In this all-new episode of Toy Hunter, Jordan embarks on one of his most nostalgic hunts of all time. While minding his own business at Seattle Comic Con — trying to make his sales mark of $15,000 — Jordan receives a surprise visit from ’70s child star, Danny Bonaduce of The Partridge Family.

Jordan and Danny strike up a quick friendship, and Danny asks Jordan to go in search of one Partridge Family item Danny has been unable to track down: the 1971 Partridge Family Board Game by Milton Bradley. Jordan agrees to search for Danny’s request, and in turn, Danny asks Jordan to come on his Seattle radio show once he has found it, to talk about the game and Jordan’s rare toy-finding abilities. Jordan ultimately finds the board game, but also comes across many other rare vintage Partridge Family toys that he hopes will strike Danny’s interest enough to take them off his hands.

To find out more about Jordan’s visit with Danny, and to find out what other amazing items Jordan tracked down, tune in for an all-new episode, tonight at 9|8c.

All aboard! Next stop … the sunny shores of South Beach. By saying “yes” to Trip Flip host Bert Kreischer, Austin, TX, locals Nathan and Shannon have agreed to let him take the lead on an all-expenses-paid trip to Miami, with no idea of what’s in store for them. They certainly will not be disappointed.

How would you like to be given a tour of the city by one of the most successful music producers of all time — and husband of famed singer Gloria Estefan — 19-time Grammy award winner, Emilio Estefan? What about partaking in a drag race and drift at the Countyline Dragway, skimboarding in crystal-clear waters or getting turned into sand mermaids by sculpture artist, Victor Leong?

An amazing trip so far, right?

The third day of Shannon and Nathan’s Miami adventure starts at dawn, when Bert gets ready to reveal his biggest surprise of the season. Bert takes the couple to the Port of Miami by speedboat, where he informs them that they’ll also be going on an amazing, 6-day Carnival cruise to the Bahamas.

Bert and the lucky couple aren’t the only ones who got to enjoy the amenities of the Carnival cruise. Trip Flip’s senior producer John tells Travel Channel, “Our crew — who has traveled quite a bit and seen a few things — were so impressed with our VIP treatment, especially getting on and off the ship.  We felt like royalty.”

“Sometimes Trip Flip can be very spontaneous,” John adds. “The ship’s staff, crew and guests couldn’t have been nicer and more accommodating.”

Nate and Shannon are quick to take full advantage of all the onboard amenities, such as the top-level sky challenge course, and the on-ship water park, Waterworks. After riding the 300-foot corkscrew slide, it’s finally time to relax, so Bert arranges an appointment at the ship’s spa for an intimate couple’s massage.  And that’s just day 1 of their cruise!

Bert enjoys himself quite a bit, as well, with senior producer John telling us, “Whenever Bert shows up poolside, the party seems to arrive with him.”

To find out more about Nate and Shannon’s amazing Miami trip and personalized Carnival cruise, tune in tonight at 8|7c.

“Something is not right. Angry — very angry. They’re all losing it. There’s a war going on. I see this thing, like, whispering in their ear. It’s something evil. They’re kind of being possessed. This is demonic. They’re trying to kill me. They’re not safe anywhere in this house.” – Amy Allan

Scary, right? Enough to give you a heart attack? Maybe. Steve and Amy’s latest client, Amanda, didn’t believe in paranormal activity … until she had a massive heart attack.

Move over Men At Workthere’s a new group singing a tune about the Land Down Under, and they go by the name of Tom and Robin.

After taking to the sky in style (first class on a double-decker, Qantas A380 with 5-star cuisine, endless champagne and top-of-the-line amenities) Bert and our 2 lucky vacationers hit the road, heading west towards the Blue Mountains to go canyoning through waterfalls.

When most couples begin to have children, the adventures go from cliff diving and bungee jumping to cleaning up messes and driving the kids to their soccer games. Austin locals Sara and Jake are 2 athletic parents who have had to give up a jet-setting lifestyle for a quiet home life. Lucky for them, though, Trip Flip host Bert Kreischer arrives to offer them a reprieve in the form of an all-expenses-paid trip to Bob Marley’s homeland, Jamaica.

Speaking of Bob Marley, how would you like to record a song in the legendary reggae artist’s very own Tuff Gong Recording Studio in Kingston? Or if you’re more of the adventurous type, how about plunging into the Irie Blue Hole or discovering a flaming fountain of youth at the Windsor Mineral Spring Spa?

Tonight, on an all-new episode of Toy Hunter, Jordan visits the Windy City to hunt for toys with a diverse group of collectors. Where did Jordan come across this eclectic mix of people? Chicago’s one and only “nerd-seum,” of course.

But before making his trip to the “nerd-seum,” Jordan and his buddy Mark head over to ex-football player Rick’s house to see what kind of Batman memorabilia they can dig up. As it turns out, some of Rick’s collection was found to be impostors, but Jordan did find one thing that tickled his toy fancy — a $450 Batman Space Probe that has never been opened.

Will Jordan be able to pry the Batman probe from Rick’s tough, football-trained hands? What toy gold will Jordan come across at the “nerd-seum”? Find out on an all-new episode, tonight @ 9|8c.

Have you ever been to a restaurant where the patrons wait for a chicken to poop in order to win a prize? Probably not.  Unless you live in Texas!
