And it's going to be quite a homecoming for Supermarket Sweep on ABC, having aired the OG version in the mid-1960's.

Which I guarantee you will not come up one time.
Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

Definitely not. Just another case of John flexing his "look what I know!" muscles which impresses absolutely no one because

a) it's tiring and repetitive
and
b) it's things most people here know anyway.

Considering Frenantle had contestants from prior versions on Press Your Luck,  Card Sharks, To Tell the Truth, and Match Game, last summer it is actually possible.

No I do not expect an 80 year old contestant even with a partner,  but if some one returns from Lifetime or PAX versions the ABC version would probably get a mention.  But now I can't get the thought of an 80 year old in an electric cart running the sweep out of my head.

I'm buying this as long as this is not an actual player, but as an impediment like the Frankenstein monster roaming the aisles very early on in the Lifetime run.

On a tangent, UK Top Gear did a Supermarket Sweep segment that I found fairly entertaining

That's a little different. Wouldn't be surprised if there's a former contestant or two, but John's acting like they're going to ever bring up their original ABC run.

That being said, if there's a desire to add an element to the game that reflects grocery stores in 2020, I'd have to think it's online grocery ordering. Maybe you've got to collect all of your team's color coded bags from the pickup station for a cash bonus?
