Steven Bartlett of Dragons’ Den talks about his ’emotional’ first day on the show: ‘So competitive.’

Steven Barlett, a newcomer to DRAGONS’ DEN, revealed the things that surprised him the most on his “emotional” first day on the show.

On Tuesday, Deborah Meaden, a veteran of the BBC reality show Dragons’ Den, and newcomer Steven Bartlett joined hosts Alex Jones and Jermaine Jenas on The One Show to discuss the new season of the BBC reality show.

Steven is the team’s newest and youngest member.

He described his first day on the show as “emotional” and revealed what happens behind the scenes that viewers don’t see.

“Oooh, lots of tension there! It’s the return of Dragons’ Den!” Alex exclaimed after watching a trailer for the new series.

“Steven Bartlett, the youngest Dragon to ever enter the den! Was it everything you hoped for?”

“I’d say it was because I assumed Dragons’ Den was real,” Steven explained.

“Is that real? Are they investing their money? Do they have to make a decision right away? Are these real entrepreneurs, or do I have to meet them in the green room or something?”

“But everything you see on that show is 100 percent real, so it’s my money, and these are real entrepreneurs, but what you don’t see is how emotional I felt being in the room.”

“And I’ll tell you what, I didn’t expect it to be so competitive!” “When an entrepreneur walks in the door and you want the business, something strange happens in the den.”

“We all fall silent because we don’t know who’ll go first, and then you feel it.”

“I’m trying to look through Deborah’s diary to see what she’s written down in order to figure out if she’ll make an offer.”

“And I know they’re going to go,” he explained, “so someone will break, like ranks, and make an offer, and then it’ll be like chess.”

Jermaine asked Deborah why she keeps coming back to the show, to which she replied, “It’s such a great show, it’s what I do, it’s what I love.”

“After about two days of retirement, I realized, ‘You know what? I miss business.’

“Being able to do that on television is creative, fun, and challenging.”
