Actually it would enhance my image of QVC if they'd let a couple or more of what I consider to be unwatchable hosts hit the door.  Hosting at QVC would be greatly improved with some hands-on supervision to set guidelines for performance instead of it being the free-for-all that it is now.

 

 

@Kachina624, I agree and well said. I find myself not watching and purposely not buying when certain hosts are on. I wish they weren't even there! They've been ruining this shopping experience for me for quite awhile...one in particular who is on far too often and never shuts up about herself. 😩 

 

At this point in time I never tune into QVC because a certain host is presenting. Don't enjoy any of them that much anymore so wouldn't be heartbroken to see any of them leave...surprised yes, but not heartbroken. I will say that out of all the female hosts they could have let go I was very surprised they chose Carolyn Gracie. That one continues to be a head scratcher for me. And I will admit I do wish she was still around.   

 

One final thing as I can't seem to shut up either. HA! I think an ongoing problem for QVC is trying find quality hosts to bring in to replace current hosts who leave the company for whatever reason. And judging by some of the new on air vendors they've brought in recently the pickens are slim there, too! I just rushed back from the grocery store to catch the Jai show only to find I immediately had to mute the volume while the female vendor was filling in for Scott. WOW!

 

Okay, stick a fork in me, I'm finally done. 😄

I shop from the website and seldom watch, so have no interest in the hosts whatsoever.  I record a few vendors like Laura Geller and Candace Cameron Bure because their products work for me; the hosts are irrelevant to me.

As long as QVC is selling the things I buy here less than I can get them elsewhere, I'll buy them here.  Regardless of hosts, or no hosts.

Re: Who would be your "final straw" lay-off?

I have to agree with many of the remarks on this thread. I buy the product because of what it can do to make my life easier or better, I am not buying because of the host. But I have had to look elsewhere to get the complete info on a product because other than the myriad of colors the info I need to make a buying decision is often not given to me. So I find a need to go online, do a search for the product and gather the info I need. Unfortunately for Q I often stumble upon a less expensive price for the product and S/H at other times the item will also be noted that the return will be free. That usually sells it for me.

Re: Who would be your "final straw" lay-off?

It saddens me that there are some that want hosts they don't like lose their jobs!  

 

I am grown up enough to only buy what I need to help enjoy my life, and enough clothes to wear.  I'm sorry for those that get their happiness by having stuff delivered and overbuying.  Just MHO.  To each their own

They could replace them all with robots (AI) and it would probably be better.  Unless they can't dance and sing!! Cat LOL

How the company is run is my deciding factor, not any particular host.

Though QVC wants  us to be invested in their employees as "friends", they are a highly skilled sales force. I haven't purchased from a live show in ages. Pretty much on-line only these days. Like any company, employees come and go.

No one. I shop from the Q site.
