Tomorrow is our big FAMILY FEUD audition (!!!) - wish us luck!
So, we've got our big Family Feud audition tomorrow (!!) - me and J are driving back to Boston tonight! We've been talking about this as a family for *years* (since J was like 8?). Rumor has it there's 45 families trying out... they could take all 45 or they could take NONE OF US. Oooooohhhhh, the drama!
Family Feud teams are 5 people strong, but they give you the choice of bringing 6 people to the audition. If you bring a 6th, they'll choose the five they want on the show (our tentative 6th = Cousin Michelle) . I suppose bringing a 6th increases our odds of getting chosen (J's all for bringing a 6th), but I'd be bummed if one of the original five (me + J + Katie + Mom + Dad) got bumped.
And yes, we have been practicing. I bought a few copies of the board game (comes with a book of questions!), Tivo'd a bunch of old episodes ("make sure to high-five and say 'Good Answer!' a lot) and we've all been calling and IMing each other with fake Fast Money questions over the last few weeks.
That said, I think we may be a little over-prepared for this thing (which will prob hurt our chances), but we'll see. To be honest, I'm most worried about the dress code - "business casual" - do I even own a pair of real pants???
Anyway, wish us luck!
