Every night, get to see Richard Gomez mediate between two "warring" families who aim to bring home the jackpot. Family Feud, the popular game show that originated in the United States during the ‘70s, is now on primetime TV as GMA network opens its fourth quarter season.
Starting October 13, the daily half-hour game show will be
aired on GMA-7 right before the newscast of 24 Oras. It will be hosted
by Richard Gomez, who admitted that he had to go through auditions just like
the ten other aspirants for the hosting gig. Family Feud has already been shown in 5 continents and more than 50 countries worldwide.
Celebrity families will be featured every Monday while non-celebrity families will try to outsmart each other from Tuesday to Friday. Two participating families of four going head-to-head as they try to determine the seven top answers based on what the "survey said" in polls conducted with 100 people.
The game begins with the captains of both teams facing off at the lock-out desk near the game master to see which family will gain control of the particular question. An answer is considered correct if it is one of the concealed answers on the game board. If the captain's answer earns the higher points, his/her family gets the chance to play first every round throughout the entire game. After three strikes, the family gives up control of the board and the competing family gets a chance to steal the bank by naming just one answer that's not yet revealed on the board. Richard then goes to the podium of the entire family as they confer before giving their final answer. The first answer is always the final answer.
The same mechanics apply for the succeeding rounds, with the exception of doubled points for Round 3 and tripled points for Round 4. The family with 300 points or more moves on to the Fast Money round where they may win the jackpot prize of as much as P150,000.
In Fast Money, two representatives of the winning family must separately try to name the most popular answers to five survey questions in 20 and 25 seconds, respectively. If the total combined score of their answers reach at least 200 points, they win the jackpot. If not, they get a consolation of P50,000 and return tomorrow as the defending champions and have another chance at the jackpot which has increased to P250,000.
The defending family has a maximum of four lucky tries at the jackpot, after which they yield the crown to a new champion.
In an earlier interview, Richard Gomez jokingly suggested
that they bring in showbiz families who are in the middle of a word war such as
the Flaminiano family and the Montenegro family. It will be recalled that Rose
Flaminiano has called Nadia Montenegro as the "sulsoltant" of her ward Gabby
Concepcion. (Click HERE to read related article).
