    What did Doug stake his reputation on?

    So what do you think was the 12th invention that moved on to the $50,000 round? The one Doug staked his reputation on and thought would be the final winner.

    I remember him praising someone to the surprise of the other judges. He leaped to speak first and was over the top in his enthusiam. This show is not good enough to take the time to go back to previous episodes on my Tivo. I am wracking my brain. I can almost see it.

    Process of elimination has got to give us the answer.

    sackmaster 2000
    headliner - no
    toner belt- no
    double traction bike- no
    receiver's training pole
    restroom door clip-no
    word ace-no
    flush pure
    un brella
    ez-x portable gym-no
    here comes Niya doll-definately not!
    spherical safety seat-no

    So the question really is, what inventions were the other judges against?

    My guess is the flush pure. I am beginning to think I actually remember that.

    Remember that he had to convince his collegues by putting his reputation on the line to get this invention into the finals. I think all of the judges were onboard with the car seat. That would not have been a hard sell, at all.

    The Flush Pure

    Everybody,
    I think that for sure it was the Flush Pure. Because
    he was trying to push them forward because all the
    judges were disgusted with the "go to Mexico" comment.
    Plus that is the kind of thing that Doug was into!

    I don't remember the Mexico comment. What was it? And as you see, I agree with you.

    The Amercian public is obsessed with germs and cleaning. He knows that.

    Awhile back an experiment placed toothbrushes in every room in the house, then tested them for bacteria. The kitchen toothbrushes held the most. But never mind, the public wants anything to rid their homes of germs, whatever they are anyway.

    Have you gotten an investor to help you produce that cooler yet? I would think that would happen.

    When the judges asked what he'd do with the money if he won, the guy made a glib comment about "going to Mexico" with it. The judges were not amused.
    It was me. I let the dogs out.

    Ah yes, I remember that now. It struck me that the inventor did not get it that they wanted to hear "put the money into his product".

    No not yet Dogbat,
    But we are working on it real hard!!!

    When Joe and Jenny (Flush Pure) were asked what they would
    do with the $50,000 He said he would go to Mexico. He is a
    performer and a comedian in his "real" life and I guess he thought
    that was funny. But Ed was real bent about it!! And
    said if that was his answer then he just lost!

    I agree about the germaphobia of American.

    They were very nice people and Dwight and I liked them a lot.
