TV network executives face all sorts of difficult decisions but here is one of the more strange ones from recent memory: the Game Show Network had to choose between Jerry Springer and Octo-Mom as host of its new game show!

As reported exclusively, Octo-Mom was in talks with GSN to host a new dating show. And we were also first to report those talks broke down.

The reason, it appears, is because the network found someone it likes better than Nadya Suleman: Jerry Springer!

The one-time mayor of Cincinnati, better known as the host of his eponymous chair-throwing, hair-pulling talk show, will host Baggage, a new show.

Three contestants will try to win a date but must reveal all their faults – and more. To symbolize their “baggage” they will bring suitcases on stage.

When the final contestant is chosen, the date will then have to reveal his or her own baggage.

No word yet if Octo-Mom will make an appearance as a participant. And if she does, she could start with her Tuesday dilemma – a balloon mortgage note on her home is due and the creditor is threatening to foreclose.

Maybe Octo-Mom should bring TWO suitcases on stage if she appears!
