Local family competes on 'Family Feud'

(Continued)

“In our hotel rooms the night before, we practiced with an app on my phone that was a mock game of ‘Family Feud’ to see how well we answered the questions. We also quizzed each other on questions we made up that we might face.”

The show aired Oct. 23. “Even though we lost, we had a great time. It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that our family will never forget. We had our cheerleaders back home – the rest of the Struewing family and our other families and friends – and we were proud of ourselves for getting that far. Not many people can say, ‘Hey, I was on ‘Family Feud’!’

“Outside of the show, the five of us had so much fun in Atlanta. Our family takes challenges in stride, and the experience was just so much fun, and I’m so thankful I got to do it with my family. Whatever we do, we always make it a fun time.

“We created so many memories from this trip. It was my Aunt Lynn’s first time on an airplane, but she was a champ even when we went through some rough turbulence! Everyone supported us, and there were so many people who tuned in ... to watch it.”

Host Steve Harvey “was very nice and funny. He talked a lot to the audience and contestants. He’s very well-dressed,” Struewing notes.

One of the challenges of the venture was deciding on what outfits to wear “since they required you to bring three extra outfits in case they didn’t like the ones you were in. Luckily, we were safe, and they liked our original picks.

“The producers never wanted you to give no answer. Just say something, even if you know it’s wrong. Also, whenever a family member would say an answer, you had to make sure to say, ‘Good answer!’ The fact that we competed against a family who had won four previous times in a row and were competing for a brand new car was a little challenging to go up against. But we didn’t let that get to us,” she recalls.
