Shark Tank is going big for season 8, exceeding $100 million in deals made in the Tank. That should be good for Trisha Prabhu, a contestant who has an idea to help stop cyber bullying before it starts.

In a clip from Friday night’s premiere, Trisha pitches her Rethink app to the panel of six Sharks: Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Lori Greiner, Robert Herjavec, Daymond John, and Kevin O’Leary. “Cyber bullies hide behind their screens and use mean, tormenting, and humiliating words every day to bully others,” she says. “It’s a silent pandemic that affects millions, but I’m determined to stop this.”

The combination of the $100 million commitment and the expanded Shark roster gives contestants more opportunities than ever before. Will the Rethink idea pique their interest? We’ll have to wait and see when season 8 premieres Friday at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
