New Bedford’s Barboza Family Competes On The Family Feud
A New Bedford family's dream will come true this month when they appear on the Family Feud.
Shanna York says she dreamed about appearing on the Family Feud since she was in high school. Her dreams will finally come true in a few weeks when her family--the Barboza family--appears on the Family Feud game show hosted by Steve Harvey.
Shanna says she first brought up the idea for her family to compete on the Family Feud at a family reunion a few years ago. Her family didn't take her very seriously. Then, while watching the popular game show one day, she saw an advertisement looking for families to audition. Shanna says the entire process took about a year.
The episode was one of many filmed in Atlanta this past June and will air on January 22nd.
Shanna says that Family Feud host Steve Harvey was a delight. She says Harvey warmed up the crowd with a free stand up comedy act before the show. She said he tirelessly plowed through a handful of episodes without ever taking a break.
Abby, Gazelle and I have challenged the Barboza family to a game of Fun 107 Family Feud. It will be live on the radio on a yet to be determined date after January 22nd.
Fun 107 wishes the Barboza family the best of luck on their TV appearance!
