Dragons’ Den fans gutted for man who missed knockout pitch due to wedding day

Dragon’s Den fans have expressed their pity for an entrepreneur who missed his big pitch on the BBC show after it fell on his wedding day.

As eager gaming gurus Dan Wiseman and Joe Mills began pitching their play-at-home immersive mystery puzzle games, the duo informed the Dragon’s that their equal partner Tristan was unable to make the show due to his nuptial duties.

Fans were left feeling even more sympathy for the missing groom after his pals admitted that they skipped their best man duties to appear on the show instead.

“There are three of us but our friend Tristan couldn’t be here today as he’s getting married.

“We’ve foregone best man duties to be here today in the den pitching our business,” the pair told a shocked audience, as they asked for £75k in exchange for 7.5% of their gaming business.

Sympathetic fans took to Twitter to congratulate Tristan and commiserate him on the missed opportunity and the loss of his two best mates on his special day.

“Forgone best man duties… He ain't a best man then…I’m OUT #dragonsden,” raged one viewer.

Another added: Congratulations Tristan! Shame about your mates tho.”

While a third agreed: “Tristan’s wedding date is a bummer! Poor guy. An no best men, what a bummer!” followed by a sad face emoji.

Dan and Joe went on to pitch their award winning mystery puzzle game The Detective Society.

The game included boxes packed with clues such as maps and physical evidence which they say creates a “fully immersive experience for the player and makes them feel like a real detective.”

Dragon Sara Davies, who has a track record in investing in virtual escape room ideas was keen to find clues that the concept could be a breakout business.

It wasn’t a total loss for Tristan who will be pleased to find out that Sara ultimately partnered up with fellow Dragon Deborah Meaden, with both investors bagging a 12.5% stake in the business after putting up half the money each.

“Smashing pitch. At least they missed their best mate’s wedding for a win!” a viewer commented on the deal.

Elsewhere on the episode viewers saw Molly Masters pitch her female led reading subscription box Books That Matter, and Peter Waine try his luckwith ökoform – a business that makes heated desks – to the five fiery investors, thought both were unsuccessful in bagging a deal.
