Pitchmen Episode Seven with Billy Mays Now Playing

I’m still avidly following Pitchmen, and I’m glad that YouTube member Gadgetglanman7 is as well, but I thought Pitchmen episode seven (originally aired on May 27, 2009) was a little thin. If I didn’t have a burning desire to learn more about the DRTV industry, I’m not sure I’d still be watching. Maybe a 13-show season was a little too ambitious. Anyway, I found this episode a little painful in spots, because I’d never want my debacles documented on a basic cable reality show. Forbes Riley seems like a very nice person, but this episode gives me the impression that she became too emotionally attached to her fitness product to make rational business decisions. She rejects good advice from the experts about lowering the price point for the Spin Gym, with unfortunate results.

Also, why don’t budding inventors and entrepreneurs ever seem to perform ftrademark searches BEFORE they settle on a name for their new product?

  1. Rude — I have Forbes’ Juicer that she sells with Jack Lalanne and I lost over 30lbs eating healthy and a bunch of fitness products from HSN — you guys are idiots — get a life — at least she has one and she’s really fun to watch — I am sure she’ll figure out her SpinGym — but geez guys ———

  2. here here! i agree. she’s such a freakin idiot. in fact i emailed customer support at myspingym.com her idiot site where she is selling the thing (still) for 30 bucks PLUS 10 bucks shipping and handeling! she cares more about the price of HER product than selling product. what a freakin moron. i have no sympathy for her.

  3. So true. Forbes Riley acted like a big baby. Maybe she would be “driving a Bentley” if she would have listened to the guy with the effing track record. She is what she is… annoying as all hell.
