Shark Tank sharks to swim with sharks on Shark Week

  Shark Tank sharks to swim with sharks on Shark Week The stars of Shark Tank are usually putting their money where their mouths are, but now they’re going to put their mouths — and the rest of their bodies — into the water to swim with their namesakes. In one of the marquee specials of Shark Week 2018, Mark Cuban, Kevin “Mr. Wonderful” O’Leary, Barbara Corcoran, and Daymond John will have more literal skin in the game than they ever have when they move from the tank to the water to learn all about actual sharks, EW has learned exclusively. Shark Tank Meets Shark Week features the stars of the ABC reality competition each pairing up with an oceanic organization to receive an education in the issues facing those misunderstood predators of the sea, ranging from habitat destruction, overfishing, and bycatch. The Sharks (minus Lori Greiner) will then return to the Shark Tank set, where they will reunite with fellow Shark, Robert Herjavec, and pitch each other as to why their organization deserves a $50,000 donation. Each Shark will then cast a vote for the organization that is most deserving of the money. Sorry, Mr. Wonderful, you can’t vote for yourself in this contest. This is the 30th installment of Shark Week, Discovery’s popular summer franchise. The festivities kick off Sunday, July 22 and last for eight days. Check out these first-look photos, in which O’Leary shows off his formal diving suit, and John side-eyes a shark.

A teenager is recovering from a minor shark bite he received in Hilton Head , South Carolina August 10 . Linton Suttle was pushing his sister on a boogie board near the Sea Pines Beach Club when he decided to dive into the water. The 13- year - old felt a pain in his left foot and instinctively pulled away.

Experts at the International Shark Attack File have confirmed a 10 - year - old Kentucky boy was the third person bitten by a shark on Hilton Head Island since June. This year, there have been five confirmed shark bites in South Carolina .

Tonya Turrell told the Island Packet of Hilton Head that her son Jei was bitten in the right forearm while he and his brother were playing Sunday on Hilton Head Island.

Turrell says the family had been at the beach about an hour when she heard her son screaming “Shark!” and saw blood.

“He is a trooper,” said Turrell, who wrapped Jei’s arm in a towel and went to a lifeguard for help. “He is so brave.”

The boy was flown to a hospital in Savannah, Georgia. He underwent surgery Sunday and Turrell said he’s recovering but likely wouldn’t want to venture back into the ocean anytime soon.

Experts at the Florida Museum of Natural History confirmed the shark bite from photos of the wound but were not sure what kind of shark it was.

Turrell said she wouldn’t have let her children go into the water if she’d known about recent, frequent water evacuations in the Hilton Head Island area. According to Mike Wagner, operations manager for Hilton Head Island Shore Beach Service, those happen almost daily during the summer season. Some of those evacuations are for shark sightings or lightning strikes, but most are to bring in swimmers venturing too far out, Wagner said.

Several days before Jei was bitten, there were evacuations in the late morning and early afternoon after a shark was spotted swimming back and forth in shallow water in the area.

Sunday afternoon’s incident was the first reported shark bite of 2018 on Hilton Head Island, according to Wagner. In 2017, there were 10 confirmed shark attacks in South Carolina. Of those, eight were on Hilton Head Island.
