We're counting down the five worst rated As Seen on TV products tested by experts and the NewsChannel 5 team. Whether it's a workout tool, a handy hanger for your walls, or a gadget to help firm up your face, these products scored just plain bad.
"It's tough to give it a rating when it scored so miserably," said an expert.
So let's get right to it. First up, the ever-so-popular Shake Weight. It promises to get your arms toned and tight, but in the end it just doesn't deliver.
"I'd give this a 0.5," said the expert.
A product promising to keep your balance in check failed and actually did more harm than good.
"I would give this a minus one. I'd be very careful with this product," said an expert.
Some home remedies like Get A Grip, that's supposed to give you a helping hand in the shower, got a big zero. Hercules Hooks were anything but strong and powerful with holding up paintings and other objects to your wall.
"I wouldn't give it a one out of five. Sorry, a zero. Sorry," said Dennis
Rosette, our expert.
Last but not least we have the Neckline Slimmer, promising to get rid of wrinkles with an easy at-home tool. Experts all agree, this product is a total bust.
"I think you'd get a neck pain before you see anything. It's uncomfortable," said our experts.
Ouch! So, all in all these five products may be ones to stay away from
the next time you're looking for a quick fix.
