One thought on “Dragons’ Den announces new season with 2018 audition tour”

  1. Heartbreaking to see what’s happened to this show, I can’t bear to watch anymore. Jim Treliving is the only true dragon left. We have a showman who seems nice enough, but like he needs to work out life issues instead of bringing a wild man to a business setting. A disrespectful millennial who’s showing us everything wrong with the new generation (Mr. Treliving has earned his stripes blondie, a little respect please). Mr. t-shirt who begins every single sentence with “you’re in a competitive field”… yes, no kidding. Is there a rock unturned on earth? Every field is competitive, that’s why they need dragons darling. Then Mrs. Marketing who’s only there to market herself (we know you’re a veg and love your brother, you can stop repeating it now). I miss when Arlene brought marketing knowledge to the table and not just being a human billboard for herself. By showing expertise, she automatically built her brand, didn’t need to constantly self-promote. I just can’t watch anymore, this show has become painful.
