Claire Pleym has been watching Family Feud with her grandmother for as long as she can remember.

When the show came back on air she kept her eye out for the opportunity to be on the show.

It took around two years from applying to get to the audition and the producers contacted Claire while she was travelling in Europe asking for the family to appear on the show.

A week after they flew back into the country, they were in Melbourne recording Family Feud.

Claire, husband Daniel, brother-in-law Benjamin, and her brother, Alex, appeared on the show for five consecutive nights.

Claire’s grandmother watched the show from her home in Salamander Bay, watching the first episode, which she had recorded, four times before the family appeared for the second time.

Claire Pleym told News Of The Area that “Grant Denyer was lovely, genuine and funny, he worked hard to get you to relax and talked with contestants on and off camera.”

“I love the show so much and have always loved playing along at home with my grandma.”

“I recommend anyone that gets a chance to be a part of something like Family Feud should go for it,” she said.

Claire’s Family loved being on Family Feud and the absolute highlight was winning the $10,000.
