"Family Feud" features Fremont family
Submitted By Courtney Smith
Think of it as "Feud 2.0" if you like, because the new season of America's favorite family game show is bursting with big changes, and the Herzog Family of Fremont, is going to be part of the action.
Bigger cash prizes and a brand new car are just two of reasons to tune into this season's "Family Feud." Fremont's own Herzog Family will face off against the Hartpence Family of Santee, on the exciting new season, and they will man their buzzers beginning on Tuesday, June 22. This new season of the classic game airs Monday-Friday at 11:00 a.m. on KTVU (Channel 2).
The Herzog Family - includes Nate, a professor who competes in triathlons; sister Michealle, a teacher who directs children's musicals; sister Naomie, a teacher and new mom; brother Jordan, a student who works part time at the restaurant where all of his siblings have worked; and mom Cherie, a business office director and mom to eleven great kids - will be aiming for top prize money of $150,000, plus a brand new car.
"My son Jordan would spend hours watching "The Feud" and that became our family time as we all started playing along," said Cherie. "So of course when we heard the announcement for auditions in San Francisco we made an appointment right away. We have a huge family, so if we win we want to rent a house in Orlando big enough to fit all 27 of us during my daughter Elizabeth's wedding."
"With a total of eleven siblings, the Herzog Family has brought along quite an impressive cheering squad," said host John O'Hurley. "Hopefully they can win enough to house everyone under one roof for a big family wedding."
Will Fremont's Herzog Family win enough to help offset the costs of a big wedding on The Feud? We're not saying, but viewers can find out by tuning in beginning Tuesday, June 22.
