That was a little courtesy to Zsolt.  After the webisode airs I'll post everything.

Just thought it was the right thing to do. :)

captjoe6, It's kind of ironic that when I was over at the CBS site last night, it just happened to be right after Jeff asked everyone where he was going.  I correctly answered Gloucester.  Unfortunately, the CBS web monkeys don't allow a user to scroll through all of the responses.  It's as if I never replied.

Anyway, more importantly, I noticed that Jeff's flashing blue button was in "downtown" Gloucester for quite awhile last night.  Was that because he, you, and others were at The Crows Nest?

Also, didn't Jeff bring swim trunks with him on his trip?  I'm sure that the women will enjoy seeing him in his skivvies but for us guys?... :groan: 

Now on the other hand if Jordan was near nekkid, then that's another story  :-[

Thanks again for the article, photos, and video.

Amazing Race's Jeff Schroeder Traveling The World Without Money

In the past year, Jeff Schroeder has seen it all. He not only survived an extended stay in the Big Brother house, but he came within sniffing distance of the final two and was ultimately voted ďAmericaís Favorite Juror.Ē After a guest appearance on The Bold and The Beautiful, he tackled The Amazing Race with his girlfriend, BB winner Jordan Lloyd. Now, Jeff is setting off on his own as the host of Around the World for Free, a Web series for CBS.com that will take him across the globe for 100 days with no money and with viewers determining where he goes, how he gets there and where he stays. Schroeder talks with PEOPLE about what heís packing, what heís willing to eat, why this show is a dream come true and how he and Jordan make their long-distance relationship work. ĖReagan Alexander

You have said that doing a travel show was your ultimate dream and now itís been realized. How does it feel?
Not to be too philosophical, but Iíve learned that anything can happen if you really believe in it and want it enough. Iíve been saying it for a long time and I know that BB and The Amazing Race were springboards for me to get this show. But itís an amazing feeling to realize a dream.

So many things can go wrong in 100 days. Are you nervous?
If you look for problems or if you go out looking for the bad, then youíre going to find it. I have to focus on the positive and keep telling myself that there are good people out there and that everything is going to be good. My attitude is that I know things are going to go well but Iím hopping things go even better!

Youíre traveling with a single backpack and you have to travel around the world. What are you packing?
I have to pack light ó some shorts, some shirts. Iíll just have to pick out a few of my favorites. I wore my Saint Anthony chain on BB and Amazing Race, but I think my parents are getting me a St. Christopher chain. Heís the patron Saint of travelers, so itís just going to be, my backpack, my Saints and my camera guy.

Are you catching up on your world cultures or are you going into this fully blind?
Obviously Iím no world traveler but I kind of want to go in blind. I want to learn as the audience learns. I think Iím an average, everyday guy and I want everyone else to be on my page. I want to go into this with an open heart and open eyes.

Youíll be depending on strangers for food. Is there anything you wonít try?
Iím going to try everything at least once even if itís disgusting. I can only imagine that itís rude to throw up after a meal, but there may be a few instances where that happens. I have to be open to new cultures and new cuisines ó it would be rude not to, so Iím just hoping that my stomach can handle it.

Youíre going to be relying on others for shelter as well. What can you offer as a house guest?
Iím going to help out any way that I can. I really enjoy cooking, but I donít really know the ins and outs of a kitchen. I can whip something together but more than anything, with the cameras there, weíll be showing the way that they live and showing their culture as they see it, not just from an outsiderís point of view.

How are you and Jordan doing?
Weíve had our bumps but no break-ups and everything is going great. We only get to see each other every two weeks or so. We have to travel back and forth but we vacation together and do a lot of fun things together. Lately Iíve been busy with the show and sheís been busy with school, but having to work with a long-distance relationship really worked out for us because when we finally get a break from what weíre doing weíre so excited to see each other. So far, so good.

Thanks cptjoe6. After seeing your latest pics, Jeff's flashing blue dot must have been at Passports.

And after seeing the lastest CBS video, I wouldn't mind seeing Jordan's mom on the pole.  Yum! 

And, finally, my detective skills are off.  Jeff did fly first class.  He must have flown on a new AA regional jet.  The ones I fly don't have first class.

One day in and it's already been great, love his stops in the US (as I did Alex's) but can't wait for him to leave the Country.  The new website is awesome. 

Thanks CaptJoe06 for the pics/story, looking forward to your future posts, and can't wait to see Zsolt's finished product of Day 1.

And the Charlotte video, so sweet to see, anyone who ever thought they kept they're relationship going just for TAR can put that to rest.  They definitely have some very strong feelings for each other.

Thank you so much , captjoe06.   You are the MAN!!!!!!!    

I thoroughly enjoy all your posts, photos, and video.  I agree that you have set the bar high.

Sometime when you have a chance, can you explain the process of how you got Jeff, Zsolt, and John to visit you?

One in 100 million
By Steven Fletcher
 Staff Writer


Captain Joe & Sons wholesale lobster dealership processes more pounds of the crustacean than co-owner Joey Ciaramitaro can remember.

But the lobster boats have now offered up something virtually unique: an albino lobster.

Local lobsterman Mike Tupper brought the white shellfish in on the Freemantle Doctor last Friday. The 21/2-pound lobster's carapace was colored a blue-tinted white ó starkly contrasting with the rest of the ruddy brown catch.

Ciaramitaro, also well known as blogger extraordinaire with his GoodMorningGloucester, said Tuesday that this lobster stood as one of the only two albinos he has handled in his lifetime on the docks, beginning at the age of 9.

Bill Murphy, senior biologist at the New England Aquarium in Boston, said Tuesday that only one in every 100 million lobsters would carry the albino shell, claws and tail.

Lobsters ó usually a reddish brown ó can come in varied colors. Murphy said the shellfish can appear orange, yellow ó and, in rare cases, blue and white. Lobsters, according to both Ciaramitaro and Murphy, even appear with two colors, split perfectly down the center.

However, every color but white will turn the traditional red when boiled, according to William Alder, executive director of the Massachusetts Lobstermen's Association.

The albino isn't the only "mutant lobster," as Ciaramitaro refers to them, landed at his business even this month.

Last week, he said, a lobster boat brought in a lobster with a triple pincer claw. That shellfish weighed in at nearly 3 pounds.

Over the years, Ciaramitaro said lobsters and crabs of all colors and numbers of claws have crossed onto his landing.

Ciaramitaro said he's even stopped calling aquariums about unusual shellfish after officials became unwilling to pick up the crustaceans for study. So, despite their unique looks, the "mutant lobsters" go out to vendors just like their run-of-the-mill cousins.

One exception, however, was the albino lobster landed last week.

The same week the Freemantle Doctor landed the shot-in-the-dark shellfish, Jeff Schroeder, who has been a contestant on both CBS's "Amazing Race" and "Big Brother," visited the Gloucester wharves and was hosted by Ciaramitaro family's for the show "Around the World For Free." This year's "Amazing Race" also reportedly kicked off in Gloucester last month.

On Monday, Ciaramitaro left the lobster's fate in Schroeder's hands.

He presented two envelopes, one that read "eat the lobster," the other "free the lobster."

One would have had the albino lobster cooked, providing Schroeder with all the lobster he could eat; the other required him to walk Gloucester's famed Greasy Pole off Pavilion Beach to, as Ciaramitaro put it, "earn the right to release the lobster."

Schroeder chose to walk the pole, and Mark Ring of the lobster boat The Stanley Thomas ferried Ciaramitaro, Schroeder, and the film crew to the pole.

Ciaramitaro confessed in an interview Tuesday that the "eat the lobster" envelope really said to release the lobster as well. And, in the end, he said the event turned out well for all, with both the lobstermen and Schroeder looking like heroes.

"It was good for CBS, Jeff Schroeder, the lobsterman," he said, "and it was good for the lobster."

Thanks captjoe06!

I can't believe all the publicity Gloucester is getting, what with TAR 17, ATWFF and movies being filmed there. I wonder if Jeff knew that TAR 17 started there?

Anyone want to wager how many times Gloucester gets mispronounced this September?

Great news for AWTFF & for Jeff's travel prospects.  The website got 29,000 unique hits on the first day, hopefully they can sustain and even grow the momentum.  From what I've seen so far, they are well on their way.

I am a bit confused by all the different places Jeff went to. Didn't ATWFF2 start in New York City, not Chicago? It appears to me that he must have gone to Gloucester and to Washington DC as part of the publicity campaign for AWTFF2. The trip to see  Jordan from Chicago (where he lives) to Charlotte and then out of Raleigh Durham to parts unidentified apparently was day 2-3 of ATWFF2. Is this correct?

ATWFF didn't start until Jeff left the set of The Early Show on air -- the exact same way Alex started the first season.

(Alex spent a week or so traveling from NYC down to Florida in season one before he got out of the U.S.; it looks like Jeff is taking the same amount of time before he heads outside the U.S.)

Chicago and Charlotte were pre departure, I think the videos are confusing.

He left from CBS Plaza on Monday July 26...first stop Gloucester Ma, and now DC...
