Attack Of The Staff: Alison Haislip, On-Air Talent

EMorton
Posted April 15, 2010 - By Eugene Morton

Attack of the Staff: Alison Haislip »


We have a special treat for you today. Normally, we hand pick one of the AOTS staffers, whom you never see, and put them out on front street. However, this edition of Attack of the Staff will focus on someone you know well, or at least you think you do, our own Alison Haislip. Recently, she sat down with AOTB and went on at length about growing up in a small town in New Jersey, her passion for acting, her musical prowess, what it was like becoming a part of the G4 family, the wild adventures she's had traveling the world for your amusement and what she does when she's not in front of the cameras. If you really want to know more about Alison, you'll definitely want to watch the above video.

Check back on Monday for the Attack of the Staff interview with Tech Expert, Chris Hardwick!

    I was lucky enough to meet Alison after seeing Chris Hardwick perform at the Hollywood Improv about a year ago. She is one of the nicest, most genuine television personalities I've had the pleasure of meeting. Being really attractive certainly didn't hurt. B team for life!

    It's great to hear someone from a hometown smaller than my own can find success. It gives me hope the same will happen to me one day. :)

    I enjoyed the interview. Allison has the vibe about her that says "I'll take any dare within reason...and maybe beyond that if there's no cameras around and no one else is watching.". I like that about her. I only hope the lucky person dating her appeciates that special vibe and cherishes each and every moment.

    And I'm guessing this makes me sound like a stalker, doesn't it? ;)

    I love Alison Haislip! She's got a great on air persona and is a true geek. She is way more qualified for her job then Olivia.

    Nice job, Ms Haislip. Very informative. And I sincerely think you have a great on-air presence. Don't know why some people are so critical and hating on you. I may not know you, but what I do know is you still have the most beautiful eyes I've ever seen. And you are one of the top three most beautiful women I've ever seen. I wish you continued success in everything.

    She's got a really good attitude. I don't know if I would if I worked nearly as much as she does. The beer probably helps...

    I'm so happy for you Alison, in every way you seem so happy about your life. This is a rare quality that some day I hope to reach. I always thought you were cool & wish you had more air time on the show. Chris Hardwick & Blair Herter seemed to always try to shut you down with their jokes though. I've never forgotten Chris's "Haislip" joke. :-P

    Allison and Kevin are great together. The show is awesome when those 2 are doing the show. Glad she has a major role. Does any one else think that Those two have a thing going on?

    I definitely have to say that Alison is my favorite girl on G4. She is down to earth, funny, spunky, and very attractive. I prefer her over Olivia because she is livelier on the show and Olivia just seems stuck up at times. Of all the girls I'd definitely like to go out with her because I would have the most fun with her. Keep it up girl.

    it's a good thing allison is the only blond in AOTS and working at g4 studios. She has a good charisma, unlike that 1 blond playboy chick who guess hosted AOTS with CHris Hardwick.. man.. she was AWFUL as hell... G4 should never have her back in the studio again.. if they would hire another blond, They should include CARISSA WALFORD as a Guess host spot for AOTS. She has a good accent, and plus she can actually Give a good performance hosting. As of Allison, it be nice to see her hosting AOTS and it be cool if we see more of her on the show , showing some more skin like olivia hehe.. other than that, ALLISON IS HOT!!

    I'm sorry, but:
    You are a fracking idiot.

    Give me something you don't like about her and not 'I dunno what it is about her', and maybe I'll listen to your opinion. Otherwise, Imo she's just too awesome for you to comprehend.
    Watch G4: Get learned.

    To those posting harsh comments...look, everyone is entitled to their observations or views or what-not, and I completely respect that. But...how the flip could you 'not' like Alison. I mean, she's like the awesome little sister of the G4 network.

    I love every single female member of the overall team, but sometimes you can find things to nit-pick about with some of them. But, come on, Alison should not be among them. She's got a hell of alot of talent as a field correspondent, and in studio she seems like one of the guys, more so than even Olivia sometimes.

    Anyway, this seems like a dang love letter, or a, "Leave Britney Alone!" moment, but it ain't. I'm just saying, if you're going to post something harsh about someone, be clear about why you think the person is not good at their job. Don't say you hate or dislike the person if you don't even know them in real life. Come on, folks.

    i dont know why everyone is talking crap. i think Allison is a good addition to the network. ya, she has a few slip-ups here and there but we're talking about live television. everyone else has just as many. it was very interesting learning about her background.

    What did they see in you? Well, you are a girl, who not only plays video games, but just happens to have blonde hair. And they probably needed some blondeness on the network.

    Oh, having boobs didn't hurt either!

    I don't know what it is about her but she gets on my nerves. I hated seeing Layla leave for greener pastures and somehow I feel Olivia is going to be leaving soon to do the same and Allison is going to take her place. That will be a Saaaad day.
