Re: Why Can't the Hosts Taste Food???

I don't care whether or not they taste it, but what I can't stand is the "happy dance". If not tasting the food will prevent that, I'm all for it.

Hosts have said repeatedly,  and continue to state that they are not permitted to eat food on air in the studio.   It was confirmed as recently as yesterday.  It is a company mandate that they may not, both at QVC and HSN.

They sample it all at home anyway.

Makes no sense. If they can't eat the food, what happens to it? Hope they dont throw it away!  I also wish they would stop showing extreme closeups of the hosts fingers. A little off putting! No one wants to see giant fingernails on a 65" TV!!!! :-0

Pandemic? Eating with mouth open? slurping sounds? crumbs ?
