Jan. 20, 2017 – West Bend, WI – A family from the West Bend area will be appearing next month on The Family Feud as their episode airs Feb. 6 at 6 p.m. on WVTV Channel 18.
Liz Borden said her family was on the Feud over the summer. “We said we are from Hubertus, since that’s where we grew up,” said Borden. “We are spread out now but I’m in the Newburg area and my sister is in Jackson.”
The family in the picture with Steve Harvey starting from the left is brother Chris from Milwaukee, sister Kim from Jackson, myself Liz, mom Janet and dad Gary who split time between Nekoosa and Green Valley, AZ.
The family auditioned in Milwaukee in November 2015. “We found out they only took 25 families from Wisconsin and then when you went to Atlanta and you had to try out again,” she said. “So there was a chance you might have gone to Atlanta but not actually make it on.”
The show paid the families travel expenses and the word at the network was, “They told us they only take the best of the best.”
Borden raved about show host Steve Harvey. “He is amazing and the funniest guy you will ever meet,” she said. “He will crack jokes all day long on and off camera.
“He is a very down-to-earth guy; very heartfelt and faithful but he sure can make you laugh.”
Borden said she can’t say if they won. She said they are excited to see how they will edit the episode “because we were laughing the whole time.”
Borden said she is planning a viewing party. Watch for exclusive updates at http://www.washingtoncountyinsider.com
