Plot Synopsis

Engineering experts Deanne Bell and George Zaidan scour the United States looking for amazing ideas they're convinced can make big money. They track down the inventors and give them a real chance to bring their ideas and dreams to life. The inventors are given the resources and help they need to take their products from concept to reality, building, testing, and perfecting their products for the biggest pitch of their lives. In each one-hour episode, Deanne and George help two entrepreneurs, including: Samantha DeMaria, of Hoffman Estate, IL, who hopes to make her fortune by launching the Marinara Tower, an Italian take on the chocolate fountain; best friends Anthony Gonzalez and Bob Merriman of Cypress, CA, who are looking to beat out the competition with Fit Guard, a high-tech mouth guard designed to protect athletes from harmful concussions; married duo Shane and Maria Freeman, of Beaumont, TX, who have come up with an automated Snow Cone Kiosk; four friends from Encinitas, CA, who've invented the Skull Cap, a product that could save skateboarders from serious injuries; Puerto Rican resident John Perdue, who is focused on the Packbow, a reinvention of an age-old hunting tool; Enayat Motahedy of Centreville, VA, who looks to launch the Twisty Tint, a sophisticated variation on the car window shade; and many more people with a second chance to turn their first-class ideas into products. Season 2 of MAKE ME A MILLIONAIRE INVENTOR premiered on Thursday, October 6, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT on CNBC, as hosts Deanne Bell and George Zaidan return to help inventors take their products to the next level. In the season opener, "Life Savers," two inventions with one lofty goal: save lives. Deanne meets an emergency nurse who has invented the Goldilocks Valves, a device that could revolutionize the way nurses and paramedics perform CPR. While George teams up with a retired firefighter who has spent the past sixteen years developing the Aqua Blaster, a harness designed to make fighting fires safer and easier for those on the front line. Other inventions in the eight-episode second season include: a hard hat with a solar powered fan system; a process to bring restaurant quality dry aged steak into the home, for a fraction of the price; and more.
On Thursday, December 1, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT, CNBC premiered the Season 2 finale of MAKE ME A MILLIONAIRE INVENTOR. In the season ender, "Just What the Doctor Ordered," the mentors take on inventors who want to make a mint off the medical field. Deanne meets a former combat medic looking to prevent fatal blood loss on the battlefield with the X-Suit. While George advises a pair of engineering students who hope their invention, the Suture Self, can make getting stitches safer and faster.
