Jerry Springer is reinventing himself again, this time as host of a dating game series. "Baggage" will debut next month on the Game Show Network. It gives three contestants the chance to win the eye of a prospective date. The hitch: The contestants have to reveal their faults and foibles.

GSN said Tuesday that the players will carry suitcases onstage to represent the baggage they'll confess to and defend. Among the planned suitors: a shoplifter, a woman who gets advice from psychics and a control freak.

The half-hour show debuts April 19. It will air Monday through Friday.
