'Supermarket Sweep': Team Chocolate, team Olive and team Jalapeno battle it out for $100,000
Team Olive came prepared for the game and they seemed like they would go all the way through because they were very good at it
ABC’s ‘Supermarket Sweep’ Season 1 is a reboot of the '60s classic game show that follows three pairs where they battle it out using their grocery shopping skills and knowledge of merchandise to win big cash prizes. On Monday's episode, we had team Olive, team Chocolate and team Jalapeno ready to sweep the prize money of $100,000.
The game show begins with smaller sweeps, which includes riddle games and guessing games, where team players first play individually and then as pairs. The goal is to win as many points as possible that would translate into cash money, in addition to the prize money that they win in the final round. By the end of the smaller sweep rounds, team Olive was leading with $3275 followed by team Jalapeno with $2711 and team chocolate with $1417. Team Olive went on to play the final sweep. Guessing the answers of the first three riddles correctly would win them $25,000. Guessing the answer to one more question correctly in 25 seconds would win them another $25,000, making it $50,000. Answering the last riddle correctly would win them the grand prize of a total of $100,000.
Team Olive quickly guessed the first three riddles and bagged $25,000. At this point, game show host Leslie Jones gave them the option to either check out with the money they won or play on for $50,000. Team Olive chose to play on and guessed the next riddle correctly and won $50,000. If they would have failed to answer the question correctly, they would have lost the $25,000 they had won. After winning the $50,000 Leslie gave them another chance to check out with the money they had won. This time the team members decided to check out. Team Olive came prepared for the game and they seemed like they would go all the way through because they were very good at it. But with just 25 seconds on the clock, it’s very risky to take the chance.
