No drama here! Jerry Springer, 70, empties his suitcase for Us.

“I film all over the country, so I travel about 280 days a year. I literally live out of my luggage!” admits the host of GSN’s Baggage on the Road (Wednesdays at 10 p.m.). “I carry Paul Stuart golf shirts, Clark bars, and Metamucil, which my wife laughs at.” The Florida resident, married to Micki Velton, 69, unpacks his Tumi carry-on.

His Calling

“I don’t want to leave the 20th century, so I still use a flip phone. But I have an iPhone for email. And I use the flashlight app at restaurants because I can’t see the damn menu!”

Second to None

“My daughter [Katie, 38] gave me a Hamilton watch 10 years ago. It’s more significant than anything I could buy. I always have it with me.”

A Novel Diplomat

“I keep two political books on hand. Right now, they’re heavy hardcovers of The War That Ended Peace and The Bully Pulpit. My wife told me it’s unfair to the people who carry my bag, but I do it all myself!”

Bare Necessities

“I need my dopp kit with the Art of Shaving’s brush, cream and razor blade.”

Home on the Range

“When I was a kid, my dad and I loved the show Gunsmoke. Now I carry the DVDs to watch with my grandson [Richard, 6] in Florida. We sit on the couch in our cowboy hats and boots!”
