ENTRIES OPEN FOR FAMILY FEUD SOUTH AFRICA

Award-winning entertainer, businessman and philanthropist STEVE HARVEY will host the iconic game show, in which two families compete to name the most popular responses to gathered survey questions in order to win cash and prizes.

The application entry process opened at 09:00 SAST on 04 October 2019 and will close at 23:59 SAST on 21 October 2019.

This fun-filled family show will be produced by the multi-award winning Rapid Blue who is well-known for bringing a load of smash hits to our screens such as SA’s Got Talent, Dancing With The Stars SA, Come Dine With Me SA, Take Me Out Mzansi, Bachelor SA amongst many others.

Executive Producer Kee-Leen Irvine said “As Rapid Blue we are as always, totally thrilled to be bringing such light-hearted and comedic entertainment to our local audiences and all the more so with someone of Steve Harvey’s stature. We have a huge task ahead of us to find 52 families who are confident, bubbly, funny and entertaining. It is not about general knowledge but rather about the ability to predict the most common responses to survey questions about our uniquely South African thoughts and behaviour. There are fabulous prizes to be won and no-one walks away empty-handed.”

Production will commence in Johannesburg in October and begin airing in Africa April 2020 on e.tv
