‘Supermarket Sweep’: Sandra from Team Seasoning Salt is like a grocery ninja, can her team win grand prize?
Sandra was on a roll as she guessed the right groceries from the pictures on screen one after another
ABC’s ‘Supermarket Sweep’ is a reboot of the '60s classic game show that follows three pairs of contestants where they battle it out using their grocery shopping skills and knowledge of merchandise to win big cash prizes. With host Leslie Jones, the show was back with a new episode on Sunday.
For the December 7 episode of ‘Supermarket Sweep’, we saw sisters Sandra and Erica forming Team Seasoning Salt. Team Water consisted of fire-fighters Blake and Nate and fitness couple Dave and Melina formed Team Protein Shake. Melina told Leslie Jones boyfriend Dave swiped right on her on a dating app, while she swiped left. Hilarious Leslie says, “You gonna do your man like that on National TV?”
After the introductory round, it was time for the teams to play the mini sweeps. The first mini sweep was a picture guessing game. Sandra from Team Seasoning Salt was on a roll as she guessed the right groceries from the pictures on the screen one after another and she got each and every one of them. The next mini sweep was a new game where the contestants were asked to guess the item from a sound that was played. After that, the teams played a round of food facts. They were asked food trivia questions and were given three possible answers based on which they had to select the right answer.
Once the mini sweeps were completed, it was time for the teams to play the big sweep. Team Seasoning Salt got a 30 seconds head start because they managed to garner more points in the previous sweeps. After a frantic round of teams sweeping floors and trying to find everything Leslie asked for, Team Water secured $2591, Team Protein Shake secured $3160 and Team Seasoning Salt managed to secure a whopping $4065. With the highest points, Team Seasoning Salt moved on to the final round.
To win the first round of the final sweep that would win the team $25,000 they were required to guess and find the first three grocery items correctly through clues. Unfortunately, they couldn't find the second item in the grocery store before time ran out and lost their chance to win the grand prize. Host Leslie who was rooting for the team cheered the sisters up and said they could still keep the $4065 dollars they previously won and the custom-made ‘Supermarket Sweep’ sweatshirts.
