Philadelphia, PA, May 07, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- For publicly demonstrating a visible act of chivalry and serving as a strong role model for today's young men, Robert Herjavec, one of the stars on the ABC program "Shark Tank," has been awarded the honor of "Chivalry Role Model of the Month" for May, 2014.
The honor, presented by BringChivalryBack.com, recognizes noteworthy gestures of chivalry, grandiose or small, which demonstrate the impact that positive gestures by men can have.
During the episode of "Shark Tank" which aired April 18th entrepreneur Chase Hoyt of Intelli-Stopper Technologies was offering the sharks a glass of wine to prove the value of his invention. As most of the contestants on the show typically do, he started serving Mr. Herjavec seated on the right and then moved to the left. As Robert was given the first glass he immediately passed it to Lori Greiner seated next to him. Lori responded with a smile and a "thank you." Mr. Hoyt recognized the importance of the gesture and said, "Ladies first."
Relationship expert John Rasiej of BringChivalryBack.com remarks, "Even small gestures of chivalry can have a big impact when they're seen as a natural thing a man offers. It shows the man as a gentleman of distinction. Anytime we can see positive role models displaying admirable qualities, more people become aware and appreciate the value of that behavior."
Mr. Rasiej, founder of BringChivalryBack.com, selected the Shark Tank star as the awardee not because the gesture itself was grandiose but for how naturally and smoothly it was offered. Having chivalry displayed on National television helps spread the message in a powerful way to many people.
BringChivalryBack.com aspires to rekindle the sincere practice of courteous behavior by men toward women. More information is available at www.BringChivalryBack.com and at the blog on that website.
