Woman’s (Horribly) Wrong Family Feud Answer Wins Her $10,000 in Chicken
There have been some horribly wrong (and ridiculously funny) Family Feud answers over the years. (Name a word the follows pork. The contestant said "cupine." As in porcupine.)
But a woman who gave a deliciously wrong answer on the Candian version of Family Feud is going home with a pretty nice consolation prize, courtesy of Popeyes Chicken.
“Real simple. There’s one question. Only one answer. Whoever gets it, you’re playing for $10,000. That’s it. Whoever guesses this wins the game,” host Gerry Dee told the two contestants who met for a tie-breaking faceoff. "Name Popeye's favorite food."
Contestant Eve Dubois was so enthusiastic and confident. "CHIIIIIIICKEEEEENNNNN," she shrieked as she did a happy dance, confident that her answer had killed it. We're pretty sure Dubois was the only one in the studio who thought that was a "good answer," as they say.
Her opponent was then given the chance to wring in with the right answer, which was "spinach." It was then that Dubois realized what she had done wrong, stepping up to the mic and saying, "I thought you meant Popeyes Chicken."
When the video of the show went viral, the fast-food chain stepped up, offering Dubois $10,000 worth of chicken and other goodies from the menu.
