Wow, It's been so long since I blogged that I forgot how!
Yesterday my family made our debut on Family Feud.
Y'all. It was a VERY long day. I mean VERY.
We got up at 5:30 a.m. and all got ready in outfits that I planned out.
from left to right....my son Gregory, myself, "W", my sister, and my youngest daughter Callen.
Now, this is one of those "bucket list" items that I can now mark off of my list.
At 7:15 they whisked us in to the Atlanta Civic Center into a room with 9 other families.
We were briefed on all the important stuff and then taken in to the empty audience where we rehearsed.
Now. We knew that there was a chance that we wouldn't get on even though we made it this far.
The rehearsal (or final audition) was THE most important part of getting on Family Feud.
We auditioned back in either Feb or March so this has been a very long process.
(in the initial audition you are literally up against about 6,000 other people)
In other words, if you make it this far, your lucky.
But, this last part was SO important and we had to "show up"
Well, we were really loud (not to hard for me) acted crazy, danced, high fives and acted silly!
After the audition they put all 9 families in the audience to watch the show.
Now. If you ever want to go to a game show just know that what you see on TV and what you see when you are in the audience are two different things.
One thirty minute show took about 2 hours. Not to mention that you have to wait in line to get the tickets, then in a holding section for another 1 1/2 hours.
For Family Feud at least.
Steve Harvey rocked my socks off.
Not only is he hilarious, he is SOOOO inspirational, fun, and just totally entertaining.
Anyway, we watched 2 episodes in the audience while watching them take two families who made the cut back to the back
We were nervous, I'm not going to lie.
Then the third family got taken back.
There were 7 families left and only 2 shows to go. They are also at the end of the season, so we knew if we weren't chosen, we probably would have to come back next Tuesday or not make it at all.
We started second guessing our performance and were thinking we did a terrible job because we were just so boring. Nothing really interesting about us!!!
So, after lunch and playing lots of card games, they called out the 4th family.
It was THE BOGGS FAM!!!
OMG, we were SOOOOO excited!
They put us on stage and y'all, it was SO stinkin much fun!
I cannot reveal the outcome but I will tell you that if you ever have a chance to be on a game show...
GO FOR IT!!!
It will be one of the most fun things your family will ever do!!!
Have a terrific day y'all!
