Entries are officially open for Family Feud South Africa!


Johannesburg, South Africa – Family Feud, the widely popular international television game show, which is coming to South Africa, is open for entries.

Award-winning entertainer, businessman and philanthropist Steve Harvey will host the iconic game show, in which two families compete to name the most popular responses to gathered survey questions to win cash and prizes.

The application entry process opened at 09:00 SAST on 04 October 2019 and will close at 23:59 SAST on 21 October 2019.

This fun-filled family show will be produced by the multi-award-winning Rapid Blue who are well-known for bringing a load of smash hits to our screens such as SA’s Got Talent, Dancing With The Stars SA, Come Dine With Me SA, Take Me Out Mzansi, Bachelor SA amongst many others.

Executive Producer Kee-Leen Irvine said “As Rapid Blue, we are as always, totally thrilled to be bringing such light-hearted and comedic entertainment to our local audiences and all the more so with someone of Steve Harvey’s stature. We have a huge task ahead of us to find 52 families who are confident, bubbly, funny and entertaining. It is not about general knowledge but rather about the ability to predict the most common responses to survey questions about our uniquely South African thoughts and behaviour. There are fabulous prizes to be won, and no-one walks away empty-handed.”
