Mark Cuban and the other "Shark Tank" regulars will have some big-name guests in the ABC show's ninth season.
"Guest sharks" next season will be Sara Blakely, founder and owner of Spanx; Virgin Group founder Richard Branson; Bethenny Frankel, founder and CEO of Skinnygirl; Rohan Oza, who's know as "Hollywood's Brandfather"; and Alex Rodriguez, CEO of AROD Corp.
Of course, they will bring star power to the ABC reality series as well. Rodriguez played for the New York Yankees, and Frankel is a star of "The Real Housewives of New York City." Branson, one of the world's most famous men, has a net worth in the billions.
ABC will unveil its fall lineup to advertisers on Tuesday in New York City.
But these "guest sharks" will not be displaying the regulars: billionaire and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, real estate mogul Barbara Corcoran, "Queen of QVC" Lori Greiner, technology innovator Robert Herjavec, fashion and branding expert Daymond John and and venture capitalist Kevin O'Leary.
Cuban and Herjavec both competed on "Dancing With the Stars." Herjavec later married his dance partner, Kym Johnson.
So reality television at ABC can enhance your life.
