Good at what? Looking and sounding like a horses-****?

But you couldn't clean the old ones like this one apparently.

I bought a different brand of that type of thing a years ago. It's a great product.

Wow, I didn't know my dishwasher couldn't clean mine. I need to upgrade!

I think Vince sells his own crap. He finds stuff that already exists but doesn't sell, and then pushes it with his own commercials. He doesn't just get paid to sell other people's stuff. I'm not sure if this is how Billy May's operates though... anyone know?

I actually watched that Pitchmen show with Billy Mays last week. It was actually pretty interesting. Basically people invent things and then pitch them to Billy Mays and the other infomercial guy on Pitchmen. They basically interview them, check out the product, do some of their own product testing, and then decide if they'll put their name with the product the person brought in.

The inventors actually pay them to make the infomercials for them.
