PAST PITCHERS GET A SECOND CHANCE TO STRIKE A DEAL
- Dragonsâ€™ Den Second Chance Episode Airs January 11, 2012 at 8 p.m. (8:30 p.m. NT)
Who says you never get a second chance to make a first impression? On Wednesday January 11 at 8 p.m. (8:30 p.m. NT), a handful of lucky entrepreneurs from past Seasons of DRAGONSâ€™ DEN will get to do just that.
In a special edition of the hit reality show airing Wednesday January 11 at 8 p.m. (8:30 p.m. NT) on CBC Television, seven lucky presenters receive a coveted do-over. Rejected the first time â€“some made crucial changes, others proved the Dragons wrong â€“ and now theyâ€™ll re-pitch their proposals to Canadaâ€™s most discerning investors.
Pitchers from past Seasons who left the Den with nothing are determined to convince the Dragons that theyâ€™re worth a second glance. For example, Vancouver entrepreneur Joel Primus made a brazen bid on season 4, with only â€œa prototype and a dreamâ€ â€“ now heâ€™s back with national retailers on board â€“ and a new partner.
Other viewer-favourite pitchers return to the Den â€“ even though they originally turned down a deal. New Brunswickâ€™s Olivier Soaps made a dramatic exit from the Den in Season 5 after turning down a double-Dragon deal. But, one year later, theyâ€™ve realized that they still need help after all.
Tune in to this all-new special episode of DRAGONSâ€™ DEN to see who is thriving, and who is barely surviving â€“ and if a second chance is all it will take to score a much-needed investment to finally take them to the next level.
