I just caught that too.  Get the total look with Dan Wheeler. 

You never know I guess.  I saw Lisa selling electronics and she was really good. Maybe he can interest me in some Spanx or something?

I wondered the same thing when I saw the promo for that on the web page too.  I can't think of anyone less likely to do a fashion show.

I think it's hilarious! Well, maybe because he's the only male in his house and he's surrounded by estrogen 24/7. Second of all, he's kind of sweet. Third...who cares? I previewed some of the clothes, I ordered the cute cut out motto dress and I won't be watching the show because I usually just order online and don't subject myself to Q shows. However, it is a great question and I was puzzled myself, but I think it's funny and we should applaud Dan for having guts.

Perhaps to get a man's perspective on today's fashion for women.  After all, they get to look at us and admire the view!

He's done it before  - I believe the concept was his idea.

I can't even imagine that!!!  Wished I had seen at least some of it.

OMG, I seriously would've peed myself if I'd seen that!  I sure needed a laugh this afternoon!

yes, he has done it before.... several times actually. they had jonathan redmond do a fashion clearance show a few months ago in the middle of the night and he was GREAT!

Oh! This is not the first show he has done like this, Dan's great!  Seriously he did a great job on the show before and he's very very good with descriptions.  I think he's really brave to strike out and try something new like this, you have to admire him for doing it.

Love Dan, love his shows.{#emotions_dlg.wub}

It's true he was super!  I think it's great they are moving his show up in time slots so more people can see it, maybe they gave him the late night time slots first to see if he was comfortable with it and it went ok.  I guess it went fine he is doing another show!!{#emotions_dlg.thumbup}

Go Dan!{#emotions_dlg.wub}

Nice guy was trying too hard - brave, perhaps - kind of like taking my husband shopping - didn't work well for me.

Packaging is attractive, but never judge a book by it's cover - content is far more important.

I think Dan has been doing that for years. 

Its nice to have a male perspective on women's clothing.  Unfortunetly I can't get mine to go shopping with me, unless I 'remind' him of the restaurants in the mall.

There are many male fashion designers of ladies clothing, so men can sell ladies clothing too. I like to hear their perspective. Some men have a great sense of style, Clinton Kelly for example

Because it's in his job description and is exactly why he was hired.

I've seen him before, too - it's been at least a few years since he's done this.

Do not expect the same type of presentation style as with the female hosts.  As I recall, it was a little awkward, but very sweet in a vulnerable way - a very unique and fresh take on women's fashion.

When I was first married, my husband bought all my clothing.  He has great taste and, knows what I like and what looks good on me.

Besides, If someone becomes ill and, it's happened in the middle of a show, someone has to come in on short notice.  Why not Dan

My husband doesn't know anything about fabric names and style cuts but he has a great eye for fashion and what looks good on a woman. I normally turn off QVC when he gets home or has time to sit with me to watch t.v., but sometimes I leave it on a little while to hear what he has to say because I love to see things from his perspective.. it's very helpful and enlightening.  You DON'T want to hear what he has to say about crop pants.. but I've been known to wear them anyway.{#emotions_dlg.ohmy}

He's done it before and I'm just sorry - it gives me the willies.  HE gives me the willies though I know he's a truly nice guy from all I've heard and seen about him.  I also can't stand seeing him in workout clothes.

Can someone tell me why QVC has Dan Wheeler doing an hour of selling ladies clothes at 3PM?>>


Same reason they have Rick Domeier selling women's jewelry at 9 PM. Smile

I saw him do this previously and he did a surprisingly good job, though having him do it makes little sense to me, personally...  On the other hand, maybe he gets tired of computers, fitness equipment and home projects.  Who could blame him!?
