Is This The Worst Family In ‘Family Feud’ History?

Earlier this month, the Family Feud YouTube account released this uncut video of a contestant named Sheila, who may go down as the all-time worst contestant in the history of Family Feud, for her uncanny ability to not be able to stop naming answers that were already on the board. It’s got to be a fluke, I said. No one is that bad at Family Feud, I said. Poor Sheila probably just got distracted by the lights reflecting off of Steve Harvey’s shiny bald head.

Sadly, this is not the case. The Patterson family’s episode finally aired this week, and… these people are not good at Family Feud. Not even a little bit. Sheila’s teammate, who I have to assume is her daughter Cecilia, ran into a similar problem when answering the question, “What’s the best way for a shy guy to meet women?”

But hey, at least it only took her two tries before she was able to come up with a reasonable answer that wasn’t already on the board! So, there’s that! But let’s turn things back to Big Sheila again — more specifically, her complete and utter lack of understanding of how chickens work, with the question: “Name something chickens do that you’d feel pretty silly doing.”

As if “quack quack” wasn’t a perplexing enough answer as it was, Sheila’s husband was next in line, who gave the astounding response, “Using the restroom… on themselves.” Like, Family Feud is not that difficult of a game. It takes honest-to-god hard work to be this bad at Family Feud.

Somehow, by sheer, incredible luck, the Pattersons actually made it to the Fast Money round, beating out the other family. This went about as well as you’d think it might go. I want to give them the benefit of the doubt because some of these were actually pretty hard Fast Money questions, but how can you answer the question “On a scale of one to 10, how satisfying is a hot slice of pizza?” with anything other than a 10? You can’t. Patterson fail.

By the way, if anyone is wondering how much of Sheila’s original “mommy” blooper made it onto television, here’s the clip that actually aired:
