Eventually, only one suitor will win a date with the contestant, as long as that person can also accept the contestant’s baggage in a final role-reversal round.
University of Connecticut junior Brian Eilers didn't care that Annalise Lenihan usually goes home from a bar with someone other than the guy she came with.
The original “Baggage” is one of GSN’s highest-rated original shows, and is also the first GSN show to be nationally syndicated, the piece notes.
“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,” Springer said in a statement.
Naturally, I have spent the last three hours watching it on GSN’s You Tube channel and it is as delightfully trashy as Shoshanna and Wikipedia described.
— November 25, 2014 — GSN, the leader in game shows and competitive entertainment, announced today that BAGGAGE ON THE ROAD – a new, 20-episode traveling version of the network’s hit series “Baggage” – will debut on Wednesday, January 7 at pm ET/PT.
And that was the bottom line as the two UConn juniors became the first Connecticut singles to become a couple courtesy of a new dating show hosted by tabloid talk show host Jerry Springer.
The two are among several UConn students who are contestants on the new Game Show Network series "Baggage on the Road." The episodes are being taped Thursday and Friday at Waterbury's Palace Theater."I'm excited, it was fun," said a relieved looking Eilers minutes after he chose Annalise, and she, despite his "baggage,'' said 'yes' to a dinner-for-two date courtesy of the show and sealed the deal with a hug."I'm looking forward to going out with her," said Eilers, who hails from Simsbury and is an accomplished javelin thrower on UConn's track and field team.
Jerry Springer, host of BAGGAGE ON THE ROAD has become a cultural and civic icon.
In addition to being the host of “The Jerry Springer Show,” now in its 24th season, Springer has been a political pundit, lawyer, Emmy® Award-winning newscaster, country recording artist, international emcee and TV personality.
The bigger the suitcase, the bigger the secret or “baggage” is.
