I can't watch new hosts. In fact, I usually find them to be downright cringe-worthy. Sorry. It's not that I have anything against them personally since everyone has to start somewhere. But they just stress me out!
I turn on home shopping for mindless entertainment to help me unwind and defrag my brain, but the newbies make me so nervous that I can't relax. Like watching a jittery gymnast wobble on the balance beam, I just find myself holding my breath and praying that they don't completely lose their footing and go crashing face first onto the mat.
You can even see the wheels wildly spinning in their brains when they pause or laugh nervously. Are they listening to a producer in their earpiece? Did they completely flake out and lose their train of thought? Are they totally out of ideas about how to describe the lovely bunny rabbit themed ankle bracelet with lobster claw clasp available in goldtone or silvertone?
It takes a whole lotta time, experience, and dedication to get your home shopping host sea legs. All I know is that I'm not comfortable enough to even watch--much less buy--until they are comfortable enough to sell.
