If Only You Had a Time Machine to Utilize This Supermarket Sweeps Insider Info

20 November 2015 7:04 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

If only you had known then what you know now, your Supermarket Sweep sweatshirt wouldn't be drenched in rancid ham water. Speaking of meat liquids, Great Big Story got some juicy behind-the-scenes tidbits from host David Ruprecht, including his ingenious strategy for winning: Fill your cart with small, expensive beauty products, not dozens of apparently fermented hams and turkeys. Time to go back and watch Supermarket Sweep again, this time knowing the entire studio must have smelled like three-month-old wieners. »

The host of 'Supermarket Sweep' says avoid meats and cheeses, pick hair products

19 November 2015 5:30 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Supermarket Sweep" is one of the most memorable game shows of the '90s. Who doesn't want to race through the aisles of Whole Foods and shove bricks of cheese into their cart? But in a new featurette starring host (and "Three's Company" alum) David Ruprecht, we learn a secret that could've helped a lot of contestants: Avoid those hams and stick to hair products for maximum cart efficiency. How disappointing is it that the meats and cheeses were fake? Wouldn't you love to come home from a game show with five country hams, five uncooked geese, and five hunks of beef? I guess $5,000 isn't bad either.  »
