Judges Feedback: “If you’re gonna do that, you better understand what you’re up against,” Liz Bacelar warned, referencing GlamSquad.
Pitches get shot down all the time – that is the nature of the process. For the NYC round, Privileged won the day. Which doesn’t mean that, no matter how hard one works and no matter how well-deserved the prize, when that Big Moment does come, the winner isn’t completely taken by surprise.
Privileged’s creator confessed to “pacing the street back and forth” nervously awaiting the results, only to walk back in after his team had been announced as the winner:
“This means so much,” he said, overwhelmed by the emotions of the moment. “I’ve been working jobs since I was 14 or 15 and have figured a lot of this out on my own…my business school was the streets.”
