Shopping Channel Hosts: Sales Prevention Team

Recommended Posts

What's the analysis of this?  Mary, a full fledged host for years is back to the social secretary role? I doubt it's considered co-hosting a la Gourmet Holiday.

Why not give it to Ali Carr who successfully auditioned for the role when David did kitchen Fridays? I guess David's fans demanded it.

 Stacey's new show is streaming I think and not broadcast?  I'm happy for her she has another show....

I agree with what you've said here.

Just would add that it's not only disappointing, but typical, that QVC would - one more time - relegate a newer host into obscurity.  And Stacey is not all that new, but relative the other longer term hosts, she's new.  They are obviously moving  - perhaps even protecting - more seasoned hosts to the main channel, while newer hosts who have proven themselves (in my mind, like Stacey has) are shoved aside.  Yes, shoved.

I would be one unhappy camper...but I guess she's still employed, so there's something to be said for that.

I think Terri Conn is on borrowed time. She’s useless, and her surname isn’t a great sell for shopping telly. 

Lordy, I was watching at some ungodly hour and happened to flip to Q and there was Terri Conn.  If she isn't on borrowed time, she definitely should be.  She was horrible....couldn't describe an item correctly....the OAP kept correcting her.  It was really a sh*t show.

Since you brought up pronunciation.....

My ears are bleeding from hearing hosts and OAP's intentionally impede their own speech. That Amal chick who sells lounge wear mostly in the form of hammer pants and sloppy robes cardigans refuses to put the T's in the word button. She's not the only one. I don't know any of the newbie host names but most are guilty. The other thing they do is add an "H" to "STR" blends (shtraight, shtrong,  Amy Shtran) It's much harder to speak this way than to pronounce correctly, so I don't get it. I find myself muting the sound more often than not. 

 

Hammer pants...bwahaha!  Good one.

I thought that shtraight, shtrong thing was a Pa. speech pattern. Lots of hosts say it including Jayne Brown. I just thought it was a regional dealio.

There’s a lot to the Pa dialect.  We live in Western Pa and there are a lot of regional things here.  But what confounds me is most of these speech problems are with the millennial and younger females.  They cannot pronounce the letter L at the end of words.  Tunnel is tunno, vehicle is vehico, professional is professiono, and so on.  Then of course there’s the letter T, again by millennials and younger.  Mountain is mowin, butter is bu-er.  Then finally we have Pittsburgh-ese.  They use the word Yinze for you are or are you ( yinze going to the  Stiller game—-yes Stiller is Steeler), dahnton for downtown, hawse for house.  But I do have a question:  I’ve heard a couple of hosts or OAP’s pronounce important as impordant. Is that a southern thing?  My acquaintances from Texas and Arkansas pronounce the word that way, and I think Jane does too.

These speech deficiencies on Q drive me crazy.  I still think it’s laziness rather than a speech impediment.  Amy is the worst, and one reason I can’t watch her.  Another is Stacy who’s shrill voice Kardashian twang makes her impossible to watch.

Here comes the phoniest OAP the JAI guy. Last night on Katrina's show he showed one of "his" new items. Inspired by a two week trip to Japan, features cherry blossoms which he said were not in bloom during his boondoggle visit. You can't make this stuff up. Two whole weeks! WOW

I agree Amy is the worst!  I absolutely can't watch her for more than a few minutes,  and that's too long.  I have a friend who says Valentimes for Valentines, condominiun for condominium, punkin for pumpkin, and a few other n/m words where she gets them mixed up that don't come to mind right now. 

And every time Pat says go-head I want to scream.  I will admit I'm kind of fussy when it comes to language, but it still bugs me.

ITA. I had a few minutes around noon to sit and watch. Terri was on showing Lock'n'Locks. She was winging it for several minutes before introducing Chris P. Terri did a horrible job. She was spouting stuff like "you can put veggies in these, you can put sandwiches in these, fruits in these". It was obvious she didn't own any personally since she missed all the positives. It was more like she'd never seen them before. 

The Q bosses gave Terri a prime selling hour, but she was terrible. What were they thinking? She clearly needs more time or more training before giving her such a good time of day. She's an instant channel changer for me.

That one bothers me, too. I'd heard her say that several times before I figured out what she was really saying. 

Another one is "look-it". I hear that only in Q land. 

Onion is also pronounced differently. David says "ungyun". There's no "g" in it. I don't think it's regional since I've heard it in many parts of the country. I think it's how an individual sees it. Several of my friends add a "g" but others don't.

I'm thinking it's more the other way around.

College kids either walk to the group showers or share a shower with 3 other dorm-mates. None of them are going to keep a slimy bar of soap around. They all use shower gel. She just says whatever sh*t pops into her head.

I used soap bars way back when I was in college (used a pink storage container which I still own).  No way on this planet would I pay $9 for for a bar of soap, let alone give them away to others, even when it was Secret Santa time in the dorm.

It's so ridiculous that during a Scrub Daddy presentation they still use the story "when Shawn Killinger got married she received glass with sticky labels that were hard to remove." Why bring this up?, put this one to rest.

Surely, someone else at Q has gotten married more recently and had the same issue.

And it's not like we all haven't had this issue with labels that won't come off!  I hardly need someone to bring up a host - especially that one who is my least favorite of all the hosts and who got married probably 5 years ago - to make the product relatable!

OK, don't judge me.  I have had a 5 stone silver diamonique ring for over 10 yrs and it is beautiful.. a lot of people have commented on it and I just say 'thank you'.  So after a few glasses of wine last night I ordered the 'Courtney ring' in silver I just love that setting and am hoping it looks the same.  (I had a ring from my ex (boyfriend)..ugh, hate saying that cause I'm older - but when he dumped me (in an email, on our anniversary after 8 years).  I smashed the ring he had given me (not a diamond, but still, a nice ring) with a hammer and sent it to him along with a smashed gold necklace I had bought him in the D.R..  I'm sure he didn't give a shit, but it made me feel good (I was so angry).  Life.. aaaah.

My daughter In college is having some skin issues and I sent her some goat milk soap that I made. There is more goat milk in my soap than those phony Beekman’s.   And she isn’t sharing.

She was selling DB handbags yesterday and starts yammering about one of her daughters’ plays.  Guess she attending her daughter’s play, ordered a vodka tonic and someone called her a lush. Why she even told this story?  What the story had to do with handbags?  Who knows?

She has to be one of the top sellers.  And the major breadwinner.   She’s supporting everyone including her adult daughters — in style.  She isn’t leaving soon.

I watched her on mute and couldn’t believe what she was wearing.  It was light blue and looked like a polyester pantsuit my mom MIGHT have worn in the 1970’s. It was today’s TS!   And she wore it with chunky white sneakers — not an attractive look.

Just tuned in to see Mary Beth with Kim Gravel.  I haven't seen MB in a while.  Not used to seeing her with the curly hair.

Did anyone catch Rick's last Diamonique show?  He had to do a segment with Courtney K. featuring her ring J354686 - 6.10 ct cushion cut, down to a sale price of $46.64.  Guess it didn't sell very well, or maybe it's just a promotion?  I can't imagine wearing that thing.  If I get Diamonique, I'd want it to be believable.

I just checked it out.  I like it in the navy and black, but I'd probably wear a different color top underneath, though, instead of the monochromatic look.  The crepe reminds me of something Q might sell in the Linea line, but at a much lower cost.
