7 Things I’ve Learned About Hosting
Is interviewing celebrities something you’ve always wanted to do? Is hosting and starting your own show a passion of yours? Well, I’m here to tell you just do it! You don’t necessarily need a coach to talk to people or interview people. Just simply bee you! I’m going to share some of the things I’ve learned as a host.
In the beginning of my hosting career, I used to never rewatch footage until I learned I had a strong accent. I used to hate when other people watched my interviews in front of me. I used to have an editor in college before having to eventually start editing my own stuff. But Oh God! How much I’ve learned by watching myself and the little things I do on camera.
Red Carpets Saved My Life!
If it weren’t for red carpets I wouldn’t know how to think off the top of my head. I used to write out questions before interviewing people and once I attended red carpets more I learned to think so quickly because it’s so fast. Thanks, Reina Royale for saving my hosting life.
Having My Own Media Outlet
I like having my own brand and own company. I, unfortunately, don’t take orders very well from other people. I don’t like companies telling me what I should and should not ask celebrities. I also don’t like asking gossipy questions and I think that is what has helped my brand and relationships with people. Some people like working for big media outlets because they get on bigger carpets but baby I’ll wait it out.
Learning the Business
By going to film school, interning and getting mentors I really learned all aspects of entertainment jobs. I have received a lot of knowledge in everything.
Shadowing a Host
When I first started out I shadowed a red-carpet correspondent Reina Royale and I also shadowed a host on set Diana Madison. I learned so much from those two women just for a couple of hours.
I’ve learned to really bee confident in my brand and what I put out even if I messed up. Because my old interviews vs now I’ve improved so much.
You’re Going to Mess Up & Fumble Your Words
Even the most successful hosts have messed up. I highly give it up to hosts who do live events. That’s an advance skill of hosting.
One thing I’ve learned is just to bee Bianca Bee. I don’t compare myself to anyone or trying to bee like anyone. I literally stay in my own lane.
