In 2013, former NFL player Al "Bubba" Baker appeared on Shark Tank to pitch his product, Bubba Q’s boneless ribs. Investor Daymond John became his partner, and now Bubba’s Boneless Ribs are available all over the country.
You can try them on the new Baby Back Rib Burger at any Carl’s Jr. or Hardee’s. Here’s what it looks like, and you can find one at a Carl’s Jr. location or a Hardee’s location.

So now, let’s do it. ASK US ANYTHING
EDIT: Thanks for taking time to ask me and Bubba about the Baby Back Rib Burger...and everything else. Try them yourself at any Carl's Jr or Hardee's locations. I'M OUT.
hey guys.. twist on a classic..
would you rather fight 100 duck sized Mr. Wonderfuls, or 1 horse-sized Mark Cuban?
100 duck-sized Mr. Wonderfuls, because I can keep kicking them. Coincidentally, I have about 100 ducks on my property.
Daymond, would you ever consider have investing in the marijuana industry? If not, why? If so. What area specifically?
Sure, but people don't think outside of the box. If I invest in software, or packaging, or wrapping, I can invest in the industry without dealing with the product directly.
Which Shark is most different in real live versus the Shark Tank?
I would say that Kevin is much nicer in person than he is on the show.
Daymond: Is there a product you passed on or didn't close the deal with on Shark Tank that haunts you to this day?
No. Either the deal wasn't good enough, I didn't like the entrepreneur or I didnt have the right vision for the product.
Not rolling up my sleeves and diving deep into Heatherette. And I lost $6 million dollars in the process.
Two questions (perhaps one foreach?)
I haven't watched this episode. Can someone give me a season/episode?
This one is more for Daymond. How heated does it actually get? I know producers want the show to look like there's a bit of drama at times.. but you all seem like wonderful people. Yes, I chose that word carefully.
Edit: It's S5E11 if anyone else missed it.
The show is extremely real. The pitches are an hour long but you only see 8 minutes of it. But this is our money and we don't want to lose. It's like playing football with your best friend: I'm gonna crack his head until the white meat, but then be friends after the game.
Hey! Huge fan!! This one's for Daymond or Bubba. I've been feeling extremely sad and unmotivated lately and leaving my projects and business unfinished. What motivated you during the TOUGH times in the beginning?
Practicing goal-setting. It's not simple. I'd recommend reading Napoleon Hill's "Think and Grow Rich" and read your goals every night before you go to sleep, and then read them again when you wake up.
No question: Kansas City.
Daymond and Bubba! Daymond: Who is your favorite shark besides yourself? Do you all hang out often and are you friends? Bubba: Who is your favorite Shark besides Daymond? And do you see doing any other collaborations in the future with popular food chains/products?
My favorite Shark is whoever I did a deal with last. And yes, we all hang out. I believe we're all friends.
