No, Shark Tank Did NOT Feature Some Testosterone Booster

Home » Testosterone Boosters » No, Shark Tank Did NOT Feature Some Testosterone Booster

I had a few guys come to me over the past few weeks asking if I heard the miracle testosterone boosting pill that was recently seen on Shark Tank.

Immediately I thought “scam”, but figured I’d look into it a bit deeper.

What I found was shocking, to say the least.

Let me explain a bit how this scam works, and then I’ll show you proof that it really does NOT exist.

The Hook

It can happen pretty much anywhere.

You could be scrolling through your Facebook or Twitter feed, browsing websites like or Fox News, or even get an email that says “Shark Tank investors fight over new explosive testosterone booster”.

Typically you’ll see an ad that looks like this:

fake testosterone cure ad

Or sometimes it looks like this:

facebook shark tank weight loss ad

Once you click on it, the story goes like this…

Two sisters from South Korea, Angela and Yoojin Kim, recently went on Shark Tank to pitch their new product to the sharks.

In the other ad, the sisters are named Anna and Samantha Martin.

What product, you may be asking?

Well, that depends on the day you’re seeing the story.

One day it was Test X Core.

The next day it was some weight loss pill called Mylife Garcinia.

Another day it was another supplement called Primal Growth, which appeared to be a male enhancement pill.

I have even come across a completely different article that apparently appeared on the “Today show” website, that said DSN pre workout scored the big investment.

For the purposes of this article, we’re going to stick with the testosterone booster.

So in this “episode” of Shark Tank, the 2 sisters apparently netted the biggest deal in Shark Tank history.

What was their claim to fame?

Well, apparently they invented some new chemical compound that boost testosterone production in men.

How does it do this?

According to them, this chemical compound is the first of its kind to cause a PERMANENT retention in testosterone.

kim sisters invent permanent ed cure

What does this mean?

In short, its a permanent cure for erectile dysfunction.

All 5 sharks were in, (including Mark Cuban, who notoriously hates anything to do with supplements), and agreed to seed them with $2.5 MILLION in funding.

They even show a screenshot of investor Robert Herjavec being interviewed one-on-one on the Jeff Probst show”, quoting him as saying

“This is an industry that has been desperate for a cure for so long.I’m thrilled to be working with the Kim Sisters and am looking forward to scaling production.”

This supposed “Fox News article” goes on to state that enlisted the help of one of their reporters to test out this amazing new product.

shark tank testosterone booster test results

The results were nothing short of amazing.

The reporter “tested” this miracle testosterone booster out on her husband, and the effects were enormous.

She says that in less than 1 hour, her husband woke up with a woody that she hasn’t seen in YEARS.

She goes on to vulgarly explain the details, stating that “his cock was so hard, I’ve never had an orgasm like that”.

As we all know, such language is very common for a Fox News article 😉

Typically, you’re not going to come across soft-core “adult” fiction in a new story that is being presented by Fox News.

Why This Is ALL Complete B.S. – Red Flag #1

The whole thing really starts to fall to pieces when you try to look for the actual Shark Tank episode.

For one, you won’t find anything credible if you search for the keywords “kim sisters on shark tank”.

kim sisters on shark tank google searchAnd the reason why is because “they” don’t exist!

Well, they do, but they’re not the kim sisters.

Case in point, remember this image from the beginning of the article?

kim sisters shark tank scam

Well, it turns out that this is a complete FAKE!

Here’s the real Shark Tank episode:

shark tank glow recipe episode

Their ACTUAL names are Sarah Lee and Christine Chang from New York City.

They are the co-founders of “Glow Recipe”, and are seeking $425,000 for 10% of their company.

You can watch the part of the episode below (Starts art around 9 min.):

robert herjavic interview

So clearly, not the “Kim” sisters.

Red Flag #2 – The Robert Herjavec interview

Remember that screenshot of Robert Herjavec being interviewed on the Jeff Probst show?

This one:

robert herjovec and jeff probst on the jeff probst show or fox

Well, that too is B.S.

I just watched the entire 15 minute interview, which by the way aired in February of 2013, and not ONCE did he mention ANYTHING about the Kim sisters.

You can see it for yourself below:

Red Flag #3 – This is NOTFox News

If you haven’t figured it out yet (which I’m sure you have), this “article” really isn’t on the Fox news website.

Sure, it “looks” like the site.

But upon closer examination, you’ll see that it’s NOT.

Case in point, look at the URL.

fake fox news site

It might be a bit hard to see if you’re looking at this on your phone, but the website address clearly says, NOT

Red Flag #4 – The REALReason They Did This

So ultimately at the bottom of the article you’ll see that this magic testosterone booster is none other than a supplement called Test X Core.

testx core on shark tank

I wrote about this supplement earlier this month, and they were using a similar type of scam to promote their product.

Instead of saying it was seen on Shark Tank, instead they said that Tom Brady was on the verge of being banned by the NFL for using this particular supplement.

From the button that screams “CLAIM YOUR FREE BOTTLE” you would probably infer that indeed you’d be getting a free bottle.

I don’t blame you…

If you click on that button it takes you to the official Test X Core website, where you can input your information to claim your free bottle.

And it’s here, in VERY fine print I may add, where the truth is revealed.

test x core terms and conditions

In case you can’t read that, here’s a summary:

  • When you place your order, you’ll automatically be enrolled in their membership program.
  • On the 15th day after you’ve ordered, you’ll be CHARGED a whopping $89.41 for this sample.
  • You’ll also be charged every 30 days the same price, and sent a new bottle every month.
  • You have to call to cancel.

I detail the scam in my full Test X Core review, but I figured I’d touch on it here since it relates to the Shark Tank article.

Update! Now They’re Claiming Dan Effers Got a Deal!

So I was going through this post and looking at what some people were searching to get to this review, when I came across this:

who is dan effers

Google is telling me that 369 people searched for his name in the last month, and it has something to do with Shark Tank.

So, I did a quick search on “Dan Effers” to see if I could figure out what was going on.

I came across the first link, which looked very familiar.


It’s pretty clear from the evidence above that there was no deal with the Kim sisters, no Shark Tank episode featuring a testosterone booster called Test X Core, and no Fox News article.

At the end of the day, the Kim sisters Shark Tank conspiracy is yet another example of how easy it is to be duped over the internet, and an opportunity to teach people what to look out in regard to honest advertising online.

The whole premise of this fake marketing is to get you to believe that this product REALLY does work, and bilking you from your money by signing up for their free trial where ultimately you will pay THROUGH THE ROOF.

If you want to save others from falling for this scam, I IMPLORE you to PLEASE:

Share / Like this page on Facebook.

Tweet it to your friends.

and email it to everyone you know.

The more people that know about this scam the better.

Here’s a quick list of testosterone boosters claiming to be featured on Shark Tank: Steel cut testosterone, True Testo, Ultimate Testo explosion, Alpha Muscle Complex, Dominant Testo, Alpha X Boost, Testo Ultra, DSN pre workout, Nitrobuild Plus, Test Boost Elite, Alpha Monster Advanced, TestX Core, Testomenix, Primal Growth, Alpha Prime Elite.

I just got charged $89.97 after 14 days. Chase VISA Fraud Dept caught the charge. I am in process of contesting the charge to get refund. I expect it will be a battle. I called company, woman on phone was b#tch. Said, “Complain all you want. We have your money.” Classy huh. -Bob

In my experience, your best chance is to tell them you'll file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and/or your State Attorney General. But even then, they may still give you a problem.- Rob

Check your credit card statement for their phone number. It should be listed with the transaction. If not call your credit card company. They should be able to help you contact them. When you get in touch, tell them you want to cancel your subscription.- Rob

  1. After reading your article, I got suspicious of an item that said it was on Shark Tank, so called the number next to my charge on the bank statement. The guy that answered the phone was from the company that I ordered the product from, but he had no record of me/order.

    He suggested I call the bank and dispute the charges. A new twist!!!

    Thanks for your research…Called the bank and disputed the charges and blocked the company from any further xctions. I’m usually careful but they caught me when I was being a dummy.

  2. Great job; I appreciate the work you did on this supplement as I was reading about it the other day.
    I did not purchase as the language used by the writer did not sit well with me as it was very unprofessional.

    I then read the fine print and new then that it was a scam.

    Thank you again,

    Greg W
    1. Glad to help Greg! I’m constantly on the lookout for these types of scams, so be sure to bookmark us so you’re aware of the new ones.

      They’ll be plenty of them popping up in January!
  3. Let my guard down and got stung. If anyone also made this same mistake on 12/18/18 and remembers the name of the product and the phone number please list it on this site.

    They’ve added a new wrinkle to the scam. I supposedly signed up for two “subscriptions” which is utterly false.

    I have not received any order confirmation whatsoever. I have contacted the fraud department of my credit card and notified them.

    I called the 855 number listed above and Verizon says they are unavailable at this time. Another number listed turns out to be the Trane product center.

    Stick with products sold by legit retailers and have a track record. Let’s face it if they are dishonest enough to perpetrate fraud one can only imagine what is in any product they send.

    1. “They’ve added a new wrinkle to the scam. I supposedly signed up for two “subscriptions” which is utterly false."

      Yeah a common way they do this is via upsells….So, after you input your credit card information / address / etc. and click “next”, you’re led to another page that says something like:

      “For a limited time only, get this magic pre-workout supplement for only $3.95”.

      They’ll put a link that says something like “continue” and then underneath that it REALLY small print it will say “no thanks”.
      A lot of guys don’t see the “no thanks” link and just click the continue link, which puts them on the hook for another subscription.

      This means you have to call 2 different numbers to cancel, and will be charged twice every month if you don’t. Sometimes they’ll do like 3 – 4 upsells, and if you’re not careful and read the fine print, you could be on the hook for 4 “subscriptions” at once.

      It’s complete B.S., and I do my very best to write about these scams as I come across them.
    2. Cambodia garcena. When u click for free sample you end up signing up for about $70 a month for other vitamins too

    1. Hey Corey,
      It really depends on what you’re goals are. I would recommend you check out either a supplement called Vigrx Plus, or a supplement called Hardon Helper. The benefit to Vigrx Plus is that, while you have to take it everyday to get the best results, the effects are enormous. The benefit to Hardon Helper are that you just need to take it on an “as-needed” basis like 1 hour prior to sexual activity.

      Either one will give you GREAT results, it’s just a matter of personal preference. Here’s my reviews of each:

      Vigrx Plus –

      Hardon Helper –

      Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions.
  4. Question: Is Shark Tank aware their name is being used for these false products? If so why have they not made this known publicly?

    1. Highly unlikely. I’ve attempted to reach out to to other celebrities in the past whose likeness was being used to market supplements without their knowing.

      Never received a response.
  5. This is a total scam! I got caught in their net of trickery too!

    Mine were beauty products, Essence PH Eye serum and Essence PH Face Cream. They tricked me with the disguise of the two sisters on Shark Tank, offering a “free trial”, I paid the S&H charges only.

    I saw the ad on Instagram. Fortunately, my bank caught the two charges of $86.95 and $89.95 and declined the charges!

    The company deducted the money from my account a day early, also. I called their 866 numbers and spoke to “Customer Service” and got a cancellation # for both products, after 15 minutes of telephone warfare.

    Live it, Learn it! Thanks for helping people out, Rob.

    We need more folks like you!
    1. Hey Tamara,
      Yeah I’ve seen them use this exact same style of ad for wrinkle creams, eye creams, testosterone boosters, and even weight loss pills. Glad you got it sorted out before it turned expensive!

  6. In your opinion and expertise, are there ANY over the counter supplements that work for ED? I understand that some supplements might work for some people and not others, but are you aware of any supplement that out performs the others in regards to ED?

  7. This trutestoplatinum is complete crap. And I’m using my PC approved words …. so I don’t get sent to the bottom of the tank.

    Don’t waste your money on this s!#t
  8. For someone who considers themselve “scam smart” I got conned for $274.00 by the fact it was supposedly OKed by Chanel 10
  9. Thank you. We fell for it but when they called to say we needed to let our bank know it was legit I worried and looked into it.

  10. Thanks for info, we needed more people like you who investigates and give us the real score. More power to you!

  11. I just saw the same scam from a link in Pinterest. This time though, it wasn’t the sisters but an 84 year old guy named Dan Effers.

    Same EXACT article with only the names changed. Looked it up and this site was the first suggestion on Google.

    Good looking out brother.
  12. This article is a fraud. This is not the episode, I watched the original episode that had the lady’s from Korea and this not it.

    Y’all are just twisting the story to help sell your product and discredit the other product. There’s always going to be competition.

    Quit whining and spreading lies!!!!
    1. Chuck,
      I have screenshots of both the “kim sisters” in the fake ad above, as well as screenshots AND the ACTUAL TV episode embedded in the article. But go ahead and buy that testosterone booster and tell us all how it worked for you, we’d love to get the feedback.

  13. I just signed up and regret it already. How do I cancel the order!

    They say I will get it on the 24th of January.
    1. Hey Chuck,

      Don’t feel too bad. They’ve fooled thousands of people.

      I’m not sure which phony free trial product you tried, but you should contact the company as soon as possible and tell them you don’t want any more charges from them. They should then inform you whether or not to return the product.

      Stay strong. they will probably try to convince you to stick with it. For the number to reach them, look at the transaction on your credit card.

      There should be a contact number there.
    2. Cancel… That’s funny.

      It’s like saying, “I got mugged and I’ve decided that I want the thief to give it back ”

      Your money was taken by fraudsters, your not getting it back.
  14. One way I have used to avoid these types of scams to get your credit card info on file, is to you a prepaid credit card like the types you get at Walgreens etc. You add a (low) set amount of money to the card like $10, then place an order with the CC and get the test product with no chance of monthly rebilling because there will be no money there for them to scam.
  15. What’s a real test booster that works, I’m 45, got body fat but good physic. I’m currently going back to gym n want to beef up.

  16. I foolishly signed up today. Can you send me their phone number so I can cancel.

    I can’t find it on the net.
    Thanks in advance

  17. Thank you so much I was wondering about this scam and put my investigative hat on and figured it was a scam but u explained the “how” of it. Thank u I will be checking with you .
