The Battle with the Brothers.

In 2001, my family was on The Family Feud.

We had a blast. Louie Anderson was so much fun.

We lost on the money round. We blame it on my brothers. They choked. Just watch and you will see. It is so entertaining.

Renee and I begged Erick and Adam to let one of us be included on the final round during the whole ten hour drive from Utah to California. They wouldn't let us; neither of them could give up the glory. Renee and I really didn't care. We just wanted the money and we knew statistically (from being avid watchers), the families that had a man and woman answer the final round, had a higher chance of winning.

Men and women think differently. Having two men proved to be our downfall. Both of my brothers happened to think a lot alike. You will have to watch this until the end to see what I am talking about.

So, the moral of the story. Men need us. We need them. Embrace it. Or lose $20,000!

I love it, not becuase you lost, but I only know you through a computer, now I get to see how you really are :) I can't help but say, yea- the men lost it for you, smart girls- comin' up with the condoms and the undies. We one day will be the rulers of Deal or no Deal- I can just feel it, or maybe homemaker, and my kids would star in my dad is better than your dad.
whoop! whoop!

How cool! I have always wanted to go on that show! What a fun family memory!

Rita said...

Oh my goodness -- you have no idea how "timely" this post is -- my kids just discovered Family Feud this week and I used to watch it all the time growing up. I cannot believe you were on the show -- that is entirely too fun!

I haven't watched all of it yet -- but I plan to later tonight! Your family looks like SO much fun! Will they adopt me??? (hee hee) :)

My family totally enjoyed watching your family on the show! I never knew you did this. How great!!! Although you seemed calmer than you are IRL. Was it the pregnancy or cause you were on tv??? :-) Thanks for sharing - it really was great.

Marilyn said...

I actually watched the WHOLE thing! Your family is hilarious. Dang it-you came so close!

Sheila said...

This is a great diversion for me after my hectic day.. I am even more thrilled to meet you Alice. You are a CELEBRITY, a Family Feud STAR. I can't believe that you didn't tell me before. It was terrific seeing you and hearing your voice too! You are so ADORABLE! I don't think that I would be as composed as you were. Plus you are a fast thinker... when I am on the spot I go totally blank. I'll have to watch it again.

So cool. I always thought that my family would have done really well on that show. And yeah, give your brothers a thump on the head for not letting you get up there!

Awesome! I am so jealous you were on a game show! The video stopped when you answered girl's underwear... was there more video!

You look so great! Your whole family did good in the spotlight!

Liam's Mom - Gina said...

Okay, I finally got to watch the whole thing! Gosh, popcorn has probably haunted him ever since! Poor guy!

That family looks like a fun one that you were up against. Loved the dancing at the end.

Mother 25 - 8 said...

Girls' underwear? That was HILARIOUS!

Yvonne said...

I thought you were kidding when your second brother started because his answers were so good--well, until he got to popcorn ; (

That was so fun. So glad you shared it.

I like how your brother introduced you as his "little bit crazy sister"
I can't believe you were on FF... that is so cool!
