Another Arizona family to be featured on ‘Family Feud’ game show
PHOENIX — Another Phoenix-area family will get its time on the small screen when their appearance on the Steve Harvey-hosted game show “Family Feud” premieres on Wednesday.
“Family Feud,” the long-running game show, pits two families against each other to battle it out by naming the most popular answers to various survey questions in order to win cash and other prizes.
The Carotenuto family — made up of 60-year-old Rica, 60-year-old Pasquale, 29-year-old Giuseppe, 25-year-old Alessandro and 41-year-old Michael — will get the opportunity to win some cash at 7 p.m. on The New Channel 7.
Both Rica and Pasquale are the owners of Ristorante Giuseppe in Scottsdale. Giuseppe is a doctor, Alessandro is a medical student and Michael is a sportscaster.
The family was one of three chosen after “Family Feud” held live auditions at the Phoenix Convention Center back in 2015.
In a press release, the family said the best part of being on “Family Feud” was watching first-hand how a television show is made, as well as getting the opportunity to bond with each other.
The Allen family — Marilyn Tate, Katherine Allen, Brian Allen, Julian Allen and Tre Tate — appeared on the show last week. Last year, the McDonald and Montijo families both competed on the show.
