The Leeman family from Goodwood will be competing against the Nkheine family from Johannesburg in an episode of Family Feud Africa, which airs on e.tv on Sunday April 26, at 6pm.
Hosted by American entertainer, Steve Harvey, the game show calls on two families in each episode to compete in naming the most popular responses to gathered survey questions in order to win cash and prizes.
The game consists of five rounds and each correctly guessed answer is worth a number of points. When a team fails to answer a question, they receive a strike and after three strikes the opposing family has the chance to “steal” the points on the board.
At the end of Round 5, the losing family takes their haul home and the other family goes on to play Fast Money in a bid to win the jackpot.
Production of the local version of Family Feud began in Johannesburg late last year.
“I believe Family Feud will become a household name for local African families. And this is just the beginning in Africa. I expect this show to lead to multiple media and business projects in and throughout the continent,” said Harvey.
The Leeman family are team captain Sieraaj, a property investor and UCT Master’s candidate; Naz, a single mother of two sons, aged six and nine, who was placed fourth on SA Idols Season 2; Sharifa, a needs officer who has her own charity organisation and loves cooking, travelling and the outdoors; Niyaaz, who works in the transport industry and enjoys extreme sports and the outdoors; and Wiesaal, who just had her first baby and recently started running her confectionery catering business from home.
