AfterShark: The guys behind College Foxes on being called 'pigs' on ABC's 'Shark Tank'

They failed to hook the Sharks, but they're not packing it in yet. Nick Friedman and Omar Soliman got torn to shreds on ABC's Shark Tank after they demanded $1 million for only 10% of their company, College Hunks Hauling Junk, in exchange for an investment in a co-ed spin-off venture.

"You're pigs," spat investor Kevin O'Leary. "And pigs get slaughtered."

The childhood friends-turned-business partners talk to WalletPop's Jason Cochran about whether they regret turning down Robert Herjavec's final offer, what's in store for College Foxes Packing Boxes now, and if Shark Tank's premise is for real or just another showbiz set-up.

Then there's the concern over whether their College Foxes idea was sexist to begin with, a question that caused FUBU mogul Daymond John to bail on any involvement.

Listen in as these brash young entrepreneurs dish about their harrowing dip in the Shark Tank.

Thought those guys were fools to turn the offer down. They lost the expertise, connections and business muscle - it wasn't about the money - it was (should be) about the partnership that leverages the business up to the next level.
