Evine Bringing Paula Deen To State Fair

August 24, 2017

Evine may be No. 3 in the home shopping world, but it tries harder.

The network will be broadcasting live from the Minnesota State Fair, a 12-day event that attracts nearly 2 million visitors annually. Evine, of course, is based in that cold state.

On the fair’s first day, today Thursday, the telecast will include Southern cuisine queen Paula Deen, John O’Hurley (J. Peterman from Seinfeld), as well as Akos “The Solutionist” Jankura, a problem-solving expert.

“Simply put, the Minnesota State Fair is one of the biggest – and best – fairs in the U.S. and we couldn’t be more excited to be the first retailer of our kind to broadcast live from such an event,” Evine CEO Bob Rosenblatt said in a canned statement.

“The ‘Great Minnesota Get-Together’ is the perfect opportunity to bring the Evine experience to our Minnesota neighbors and have a chance to meet new friends of Evine as well.”

Fair-goers can watch “Paula Deen’s Kitchen,” a two-hour show that will broadcast live to Evine’s homes. She “will demonstrate how to whip up fair-food with ease, and with less fat, using her air fryer and other signature kitchen items,” according to Evine’s press release.

In addition to having a chance to be part of the live audience, fair attendees will have an opportunity to meet Deen and get a photo or autograph at 3 p.m.

“Being from the South, I’m no stranger to a good ol’ fair,” Deen said in her canned statement. “I’ve heard the Minnesota State Fair is truly in a league of its own and I am excited to be a part of one of the greatest get-togethers in the country. I can’t wait to try some classic fair foods, test my hand at carving a butter princess, cook up my favorite dishes, and get to meet all of the wonderful people at the Evine stage.”

Following Deen, at 3 p.m. “Pet Shoppe with John O’Hurley” will broadcast live and present pet-care products. As with Deen, fans will get a chance to meet O’Hurley starting at noon.

The final live broadcast hour of the day will feature Akos “The Solutionist.” He will be live at 5 p.m.

Viewers are also invited to watch a Facebook Live show featuring Deen at 2:30 p.m. and a YouTube Live show covering an “Evine Found at the Fair” product search at 6 p.m. Fair-goers will also have opportunities to win prizes, take photos and meet some of Evine’s hosts.

“John has made his mark on the dog community, both as a New York Times best-selling author and host of ‘The National Dog Show’ for the past 15 years. He also has a quick, witty style that we feel will make for a highly entertaining show. We’re thrilled to partner with John in this endeavor and look forward to expanding our pet business while inviting new viewers to Evine with a show that will make them smile.”

Premiering Friday, February 17 at midnight, 6am, 11am and 6pm ET, “Pet Shoppe with John O’Hurley” will offer a variety of unique and innovative items for both dogs and cats. During the show, O’Hurley will share his expertise with viewers and provide education on different dog breeds, with the intent to help pet owners better understand their four-legged family members.

“Pets are my passion and having the opportunity to share that with viewers in such a fun way is a dream come true,” said O’Hurley. “As a dog owner myself, I believe it is essential to understand what your pet needs and the best ways to care for them. By educating viewers of the temperament of different breeds and arming them with the right products, I hope I can help pet owners everywhere live happier lives with their furry friends.”

Here is the boilerplate on O’Hurley:

John O’Hurley has become one of the most versatile players in entertainment. As the longstanding host of ‘The National Dog Show presented by Purina,’ John is probably best known as J. Peterman from the record-breaking, hit sitcom ‘Seinfeld.’

O’Hurley’s career began in daytime television where he appeared on several soap operas. He also starred on the inaugural edition of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars,” ultimately winning the championship. John went on to play Billy Flynn, the male lead in Broadway’s ‘Chicago’, and has since hosted the syndicated game show, ‘Family Feud.’

He has also written three books, including New York Times’ bestsellers: ‘It’s Okay to Miss The Bed On the First Jump,’ ‘Before The Dog Can Eat Your Homework, First You Have To Do It: Life Lessons From A Wise Old Dog To A Young Boy,’ and ‘The Perfect Dog,’ published by Penguin Books. John is an animal lover who’s thrilled to share his lifetime experiences to help advise viewers who love their pets as much as he loves his own.
