I don't know what happened to it, it was here the other day. Someone posted links about Scott Parker from JTV and some kind of criminal background, it was something about how he had been arrested when he was a high school teacher for complaints by two minor girls.

I just happened to catch a few minutes of jewelry television-- and I CANNOT believe Scott Parker is a host... He looks drunk and homeless-- I would never buy jewelry from someone like him... It's pretty funny, I thought it was a joke!!

I would have liked to watch that show. It must be really funny. I wonder what the reason was to make the show more exciting maybe!

Do you know the link to this article? Or where I can get it?
I've always liked Scott on JTV.I was suprised to see him gone.I loved how he made gemstones dance... Dancing gemstones to the music. Gonna miss him.

His real name is Scott Hood. Not Scott Parker. Link is below.

I can validate this as he was my choir teacher when I was in school in 1996.

Saw this long ago with photo .. Thin in the Knoxville news...not sure...name was Scott Hood...but certainly had to be Parker...no two people look that much alike...unless identical twins...amazing that JTV does or did no background checks on employees....perhaps they did and hired him anyway...seemed to know about gems and other things too..thought he was fun to watch.

Well, he's back practically one year to the week he left in 2011 so abruptly. I always enjoyed his shows in spite of knowing his checkered background some years back.(His real birth name is James Scott Hill, Scott Parker possibly being a later legal name assumed. I never quite believed the charges levied against him, and neither did the courts. He was never a criminal, only accused.) I see him listed only once this week again and again paired with Casey. He appears in picture on the list of hosts, so it would seem that he's back more or less permanently. They haven't posted as yet a new blurb bio on him. That's probably to come in a week or two.

He said this afternoon, "I'm back." "It's very nice to be back; an honor to be back." And back he is. Overall, probably a good thing for most JTV viewers. For every detractor, Scott probably counts 25 admirers

I bought my first Gemstone on JTV with Scott. I missed him on the show. Regardless of what he was accused of, he knows his Gems. He is brilliant at what he does. Sometimes its hard being a teacher,especially when years later, some sexual minded students who came-on to their superiors and later want to be spiteful and accused them of rape or whatever. It happens quite often! Some are saying his name is Hill and some Hood, whatever, apparently he is free. In America, you are innocent until PROVEN guilty. I'm watching his show right now and am glad he is back. He and Cheryl Ells are my favorite Show Hosts. Yes JTV Hosts can be a little rough around the edges, but so are some of their customers. Regardless of all the accusations, He's back and getting paid. By the way, he is a christian, and I'm sure whatever he might have done in his life, God has forgiven him. Now, either shop or get off the pot!

Sorry about listing Scott's birthname as Hill. It is Hood. I don't know where the Hill came from.
On his last program, Scott indicated that his return was a temporary one and that status might change, presumably to permanent. Today I noticed that Scott and Casey are again paired at 8 pm. But it is the last appearance listed for Scott for the near future. JTV stafff told me that he does not appear on the next two week's schedule (viewers only see programming planned a week ahead). No information about further appearances or his status available at this point. If you are a fan of his, I'd suggest watching at 8 pm Eastern time, and perhaps buying an item or two (all shopping show hosts on channels like JTV, QVC, etc. are judged in large part on sales made during their shows). Such purchases would be in support of Scott's retention on some basis. I think his shows are interesting and informative enough to warrant his retention. We'll see if Scott himself offers any information as to his status tonight. For whatever the observation is worth, his photo still appears as of now on the Meet the Hosts list. Future retention of the photo over the next two weeks may be an indicator of whether he's still considered as staff. I and many others hope he will be.

I have missed Scott. He is very knowlegable and informative. I think JTV would be at a loss to lose him. I bought my first gemstone parcel from Scott. The first of many. Hope JTV sees what an asset he is to the company. Welcome back Scott.

Scott is back, but he is only doing a few shows for now, as he has been employed elsewhere (a Jeweler I believe) grading gems. He will be coming back permanetly soon. He stated as much on one of his shows. Whether or not he was accused of something in 09, he was not found guilty since his only departure from JTV was 8/11 to now and he was working elsewhere, not in jail. If he is as you say Hood, his peers found him innocent so drop it.
