Robert Herjavec: Rolex Shark Tank

...Rolex Shark...

Robert Herjavec

Rolex Shark Tank

Robert Herjavec is best known as being one of the Sharks on the major hit, Shark Tank. Robert was born in Croatia (formerly Yugoslavia) and at the age of 8 years old, in 1972 his family moved to Halifax, Canada, where they arrived with one suitcase and $20. His family then moved to Toronto and lived in the basement of a friend of the family for 18 months. At the time Robert spoke no English. In the photo below we see Robert wearing his Platinum Rolex Daytona, which is commonly referred to by its nickname of Playtona.

Robert's father got a job in a factory making only $76 per week and would walk to work instead of taking the bus in order to save money for his family. Robert once said that his father was "a really, really tough guy" once heard Robert complaining about how kids from school had been making fun of him and responded by telling Rober never to complain. This lack of complaining became a guiding principle for Robert and contributed significantly to his persistence. 


Robert Herjavec is one of six sharks on Shark Tank, as we see below from top left to bottom right: Daymond John, Mark Cuban, Roger Herjavec, Barbara Corcoran, Kevin O'Leary, & Lori Greiner.

Shark Tank is one of the most popular TV shows in modern history, which features real-life entrepreneurs who get pitched on different ideas and then decide if they want to invest in them—while offering financial business advice to companies. The lighting and decoration on the set of Shark Tank is amazing! It is dimly lit and kind of reminds me of the Cheesecake Factory.

Robert Herjavec has an amazing collection of Rolex watches which features many different Daytona models as well as a white gold Submariner and a rose gold Yacht-Master.

Robert Herjavec was married in 1990 to Diane Plese and they seperated in 2014. They have two duaghters. In 2015 Robert fell in love with his former Dancing with the Stars partner Kym Johnson, and they got married in 2016. In late 2018 they had twins.
