      Default Female Presenter on TJC


      ADVERTISING


      Who is this woman on TJC (think her name is Nicola, but not sure). She's flogging handbags and has a really hectoring style of presentation (quote: "well, are you going to wait until they've all nearly gone? I want a sell-out"). About 10 mins ago, she told us she has items coming on for all ages, from very young to even if you are going through the menopause and she has items for menopausal care!! What is the matter with this woman? If this is the best TJC can employ, then they need to give up, she's awful, and keeps making silly noises as well, almost yodelling. What is the matter with these channels, that they believe the way to make us buy is to hector us and speak in a dictatorial manner? Personally, nothing is more guaranteed to make me NOT buy.

      I don't know about her "wanting a sell-out" - I know what she would get if I employed her (namely, a P45).

    I used to religiously watch the Jewellery channel and occasionally buy some decent jewellery but hardly linger on it since it went down market .

    Some of the cheap bags are an eyesore.I know not everyone can afford a Lulu Guiness,but its an insult to present some of this rubbish as desirable.I can get better down my local market.

    I don't recognise any of the presenters and cannot warm to any of them.

    I occasionally watch Chloe ,but only because her sheer audacity in her selling technique always amazes me .

    I've bought some good stuff from them, items that I bought for myself or for others years ago, and they are still going strong. Sadly, though, the channel has changed a lot in recent years, and not for the better. Chloe creases me up when she's selling market stall cheapie stuff, but behaving as though she's presenting items from Harry Winston or Tiffany's. And her continual mentioning of so-called celebrities "wearing these designs" drives you nuts. Enough, Chloe.

    I too have some great bargains . Wouldn't bother with them now they have become like a sell all market and the jewellery isn't the main focus anymore. The celebrity clientele story makes me laugh a lot.Do they really think we believe that?

    I'm surprised they haven't brought in Elisa Portelli as she was also a powersuited presenter on bid and was actually capable of controlling Peter Simon (believe it or not)

    I can imagine 'controlling' PS would involve something akin to tasering him ,sitting him in a chair and using physical restraints , including a gag. However, since these would not be allowed on live TV it makes one wonder how the heck she managed it. It just shows that he was able to control, or with guidance control his behaviour.

    She would often put him back in his place etc.... but she did revel in the shystering with him. I'm surprised he didn't bring her to IW with him.
