their winning product on the saturday morning "q" show. our judges who get to decide this thing. anna baker, qvc's director of global merchandising. jill martin, the creative correct director for qvc's g.i.l.i. and mr. al roker who is mr. al roker. now up, tuesday's winner. in is yair reiner from brooklyn, new york. my product is the fry wall. it tackles the worst part of cooking, the mess. letting you cook anything from a mountain of spinach to fried chicken, while keeping your stove top protected from spills and splatter. >> yair, come on out. i love those doors. i do. nice to see you, yair. take your place. hang on one second. now, it is time to introduce or reintroduce wednesday's winner. >> my name is kevin bunn.
8:35 am

8:36 am
now, from thursday. nice to have you here. >> thank you. >> you guys all ready? i want to give our judges one more chance to ask a couple of questions. >> congratulations on being here. our viewers are loving your products. i have a question for frywall. a lot of people have splatter screens already. and we were discussing this. how is it different for someone who has that? >> a splatter screen does a decent job when it's on the pan. but if you have to flip a burger, you can't get in without taking it off, in which point the splatter goes everywhere. the splatter screens capture some steam. you can't reduce a sauce very well. and if you're frying a steak, you're not going to get a good sear on it. and you can't use it to toss a lot of spinach because you can't get into the pan. this is a great way to contain the mess from a stir fry, greens, anything of that kind. >> any other questions. >> i think we're good. looks great. >> no? not for anybody else? >> i thought you meant -- sockdock.
8:37 am
you talk about hanging it up. but for me, closet space is a premium. where can you use this? >> you can hang it anywhere. it has a hanger. it will hang on a doorknob. if you hang it in the closet, you no longer need a sock drawer. my 3-year-old uses a sockdock. i can't get her to put the clothes in the hamper, but she uses the sockdock. it helps with the motor schools. we're happy to get her to do that. >> here's what we're going to do. we're going to give our judges time to deliberate. don't take too much time. you start to do that. krista, how does it feel? have you been an entrepreneurial person your whole life? >> i sure have. i've been inspired by my mother, my grandmother. and i was actually running another business when i got this inspiration for the bootband. i immediately closed that business and began working on a three-year process to invent this product. >> somebody's life is about to

role as a complicated guy, dealing with his mental illness, in the indy film "aardvark," alongside jon hamm and jenny slate. >> let's talk about "aardvark" first. what was special about this role? and talk about it for people that don't know. >> sure. i like relationships in this smoo movie. it's essentially the story of three people who are lost to themselveses and ultimately find their way to each other. and two brothers and a therapist. that's always a good dynamic. >> two brothers and a therapist. >> one of the brothers, the brother that i mri, is struggling with mental health issues. which i thought was relevant and interestingly dealt with in this story. and there's levity to it. there's humor and love in the story. and i thought those were all -- it's well-written by a good friend of mine, who wrote and directed the film. it's his feature debut. i produced the movie, as well.
9:50 am
it's in line with other projects that i've championed in the past. >> jon hamm plays your brother. and you see him in other people. >> that's right. we don't really know the character i play called josh norman. and we don't know in certain aspects whether some of the relationships he has in the movie are real or figments of his imagination. and that's part of his struggle and part of what he's dealing with in his own mental illness. and he's been abandoned. his brother left years ago. and is a successful actor and sends money. and josh is left to fend for himself in a lot of ways. and so, part of that manifests in these relationships with people that he might be making up, as projections of his brother, who he's really longing for and really looking to find again. and to bring back in his life. >> you must have had to study mental illness. >> yeah. and part of the story also, is that -- it's not specific about what he's suffering from because
9:51 am
he doesn't have the resources. and i think, you know, in a -- as we look at our own society, it's interesting that people are really struggling in tern wcert ways to find the resources to diagnose and treat properly. many different mental illnesses have different manifest nations. one of the things we are exploring is josh doesn't know what he's up against. but he's really holding on and doing his best to be productive and a relevant member of society in many ways as he can. >> i was going to be a psychiatrist. >> really? >> so, these things fascinate me. and you're right, it's hard to diagnosis a lot of these things. a lot of blurred lines. and it's important. >> that's a whole other segment. i want to hear that story. >> i was telling him. it's good when gloria is a fan. >> i'm a hajjuge fan.
