American Inventor: Francisco Patino Is A Pure Inventor

April 27, 2006 09:27 PM by Joe Blackmon

Francisco_bikeMary Lou Quinlan mentors Jerry Wesley, Darla Davenport-Powell, and Francisco Patino.  Mary Lou Quinlan advises Darla to bring her Niya doll into the 21st Century, Francisco to work on safety issues for his double traction bike, and Jerry to make his EZ-X product easier for everyone to use.  Darla gets frustrated with her design team because she doesn’t feel they have had much success in finding the voice of Niya.  Francisco struggles with deciding if his audience should be teenagers or parents with kids.  Jerry struggles to deliver his lines for his commercial for his EZ-X.

All three inventors encounter problems during consumer testing of their inventions.  There are some electronics problems with the Niya doll, but overall the children like the doll.  Unfortunately for Jerry, a traveling salesman who takes the EZ-X on the road with him injures himself while using the product.  People also have trouble riding the double traction bike, but they eventually get the hang of it. 

Mary Lou sends Jerry Wesley and Darla Davenport-Powell home and selects Francisco Patino to go to the final four.  Francisco is reduced to tears, and Mary Lou tells Francisco, “You are the purest inventor we’ve ever seen.”  Not to undermine Jerry or Darla’s products, but Mary Lou made the right choice.  Jerry and Darla might even have more marketable products, but Francisco is the most natural inventor.

    No disrepect to Patino but with all his inventions improvements I still wouldn’t buy it. I mean come on people it took the people who tried his invention several times before learning how to use it.

    Now the Niya doll is original because…Barbie & other dolls don’t speak different langauges even if it is three.

    I just hope mary Lou doesn’t give up her dream. There is always Oprah or other TV shows.

    Bad decision Mary. Francisco has his whole life ahead. Darla doesn’t. And Darla had the most fun invention. That bike will actually cost more than 2 bikes. Now bikes are cheaper than before and a lot of people can afford it. A doll like Darla invented, is something that will improve culture knowledge in kids. A bike you can find anywhere. A doll like that, you cannot. I’d buy the doll not the bike.

    Nobody buys a doll for cultural awareness. Anyone who thinks they do is living in a closed race society. People who believe that Darla product is needed in the market place is a race-bating dolt.

    If you have ever spent time with children they are race blind. That is not to say they don’t notice skin pigment differences, they do, kids just flat-out don’t care about the race of another kid. They only care about playing and playing with other kids.

    It was refreshing to see that Mary Lou Boo Hoo did not buy into this lie about “diversity”. Best to send this Darla thing that continues the lie of diversity packing.

    Good riddance.

    Check-it Francisco:

    Yo man! Ehh holmes, how much is the product liability insurance gonna cost on your bike thingie? I think you should call it booty buddy bike – B3 or BBB that’s tight holmes

    I have to admit that my squeeze on the front in her bikini with her pedaling would look mighty fine essssssa. But, dude if she falls and damages her store bought tetangas that would be too much drama. I would be one unhappy home-boy cuz on the real I can’t be without my onion booty.

    Be Coool man

    I am glad Frasisco won. But I think the EZ gym and Naya doll will soon hit our stores or televsisions and they are probably the lucky ones who will make millions selling without the shows claws all over the products.

    I personally think Mary made the right choice. A doll that speaks three different languages isn`t really that much of an invention. Darla would be a good toy company executive but not really an inventor.

    The bike seemed like the biggest invention of all of them because it took alot to get it finished but Francisco managed to get it finished in time. Yes, it seemed to take a while for people to get the hang of it, but a lot of new products do too.

    If you have ever worked with children you’ll be able to understand Darla’s doll. Mary made the right choice, but a bike will not make this world a better place. I hope this bike doesn’t cost much. But personally, I wouldn’t buy it. I don’t like the idea of someone sitting in front of me. When you ride a bike you’re supposed to enjoy the view (depending on where you go or what you want to do with it). But I drive my bike around for exercise and to enjoy the view and I don’t want this bike to ruin my beautiful view by placing someone in front of me. Instead of enjoying the view I will actually focus more on not falling off the bike because of the person’s weight that’s in front of me. But, if I just want to play around, then it’d be fun to try it.

    Now the doll is a good idea. Sure kids just love to play with other kids, but there is a point in their life where they start noticing the difference in color of skin. For example, there are multicultural puppets out there that kids can play with. These multicultural puppets actually teach kids that being different is not a bad thing. Because of all the racism in the world, it is a good idea to teach kids to learn about other cultures and how to respect them. Believe it or not, there are kids out there who actually think being a different color is a bad thing. And not because of their parents. It is because they don’t know.

    Has anyone except me heard of a “BICYCLE BUILT FOR TWO” — except that it’s safe and fun???!!! Why is that ridiculous bike front seat attachment still on the show? When I was a little girl, I rode that way on my brother’s bike and my ankle got caught in the spokes and tore skin off and nearly broke my ankle. What a lame-brained idea, not to mention the stupid, clueless judges who think it’s a worthwhile idea. This show sucks big time. I hope a real inventor finds a way to beam them into cancellation history. It is painful and boring to watch — it’s not about true inventions — it’s about who can tell the biggest sob story and make “good TV???”. Sorry, “American Inventor”, you “invented” a ridiculous, mockery of a show that was touted to discover true inventors. Your invention (“American Inventor”) and the poor examples of “inventions” are losers. I truly hope someone will “reinvent” this type of show with judges who know what they are doing, not to mention inventions that truly take some brain cells that all working!!!!

    This show is too contrived. And how convenient, a black, mexican, next probably white, then another black or the arab guy. I hate too much p.c. stuff. I think the umbrella was useful because it rains everywhere and can be used by men, women and children. The football receiver is dumb. And out of this group I liked the portable gym. Everyone needs exercise. The doll was dumb, kids won’t want to play with it. And the bike is dumb and dangerous.
