QVC models

Started 1284487830.92 in Viewpoints | Last reply 1284671098.773 by Danibeth

I looked at the Q Did What forum yesterday and there was a thread from a viewer that she really disliked how one of the models does her job. She said she changes the channel whenever she sees that particular model.

I've never been annoyed by any of the models. But now since I read the thread I do see what the OP was getting at -- overly dramatic poses and facial expressions. Isn't that their job and what they're supposed to do?

Have any of the models ever irritated any of you? What kind of things have you seen that turn you off?

I like the models. I like when they "work it".

I like all the models except Kate. It irritates me when she's modeling make-up, and she tries to look sexy and push her extra thin lips out into a pout (which is impossible anyway). She looks so ridiculous when she does that with her mouth.

No and nothing.

I read part of that thread and was surprised by how strongly some feel about this. Honestly, I never noticed that much. Don't even remember the names. Nothing has ever bothered me or caused me to switch channels or turn the tv off.

I don't know their names. They are on for a nanosecond. So no, they don't bother me.

I don't know all their names but I know some of them and red headed Kate bugs me. I can't stand the fish lips. She does this all the time, not only during the make-up shows. She was big time trying to work it during the runway show the other night and it just wasn't working for her!

A lot of us might look ridiculous to each other, I happen to think Kate is very attractive and I don't know why you would even bring something like that up.

Same here.

I think they do a great job. None have ever done anything irritating that I've seen.

I know what model you are referring to, Speedy. She is a little overly dramatic but so what. She's doing her job and that's all that counts. I think the models do a great job considering some of the hideous and ill fitting clothing they have to wear. It amazes me that they're able to keep a smile on their faces.

Some of the clothes they try to sell turn me off, not the models.

I think they are the classiest group of models among all the shopping channels.

There's only one that annoys me and I know it's ridiculous but I can't help it. Rather than turn the channel, I tend to get mesmorized staring at her face which looks completely frozen. It's the strangest thing. I won't mention any names but I will say she is very pretty....it's just this wierd thing. Not every one can model even if they have the looks just like some people can't act or whatever. I just can't take my eyes off her frozen smile so I rarely notice what she's wearing (lol). Come to think of it, it's not even a real smile, more like a quarter smile. Very strange. I think most of them do a great job and I don't really spend alot of time worrying about it.

I LOVE Kate. She shows clothes better than anyone else. And she has fabulous legs.

The only thing I dislike is when plus size models do not button coats up so there is no way you can determine how it truly looks worn.

The chubby red-headed model that always mugs for the camera with what she thinks are sexy expressions and "super model" poses is very distracting and downright sad.

There are also a couple of models who need to clean the oil and blackheads out of their ears before they model earrings. GROSS! {#emotions_dlg.tt1}

LOL! I do agree. Some of the color combinations are a bit off. Sometimes I feel sorry for the younger models when they put them in something matronly they would probably never wear in real life.

The only time I am annoyed is when a model begins mugging for the camera, leaving her role of showing off the product and trying to become the center of attention. Very unprofessional.

Having said that though, I think generally Q's models are the best on the shopping channels. They are pretty, modest and classy. Also Q uses a nice variety of heights and sizes, ethnic backgrounds and ages. They are not all great beauties but they are easy to identify with their style etc.

I couldn't even tell you the model's names, except I do know who Joy is.

If you notice, Kate has bad teeth. She has those prominent eye teeth (canines) and should have had them removed/braces when young.

Since my parents ensured that I had the proper dental care to improve my now-beautiful smile even though we were dirt poor, I have compassion for her.

Some people, if not raised to appreciate good teeth, don't value them as adults and don't get them fixed, even if they could now.

.

Oh, and to the OP, I like all of the models and don't mind if they 'work it'. That's their job. And it must be mind-numbingly boring - think about it. I'd be acting out too!
