She's just trying to get a closer look at this AMAZING product!

And this happened before... and it appears they dealt with it the same way.

So, basically, they know she has some sort of issue, and just figured "fark it, if it happens, we just pull her off the set and keep going".

Mitch and Murray would be proud.

What about if the host takes a katana to the spleen... what do you do then? keep selling!

Or D) Call Mike Rowe and ask him to fill in.

He worked at QVC about 20 years ago, and some of the pieces are hilarious. Go to YouTube and search for "mike rowe qvc".

This one is great: Mike Rowe sells the Katsak on QVC

I headed over to Google to do an image search for a picture of a soul to post with some caption along the lines of "...or lack of one of these". However, I spelled "soul" incorrectly and ended up finding this on some French blog:

This pleases me greatly.

El-Oh-El.

They cut away and the guy keeps on talking to not alarm viewers, I doubt he is a trained medic or knows what to do. What do you want to happen? Pull the feed, have the guy shout she's dying she's dying or something. I fail to be outraged by this.

This thread just led me on a 15-minute detour of live TV bloopers.

another QVC host goes out cold while hawking their wares... apparently this happens all the damn time.
 
2012-10-09 12:34:59 PM  
What were they supposed to do, cut to a commercial?

whereas the lightwieght who went down probably didn't even TRY to pitch the paramedics who revived her. She had thier undivided attention for about 10-15 minutes and how many units did she move? Wasted opportunities like that arre what separate the salesmen from the wanna-bes

"ok folks, you KNOW we will have to stop soon to help my colleague. CALL NOW! wait, the director is saying we have five more minutes, so hurry folks, this might be your last chance!"

Hahaha - yea some of Mike Rowe's clips on youtube are hilarious. Apparently he got fired there 3 times and they kept hiring him back....

"Looks like we have a new item just listed...it's an unconscious QVC salesman. Normally, this would run you about $3000, but if you call right now, QVC will slash the price and sell him to you for just 3 payments of $19.95! You can use your unconscious QVC salesman as a door stop...as a paperweight..or you can skin him and wear his flesh like a Snuggie! The possibilities are endless! But call now, before he comes to! Operators are standing by!"
