RI has had a few trips to it over the years, with one last season to Providence. There's been some to Newport in the long past if memory serves, nice place for its lovely 'summer cottages' (mansions), and Tennis HOF. What better to go with your trips than American Tourister luggage? RI as well. Games don't show up as much as they used to for prizes, but Hasbro has HQ here, so there's that for the non-trip department. But hey, you think RI, we're the Ocean State, so surely something on that front, right? Yep, that'd be the WaterRower company for WaterRowers, which don't show up often, granted, but I know they've been offered in the past few seasons.
By those employed by the show, in a historic sense? We're also the home state of one Claudia Jordan.
