You’ve more than likely seen or heard about the current TV infomercial for the Extenze male enhancement products<.  It features a guy and girl host as they inform viewers about how males can make that "certain part of the male body bigger".  Many male viewers may wonder if it really works, but most likely they are more intrigued by the bubbly and busty, sexy Extenze girl who helps host the infomercial.  Her name is Bridgetta Tomarchio, and she currently works as an actress and model out in Los Angeles, California.  Bridgetta’s been in all sorts of movie and TV gigs and has done lots of modeling including lingerie, bikini swimsuit and even some creative nude pics of the natural blond naked in front of the camera.  She’s been a cover girl for “That’s Hot! Magazine” which featured her nearly naked in its pages (cover shot below).

She’s been on “The West Wing”, “Judging Amy” and “Lingo”, as well as a model in HBO’s series Entourage. Bridgetta goes beyond just acting and is far from the seemingly ditzy hostess she portrays for Extenze. Her credits include being a production assistant on shows like Scare Tactics and Dawson’s Creek.

This hottie currently is in the social media loop online as she has her own Bridgetta Tomarchio Myspace profile and you can find the Bridgetta Tomarchio Facebook here.

In the above photo from the infomercial, Bridgetta is interviewing three other babes on the couch about whether or not “size really matters” to them when it comes to sexual performance.  Extenze is supposed to help males enhance and enlarge that “certain part of their anatomy” so that it can lead to more enjoyment for females.  There’s also a female version of the product for sustained sexual enjoyment. Previous versions of the Extenze infomercial featured porn star celebrity, Ron Jeremy. Extenze, just like any other pill, supplement or health product should be taken after consulting with a doctor.

Back2Life – 12 Minute Back Pain Solution

Sunday, July 12th, 2009

Bella Shaw, former CNN anchor, hosts the Back2Life infomercial about a product which offers the “12 Minute Back Pain Solution”. Bella starts out with the staggering stats about back pain; 8 out of 10 people suffer from back pain at some point in their life, it’s second most common neurological ailment in the US behind only headaches, it’s the 2nd leading reason for work absences behind the common cold, and over $50 billion is spent annually for chronic low back pain relief. Bella says a new device has experts in Europe “jumping up and down for joy”.

That device is of course the Back2Life machine, the 12 Minute Back Pain solution. It’s been used by back pain specialists in Europe to help provide relief for chronic back pain relief. Dr. Marc Darrow joins Bella Shaw in the infomercial to discuss Back2Life. Dr. Darrow is an expert on pain management and an assistant professor at the UCLA school of medicine. Darrow demonstrates the Back 2 Life and how back pain sufferers have compression in their spine and vertebrae. Dr. Darrow says heat and pressure don’t help open up the vertebrae, but Back2Life will. It allows oxygen and blood to flow to the area of the back that needs it most.

How it Works:
The Back2Life machine uses a technique called Continuous Passive Motion. The process relaxes tight muscles, opens compressed vertebrae and naturally aligns the spine to help ease back pain discomfort. The Back2Life is said to help people no matter what their back pain situation may be, short term or long term. Basically the person using the device lays on their back with their legs bent at the knee area resting on the device. It provides the motion described above to help relax the muscles an works on aligning the spine in a 12 minute time period. The motion is very gentle with no strain or stretching involved.

What’s included & Cost: The Back2Life justifies the cost of their device by saying it’s more inexpensive when compared to the many therapy appointments, mattresses, pain pills, and other expensive items like those $3000 Human Touch massage chairs. The Back2Life sells in Europe for over $600 according to the ad, but through this infomercial it can be yours for just 5 easy payments of $39.95 plus S&H. Also included is a special Firmapedic pillow, designed to keep your head in proper alignment while you sleep.

Customer testimonials: Various customers happily pronounce that they’ve received Back2Life back pain relief, and the device works for them each and every time they use it. One man who had suffered from back pain for 20 years, said his pain was completely gone after using the device. Another woman struggled with back pain following her pregnancy and was relieved by using the 12 minute solution. There’s several other testimonials given from various people. In fine print at the bottom of the screen is “Extraordinary results. Your results will vary”.

The Back2Life infomercial is presented by Back in Five, LLC.

Dean Graziosi’s Real Estate and Foreclosure Profits – Scam or Plan?

Saturday, April 4th, 2009

Want to make a lot of money from the real estate market? Foreclosure Profits is a current TV infomercial that promises you just that, if you buy into its methods. Real estate millionaire Dean Graziosi is the man behind the product and helps people make money in real estate by capitalizing on market cycles. Dean Graziosi has previously been associated with as seen on TV advertisements for “Motor Millions” and “Think a Little Different”, both products to help epople profit from real estate. In one of his most recent Foreclosure Profits infomercials, Dean accentuates the fact that our economy is in a trying time as of late 2008, with uncertainty over who the new president will be and what they’ll do for our economy. Dean promises people a way to turn their financial situation around, no matter how bad their situation may be. His product teaches people how to buy Real Estate appropriately during the market cycles to make serious money and improve their overall financial situations. As with most infomercials claiming to help you get rich, many people wonder if Dean Graziosi’s full of scams or smart plans to help you financially succeed.

Dean’s books and courses teach strategies that he claims will help people make a fortune from today’s already down real estate market. Dean claims that various people have read the book and applied the concepts in it to make serious money and improve their financial situation. In the infomercial, various home video footage sent in by “actual people” shows people who have used the methods Dean suggests. The actual people claim they’ve made tens of thousands of dollars using Dean’s strategies and tips, with no money down and no bank loans whatsoever.

Creator: Dean Graziosi is a real estate expert, bestselling author and investor. He may be a prime example of a rags to riches story, as he grew up wearing second hand clothes, and his mother worked two jobs just to earn $90 a week. He lived in a trailer home and didn’t complete high school back then. Dean became motivated from there on out to better his situation. His book Be a Real Estate Millionaire talks of how Dean achieved financial freedom through making some great real estate investments. As a teenager he bought a run down apartment building with no money down, fixed it up and sold at a profit. Now Dean has been teaching novice real estate investors for over 20 years how to make these financially savvy real estate purchases. Dean’s book “Be a Real Estate Millionaire” become one of the hottest real estate books on the market and a New York Times bestseller.

How it works: Dean’s system teaches you step by step strategies on how to find real estate losers and make them into winners. It claims to give strategies to buy properties cheaper than anywhere else, to buy the home and then rent out the property for positive cash flow. The “Profit from Real Estate Right Now” book reveals Dean’s strategies and loopholes that people can use to buy foreclosed properties for pennies on the dollar during down real estate markets, then turn them into rental properties for positive cash flow. In the infomercial, Dean has claimed that we’re near the bottom of the real estate market and stand to make a good deal of money from it in the future. Ironically, Dean mentions in his infomercial that he saw an ad for “Houses for $300” and that just isn’t realistic. It’s unknown whether Dean’s strategies and methods truly work or if these are Dean Graziosi scams.

What’s included:
“Profit from Real Estate Right Now” is Dean’s brand new book about how to profit from the current down markets. On the infomercial it sells for $19.95 plus shipping and handling. He’s also giving away his previous book Be a Real Estate Millionaire for free with it. Dean also includes “Special report: Student Secrets”, a report about how his students got themselves out of debt.

Fine print: “Some students may have purchased optional support program. Results not typical”. Also note, we have not tested these products and can’t say whether this system truly works, or if Dean Graziosi’s products are scams.

About

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

The infomercial is a mash up of the words “information” and “commercial”. These ads which run anywhere from a few minutes to an hour on television provide a way for entrepreneurs to pitch their latest, greatest product. The infomercials continue to be an important phenomenon in pop culture, marketing and our buying habits that can’t be neglected. Infomercials sell everything from ways to cook food faster or better to ways to shed pounds, make money over your internet, and reduce debts. While there are many great products being advertised on television these days, not all of them are cracked up to what they claim to be. Nonetheless, these as seen on TV products can be interesting to discuss, review and laugh at.

Some of the well known infomercial stars and pitch people include Kevin Trudeau, Jeff Paul, Tony Little and even Mr. T. Often celebrities get into the ads, or create their own products once they’re out of the spotlight to make additional revenue.

This website is dedicated to providing information, insight and reviews about the current TV infomercials and products. These various products include items from the As Seen on TV advertisements that can be seen most often during late nights or early mornings. There’s even cable and satellite channels which are completely devoted to airing the infomercial ads all day, every day, 24/7.
