The Original Stretchlace Company will be featured tonight on the ABC television show Shark Tank. We had a chance to catch up with owner Jamie Montz this morning on the Kevin Miller Show on KIDO Talk Radio. 

She explained  how excited she and her family were to finally watch the episode that was filmed a year ago when most of the country was shut down.  You can read our first two articles profiling Jamie's company here and here.

We believe Jamie and her husband will be the last pitch of the night.  There's a whole set of media experts that report on what happens on Shark Tank.  Jamie said that her husband was there for her during the grilling from the Sharks.  They met in college at the University of Idaho.

Which Sharks are in the Tank Tonight?

Jamie explained that Mark Cuban, Kevin O'Leary, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec, and Daniel Lubentzky.  Mr. Wonderful does live up to his namesake she reports.

The couple had to stand and smile for thirty seconds once they were let into the studio. The set features lots of cameras to ensure that every pitch and facial expression is covered during the back and forth. Jamie told us that thousands of business owners fill out extensive application forms for the opportunity to appear on Shark Tank. There are several steps before an entrepreneur flies in for the pitch. This year due to Covid protocols, the show was filmed in Las Vegas.

What are Stretchlaces?

In the video below you can see how the The Original Stretchlaces work on any type of footwear.  Most businesses see a massive spike in online ordering during their broadcasts.  Jamie told us that she believes her servers are up to the challenge.  We will be reporting live tonight during the Shark Tank episode and we're working to get Jamie on Monday morning to go over tonight's episode.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
