Two families from Cherokee County will compete on Family Feud this month.

Several families from Cherokee have competed on the show in recent months. The Moorehead Family, of Woodstock, competed last September and the episode was shown again April 16. The Southard Family, of Woodstock, competed in February.

This Friday, May 3, the Pitts Family will compete against the Grace Family from Chicago. Each family has a chance to win $100,000 and a new car. The show airs at 7 p.m. on WUPA (Channel 69).

The Pitts Family includes Haley, a teacher; husband, John, a software engineer; mother, Susan, a recruiter; brother-in-law, Andy, a teacher; and sister, Jennifer, also a teacher.

 “I wanted to audition for ‘Family Feud’ because I have always wanted to go on a game show,” Haley said.  “If we win, we want to spend some of the money on our annual family vacations.”

Next week, the McNulty Family, of Woodstock, will compete for their chance to win $100,000 and a new car. The show airs May 8, at 7 p.m., on WUPA.

The McNulty Family includes Tommy, a radio DJ; sister, Christine, a pricing support specialist; sister, Kim, a registered nurse; sister, Katie, an elementary school teacher; and sister, Colleen, a registered nurse.

“We auditioned for ‘Family Feud’ because it has been one of our all-time favorite TV shows,” Christine said. “If we win we agreed that a portion of the winnings will go towards a vacation for our parents.”

One of the original Kings of Comedy, host Steve Harvey brings his “tell-it-like-it-is” brand of humor to center stage where he keeps audiences in stitches for the show's 14th season, now airing throughout the country in national syndication.  Families travel from all over the U.S. to compete for big cash prizes on the set of Family Feud, and enjoy a great bonding experience while they’re at it. When the show is over, fans can connect for breaking news on Twitter (@FamilyFeud), find outtakes and behind the scenes footage on YouTube and even face off against friends and family on Facebook.
