I was a judge at the Chicago auditions only. I may be a judge at the Providence audition, but it is up in the air right now.

I know how it feels to have your idea rejected. Whether it was because you didn't fit the criteria they were looking or it was just a bad idea, or it is already on the market. Rejection is never fun. I don't take it lightly turning down any Inventor.


I know what you mean. I saw some inventions are like only mother could love, and you have to tell the mother no. No matter how carefully you do it, the mother will always feel shock and disappointed.

That made me laugh :lol:

On a serious note, I can understand what you mean by not wanting to hurt people, but I think as long as you offer constructive criticism, you tell them why you’re not picking their invention, then it’s not a bad thing.

You’re giving them free advice on why you think their product won’t sell enough to be worthwhile.

Sometimes on these shows judges can be really poop to people for no reason other than they can, most of the time it’s because they’ve never had to be on the other side and understand how upsetting it can be.

I agree as long as the Inventor can take criticism. I have met more than my far share that are in love with their invention and no matter what you say to them you are wrong. They spend their life's savings and have nothing to show for it but frustation.
