When Jeremy Bloom, Dhani Jones and Craig Cooper headed into shark-infested waters wearing shark-repelling bands around their ankles, they expected to be in the middle of a feeding frenzy. What they did not expect was that the repellent would fail.
Face-to-face with Caribbean reef sharks, the three co-hosts and investors found themselves in a precarious situation on the latest episode of CNBC's "Adventure Capitalists," a reality show in which entrepreneurs pitch their adventure products in the great outdoors.
The investors weren't the only ones feeling nervous. Brian Wynne, the brainchild behind the SharkStopper, an acoustic-based shark repellent that uses killer whale sounds and high frequencies to scare away sharks, was just as anxious.
