Get Packing

The TV's on in the background, and, from late last night, it's on the Travel Channel, which I never watch.

For the past hour there's been a show called "Get Packing", where two contestants -- women in the two eps I just saw -- first each got a chance to snoop through a guy's apartment, then were each given $1,000 to go shopping for the guy for items he'd enjoy on a "dream date" trip to some exotic destination.

Then the guy looks at the items they got, and without ever meeting the women, he selects the one he want to take with him.

Sounds kinda lame.

But it really got me. I found myself carefully watching what was selected, and rooting for the contestant who I felt understood him better.
