QVC Host Cassie Slane Faints On Air, Co-Host Continues To Hawk Products (VIDEOS)

Posted: Updated:

QVC knows that in the world of live television, the show must go on. So when a QVC host fainted live on air, her co-host continued to hawk the products without skipping a beat.

On Sunday night, host Dan Hughes welcomed QVC guest host Cassie Slane to sell a kid-friendly Android tablet, but in the middle of the segment something went awry. Slane began to pat her chest and appear disoriented. Then, the QVC host fainted live on air.

Although the camera cut to a shot of the product, Hughes, who did ask if Slane was okay, continued to pitch the FunTab Pro for children. QVC's Carolyn Gracie replaced Slane and finished the segment with Hughes.

Slane, a mother of three, took to her Facebook page to address the fainting episode. "Thanks to everyone for your kind words," she wrote. "I am feeling alot [sic] better today!"

A QVC spokesman said Slane suffered a "brief fainting spell" and has recovered, according to the New York Daily News.

Gracie responded to a Facebook fan who asked why Slane fainted, according to ABC News, saying: "She had a couple of fainting spells due to low blood sugar. Poor thing. She is such a nice girl."

As for Hughes, the QVC host has received a heap of criticism for continuing the segment even after Slane passed out.

"Woman faints into your arms & you keep selling crap...Very disappointed in your response to her emergency...What a guy....!!!" a Facebook user posted on Hughes' profile. "How could [have] anyone watched this happen to someone, and continue to let the show go on? It's all about the money!!!!! I hope she is ok," wrote another.

Hughes did get some support. "Poor Dan. I am sure no matter what action you chose when Cassie fainted SOMEBODY would not have liked it," another Facebook user posted on his profile. "You did what folks in showbiz are supposed to do. CARRY ON! Good job."
