Survey Says! Chris Paul, Family Scheduled To Appear On ‘Family Feud’

Let’s play the Feud! According to reports, New Orleans Hornets point guard Chris Paul and his family will be appearing on the long-running, much-loved game show on an episode which will air on Nov. 1. All winnings will go directly to Chris Paul’s charity, the CP3 Foundation. Neato.

From a Times-Picayune report (via Ball Don’t Lie):

According to a news release, the Paul team applied and auditioned for the show, hosted by Steve Harvey, just as any family can. (The show’s contestant hotline: 323.762.8467.)

Family members participating in the game show will be Chris, brother C.J., dad Charles, mom Robin and aunt Rhonda.

The opposing team will be the O’Haras from Revere, Mass. They’ll play for $100,000 and a car.

Just reading about Family Feud evokes fond memories from my youth, when the smooth Richard Dawson emceed the show with gallant coolness and suave charm. Dawson’s run lasted until 1985 when he was replaced by Ray Combs, who as you recall, killed himself, thus prompting Dawson to make a 1-year return in a manner akin to Bud Grant’s return as head coach of the Minnesota Vikings for one season in 1985 after the 3-13 Les Steckel debacle of 1984.

Moving on, Louie Anderson followed. Then it was that guy from Home Improvement and then J. Peterman. Now it’s Steve Harvey, who recently had quite the interesting — and awkward — exchange recently with one contestant regarding the survey, “Things You Put In Your Mouth But Don’t Swallow”. Yeah, I’m pretty sure you can figure out where that one headed.
