On Episode 8 of Steve Harvey's FUNDERDOME, a new batch of aspiring inventors hoping to win over a live studio audience to fund their ideas, products or companies include: a cloth that allows pets to be carried; a unique scratching post for cats; a subscription service for cosmetically challenged produce; shirts that allow men or women to hold babies close to the body; and a device that prevents mold from ruining hair weaves. Hosted by Steve Harvey, in each episode of Steve Harvey's FUNDERDOME, the inventors will go head to head, pitching their products to the studio audience. The studio audience will represent the "customer," and since the customer is always right, they will be voting to determine the winner.
