Carol Foster and her Mee-Ma's Louisiana Gumbo Brick has to be one of the all-time Shark Tank success stories. Just the heart-breaking fact that she was basically homeless and living off the kindness of her extended family is enough to make your heart go out to her, but THEN we learn that KEVIN O'LEARY has a HEART and possibly even SHEDS TEARS from time to time. Thrilling.
He and Lori invested $100,000 each in exchange for 50% of the company, saying that they didn't think she was worth her asking price ($200,000 for 20%), but that they knew she had a great product and would work her butt of to get it into the stores that were asking for it.
The best part: when Carol equated okra with Mr. Wonderful by calling it "slimey" :)
