Kendra Scott, the Austin entrepreneur who owns a billion-dollar jewelry empire, will be the next guest judge on ABC's "Shark Tank" in its newest Las Vegas season.
Scott, along with TOMS shoes owner Blake Mycoskie, will appear on various episodes of the show's 12th season, which airs on Oct. 16. "Shark Tank" judges listen to business pitches from small-time entrepreneurs and assist them in making their companies successful.
This is Scott's latest endeavor after becoming a professor of practice at The University of Texas at Austin. Her business, Kendra Scott, LLC, was started in 2002 and puts her among only 16 women in the U.S. to carry the title of founder of a company valued at $1 billion.

Tesla is not recalling almost 1.1 million vehicles because windows may close with excessive force and pinch a driver or passenger, according to a Tesla filing, which says the windows' automatic reversal system may not react correctly after detecting an obstruction.
The Austin company's internal testing revealed the issue in August. Tesla filed a "Part 573 Safety Recall Report" with the NHTSA identifying the issues, outlining a "recall plan," and listing affected models and years, including "certain vehicles":
- Model S 2021-2022
- Model 3 2017-2022
- Model X 2021-2022
- Model Y 2020-2022 (including some that were made in the Austin factory)
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed Nov. 15.
