Invention Convention
Oprah talks about her search for the next big idea.
In February 2007, Oprah teamed up with QVC, the world's largest televised shopping network, and launched her search for the next big idea.

Over the next three months, more than 6,000 innovative men and women traveled to conventions in Chicago, Los Angeles and Philadelphia to pitch their products.

The inventors may have shared a common dream, but every idea was unique. The QVC judges saw everything from inventive ideas for the home—like a backyard breeze ceiling fan mister—to luxuries for the loo.

Entrants had just 10 minutes to convince the judges that their ideas were best-sellers, but only eight could move on to the final round!

Now, the final decision rests in the hands of Oprah's audience. To help them pick a winner, Oprah has brought in two celebrity judges who aren't afraid to speak their minds!
