They're not going to be millionaires. The wipes are not patented. They're a good idea, but if they take off, the larger co's will rip off the idea.

As the advisors on the show said, the only thing proprietary they have is the name and the image of the grease monkey. They have knowledge and desire and passion, and that is worth something. If I see them at the store, I will buy some, just to reward them following their dream and staying trapped on the gerbil wheel of life.
