Jerry springer dating show baggage
During season three, a half-hour special entitled Baggage First Dates aired during a five-hour "Best of Baggage Marathon." The special followed a couple who had previously appeared on the show talking to Springer about what happened on their first date following their appearance.
GSN announced plans to order twenty episodes of a traveling version of the series. Despite earning respectable ratings by GSN's standards, Baggage has received mixed critical reviews.
These secrets can include bad habits, strange relationship preferences, issues with one's past, or strange hobbies.
After the three other contestants are introduced, they each open the smallest piece of baggage, and explain the secrets they contain.
The hitch: Contestants have to reveal their faults and foibles.
Players will carry suitcases onstage to represent the baggage they'll confess to and defend, GSN said Tuesday.
"People feel comfortable telling me their secrets, that I won't be judgmental."After the three contestants are pared down to one, the potential date must own up to a fault of his or her own.
