Facts On "The Feud": Australian "Family Feud" To Premiere Monday, July 14

In less than a work week, Family Feud returns to Australian television on Ten Network with former Million Dollar Minute host Grant Denyer. Hoping to emulate the success of the U.S. version hosted by Steve Harvey, the show will air daily at 6:00pm AST. Denyer has already expressed his excitement of the revived series by stating it is "a fantastic show that the entire family can truly sit down all together and enjoy." With over 7,000 families appearing for the casting call a few weeks ago, I think its safe to say that the public shares Denyer's sentiment in regards to the show making a comeback. Today's article will quickly review what you need to know about the updated series.

New Set
The stage is designed similar to the American version with matching elements including the podia, digital computer screen readouts, white-floored set, the chasing lights bordering the family's name and the survey board, the blue and yellow-colored logo and the survey board arrangement. This is not surprising considering Network Ten Chief Programming Officer Beverley McGarvey said that their research showed that "interest in the show has not waned: since the US version of Family Feud was revamped in 2010, its YouTube channel in the US has had more than three million views from Australia.”

Modified Rules
On 2014 version, the champion will play the Fast Money round for $10,000 in the end game and five wins in a row wins the family a new car. That's about it.

Australian viewers can also play a special online game for a chance to win prizes, watch full episodes and view uncensored, "too-hot-for-TV" clips on TENplay and the show's YouTube page. Speaking of TENplay, there's still time to apply to get tickets to attend a taping and/or audition to become contestants. Head over to for more information and stay tuned for the return of Family Feud on Monday.
