The Rug and Home Girl Revealed!

Her name, that is. She's Jamie Simpson.
Here's an audio slideshow about how she does those walk-backward-talk-fast TV commercials.




This photo is from GreenvilleOnline.com.

Update: The gallery of 50 pics of Jamie seems to have disappeared from the internet.




But I did find her MySpace page. Apparently our Rug and Home girl is now married with a baby!

Some of my work associates went to school with her and know her well. Certainly a cute girl. However, she may well have THE most irritating voice on TV. I often MUTE the set when she's on. I would never buy a product "hawked" by her. I understand she started out as a hairdresser. She should have kept her "day job."

When I was growing up and would come running into the house all excited over something, my mother would say CALM DOWN, I can't understand a WORD YOU ARE SAYING! I think this applies to these annoying commercials! What is she taking? I would not buy anything from whatever she might advertise - NOTHING! Is she married to the guy who does the Kia of Greer commericals??

Why doesn't Rug and Home save some money on advertising by simply showing a large chalk board with RUGS hanging around it. They could get someone with extreme nails to run them across the chalk board - it would have the same effect!

Yes, her Rug & Home ads are very annoying. I have sent a number of messages to Rug & Home asking that she be removed. We used to buy from Rug & Home, but not in the future.

I love her commercials. Toyota of Bristol now has her in commercials so I would consider a Toyota.
She starts my day off perfect!! Jamie's looks and voice and coordination is fantastic!!!!!! :)

Get over the voice thing! I'd love to hear that voice first thing in the morning....

I think that there are certainly more annoying voices on the television. She is a very successful, independent woman. Are we jealous perhaps? Rock on Jamie, good for you gal!

Yes, I agree, Jamie is beautiful and talented, and the bomb, but I'm curious about who's the lady featured in the latest commercials

I was glad to hear the positive comments because I agree. Jamie deserves much more respect and appreciation for her accomplishments than a bunch of morons who have nothing more to do than to bash people. What's all this "revealed?" She's never been a secret.....I watched an interview with her on TV a few years ago and she worked her way up to opening her own advertising agency in Atlanta. She is far better than the three individuals Rug and Home has doing their commercials now. So corny!!

I notice they still feature Jamie on some commercials. Sorta' looks like old footage revamped with the "new format"??
So, who supposedly "moved on", she, or them?
I think the new guys are good too, it's just a different concept.
My original question here was who was the new girl. I read somewhere that the three of them were brothers and sister (obviously) the "Schultz" siblings, I think.

By the way, here's a link to Jamies' business site. (I think.)

http://www.jamiesimpsonmarketing.com/

Pretty sure that's it.
I remember looking at it a while back and there were some photos and a profile of her, as well as another lady ("associate") who I saw with her on McKinney Dodge commercials. Along with a couple of other folks, I think.
They don't seem to be there now, but I'm pretty sure this is it.

I want to know who the blonde is on the NEW Rug and Home commercials NOT JAMIE! Damn it boy she can work a runway

I want to know who the blonde is in the NEW Rug and Home commercials, NOT JAMIE and her annoying voice but the NEW chick. Damn it boy she can work a runway with those rugs. She will be famous one day. I know this because I have an eye for talent.

According to Rug and Home on Facebook, she and the 2 guys are brothers and sister, the "Schultz siblings". That's all they had to say. "One of them Schultz girls from Gaffney"...I reckon'?
And, yes, she does an OUTSTANDING JOB.

The girl doing the new rug and home commercials is freakin beautiful,seriously when the commercial comes on my eyes are glued to the tv,they don't keep the cameras on her long enough...

Could not agree with you more.

Long before I saw this blog full of jealous bloggers, I told my girlfriend how much I loved jamies voice. I eventually told here I think jamies gorgeous. Btw, I watch all your commercials twice. And I HATE car commercials.

I miss seeing Jamie on those Rug and Home commercials. Yes, her voice is a bit shrill, but that's who she is and I love it! I hope and pray that she has moved on to another challenging endeavor. Jamie is a beautiful woman and I love her to death. Good luck girl !

Jamie, where are you now? Let us hear from you. Take care...your biggest fan!

If I were married, i'd love it to be Jamie. I really like her voice, and, she's a real looker too !

SHe is absolutely adorable. I miss her commercials. I just saw one with the new girl, who while attractive just does not have what Jamie does.
