DESCRIPTION:
(from Travel Channel's press release, August 2015) "50/50" is an action-packed, 50-hour getaway worth $50,000 that starts when two Travel Channel hosts find unsuspecting people on the street and ask a simple question -- can you leave right now? In Travel Channel's new original series, premiering on Sunday, October 4 at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT, travel expert Samantha Brown and her up-for-anything pal Chris Grundy are doing the asking and whisking an impulsive couple on an unforgettable two-day getaway where they are presented with extravagant and excruciatingly awesome choices every step of the way: where to go, what to do, when to eat and should they take time out to sleep. But, the intrepid travelers must drop everything and leave right now! The series is comprised of six one-hour episodes and two half-hour pilots. This morning, Brown and Grundy hit New York City and made a beeline for the TODAY show plaza, where they hunted for unsuspecting TODAY fans willing to compete for the chance to jet away on a 50-hour, $50,000 adventure. TODAY host (and travel junkie) Al Roker joined the travel-ambushing-action with Brown and Grundy and found three pairs of travelers willing to compete to drop everything and join the trio on an amazing trip of a lifetime. In this special episode, after a fierce travel-centric competition between battling teams, one spontaneous pair is racing home to quickly pack and then climb into a limo with Roker, Brown and Grundy, where they'll head immediately to the airport, bound for Abu Dhabi.
