What Things Make You Change the Channel?
I’m a long time QVC and HSN Watcher. The following makes me change the channel, what are your Channel Turners? And usually I forget to come back to what I was watching!
1.I can be enjoying a presentation then they start with the hard sell Limited…Hurry….Now….Price Going Up…Heres the Thing, this price is going away… 5000 sold….Like I care how many are sold! Even with the first presentation at mid night they start with the Limited warnings.
2. Thirdly: Vacuum Cleaners and Mops/Cleaning products showing disgusting strange messes. I can’t press the remote fast enough, sometimes I feel sick.
3. When Food Shows are interrupted with non Food products because they have a captive audience, Like QVC David Venable ITKWD show, I hate when they distrub the flow of the show with that: e.g. The Bose Radio/CD presentation that always last 30 to 45 minutes.
There are so many things that irritate me LOL, but since you asked here are a few:
– Shawn Killinger and her goofy glasses, she takes them off & on, off & on, off & on GRRR!
– Kim Gravel, fake as all get out…cannot stand that woman
– Julia Cearley–New host on QVC, OMG I’m not sure WHY they thought she’d be a good host, but I honestly think she’s the worst host I’ve ever seen. Laughs inappropriately, cannot stand up straight, etc…I could go on and on LOL
– Sarah: she has to know that her hair looks HORRIBLE parted down the middle like that, it’s
thinning something terrible and is just awful looking—it would look so much better parted off to the side, with a swoop effect so to speak…just anything other than that!!
As you can see, most of my issues are with QVC…I honestly don’t mind the hosts at HSN, my favorite HSN host is Tamara and my favorite QVC host is Kristine Zell.
What’s with the string-straight middle parted hair on some of the hosts on QVC & HSN. You can’t tell me they think it looks good. I think I am watching “Morticia”. Halloween hair. I have to turn the channel cause I can’t stand to look at them. ICK! They have hair products for sale, use them.
CRAFTS! I never thought it would end! Andrew Lessman being on 24/7. B o r i n g…
Slinky! Jackie’s voice, the awful pleather & the cheap elastic waist clothes. Ugly bear–whatever they are called–boots.
The same Xmas decorations over-and-over on QVC. The ceramic Xmas tree from the 70s & those cheap tiny lights that will need to be untangled every year. LOL!
Shwan & Isaac (QVC). You’d think those two were selling Chanel. And last, Jay King’s stuttering blather. He’s nice but….
I HATE TO VOICE THESE OPINIONS – BECAUSE I AM SO FAR FROM PERFECT (I BARELY MAKE IT TO “OKAY” MOST DAYS…..
BUT SINCE YOU ASKED…..
SUSAN GRAVER – LIKE A MOTH TO LIGHT HER VOICE, HER WORD REPEATING, HER FRENETIC HAND JESTURES, HER CONSTANT LEG KICKS, HER POSING & ENDLESS STARING AT HERSELF IN THE MONITOR – GIVES ME A HEADACHE
KIRSTEN LINQUIST – PHONY BALONEY….EVERYTHING ABOUT HER MAKES ME WANNA HURT HER.
GUY JOVAN – HE’S SO RED – LOOKS LIKE A BAD BURN, CAN’T LOOK AT HIM.
ALBERTI POPAJ – INSINCERE SELLING….”ACTS” MORE THAN SELLS.
ANTOINELLA NESTOR – NO, JUST NO. HARD PASS.
AMY STRAN – SING SONGS AND DRAGS OUT EVERY OTHER WORD FROM HER GIANT VENEERED MOUTH.
AND LASTLY – EVERY LAST ONE OF THE ENDLESS SHOWS THAT NOSE PICKING, WIPE HIS HANDS ON HIS FACE THEN INTO THE FOOD, TALK WITH HIS MOUTH OPEN GROTESQUE MAN WOLFGANG PUCK. I JUST CAN’T WITH THAT GUY. YUCK.
PLEASE FORGIVE ME SAYING SUCH HO HO HORRIBLE THINGS….
Karen16-none of us are perfect, I agree, don’t apologize. I read your post….uh, yeah, ok, THEN I read the last sentence. I decided to only watch cooking shows when I am having a meal, as often they make me hungry…………….well, I must say WP, I didn’t finish my meal, he’s if nothing else, good for my diet. The NOSE thing!!!! omg. I have decided he must have some “wild hairs” growing there & needs a good tweeze. It is honestly disgusting. If I could afford it I would avoid his restaurants because of that. I so desperately needed the laugh you gave me tonight. Thanks so very much, Karen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!…..hugs!!!!!!!!!!
THANK YOU FOR YOUR POST! I agree with you & thank you for saying it with such humor. (I really needed that today).
Hi Sherryrose –
I am G L A D to be of humorous service to you.
Enjoy your weekend and lemme know how you do on that “diet” whilst watching WP! *wink*
oh you are delightful. My channel flippers…..agree with you on the hard sell….ugh. I still purchase DG jeans, but since several years ago she touted “the women paint these by hand” I am 70 had many had painted jeans in the 70’s, so imagine my “freak out” when I received a pair of jeans with an iron on applied!!!!!!!!! I was so livid I went all over the internet, everywhere I could on hsn, ha & hsn wouldn’t even post my review. Wasn’t as bad a problem when she switched from real studs on the jeans, still called them studs & I found out those were iron on.
It seems that every time I tune in during the day, they are selling the same thing! ALL DAY LONG..
they did the same last Christmas. the did the same tss every other day all day long. when I said to them to show other items instead of the same item every day all day her response ” the customers like it”.
BIG LAFFS HERE! AND I AGREE TOTALLY – YELLING, SCREECHING, TALKING 100 MILES PER MINUTE AND SUZANNE ENDLESSLY SAYING “IT’S SEXY”. ISNT THIS SPOSTA BE A FAMILY SHOW? I AM A 2 TIMES RAPE VICTIM & THE LAST THING I WANNA BE IS “SEXY”.
The question for me would be What Makes Me Turn on the Channel. Very rarely watch I can’t stand the majority of the hosts I mostly shop on line. I will put it on maybe once a month if they are selling something I’m really interested in but need more info about the product.
Diane Gilman, Slinky woman, Diane Gilman, Slinky woman, Diane Gilman and Shannon.
All Day Craft Shows
I HATE CRAFTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I totally agree with you… Who needs all day of anything…variety keeps me watching!
I have to chuckle and nod in agreement to everything posted thus far!! All of it.
Hard sell…if it’s not selling, move on. No need to shove it down our throats.
Diane Gilman. She tries to control the entire process, even trying to direct the producer. I don’t have any desire to be a part of “the cool girls’ club” by wearing her stuff. I like her clothing, I just can’t watch her sell it.
Andrew Lessman, five seconds into his educating the masses. I understand why he does it, but unless it’s a brand new product, I could probably repeat the presentation word for word.
Lastly, Colleen Lopez. I cannot watch her. I. Just. Can’t.
gee, guess I am glad to realize its not only me. You are “spot on” Oh my, yes, the cool girls club. I haven’t been a member of that club for 50 years. lol And, Lessman. I absolutely cannot watch him either. Does he still speak soooooo sllloooooowwwwllllly?????? Drove me coo coo. Perhaps I am just too hyper.
The Slinky Lady, Shannon Smith, Shawn (the one with her glasses down her nose) last name and David Venable.
I have to change the channel when the Slinky lady is on. Her voice is like fingernails on a chalkboard.
OMG – Yes, Yes, YES!!!
1) Vacuums and mops I have to agree And Only because we have bought one already LOL
I have mine.
I don’t feel ill towards sellers thereof, but I can’t listen for 1 or 2 or Lord in Heaven please NO 3 hours of vitamins. Just Can’t do it.
3 Some foods If I’m not hungry for it: I will get hungry for it. No.
