Kevin O'Leary, Mark Cuban, Robert Herjavec, Lori Greiner, Daymond John, and Barbara Corcoran have spent more than a decade on-air going head-to-head in the tank. But every now and then, a guest investor steps in to shake things up.

So, what is Kevin Hart's net worth?

Reports estimate that Kevin is worth $200 million. However, the comedian comes from humble beginnings.

Kevin’s television and film career kicked off in the early 2000s, but it wasn’t until 2009 when he began touring the country with his act I’m a Grown Little Man and, later, Laugh at My Pain. Kevin previously revealed that he was “broke” when he filmed his first comedy special.

“I didn’t have money, but I had an opportunity. I kept telling myself that this opportunity would be the one to get me where I needed to be. I seized the moment and never looked back,” he captioned a candid Instagram post.

According to Kevin, he relied on financial help from his late mother, Nancy Hart, while he focused on getting his big break.

The sharks may have met their match in Kevin, who will surely bring the funny. Although Mr. Wonderful has the big bucks, it’s Kevin’s charm and comedic skills that will certainly give these sharks a run (or swim) for their money.
