Reality game shows are among the most popular shows on television. They catch people in their truest moments and bring to the television a format that has drama, action, tension, suspense, fear, and joy. But none of it is scripted and comes straight from the heart. This is what makes the format so appealing to a certain section of the viewers.
One such show is ‘Family Feud’. The show started off on ABC, then moved on to CBS, and finally to syndication. While ‘Family Feud’ deals with regular people who come to play with their family, a spin-off version of the series, ‘Celebrity Family Feud’ plays the same game with celebrity guests. It first aired in 2008 on NBC. However, it was planned as a special and was discontinued after that single season. It was only in 2015 that ABC showed an interest in reviving the series. Since then, it has gained widespread acceptance and has spanned six remarkable seasons. Here’s everything we know about ‘Celebrity Family Feud’ season 7.
Celebrity Family Feud Season 7 Release Date: When Will it Premiere?
‘Celebrity Family Feud’ season 6 premiered on June 9, 2019, on ABC. After spanning 11 episodes, it ended on September 29, 2019.
In November 2019, ABC renewed the show for its seventh edition. ‘Celebrity Family Feud’ season 7 is slated to premiere on May 31, 2020, at 8/7c.
Celebrity Family Feud Season 7 Host
The most important members of the cast in reality game shows are definitely the hosts. ‘Celebrity Family Feud’ is hosted by the legendary Steve Harvey, who is a multi-faceted talent. He is a comedian, actor, radio personality, and a television host. He is the host of ‘The Steve Harvey Morning Show’, ‘Little Big Shots’, and has also been hosting the Miss Universe pageant since 2015. Harvey has been hosting ‘Celebrity Family Feud’ since 2015 and is making a return in season 7 as well.
Besides the host, the celebrities who feature in the series are also some of the major attractions. The episode featuring Team Kardashian vs. Team West created a lot of buzz among fans. Stephen Curry also took part in the show along with family. He and his family faced off against the family of famous basketball player Chris Paul. Legendary hip-hop musician Ice-T and his wife Coco Austin competed against the family of TV actress Vivica A. Fox. Some of the other teams who have taken part in ‘Celebrity Family Feud’ are Amber Riley vs. Tori Spelling & Dean McDermott, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ vs. ‘Station 19’, Inside the NBA vs. MLB All-Stars, and Laurie Hernandez vs. Shawn Johnson. All of the celebrities donate whatever money they win to different charitable works or foundations. Of course, you can expect some new celebrity faces in the next season of the show.
What Can Celebrity Family Feud Season 7 be About?
In ‘Celebrity Family Feud’, two teams play against each other. Their objective is to answer certain survey-based questions and manage to get as close as possible to the most popular answer. The show first aired in 2008 on NBC. In that season, there are three rounds, and it is after two semi-finals that two teams get to meet in the finals. However, the ABC version of the show which premiered in 2015 does not use such a format and there are only two teams competing against each other.
Each episode starts with a face-off question and the contestant who has to answer buzzes in first. If both contestants give the same answer, then the one who pressed the buzzer first wins the round. The correct answer is hidden among a number of concealed answers present on a board. A family can win the round by directly guessing the right answer. If they want to continue playing the round, they can try and answer all of the hidden names that are present on the board.
Also, there are two games played in a single episode. There is a special round called Fast Money which is played after every game. Here, if a family answers correctly and manages to reach 200 points, they can win an additional $25,000 for their charity. If a family has neither won the game nor has participated in Fast Money, they are given a total amount of $5,000. Needless to say, season 7 will stick to the same format with some minor tweaks in the gameplay.
