Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Daymond John, Kevin O’Leary, and Lori Greiner held nothing back when it came to evaluating the anchors’ pitches and scored each one on a scale of 1 and 5. Who will survive and who will get eaten alive?
George Stephanopoulos jumped into the tank first.
George’s Pitch: ‘Dad-tionary’
Stephanopoulos made his pitch: “Dad-tionary,” an app that’s full of the latest kid-speak to help keep dads up to date on the latest lingo, increase their cool factor and bridge the communication gap.
The idea for “Dad-tionary” was born when Stephanopoulos, a doting dad who thought he had a “pretty good grasp of the English language,” saw the abbreviation, “IMHO,” in a headline and had no idea what it meant. Stumped, his daughter, Elliott, giggled at him and had the answer: “In my humble opinion.”
How It Works
When you type a word or phrase into the app (or say one), the meaning of the terms as well as an example of how it could be used in a sentence will come up. There is also a way to store terms you have looked up, quizzes to keep track of progress, and a game where kids and parents can face off against one another.
“This app is personal, practical, and fun – and ‘ICYDK’ — in case you didn’t know – a lot handier than these,” Stephanopoulos said, throwing flashcards in the trash, for effect at the presentation. “Who’s with me?”
