, if you notice certain products are aired and the host of HSN must either read from a script or a telaprompt. But after a while these hosts that represent HSN are rehearsing the pitch and the product it self for selling it and explaining the uses and how great the item is. If the item is a hot sale where a lot of people are going to buy it believe me the sales rep is not convincing the public it is the product and for what uses it is needed by the public. On average pots and pans are usually a rip off and the average house wife who rarely cooks would not know a good pan from a lousy one, only cooks and chefs and stewards know the real good pans are not green, or all copper or aluminum. The real saying goes like this you spend good money you will get a good pan. A complete pan and for what they are used for will last for a couple years, On HSN the pans are for home use but are not commercial type uses in a kitchen at a hotel or hospital. And good pans run about $600.00 dollars to about $1000.00 dollars.
The hosts of HSN can start out at around $30,000.00 per year and work themselves up to a six figure income. According to how much they generate in sales through bonuses, if they become popular they can move up quickly if the viewers really like them and their sales pitch.
