaires, the sharks' precise net worths are less known.
Here’s how much money they really have (and, more importantly, who really has the most money).
6 Barbara Corcoran
Net worth: $80 million
As Corcoran details in her memoir Shark Tales, the real estate genius started her business off with just a grand but eventually built it into a multi-billion-dollar operation. She sold the business for a cool $66 million back in 2001, combining the profit with other gains to total about 80 mil.
5 Lori Greiner
Net worth: $100 million
Greiner may have the most hands-on experience creating products. The so-call “Queen of QVC” has created over 500 products and holds 120 patents. She has also hosted her own show, Clever & Unique Creations by Lori Greiner, for 18 years, bringing her just into nine-digit territory.
4 Robert Herjavec
Net worth: $200 million
Nearly doubling Greiner’s wealth, Herjavec has made pretty good for a kid who started out in Communist Yugoslavia. As the principal in cyber-security firm Herjavec Group, he has contributed to global cyber safety while earning himself a nice profit in the process.
3 Daymond John
Net worth: $300 million
Another $100 million jump up, John has been a member of the shark tank since day one. He built his fashion business up from nothing, starting off making hats in an apartment in Queens, and now his company, FUBU, has notched $6 billion in sales.
2 Kevin O’Leary
Net worth: $400 million
Mr. Wonderful has a pretty storied investing history. After earning his MBA he founded a production company, followed by a software company, which he eventually sold to Mattel for $4.2 billion. He also founded Storage Now, which produces climate controlled storage facilities. The businesses may be varied, but they all helped make O’Leary a very rich man.
1 Mark Cuban
Net worth: $4.1 billion
It’s not even close. Cuban has more money than all the other sharks combined. From his hugely successful multimedia company, which he sold to Yahoo! in 1999, to ownership of the Dallas Mavericks, to his control of film industry titans like Landmark Theaters and Magnolia Pictures, Cuban deserves his spot at #190 on the “Forbes 400” list.
