Television Host, Public Speaker, and Marketing Whiz
Lemar Scott is a self-proclaimed “word nerd” who specializes in communications as a: published writer, spoken word artist, introductory signer (ASL), commercial & radio talent, and vlogger. He is best known as the resident Gem & Style Expert on the Home Shopping Network, reaching over 120 million viewers through a style described as “edu-tainment.”
Unknowingly dabbling in his life’s work, Lemar’s very first on-camera appearance was at elementary age while filming a segment titled Inside Your Schools. As his interest in language arts burgeoned, he applied himself to a marketing communications degree from Johnson & Wales University. While there, he was identified as one of the top 20 marketing students in the nation and was flown to New York to participate in a “think tank” for We TV Network. The resulting reality series would premiere in January of the following year.
After graduating with the highest honors, his interest was piqued by the University’s Baking & Pastry Arts program. Lemar graduated with a degree and gained certification from the American Culinary Federation as a Pastry Chef in 2010, allowing his newfound passion for the culinary arts to converge with television. He has collaborated with many of South Florida’s visiting Food Network stars and recently played the part of a baker in a movie made for Hallmark Network.
In 2016, after many years supporting LVMH Group, Lemar was certified through the Gemological Institute of America and traveled to Jaipur India, the gemstone cutting capital of the world. Learning and understanding the art of lapidary was the precursor to his own prime-time jewelry show on Gems TV. Solidifying his persona of “gem expert,” he also later became a Certified Pearl Specialist in 2019.
Lemar has a colorful range of interests and experiences, each thankfully lending itself to his overarching love of television and broadcast.
