Shopping Channel Hosts: Sales Prevention Team

Recommended Posts

I’ve been watching Katrina’s “Upgrade Your Look” show on Q2.  Impressed.  She takes questions from the viewers via her FB page (I think?). She actually answered a question from a viewer who asked about  best designs for someone with an apple shape!  And asked the viewer to connect with her via FB for more information.  As an apple, I appreciated the information and the offer.

I’m pretty casual, but I enjoy her perspective regarding “fashion,” which of course I could upgrade!  Just fun to watch, without making me feel dumb (as the host we cannot mention often made me feel.)

I agree. Katrina has a way that brings you in. She doesn’t push you away the way that other, more aggressive hosts might.

When I see Jilly as OAP now on the screen with a Q host makes me wonder if both are necessary or overkill to present lackluster products from Scott Bros? Or maybe the Scott Bros don't need to be there with Jilly or vice versa?  The Q Host + Scott Bros + Q Former Host/OAP combo for some reason is not working for me.

Four people to sell a towel set? Ridiculous. I assumed the point of bringing Jill onboard was that we wouldn’t be seeing Tweedledum and Tweedledee… I was wrong!

I agree, but she went years with a headband. I was so glad to see her move away from that.  Whatever the new look is, she’ll probably keep it for 10 years or more. 

To my eye it looked like Mama Breezies might have had short hair under the headband with a long wig/hairpiece/pony attached. The color of her bangs didn’t quite match the color of the party going on in the back. At the time I assumed she was growing out and hiding her real hair.

Caught a minute of Ali and OAP selling a 4 tier collapsible rack (V37441). Sure enough, along with a few kitchen items on the OAP’s rack, is a copy of Diamond Dave’s latest contribution to culinary salvation through artery clogging food. 
Stay tuned for family photos…🤦‍♀️

That entire midnight  TSV presentation was a hot mess ...Jill standing there preening like she’s all that (never liked her, can you tell ??)...

...the best was Sandra who looked to me like she would rather be anywhere else and even when the presentation was over she said goodbye guys and I don’t think it was an all inclusive guys and I think she left Jill out on purpose .... honestly I couldn’t blame her because 4 people selling sheets is overkill and Jill added nothing to the presentation except her opinions and I couldn’t care less what her opinions are on sheets and honestly I was shocked at how awful she looks because I see her on Facebook and she looks way better ....all in all, a mess IMO

I noticed lately hosts and OAPs (on HSN and QVC) using a weird (IMO) talking point during a sales pitch: how salt/sodium makes various extremities or the face swell up??? Example: during the Vionic show Pat said something to the effect of, if you had a little bit too much salt on your margarita you can loosen the straps on these sandals...

Valid points on Q’s decision to crowd the plate with ambassador Jill Bauer, “celebs” Scott brothers and host Sandra Bennett. 

And how funny when Q then throws a host on by themselves, or no frills on QVC2?

You go from an ensemble cast to a one man show - no skid marks. 😅

Not new.....I've made them since the late 80's from a New York Times Cookbook recipe (it was a Pierre Franey recipe, may he RIP).  I have another recipe for them from Katie Lee from The Kitchen that have become our favorite.......until I became allergic to shellfish three years ago.

Frau Bauer is not a”lifestyle expert.” She’s a media ho and Q yo-yo.

I guess what gnashes my teeth is that Jill does not have any credentials to tout herself as a lifestyle expert.  Furthermore, I get a bit annoyed at how she like so many other former hosts who leave, do so proudly only to return to the Q in some other capacity and/or sell from their home sofas.

I hate those extreme closeups they do on the beauty shows too, no matter who the host is. Does QVC realize a lot of people at home see these shows on 55-inch TV sets? We don't need gigantic images that show every pore and every tiny wrinkle.
