This week, Jerry Springer actually got on his hands and knees for our Penn alum, one woman marketing machine and reality star Schatar Sapphira ...and you're going to chuck-le at this one.
Schatar appeared on GSN's new dating show called "Baggage" where she was one of three contestants who revealed an intimate secret (her "baggage") about herself to a potential suitor.
After the jump, watch how messy Schatar's baggage actually gets! Oy!

Merv Griffin president Roy Bank (C'94) is bringing the "world's biggest game of tag to television". That's right.. a Pac-Man sort of game show. Roy describes it as a "big, crazy "Wipeout"-type event with a lot of energy." (source)Sounds like it could be fun. Can't wait for the Donkey Kong spin-off!
Speaking of video games, remember these DT gems?:
- They Brought a Popular Video Game to Life On Locust Walk! (MUST-SEE!)
- Penn Alum Song Featured in Rock Band game! (VIDEO)

A few months ago we introduced you to Jess Garvey (C'09), DT's "Starter Reality Star".
We've watched her go on an actual audition for a Special K commercial and drive a cart around the Universal lot.
Today, Jess brings us with her to her manager's office as they plan for pilot season and also brings us to her "day job".
Watch the episode after the jump (and a note from Jess)!

If you saw this weekend's SNL, you would have seen Vanessa Bayer (C'04, Bloomers) playing a very convincing Bar Mitzvah boy whose Hollywood music exec "big shot" uncle brings in performances by Taylor Swift (played by Gwyneth Paltrow), Jay-Z (Jay Pharoah), Alicia Keys (Nasim Pedrad), Katy Perry (Abby Elliott), and Cee Lo Green (himself).
After the jump, watch SNL jew-ify popular songs and check out some of my favorite lines!
There were a bunch of Penn alumni on the red carpet and seated in the audience during last night's Golden Globe ceremonies. Did you see them?
