I hope everyone is looking forward to the upcoming auditions for the American Inventor reality television show which start in February/March 2007.
I heard some news that is a shocker. My sources are telling me that ALL of the judges from Season One have been told they will not be a part of Season Two! You heard right, none of the four judges will be coming back. Instead, the show's producers will be planning to have a panel of celebrity judges.
My sympathies with the judges who were let go as I know they took their jobs seriously and were an invaluable resource for all the contestants . I thought they all did a great job and I know that they will be missed on Season Two.
I have not been able to triple confirm this but the news is so hot, I thought you would forgive me later if I heard it wrong. I got it from credible sources but I have not heard it from enough sources yet. We are also concerned about the idea of "celebrity judges". I will try to get some more info on what types of judges they are looking at as "celebrities" and share that with you.
NEW SOURCES ARE SAYING THAT IT'S NOT ALL FOUR JUDGES. PETER JONES, A PRODUCER ON THE SHOW, WILL BE BACK FOR SEASON TWO.
I WAS FINALLY ABLE TO SPEAK WITH JUDGES FROM THE SHOW. THE FACT WAS THAT THE JUDGES WERE NOT FIRED. THEY WERE PART OF A DISCUSSION OF THE FUTURE DIRECTION OF THE SHOW. IN THOSE DISCUSSIONS, THE JUDGES DECIDED THAT THE SHOW NEEDED TO GO IN A DIFFERENT DIRECTION AND A MUTUAL DECISION WAS MADE THAT THE JUDGES SHOULD NOT RETURN FOR THE SECOND SEASON. THE ORIGINAL JUDGES THOUGHT THAT WITH THE NEW DIRECTION FOR THE SHOW WOULD SERVE INVENTORS BETTER AND WOULD ALSO CREATE A BETTER OVERALL SHOW FOR VIEWERS.
