5 Reasons to Dive Into Shark Week

by Sarah Ruhlman

After what felt like an endless countdown, Shark Week is finally here!

I am so excited to join in like so many other die-hard fans who are tuning in to the Discovery Channel. The television event, Shark Week is great to binge watch a weeks worth of great content and interesting information about one of the ocean’s infamous creatures. This is an extra special year because it is the 30th year anniversary of Shark Week, making it the longest running must-see summer television event. Fun fact, I’m actually 30 years old too so it looks like Shark Week has been happening since I was born!

If you haven’t found yourself loving Shark Week yet I’ve got a few reasons everyone needs to tune in! But first, lets just understand that it is 100% acceptable to watch all week long. That’s right…

You Have a Valid Excuse to Binge Watch…From Start to Finish

This week you don’t have to feel bad about sitting in front of the TV 24/7 because you’re not alone. Thousands of people are binge watching Shark Week because it only happens once a year. You don’t want to miss this!

Here’s a rundown of the binge-worthy schedule:

Fun Facts

Shark Week includes a great deal of helpful information and fun facts for viewers about sharks that you would never know unless you tuned in this week. You can even learn about how to survive a shark attack!

Celebrities are Involved

One of my favorite things about Shark Week is that I can watch celebrities come face to face with these notorious creatures. Tune in to 2018’s Shark Week and you will see celebrities like Ronda Rousey, Bear Grylls, Shaquille O’Neal, Guy Fieri, Rob Gronkowski, Lindsey Vonn, Aaron Rodgers, and Kansas City’s hometown comedian Rob Riggle!

Who remembers when Michael Phelps swam against that shark? Crazy!

Shark Pups

My two favorite things combined, Shark Week and puppies! Visit Discovery.com for adorable pictures of dogs dressed up like sharks to celebrate the event. Does is get cuter than this?!

Crest is Promoting a Healthy Smile

Did someone say 15 rows of teeth? If anyone should know the importance of healthy teeth, it’s Sharks. While we have only 32 teeth, a great white shark has about 300 arranged in multiple rows! Crest is sponsoring this year’s 30th anniversary of Shark Week. Crest Pro-Health toothpaste is the only toothpaste accepted by the American Dental Association to treat all seven attributes:

  • Plaque
  • Gingivitis
  • Cavities
  • Sensitivity
  • Tartar
  • Whitening
  • Freshens Breath

I love when I see brands I use working with events I love. Crest Pro-Health helps you advance to healthier gums and stronger teeth with benefits that help protect against areas dentists check most. I have been using Crest Pro-Health for a few months now and honestly don’t think my teeth have ever felt or looked better.

Crest has created a fun video to help those die-hard fans celebrate Shark Week!

Plus, lucky for all of you I’ve got a$2 off coupon for Crest Pro-Health that you can use! In order to claim your computer just make sure to either sign up for P&G Everyday or log in to access the digital brand saver.


I hope you enjoyed the scoop on my favorite reasons to watch Shark Week. Tune in to the Discovery Channel this week to watch all of the best ‘JAW’ dropping moments!
