"Episode 105" - The seed-funding competition reality series "Steve Harvey's FUNDERDOME" featuring two aspiring inventors going head-to-head to win over a live studio audience to fund their ideas, products or companies airs SUNDAY, AUGUST 13 (9:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network. The audience will represent the customer, and since the customer is always right, they will be voting to determine the winner. This week's inventions and the aspiring inventors that will go head-to-head are:

· The Ultimate Tailgator Cooler - a cooler with drink dispensers, a grill, and a Bluetooth speaker. Inventor: Charles from Harper Woods, Michigan

· QB54 - a tailgate chair that turns into a goalpost for a high-energy football game. Inventors: Frank and Mike from Kendall Park, New Jersey

· ZeroSweat - a once-a-week antiperspirant for people who sweat excessively. Inventor: Tyler from Layton, Utah

Before revealing the results of the crowd's majority vote, host Steve Harvey, the highly popular stand-up comedian, actor, author and Emmy Award-winning game show host, will present the inventors with a major dilemma. One of the inventors is allowed to cash out and walk away for a lesser amount. If an inventor cashes out, they forgo the opportunity to win the whole cash prize for that round - a good move if they lost the crowd vote, but a bad move if they would have won it.

"Steve Harvey's FUNDERDOME" is produced by MGM Television and internationally distributed by MGM. The executive producers are Mark Burnett, Leslie Garvin and Barry Poznick.
