The outcome of a Berlin-based clan's Family Feud competition won't be publicly revealed until 12:30 p.m. Friday on WJAC.
But one thing is already certain: The episode promises to display plenty of personality.
The five-member McKenzie squad — which is comprised of team captain Julie Fisher, her sisters Suzie St. Clair and Wendy Boyer, and nieces Shannon Kosic and Mindy Luteri — was flown to the Atlanta Civic Center in Atlanta, Ga., in April for live filming. Family Feud is a popular television game show that airs its newest season September through January.
"We had our game faces on," said Kosic, a 36-year-old teacher from Berlin. "It was all about the game.
"Parental guidance suggested," she added with a laugh.
Kosic and her relatives squared off against the Holcomb family from Rowlett, Texas. On the line was a $100,000 prize and a brand new car.
"Oh my, yes," Boyer said when asked if they were nervous. "We were the last ones on that day."
The McKenzie episode will be just the second in the new season of the show. It is hosted by comedian Steve Harvey.
"I think (he) didn't know what to think of us," Luteri said. The 36-year-old Somerset banker added that the show brought on lots of adrenaline — and a few awkward moments.
"I don't ever get embarrassed," she said. "But I was embarrassed."
The McKenzie family's appearance on the show might not have happened if not for Fisher's daughter, who noticed that auditions were being held in Pittsburgh late last year. Their competition was filmed in front of a live studio audience of approximately 100 people in May.
According to the McKenzies, the 90-minute show has been cut down to 19 minutes to fit the half-hour TV show format.
"It was fun," said the 41-year-old St. Clair, who owns a kitchen and bath design center.
The family has signed a contract not to speak about the results of the contest until after it airs.
