A lot of people say “sweeps” to describe a competition or contest, but that’s not always how it works.
Sometimes, the word comes from a more informal sense of a challenge.
The word “Sweepstakes,” as it’s often used in the entertainment industry, came from the word for “sweeper.”
Sweep-stakes competitions were contests in which participants were given a chance to win some sort of prize.
It was also used to describe competitions where someone was given an opportunity to win something, either a car or a prize.
For example, in the 1964 film “The Manchurian Candidate,” a contestant was given a $100,000 prize by the producers for making a movie with the best production value.
That was a sweepstakes competition.
“Sweeps” also comes from the English word for a “bargain,” which is a type of contest that offered prizes to anyone who entered a contest.
It also comes back to the word sweepstakes, which came from a word for something that was open to anyone.
In the late 1970s, a TV commercial for a sweep-stakes contest featured the slogan “The prize is $10,000,” which was a reference to the television show “Seinfeld.”
Sweeps also comes in several forms, including “sweets,” “swept,” “totals,” and “sweeping” as in the original “Selected Works of Thomas Middleditch” sweepstakes.
In the book “The Encyclopedia of Sweepstakes” by John O. Miller, it’s described as “sweatshoot,” which sounds similar to the phrase “sweet sweepstakes.”
