Now I don’t know about y’all, but I … (know about us and … it’s the only way we …) sorry, whoops, wrong thing! But if you got that song reference, then you probably also watched Supermarket Sweep as a kid right?
And I’m not gonna hold you, I still watch this joint with my mama if we catch it on TV. Like my mom will flip through the channels and my daughter will catch a glipse of it and scream “mom your show is on” and have a fit if my mom changes the channel until I say it’s okay. Like that’s how real this is! So I’m hype for this Supermarket Sweep reboot! And even more excited that Leslie Jones is the host!
So here’s the deets on the Supermarket Sweep reboot …
The classic TV game show “Supermarket Sweep,” will be hosted and executive produced by Emmy Award-nominated comedienne and actress Leslie Jones.
If you’re unfamiliar with the show, it’s a fast-paced series that includes three teams of two people, friends, family members, who ever, who have to use their grocery shopping skills and knowledge to win big cash prizes.
So basically, you get a shopping cart, and you have to fill it with as much merchandise as possible, as quickly as possible, take it back to your partner, who then runs and does the exact same, before the time runs out.
The team whose shopping spree racks up the biggest bill wins! It sounds super easy, but there are no prices anywhere, and time is limited! So you really have to know the supermarket well, how much everything costs, and where everything is!
Here’s what the old show looked like …
The original format aired on ABC from 1965-1967 and went on to become a global sensation, including runs in the 1990s and early 2000s. It was adapted in 13 international territories and, most recently, relaunched in the U.K. “Supermarket Sweep” is produced by Fremantle. Executive producers include Alycia Rossiter, Leslie Jones, Wes Kauble, Jennifer Mullin and Hunter Seidman.
And here’s what the Supermarket Sweep reboot will look like …
Now I don’t know about you but I’m super excited this is happening! ABC also rebooted Who Wants To Be A Millionaire a few months ago, but I don’t think everyone was excited about that, as they will be about this. But that could just be me? Let me know if I’m right!
