Have you found yourself watching Shark Tank every week, only to notice the judges are wearing the SAME exact outfit as they did the week before?

Well, you’re not alone and you’re not seeing things - they actually do this on purpose. 

This isn’t something you’d normally see on a reality show, with the likes of The Bachelor and The Block, where the hosts wear different get ups each week.

But there’s a reason the sharks all wear the same outfit every week and it all makes sense!


Red Balloon founder, Naomi Simson always wears a bright red, peplum dress, Boost founder, Janine Allis, always wears an olive green jumpsuit and Andrew Banks, Steve Baxter and Dr Glen Richards repeatedly wear their chosen suits.

Why? The Daily Mail found out by digging back into Janine’s old blog posts from February, 2015, which explained:

“The clothes I wore during the show were another learning curve for me,” she wrote.

“Shine, the production house told me that we need to wear the same clothes for the entire filming so they can mix and match the pitches so that each show has a great balance. As you can imagine, the pressure was huge to get the outfit right, particularly for me as I am not that fashion forward.

“I am very familiar with Lululemon and Lorna Jane but, really did not know where to go to get the outfit!”

So, the reason they’re always in the same outfits is because we don’t see the pitches from contestants in the order the judges see them, meaning the judges have to wear the same thing all the time to make it look as if they are!
