Series cast summary:
 Himself - Co-Host (3 episodes, 2004)


"Shop 'Til You Drop," a long-running game show that aired on the Family Channel and Lifetime cable networks (and syndication at one point), was set in an on-stage 10-store California shopping mall. Two married couples competed in this game, which combined elements of "The Price is Right" and "Beat the Clock." Each team participated in two rounds of stunts, many of them timed; the couple chosen to go first could, after hearing a description of the stunt, either perform the stunt or pass it to the opposing team, with the understanding they were required to perform the next stunt. The stunts involved such things as pop culture, shopping at the mall and "Beat the Clock"-style stunts (such as filling three balloons with whipped cream and stuffing them in his/her partner's pants). Two rounds of stunts were played, with the first stunt worth 100 points and the second 200 points; the couple also got to select a prize from one of the on-stage stores for winning their stunt.

Did You Know?


During the 'Pat Finn' era of the show, the set was designed to look like a two-level mall (in fact 14 mock "storefronts") from which contestants would choose a prize. A number of the "stores'" names were actually in-jokes referring to crew members. For example, the Heidi's Housewares shop was a nod to Executive Producer Heidi Cayn. See more »

Pure stupidity.
25 August 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Shop 'Til You Drop" is without a doubt one of the dumbest game shows ever put on TV. The host Pat Finn isn't bad, but it's his co-host Dee Bradley Baker who really annoys the viewer, with his bizarre assortment of characters he plays during some stunts. Speaking of stunts, the ones the contestants have to pull to get points are lame brained, something a second grader would think is funny. It's a wonder to me that this show is still running at the time of this writing, I guess stupid sells.
