Bob Circosta is a television host he has a net worth of $400 million. Bob Circosta has earned his net worth as television's first ever home shopping host and has achieved over one billion dollars in personal product sales on live television. Circosta is one of the pioneers of the home shopping industry. Circosta hosted a Florida-based radio talk show in 1977. As a favor to station owner Bud Paxson, Circosta started selling avocado-green-colored can openers for $9.95 on the show and sold everyone of them within the hour.

Bob Circosta is television's first ever home shopping host and has achieved over one billion dollars in personal product sales on live television. His offices are in Clearwater, Florida, just a few miles from the Home Shopping Network's corporate building. Circosta is considered one of the pioneers of the home shopping industry.
Back in 1977 Circosta hosted a Florida-based radio talk-show, and an advertiser had plenty of products to sell -- avocado-green-colored can openers -- but lacked the funds to purchase any airtime. As a favor to station owner Bud Paxson, Circosta started selling these products for $9.95 over the airwaves... and both men were stunned by the audience response. Within the hour, Circosta's listeners purchased every last can opener left in the studio.
Recognizing the vast sales potential, Paxson then founded a local home shopping cable station, and later launched nationwide with the Home Shopping Network (HSN). Bob Circosta was their first ever home shopping host, also becoming one of the world's most prolific, most identifiable salesmen in the process. HSN was the first home shopping network in America and the beginning of the electronic retailing industry, one that now includes such influential companies as QVC, Amazon.com, and eBay.
Personally extolling the virtues of over 75,000 different products and netting over 20,000 hours of live, on-air TV selling, Circosta achieved individual product sales in excess of one billion dollars, earning him the title of "The Billion Dollar Man."
Circosta still makes regular appearances on HSN and also hosts the syndicated TV program What a Great Idea! nationwide, where he scours the landscape for eye-catching new products and inventions to debut. He also serves as the "Sales Coach to the Stars," personally training such well-known celebrities as Ed McMahon, Vanna White, Jessica Simpson, Lauren Hutton, Patti LaBelle, Frankie Avalon, Dixie Carter, Priscilla Presley, Jennifer Flavin, Florence Henders
