Former CSU Basketball Player Leslie Jones Hosting Supermarket Sweep Reboot
Leslie Jones was once named the "Funniest Person" on the Colorado State University campus.
After a run as a cast member on "Saturday Night Live," she now cracks jokes inside of a grocery store — She's the host of the rebooted Supermarket Sweep.
The game show debuted in the 1960's and ran for 10 seasons, including more episodes in the 1990s.
The show premiered on October 18. Supermarket Sweep airs new episodes at 7 p.m. every Sunday on ABC.
On the game show, contestants are quizzed and also have a timed race throughout a supermarket. Contestants play for $100,000.
Before the Jones hit national fame, she used to play for the Colorado State University Rams women's basketball team.
According to Colorado State, Jones:
...transferred to CSU to play basketball, but then entered a comedy contest and was named “Funniest Person on Campus.” She left school to pursue comedy full time and joined the cast of Saturday Night Live.
