Meet Forbes Riley, Queen of the Infomercial

Your Savvy Shopper is still a relative newcomer to the world of DRTV, a world that has its own constellation of stars completely unknown to those who don’t watch infomercial and home shopping channels. Others, like Forbes Riley, may seem familiar even if you can’t put a name to the face. Forbes is 49 years old and has been around for decades, performing as an actor, TV host and spokesperson. I became aware of Ms. Riley when I learned she would be appearing on Discovery Channel show Pitchmen with Billy Mays and Anthony Sullivan promoting her new product, Spin Gym. Watch her demo reel below to see a small sample of her thousands of hours of television appearances.
