Mumbai: Zee Zest India’s premier lifestyle channel announces the launch of iconic TV game-show Supermarket Sweep, UK that will air on 24th May.
The show comes as a delightful respite for couch-bound shopaholics who miss strolling down the supermarket aisles to discover the freshest seasonal fruit, homegrown artisanal cheese, or the perfect spice mix for their D-I-Y dinner.
Supermarket Sweep is an iconic and immensely popular, three-decade-old show that has recently been rebooted to offer viewers a stress-free and fun watch – no convoluted or deeply intellectual plot lines here, just tapping into each one’s competitive streak and shared love of shopping. Adding to the show’s universal appeal, contestants selected are teams of sociable and vibrant friends, colleagues, or family duos who enter a quiz-based trivia face-off with a minute on their clocks. The excitement is high as they attempt to answer correctly and accumulate additional time for the Big Sweep round. The quiz comprises product/price-related questions and ones that test teams’ general awareness of pop culture.
The latter part of each episode sees participants running around a studio mock-up of a supermarket to collect the most valuable items from an assortment of sections – dairy and baked goods, snacks to home care products. It would be every shopper’s dream come true, to dash through these aisles and add their favorite products to the cart without worrying about the price. Giving the ‘add-to-cart’ experience a new dimension, the winning team is one that rings up the highest billing at the checkout counter.
Touted as one of the most addictive game shows internationally and led by magnetic host Rylan Clark-Neal, Supermarket Sweep, UK is all set to thrill Indian audiences on Zee Zest. The show will keep viewers on edge as they get to witness some downright wacky challenges and the trolley dash retained from the ‘90s version of the show. Other enthusing elements that make a comeback in the reboot are the visibly vibrant, giant fruit and vegetable inflatables that make for bonus prizes, quirky catchphrases such as Hello gorgeous shoppers or Let’s check ‘em out, and memorable jumpers worn by the contestants.
Watch Supermarket Sweep, UK every Mon-Wed from 24th May 2021 at 9.30 pm only on Zee Zest.
