A family from Vincent was chosen to compete on Family Feud.

The Datcher family – which includes Margaret, a tax professional; daughter Phyllis, an administrative assistant; daughter Marie, an adult protective services professional; daughter-in-law Korliss, a child support enforcer; and son Kelvin, a community organizer – will be playing for big prize money plus a brand new car, according to a press release.

“My sister-in-law, Korliss, informed us about the ‘Family Feud’ auditions and brought our dream of being on the show to life,” Marie Datcher stated in the press release. “If we win, I want to make some upgrades to my home and take a vacation with a shopping spree or luxury spa day.”

Comedian Steve Harvey will host as the Datcher family faces off against the Addison family from Barrington, Ill. in front of a live studio audience in Atlanta, with the chance to win up to $100,000 and a brand new car, the release stated.

The show airs Tuesday, Oct. 30 at 6 p.m. on My 68 (WABM).

To secure their spot on the show, the Datcher family called the Family Feud hotline to begin the process. The release stated that anyone interested can call 323-762-8467 for an interview.
