    Family Fued tryout advice

    So, my family submitted a video and are offered a tryout. Anyone have any advice or tips? I know high high energy and an interesting fact. I think we have the interesting fact: my family is very close. Too close. My sister was a surrogate for my brother and gave birth to his daughter. No, not a Jerry Springer moment. Lol

    I'd love to try out. I think it'd be fun with my dad, my brother and his wife, my wife and me.

    I'm pretty sure a successful tryout will have nothing to do with win/lose, rather how entertaining your family can be.

    This is awesome. I would guess a lot of enthusiastic clapping, high fives, and one family member that gives terrible answers.

    Nice fact as well. Don't hear that one often!

    Good luck!

    The one thing I found interesting is they pick the people they want to be on the team. That way they insure there is one "dummy" that can be the brunt of all the jokes. Good luck. I've wanted to send in a tape and try and get my family on there because it looks like a good time. I wanted to do it when my grandma was still alive and have her on the team. It was hard telling what was going to come out of her mouth sometimes. Add in the lights and cameras and it would have made it a lot more interesting to hear what she might say.

    I think for your fact, you should lead with your sister had your brothers baby. Let that sink in for a second and then explain the whole surrogacy.

    We were thinking it would be good if one of us, probably my mom to answer the question given with a stupid answer on purpose. Then all of us yell the good answer good answer knowing how silly what she says. Mom is not the quickest to think of the stupid answer but she would be funniest.
