Transcript for Ginger Zee Jumps Into the 'Shark Tank'
Plenty of folks in times square. Excited to see ginger go into the "Shark tank." See how she compares to you. Compares to you. Yes. With both of your inventions. That's coming up. Also, we have D.J. D-nice here this Friday for a deejay Friday. Getting ready for the weekend. Great music. Great guests. Jamie Foxx with us. He's the supervillain in the new "Spider-man" movie. There he is. Hey, Jamie. Now, it's time to take the plunge. Hey, jimmy. Our "Gma" swim with the sharks series. All of us are taking a chance and going before the expert entrepreneurs of the hit ABC show, "Shark tank," to pick an original idea for a product. George went first with the -- Dad-tionary. The dad-tionary, which is an app to help you -- Translates kidspeak. There you go. And you got a final score, 16 from the sharks. Not bad. Amy, you with your dog. My paw pit stop mat. Notably lower scores than George. A 13. 13. That's not bad. Yeah. Keeping track on our leaderboard. And, Lara, you go next week. Yeah. Next Friday, maybe. But ginger. Ginger is right now. She will join the ranks. She is down there in Florida, to kick it off. How did it go, ginger? Oh, robin. They're not the easiest group to go in with. And I've been dreaming of this idea for years. But it is a whole other deal to dive in with the sharks. Meet the sharks. Mark Cuban, entrepreneur, media mogul and owner of the Dallas mavericks. Barbara Corcoran, real estate mogul. Kevin o'leary, venture capitalist and software mogul. Lori Greiner, entrepreneur, queen of QVC and author of "Invent it, sell it, bank it." Daymond John, founder and CEO of fubu, fashion and branding mogul. Next into the tank, meteorologist ginger zee, with an innovative idea to stay warm. Facing tornadoes and riding out storms is my passion. And my day job leaves me in every condition imaginable. But the one thing I just can't get used to is being cold. Nothing keeps me warm. Believe me. I've tried. Everything. I use a lot of these. Little hot pockets. You've seen them before. I line my jackets with them. And I use them all over. They keep me warm. But it doesn't help on my fingers and my toes. It's cold out here, isn't it? Yes. Safety goggles on. This is going to take some research. So, my friend, science guy, shows me a cool example when really cold meets really hot. Nitrogen. Got something on you. We can't get that extreme for my product. But let's look at some ways where we can create heat. Take that 9 volt battery and touch it along the bottom here. And you'll see rapid oxidation. With new technology on the horizon and a little more research, I'm close to bringing the heat to my chilly fingers and toes when I have to be out here. Get ready for my fiery idea. It's such an honor to be with you. This is all-mine. All of the technology. All of the heat that is possible. And it works for parts of the body. But even after all this, my fingers and toes are still cold. There's a lot of people out there like me, not just crazy meteorologists. This doesn't work for us. The people who go to games. The construction workers. There has to be a better way. And I call it fiery filanges. That's right. Each of these little things fitting over fingertips and on the tops of toes. You're probably saying. And I'm going to bring a couple over to you, so you can get an idea of what's happening. Don't they have the hand pockets, the toe warmers and all that. Correct. I've used those. A lot of them. Every time I do that, I end up, still, taking the inside of my gloves, taking my fingers out and holding on because they don't warm the parts that need it. My fiery phalanges are nearly weight less. And of course, the most important, warmth. You can put iron inside of here, a and it's wrapped in plastic. The second you open them up, the oxygen makes them rust. That process makes heat. I think this is a great idea to put over your toes. That's what really gets frozen. I want slippers made out of this. You should improve the name. There you go, with the marketing. She's right this time. She's always talking about marketing. I'm not talking to you, little man. I just want to say -- Oh. Just wait until halfway during the pitch. And you start talking about marketing. I was talking to Lori, the only other smart person on the set, I was asking her, what does phalan phalanges. I think you should change it to fire fingers. People would get it. Because Barbara doesn't know that, she normally needs a speak and spell. Now, sharks, please. I think it's time to rate this. Now, the sharks will score the idea from 1 to 5. The idea, itself, I think is great. You're solving a specific need. You're doing it in an original manner. But as an idea, it's a 4. Everybody needs something to keep their hands warm and their feet warm, it has great potential. 4. Thank you. I think it would find a market almost immediately. I'm going to give it a 4-plus because I'm a wonderful guy. Yes, you are. I'm going to give it a 4-plus-plus. I'm going to give it a 4. I'm smarter than Barbara, I gave it a 4.5. That's different than a plus-plus, right. Congratulations, ginger. Good idea. They were nice. It was -- I think a great idea. They thought it was a great idea. We have a little work yet to do. And hopefully, we can have it. Way to go. That was good. Ginger, that's awesome. Way to go, ginger. Fiery phalanges. I didn't know what phalanges were. Those were really fantastic. Are you feeling good about your chances, ginger? I'm feeling great. I know that both of you did very well. But, you know? I was happy with the results. It is an idea. Has a long way to go. I would keep the name. F philanges is the one word I remember from the anatomy class. Really cashed in with the extra half point. Ginger the front-runner, with the score 20.5. On fire. No pun intended. We still have Lara and robin coming up. Way to go. Here we go. Way to go, ginger. I love the idea. I think it's great when you speak from your heart. When you go for something that you're so passionate about. I want them. That's a great idea. We want to know what you think, as well. When you've seen all of the products, you get to vote for which you like the most, on behalf of the winners, our sponsor, Dell, will donate $20,000 to two nonprofits that help small businesses and entrepreneurs. It is a pleasure to do that and to give back. You should weigh in on our "Gma" Facebook page and like our product ideas. Just saying, the paw pit stop is racking up 4,000 likes this week. I had to get something from something. A lot of dog lovers out there. And right here, too. And Lara and I will soon have our moments with the sharks. We want to thank our friends at "Fast company."
