FRIDAY FUN: Get a Whole Different 'Take'

Over the summer, I told you guys about the Travel Channel's fabulous documentary-style weekly series 5 Takes. The show consists of five travel journalists, or "TJs," who document their journeys and experiences with their own cameras, laptops and a camera crew while traveling a designated itinerary. But wait, there's more! Viewers, through the show's message board, help the participants choose what they see and do while they visit different locations. Last season, the 5 Americans visited the Pacific Rim and traveled through Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and other fascinating places. This season, they're traveling to... wait for it... the USA!!! And right now you're asking yourself, how can 5 people's perspectives on the USA be interesting? Well, the five TJs are all from other countries. So, you'll be able to see our country through non-American eyes. The group will hit Austin, TX; Washington, DC; Las Vegas; Miami; Anchorage, Alaska; Memphis, TN; and New York. Your 5 TJs for this edition are:

Bevis, 22, Taiwan

Jaime, 28, Singapore

Lena, 26, West Java

Tim, 24, Australia

Zach, Phillipines
