Team members play the game of 'Leslie Moji' in the first round where they have to guess the cereal brands through emojis
ABC’s ‘Supermarket Sweep’ 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.
For the latest episode on ‘Supermarket Sweep’, there's Team Meatloaf which has married couple Kelsey and Michael. Meatloaf is very special for Kelsey since she has childhood memories of her father making it for her all the time. Amanda is a body contourist and she chose to pair up with her best friend, Yoshie, and together they became Team Cashew. The third team on the show was Team Makeup consisting of Jackie and Sherry and the duo are drag queens who choose to come in full drag, making it a first to have drag queens in the game show. What other way to celebrate this splendid weekend if not with some rainbow energy? On top of that, Jackie steals the show with her hilarious comebacks as host and comedian Leslie Jones say, “you are funnier than me”.
The first round begins with smaller sweeps. Team members play the game of "Leslie Moji" where they have to guess the cereal brands through emojis. Jackie got most of them, impressing Leslie very much. The second game had the team members guessing the ingredient by making sense of a riddle, one of those ingredients was "Prune Juice", guessed rightly again by Jackie. When asked how did she know that she said, “We drink it all the time, we are old.” By the end of the games, Team Makeup was in the lead which meant they got an extra 3 mins and 20 seconds for the big sweep.
As the teams got ready for the big sweep, Jackie encouraged her partner, Sherry, saying: “You can do this, remember you have ridden the New York subway in full drag.” Jackie's energy on the show was so captivating that at one point host Leslie says, “Jackie is me.” By the end of the big sweep, Team Makeup and Team Meatloaf ended up having the same points, that is 3342. The tie could be broken by counting the cents and Team meatloaf had 61 cents while Team Makeup had 43 cents. Team Meatloaf moved on to the final round and Leslie bid goodbye to the other two teams. “I will never forget you,” Leslie said to Team Makeup.
Team Meatloaf looked determined to win the prize money in the final round. For bagging $25,000 they had the chance to cash out but they continued with the game. After winning $50,000, Leslie gave them one more chance to cash out but they were determined to play on and rightfully so as they went on to win $100,000, becoming the second team to win the prize money of the show.
