Trivia

Very early in the show's run during the "Big Sweep" there would be a guy who would dress up as a product & try to block shoppers from grabbing items. It would normally be 1 of the producers dressed up as "Mr. Yuck" or a can of "Raid". David would say, "Be careful because lurking out there somewhere is Mr. Yuck and he will try to block you from getting to the products." This aspect of the show was dropped early in the show's run because it proved to be too much of a distraction for contestants trying to win the "Big Sweep" & go for the $5000. See more »

Supermarket Sweep Reruns Come Back!!
8 February 2012 | by tames50See all my reviews

Supermarket Sweep was one of my all-time favorite game shows. It was such an exciting game show to watch with all of the fun-filled trivia questions, bonus rounds, and ultimate cash prizes. I remember tuning in weekdays to PAX or Lifetime at 6:00 & 6:30 to challenge myself to David Rupert's questions and hoping one day I would be on there live. Furthermore, every time I watch The Game Show Network (GSN), Im hoping to see the reruns of Supermarket Sweep. Come on GSN make room for Supermarket Sweep and get rid of some of those old.....old......old..... game shows like Match Game and Whammy/Press Your Luck. Instead of airing Dancing with the Stars this season, you all should of bought back Supermarket Sweep.
