On the latest episode of An Idiot Abroad 2: The Bucket List, Karl was sent off to swim with dolphins in Australia, but we know it's never that easy.
Before getting to Australia, Karl had an extended layover in Bangkok, Thailand, where he unknowingly walked into the traditional New Year Water Festival on his way to the hotel. Surprising, Karl doesn't seem completely miserable to be in Bangkok and played along nicely with local "Ladyboys", even as they outfitted him with a bedazzled gown, make-up and wig at the Mambo Cabaret. Has Karl grown fond of international travel or is it getting more difficult to keep up the ruse?
When Karl arrived in Moscow to board the infamous train, a cranky taxi driver briefed him on the trip, explaining that Karl was about to spend a week, "in a smelly carriage with Russians who will not wash for a week but they will drink." But, at first that was not Karl's experience at all. He checked into a first class private room on the train and was actuallyfor maybe the first time on the serieshappy. But, that happiness was short-lived after he was moved to a third class bunk where he said he "felt like Anne Frank."
We already hinted at it, but now there's a few additional details. Fly through MIA this month and you may just wind up on a new show being filmed at the terminal for the Travel Channel. It doesn't have a title yet, but the show will take viewers behind the scenes of the airport, one of the country's biggest. Producers claim that the show will: "...feature an unprecedented cross section of an exciting airport staff as they deal with the stresses of getting over 100,000 strangers through its airport safely, every day."

MTV's The Real World has called more than 20 cities homeincluding New York, Paris, London, Los Angeles, and Las Vegasover the past 26 seasons and now it looks like they may be adding Pittsburgh to that list.
Though there is no official confirmation from MTV about the show's 27th location, and the Pittsburgh Film Office has remained mum about the possibility, many local websites, Twitter reports, and even Wikipedia, seem to agree that The Real World: Pittsburgh is finally happening in 2012.

If you're passing through concourse A or B at Baltimore/Washington International Airport this week, you may find yourself in front of a camera crew.
TLC is expected to begin filming a new untitled TV show about the inner workings of BWI's largest carrier, Southwest, today. The new series will follow BWI's expansion and the day-to-day drama that happens behind the scenes at Southwest.
"It's a good opportunity to showcase BWI and the region," said Jonathan Dean, airport spokesman. "With BWI as one of Southwest's largest markets, it makes sense to shoot it here," he added.

You won't find it on AirBnb, but you will stumble upon it on the same block it's been on since before the MTV Jersey Shore came in and GTL-ed all over its six bedrooms and roofdeck. Naturally we're talking about the Jersey Shore housethe very one featured in Seasons 1 and 3 of the popular reality show. It's up for rent to regular folks for a whopping $2,500 a day, according to the AP.
Checking out the official listing on Seaside Realty, we can see that the place comes complete with six bedrooms, three bathrooms, three parking spaces and the option of catering or getting a rental DJ. We're going to go ahead and assume that the place is booked up for New Year's already, but now would be the time to begin scooping up summer 2012 dates.
Alas, the cast of the Jersey Shore will not return to film a fifth season at the house, as two spin-off shows are already in the works. The first will follow the further adventures of Snooki and J-Woww as they become roommates, while the second trails DJ Pauly D around the world, making various music and celebrity appearances. Filming on both will commence this late autumn, with the series to hit the air in 2012.

It's been almost five months since we last talked about Donald Trump's new private jet, and thatdear friendsis about 4 months and 29 days too long.
Back in April, The Donald took delivery of his specially outfitted Boeing 757, meanwhile putting his old 727 up for sale. His new toy is a $100 million work of art, but it's not just off the assembly line; this 757 formerly belonged to Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen.
Enough of historylet's talk about right now. Donald's 757 seats/beds 43 passengers and boasts a 16-hour range, but duh we just want to see the master bedroom and all the gold-plated sinks in the thing. That's where the video tour comes in:

Love them or hate them, everyone has an opinion on the Kardashian family and their hit E! reality TV show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. That's precisely what makes it so popularthe sweet hate or jealousy their shallow adventures inspire, or just the over-the-top glamor of it all; there's something for everyone. Truth be told, we only tune in when the whole Kardash-klan is packing up like twenty trunks to head out on vacation.
And now an announcement of immense importance: the big family trip this season was to Bora Bora in French Polynesia and those episodesa 3-part series culminating in Kris' marriage proposal to Kimbegin airing this weekend.
We love globe-trotting and trying out new sweets, so imagine our annoyance when we found out that former Ace of Cakes star Duff Goldman has made it his official job. The cake connoisseur will travel across the country sampling sweets for a new Food Network show Sugar High.
The show, which will debut August 8, will have the pasty chef scouring the nation for secrets and techniques behind the best confections. He'll visit such places as Los Angeles, Dallas, New Orleans, Chicago, Boston and Philly.

So last night was the premiere of ABC's new travel challenge show, Expedition Impossible, and we set out iPhone alarm and watched the entire hour-long show. Was it as close to a mix of Survivor and Amazing Race as we thought it'd be? Pretty much, but while it ODs on obstacles for the teams to overcome, it lacks in heartpounding audience excitement. Let us explain.
Expedition Impossible (which we're abbreviating as 'ExpImp' even though it looks like expimp) begins by throwing 13 teams of 3 into Morocco to complete challenges to win $150,000 and 3 Ford Explorers. The teamseach with their own gimmick from NYC Latinas to NFL playersare both color-coded and nicknamed. Is this Legends of the Hidden Temple or something?

What're you up to tonight, hm? *wink wink*
Maybe just possibly you'll be cozying up to the TV screen to catch the premiere of the latest travel-related show to hit the networks: ABC's Expedition Impossible. At 9pm EST this evening, the new show from Executive Producer Mark Burnett (he of Survivor producing fame) will kick off as 13 teams of 3 race around exotic locales and complete taxing challenges, all for the glory of taking home a grand prize of $50,000 and a Ford Explorer at the end of the series. It's kind of like Survivor meets The Amazing Race, with a much smaller payout.
Tonight's challenge? Well, we can't give away all the details, but do note that it will be surrounded by the beauty of Morocco. If you'd like to be fully prepped for the premiere, ABC has two segments online of interviews introducing each team competing. Check them out here and here.
You know us; we're all for new travel TV shows so rest assured we'll be watching tonight, and stay tuned for a full recap of the action tomorrow!
