In this weekend’s episode of the weekly ABC reality show “Shark Tank,” Corcoran Group founder Barbara Corcoran joined with another investor to fund an exercise machine that helps people do push-ups — on the condition that the project’s inventor lose 30 pounds. Corcoran turned down the opportunity to invest in a funeral planning business, a granola making company and a business that designs surgical masks with designs like pig faces on them.
