Swimming with Sharks – a new RedBalloon experience



Network Ten’s new show where entrepreneurs pitch to millionaire investors Dragons Den Shark Tank has created a bit of speculation around just who those Dragons Sharks will be.

At the end of last month The Australian’s Media Diary reported a rumour that ad-man turned media mogul John ‘Singo’ Singleton would be filling one of the leather chairs set aside for high rollers, reprising a role he took up last year for Carnegie’s Den (note to potential pitchers, don’t turn up in a tracksuit, Singo doesn’t like that).

However, at a Marie Claire event this week Dr Mumbo reckons another of the Sharks inadvertently outed herself.

When asked about having fear of doing something new the founder of experience gifting company RedBalloon, Naomi Simson, said something new she was going to be doing was “being a judge on a TV show next year”. Now unless she’s being roped in for the panel of The Voice or X Factor, it’s pretty clear that’ll be something business related.

Although swimming with sharks is already a gift experience you can buy your loved ones this Christmas on RedBalloon, and he’s sure would-be contestants will be hoping to ‘experience happy’ with Simson.
