From GSN:

Everyone brings baggage into a relationship-but only on GSN’s new dating game show Baggage do three contestants and one "dater" bring it all to the very first date! On each half-hour episode of Baggage, Jerry Springer guides the fun as one dater chooses among three contestants who reveal the intimate secrets and hidden flaws that are typically kept under wraps to impress a first date

Any comments?

One more new show to clutter GSN while the classics gather dust? Talk to the hand.

I marvel at what people will reveal about themselves just for their 15 minutes of fame. Abducted by aliens, not once but twice? Wow, what are the chances of that happening?

I know, right? I got hooked on the show after seeing a clip on "Talk Soup." I still want to know what the deal is with the guy who lives in a boarding house.

This show differs from Jerry Springer in that the contestants still have their teeth.

I also caught a clip of this on The Soup. I had to watch it. I've been watching the episodes on YouTube. I just hope some of these secrets are made up. People reveal way too much!

I see where GSN is getting more and more into Trash TV. Too bad.

Jerry Springer has the trashiest show on TV, and now he's brought more trash to the GSN. Seems they're taking off all the good old shows and putting on these new shows, filling them with porn and using MC's that should be use car salesmen.

Jerry Springer's has the most disgusting shows on TV. I hope the kids aren't watching those ads he puts on.

I have to say that this show is my guilty pleasure. I don't catch it everyday, but when I do I just crack up the entire time. My favorite is the guy that revealed he "was a two minute man". The girl looked at him like "say what"?? It was so funny. Needless to say his baggage wasn't accepted.

People are crazy to reveal all this weird stuff about them. But it makes for some game show heaven moments.

I doubt any of the things they reveal are real. They're scripts, and they're paid, either with money or prizes. This show stinks. And when someone advertises that they have a small penis I can only imagine what a kid watching this sort of thing must wonder about? It's awful. Get rid of it.

Also I don't believe for a minute it's the most popular show on GSN. That's why hardly anyone posts on this forum. Anybody who believes these idiotic remarks is making it up. But, some people will do anything for money, even humiliate themselves.

This show is too raunchy to be in a time slot kids can watch. There are so many great OLD game shows that can be broadcast in this time slot. I never thought any games show's contestants could have less class and dignity than the ones on "The Price Is Right".

IMO, the way that many of the contestants seem to mug for the camera reeks of pure phoneyness to me.

I don't have a problem with this show airing as early as it does. I don't think it is necessary for cable channels to do the job of babysitting children. I have seen far worse on normal over the air channels.

As an adult, I shouldn't have to wait until after the "family hour" to view programming that isn't suitable for children, parental responsibility is the solution.

Last night's show featured a contestant who was revealed to be a gay porn star, his name was Adam. Does anybody have any info on this guy?

Why would anyone want information on a porn star? Ick. I think the guys and gals cotumes and baggage are all made up by the producers or writers. I wonder who makes it up? The contestants all seem to be actors or models or worse, possible porn stars. The show is absurd and boring. I watched it twice and that was quite enough. The show is for morons. Of course, Jerry Springer will do anything for attention and $$$$. His show is ridiculous. But then what can you expect from Jerry Springer? He and his shows are disgusting.

I love this show. I don't take it seriously, I just go along for the ride. I don't think that the show is all from a script. The thing about alot of the baggage is that they aren't as big as the description would lead you to believe. Like there was one woman who's baggage was that she dated a bank robber. That is something that sounds really bad and she got kicked off but her explanation is that she didn't even know this until the cops came banging on her door.

Eh, I see no problem with a little bit of trash to go along with my other viewing habits. I honestly have usually ahve it on at work while i'm taking a nap but it's fine enough way to pass the time.

I had a question about a episode I saw where Michelle (the almost nerdy, married biologist) from a couple of seasons back on Big Brother was on as a contestant. I was confused enough to see her on the show meaning she got a divorice but her big baggage was that she openly dates women while dating guys. None of this came out during her stint on Big Brother, so it was quite surprising to me. Did anyone else see this?

Speaking of reality contestants, tonight had Schatar (who was given the misnomer of "Hottie") who was on Flavor of Love. I was surprised her biggest baggage wasn't "I was kicked off Flavor of Love for being a golddigger," but I guess "I want to get knocked up by an NFL Player" is in the same vein.

I remember this...and I recall that, on the live feeds, she actually did cop to bisexuality...but BB kept that conveniently out of the broadcast shows.

And yeah...I saw the show and at first was all 'She looks familliar...' Glad she told me who she was...kinda drove me a little batty at first.

It's wrong how much I enjoy the guilty pleasure of this show.

When Shatar was on and had her dog in her arms. Her dog throws up. The poor dog, but that was some funny stuff right there!

Just saw a commercial for this. Springer is in a blonde wig and the voice over states, 'end of a career.' I don't know what to say! His career ending move happened a long time ago.

I hope it is the end of his career. And to think, he ran for office. I don't remember if it was mayor or governor or what. But get rid of him and that stupid show.

His runs at Congress and at becoming the Governor of Ohio failed but he did become the mayor of Cincinnatti. And then he was dumb enough to write a check to a prostitute and when it bounced their tryst became public and thus ended his time as mayor.

This show seems unfair. One woman's secret was "I'm obsessed with the color pink" while the other two admitted to much more embarrassing things IMO like "I like smelling my own breast sweat."

I kind of wonder why three supposedly attractive, young women are competing to date some schmuck they've never even met.

Ah, sweardigan, I see you must be catching the Baggage marathon today too. There was one on with a female main contestant and two women and a man competing. I'd never seen a bi Baggage before.

Agreed with some of the others - some of this `baggage' is so tame and most likely exaggerated. This crazy orange contestant's baggage earlier was that she eats toilet paper. Later she busted out a roll and took a bite. She needs to be on 'My strange addiction' instead. She was the color of waffles and she reminded me of a Muppet. Her WILD antics grated.
