Spoiler below from tonight's episode:

Two teams tied after the Big Sweep!  The tiebreaker was to go down to the penny.

Did this ever happen on the original version of the show?  I don't seem to remember it ever happening.

I don't think it did, but I seem to recall that the rules would've treated it the same as what happened tonight.

I asked this question way back in 2016.

According to Prizes, a tie never happened, at least on the Lifetime/PAX run. If it did, the total would have been broken down into cents. The 1990 season used dollars and cents for totals, and one team won the Big Sweep by 17 cents.

How come they could not get  David Ruprecht to host it again or may be doing the play by play?

Maybe they didnít want to. There is no need nor obligation to go back to the well.

David Ruprecht is in his early 70s. There is no way he could commit to regularly hosting a game show at that age, especially one where the host's role has been expanded.

Ruprecht did send in an audition tape to be the play by play announcer.
