I like the spotlight - whether it's on stage or off! When I auditioned to be a QVC host, I was chosen as one of 15 finalists out of 750 people. I think I succeeded in getting that far because I'm authentic and upbeat in front of a camera, with a combination of humor and humility that viewers find appealing.
