First, Patti's leaving ("former QVC host" meta tag controversy), then she's not so sure (vague blog announcements and scattered part-time on-air hours), but then she finally pinky swears that she's absolutely positively officially staying with QVC as a full-time host (the big announcement).
However, nothing with Patti is ever simple. This much I know.
Patti just posted a professionally produced demo reel on You Tube with her contact information included in the video. Why? She's not looking for a job anymore. She's not, right? Right???
I think Patti's just toying with us at this point. She's swirl, tap, buffing my brain!
Watch it for yourself:
Is she just looking for some additional gigs on the side? Wouldn't she do that more subtly through her representation?
Patti better be careful because I do know that QVC is actively looking for new hosts. You can watch all sorts of entertaining audition tapes from hosting hopefuls on You Tube.
However, some of the auditioners are going the more traditional route with professional representation (although some of these places look a little sleazy--I don't want anything those half-nekkid ladies are selling!)
If you think you have what it takes, here's what the Q wants in a new host. It states that they are looking for men or women, but I've heard that they really want a woman. Sorry guys! Although I have to give props to Rick for not only being able to pull off a jewelry show, but he even had to do a Breezies bra presentation recently. Only a real man can sell bras on television!
The starting pay ain't to shabby either ... hey, I'm a woman and I can talk ...
