"The next Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, or Mark Zuckerberg" has his or her head down, is putting in 100+ hour work weeks, and will never compromise their vision by entrusting it to anyone else, much less reality TV stars and pop producers who are on their way out.
As a former working and touring musician myself, I have seen the contracts you sign for "winning" (or even making it to one of the final rounds of) these shows and they are not drawn up in your favor. The same thing will happen here. Simon Coward and talent.i.had will be contractually invested in the "winner's" venture without bringing anything to the table and will take more out of it than the individual whose idea it was in the first place.
It's a scam and these people are the proprietors of false dreams, a huge factor in the downfall of the music industry (now gunning for tech!), and, essentially, the scum of the earth.
