The American Inventor Twelve Finalists Are…

April 13, 2006 09:34 PM by Joe Blackmon

Francisco_patinoAfter twenty minutes of unnecessary recaps, the top 50 American Inventors each get one minute to pitch their inventions again to the judges.  The first couple of inventors struggle through their presentations, exasperating the judges.  Doug Hall tells the other judges, “Guys, we have a real problem here.  This is embarrassing, they don’t get it, they’re not selling it.”  (If Doug had wanted passion, then perhaps he shouldn’t have turned away BulletBall.)

Doug gives an emotional speech to the remaining inventors, telling them “There’s a million dollars at stake right now, ok, and if you’re going to get into something like this you’ve got to want it.”  It seems to work as the presentations quickly improve, and the judges are able to select the top twenty-four inventors. 

Each of the top twenty-four inventors gets yet another chance to plead their case in front of the judges.  Most of the inventors seem to have a sob story of how they have given up everything for their invention.  After choosing eleven of the finalists, an argument erupts over number twelve.  Doug Hall says he will stake his entire reputation on one invention, and Mary Lou Quinlan gets upset and tells Doug that “you don’t get to be the smartest person in the room.”  However, Doug continues to fight for the invention, and the other judges finally agree. 

The top twelve American Inventors are Mark Martinez and the Sackmaster 2000,  Jodi Pliszka and the Headliner, Robert Amore and the Toner Belt, Francisco Patino and the Double Traction Bike,  Erik Thompson and the Receiver’s Training Pole, Sharon Clemens and the Restroom Door Clip, Edward Hall and the Word Ace, Joseph and Jenny Safuto and the Flush Pure, Sheryl McDonald and the Un-Brella, Jerry Wesley and the EZ-X Portable Gym, Darla Davenport and the Here Comes Niya Doll, and Janusz Liberkowski and the Spherical Safety Seat.  Each of the twelve finalists gets $50,000 to develop their invention, but only one will earn $1,000,000.

    Disgusting! Here we go again this week the Bald Short Fat Arrogant Guy (BSFAG) did it again.

    He has no clue and yet he slams everyone with his overly amazing arogance. Do you think he has ever looked in the mirror? I think only Mandisa was fatter but at least she did not have that hideous triple chin.

    He sits there with his arms crossed on top of his fat belly looking at these hard working people with his rolls of fat and those dumb-ass Hawaiian shirts. He’s passing judgment as if someone anointed him God! It was somewhat refreshing to see mousy the female emotional basket case go after him. He is without a doubt the single most disgusting person on television. Get this Bald Short Fat Arrogant Guy (BSFAG) off my TV.

    To use Hall’s own words; “I am looking for a reason” he should stay on TV and I can find none.

    A message for Simon, dude you must act NOW and fire Doug Hall.

    Well at least kudos to Simon for putting someone more annoying than himself on television.

    As for the show I thought I was watching a friggin funeral. Next time put out an advisory…
    “Warning, may reduce you to tears! Viewer discretion advised.”

    I have been watching the show because I like Simon. But this show is not showing any promise. There is nothing exciting about it. And it was run only a few weeks and it is like watching re-runs already.

    Most of these things on the show aren`t even inventions. Anyone can put a voice chip in a doll that allows it to talk multible languages. The only ones I really like are the handle bar bike thing, the Sackmaster, and the

    Too many sob stories. I’m certain most are made up just to move forward. I think a majority of the production budget goes to sad background music.
    A lift for me was the guy who said he’s going to Mexico with the $50,000. At least he gave an honest sob-free response. I think his invention is the germ filtering toilet seat that stops the harmful affects of bacteria jumping out of your toilet after each flush. I’m getting one.

    The Mexico answer was honest, I agree. I mean Doug asked what he would do if he gave him a check of 50k. He should’ve asked specificly what would he do with his INVENTION if he gave him 50k

    OH MY GOD. I cannot believe when I saw that crap on American inventor and even feel more disturbed when it was choosen to final 12.
    I have an un-brella at home and it’s much better and imporved one. I bought it from china town. Did the judge know there are similar product in the market already?????? I hope they found out.

    I think that Eric’s invention is the greatest. I feel that he should add to his statement that Pop Warner, High School’s and Colleges would be the ones that he would be targeting to see this invention. I want to see him win. My son played football for 14 years and I have watched football since 1968. This invention would be bennificial to all school’s and kids in Pop Warner. I have seen so many footballs dropped and if they had this to help them learn how to catch to ball, we might see less dropped balls and more awesome catches!!!!!
