Kym Johnson Visits Robert Herjavec On ‘Shark Tank’ Set And Brings Special Guest
Robert Herjavec and Kym Johnson seem like a reality show romance made in heaven. Johnson is the seasoned pro from Dancing With the Stars, and Herjavec holds court on Shark Tank. The pair met and became “close” during DWTS earlier this year, and rumors quickly swirled that the pair were not just “in love” on set.
Robert is filming the new season of Shark Tank, and he recently brought Kym to the set for a visit. Kym didn’t come alone — she brought her precious pup, Lola, who was a bit of a ham for the camera. Robert’s Shark Tank co-star, Barbara Corcoran, showed off Robert and the pooch, and used the “g-word” when referring to Kym in her caption. Corcoran also made a clever statement about someone — the dog or Robert? — being “on a leash.”

Robert was also gushing over Lola, even giving her the chance to try out his luxurious chair on the Shark Tank panel.

Earlier this year, Herjavec had responded to romance rumors by saying that Johnson was already in a relationship — that she had a great dog.
Johnson also posted a picture of herself in Robert’s Shark Tank chair, mugging that she was “in,” and having a good time on-set.
Kym Johnson recently hit the high seas with Carson Kressley as they performed on a Dancing With the Stars-themed cruise. Johnson had Herjavec for company during their off hours, as her Instagram photos revealed.
Shark Tank is currently taping its seventh season. Herjavec’s advice for pitchers, surprisingly, comes from his experience on Dancing With the Stars, as he told Entrepreneur.
“The first thing we look for is someone who can grab our attention. We sit there 12 hours a day, 17 days in a row. We get bored and hungry and antsy. You’ve got to grab our attention. My best advice after being on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ and having to learn how to pitch myself every week is learn your business and your numbers so well that you can just forget it. And then go out and sell the dance.”
Robert Herjavec recently spoke with Business Insider about the traits that make good entrepreneurs. He told the website that most successful entrepreneurs have “a need to do something greater than themselves, and it’s usually out of necessity.” In terms of investments, he said it comes down to execution of an idea and not necessarily a revolutionary product.
