“It’s hard to be shocked in my line of work, but I’m continually amazed at how revealing the contestants on the show have been,” said Springer in a statement.
Jerry Springer is bringing new “Baggage” to the Game Show Network, with the network ordering 20 episodes of a spin-off version of the dating show, titled “Baggage on the Road.” The new series will travel to four U. cities, beginning with Austin, Texas, and Baton Rouge, La.
The US series, which has also been picked up in Australia, has featured contestants with unusual bad habits and embarrassing secrets such as "I share a bed with my grandmother" and "My partner must dress up as Santa Claus".
is a half-hour comedic dating game show where one contestant chooses from three potential partners, all of whom come with their own physical and emotional "baggage" that could eliminate them from the competition.
TV shows are nothing new to Juber, who has also been on “Face The Music,” where he reigned as champion for four episodes, “Deal or No Deal,” “The Joker’s Wild,” “Shop ‘Til You Drop,” “Scrabble,” “Wild Animal Games,” “Quicksilver,” “1 vs.
100,” and “Baggage,” Jerry Springer’s dating show, where he won a date. Juber said, “It’s not an easy task to get on national TV shows,” adding it’s an art he’s “perfected over the years.” “It takes talent, quick thinking, along with energy, personality, and a lot of showmanship,” he said.
Three contestants are then introduced, each accompanied by three pieces of baggage: a small one, a medium one, and a large one, with each one containing a corresponding secret.
Growing up with five stepbrothers, according to Heather Chadwell, made her a tomboy.
The show has earned high ratings by GSN's standards; despite this, it has also received mixed critical reception.
