A contestant on the Canadian version of the famous family game show "FAMILY FEUD" gave a wrong answer to a Popeye's question. Her hilarious response goes viral.
When "Family Feud" announced it's coming to Canada, it was without a doubt that the show will stage epic moments like the one viewers experienced last week. On the episode that aired on Thursday, the show's host Gerry Dee asked the "Sudden Death" question, he said:
"Name Popeye's favourite food."

In a bid to answer first, a contestant, Eve Dubois hurriedly hit her buzzer, gave out her answer, and proceeded to do a little victory dance. She answered in excitement,
The contestant was immediately welcomed back to reality when the sound of the buzzer registered her answer as incorrect. She suddenly became 'gobsmacked' at the realization of what had happened.
In that epic moment when Dubois realized her mistake, the camera went straight to her groaning family who were in utter disbelief of the blunder she had just committed. "Oh my God!" someone muttered under their breath.

The other family cashed in on the opportunity and gave the correct answer to the question. "Spinach," the other contestant replied. The sound of the buzzer registered the answer as accurate, making the family the winner of $10000.
Meanwhile, the unlucky contestant was still in shock that she blew one of the most straightforward "Sudden Death" questions away. She spoke to no one in particular while trying to explain herself. She said:
"I thought you meant Popeyes chicken!"
The show's host tried to imitate her by breaking into the little victory dance Dubois did when she thought she had aced the question. The woman let go of her shock and danced along. Her family on the other hand stared on in disbelief.

The "Sudden Death" question was about the legendary cartoon character Popeye, and not the increasingly popular Southern-style restaurant chain as Dubois had thought.
The show posted the clip on their official twitter page, and it created a buzz from the moment it went up. The clip garnered over a million views, 14000 likes, and had over 5000 people talking about it within hours after it was uploaded.
The famous Southern-style chicken saw this moment as an opportunity to advertise the brand and cashed in on it. The brand's official twitter handle while tagging the contestant gifted her family $10000 worth of chicken.
It's a win-win situation for the Dubois family as they had already won $10000 in November and were on the show to defend their winnings. The matriarch of the family told Global News Canada that the entire experience was terrific.
