The CBC’s “Family Feud Canada” premiered in December, but it has already produced a historic game show fail.
It happened on Thursday’s episode. A woman named Eve, playing for the Dubois family, and her opponent were asked by host Gerry Dee to name Popeye’s favourite food.
Eve did a premature victory dance and said with absolute assurance, “Chicken!”
The correct answer was spinach, the source of power for Popeye, the sailor man.
Dee, who is also known for playing the title character on the now-cancelled CBC show “Mr. D,” touted the blunder, calling it “the greatest answer in the short history of [Family Feud Canada].”
We’re in no position to disagree. Eve can be heard explaining to Dee, “I thought you meant Popeye’s chicken.”
As perhaps a consolation to Eve, she just joined ex-NBA great Charles Barkley on the “Family Feud” All-Star Team ― for embarrassing answers.
