Does anyone remember the names of the companies that developed the prototype for SHERYL McDonald - The Un-brella (now the In-brella) or for ERIC Thompson - Receiver's Training Pole (now the Catch)?

I'll appreciate your help. Thanks!

Admittedly I didn't watch like a hawk, but being curious myself I had an ear out, and I honestly don't think ABC said who the groups were. That seemed strange to me, but not as much as they did the next week.

The Niya doll was developed by "T2 Design," they said that several times audibly, put the name on screen, and had it on the wall in the conference room. The bike was made by "id Group," they said that name twice, showed it onscreen and had a camera shot of the building sign. But the portable weights, they didn't say (unless it slipped in beneath my notice). No name in the voiceover, no name by the contestant, no onscreen text. And when they showed Jerry walking through the door, the camera was carefully angled so as not to show the space over the door where the name would be.

So I guess there must be some deal over who does and does not get shown. Which means for some reason we're not supposed to know who those prototypers were.
