Has anyone checked out the American Inventor on ABC? The series just started up again for its second season. Talk about the ultimate Gadget Freak! At the end of the season, the show touts itself as having the ability (with a little help from viewers) to uncover the hottest new product and make one struggling inventor’s dream come true. The winner also receives $1 million in cold hard cash!
Casting calls were held in six major cities across the country looking for the ultimate inventor. The panel of judges, which includes George Foreman, Peter Jones, Pat Croce and Sara Blakely, will narrow down the initial entries and choose one finalist from each city who will receive $50,000 to further develop their invention. Then, they come back together for the semi-final round and America will vote (think American Idol) for one of three finalists. The winner gets a $1 million prize and the opportunity to make his or her dream come true!
