Speaking of Men ... Meet the New QVC Host


See, I told you it was raining men!

Jonathan Redford is the new QVC host-in-training. Here's a snippet of his bio from his website, JonathanRedford.com:

Jonathan Redford grew up in a musical family, kind of like the Partridges, except they didn't tour... though they considered it. He fell asleep every night listening to his dad (who's a composer) plunk out melodies on the piano, thus inspiring him to become a carpenter... which he does on the side when he's not training to join the Los Angeles Lakers... which he also does when he's not trying to become America’s answer to Jude Law... which he does when he’s not trying to one-up Seacrest... which he happens to do when he isn't writing or listening to music.



Check out Jonathan's website ... there's pictures of his cute little dog, Simon, his music (kind of Jason Mraz sounding to me), blog, and resume. It appears that Jonathan is an enthusiastic jack-of-all-trades so maybe, just maybe, he might be able to pull this off. We shall see.

  2. Wow! The Q could use more eye candy like this! Seriously, it's good to see them get some more men hosts. They give a different perspective on things they present.

    Yes, that's it! He's a bit too boyish-looking for some of us Cheetahs ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Uh...where did my post go regarding where has QBee been lately.

  12. Queen Bea, where are you? I feel lost and don't know what's going on.

    "I think she took ill shortly after banging Mike Rowe!"

    Did someone bang Mike Rowe claiming to be me???

  18. He's obviously gay. Sorry, ladies.

    ReplyDelete
  19. i agree with anonymous june 25. way gay.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sooo, I think he was doing just fine intervewing all these famous people. Why would he go to sell stuff at QVC? He can do better than that.

    ReplyDelete
  21. He talks about living with his girlfried in The Insider. I was surprised.

    Why go to QVC? For the same reason Shawn, Albany, and all the others did. It's a pay check. Sadly though, they all probably think it's a stairway to the stars. It's not. Mike Rowe is a rare bird. No one else will get that rich or famous. Essentially, it's a dead end job. Look at Lisa Robertson. Look at Kathy Levine. If it was SO great, they would be like Oprah. Lisa is still mugging for the camera and Kathy is...still...well...trying to get over her bad decision from years ago.

  22. the 1st time I saw this guy I was like, 'finally, a hot guy near my age on the Q.' i'm so tired of bob-in-the-kitchen and the other old guys. unfortunately, i've only seen this new delicious face hawking purses and other female stuff, and he was soooooo NOT into it, lol. he was trying so hard but i could tell he was just trying to get through it and fake enthusiasm. i put it on mute.

    ReplyDelete
  23. God, he's HOT AS HELL! I assumed he's gay, but once heard him refer to his female fiance, so maybe he's just confused and closeted or is just very metrosexual?

    Doesn't matter either way.. he's really comfortable on camera and has even sold me a product or two in the middle of the night when I can't sleep!

    Hope he gets off the graveyard shift. He's definitely ready for prime-time!

  24. I think he's just closeted, really. I mean, within the first 30 seconds of watching this guy show me a multicolored cowl neck tank with such enthusiasm...

    I think the girlfriend thing is just a cover up. I mean, he's telling us about this ugly, out of style long crinkly overly modest skirt on clearance, and just slips in "My girlfriend loves wearing this". I mean, come on, he's a fashionista. Do you really think he would let his "girlfriend" be caught dead in that??? No, No, NO! And right after, he mentions he carries a manbag, but this particular style of purse was not a manbag... come on.

    I do love him though. He makes everything on there look so damn enticing.

  25. Geez some of you are blantantly homophobic... Who cares if he is or is not gay !? and as far as "Presenting a multicolored cowl neck tank with such enthusiasm" - its called good selling !!. For the paycheck these hosts get, Id venture to say they can sell anything and do so with professionalism and enthusiasm.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I was reading about him the other day and it said he was raised super religious... DING DING DING!!! Also, on the Q Community it says he proposed to his fiance with a Diamonique ring??? Aren't those like 50 bucks? Ouch, I bet that made her feel like shit...

    ReplyDelete
  27. here's the scoop that i heard, he is apparently not with his fiance anymore and dating someone from QVC !? yet he has still been talking about his 'girlfriend' on air !? must be a cover up if you can move on that fast ? - very confusing

    i do think he is great at what he does though, but his poor fiance - how do you do that to someone !? who knows real story, but I don't know if I will watch him as much now

    in the Insider didn't it say they were dating for very long time !? hope they work it out, ive been through that and you have same problems with the next one if not worse ones

    who knows more ?? desperate for Q gossip :)

  28. I just found this googling Jonathan. Lol. It's so funny to hear people gossip about him... I knew both he and his former fiancé in LA, used to sing with them and got to know them pretty well. They're both cool people and iirc they tried for years to make it work. I think after he moved to PA they finally realized it wasn't going to. I saw him in Coffee Bean in LA in Sept and he mentioned his new gf, he seemed really happy... He even showed me a pic (I'm gay but I think she was hot!) ; ) And trust me, he is definitely not "covering up" anything. He may be metro, but he's as straight as they come... Sorry boys.

  29. to the guy above... just DIE

  30. To Anonymous Nov. 5th - Thanks for clearing that up Jonathan.

    ReplyDelete
  31. he is so flamboyant, so effeminate - i can't even stand to watch him! JUST COME OUT ALREADY.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Sorry, but he's GAY ... he "oozes" G A Y from every pore ... oh, and his "Fiance" Tracy - I'm sure "she's" a "he" ...

    ReplyDelete
  33. He is a terrible host. BORING and not as articulate as some. He constantly uses the same descriptions over and over UGHH

    ReplyDelete
  34. He's such a big 'ol QUEEN - it's SO OBVIOUS ... the only fiance he has is one with a dick between his legs ...

    Come on, Jonathan - come out of the closet sugar - you haven't fooled anyone - other than yourself ... Oh, and btw - everyone laughs everytime you mention your fiance "Tracy" - I'm surprised you don't hear all the laughing at the Studio when you mention "her" name ...

    Sister boy - come out, already - everyone knows you're a big 'ol Queen ...

  35. Hey there people, Isn't Tracy Morgan a guy!
    Tracy doesn't have to be a woman's name.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I knew him and the former fiancee from USC. He seemed gay from the start; she never believed it. He did propose with a prop ring and she eventually became horrified. THAT's when they had counseling (not for years; they were dating for years) and the minute she left he took up with Tracey who is a woman, an NFL cheerleader, QVC model and 7 years younger than he. He probably needs to be adored. I don't know if he is gay but I am glad fiancee #1 got away.

  37. Why do som gay men like Jonathan feel that they need to get married? ... He hasn't fooled anyone by this "beard" Tracey that he "married" ... he is SO gay and feminine - what a nelly queen ... Sorry Jonathan - nobody is buying that you're a hetro man that married a woman because he loves women ... well, maybe he loves sharing make-up and beauty secrets with them ... Beards are so 2008 ... C'mon Jonny girl - come out of the closet already, sister ! ...
