'Family Feud Canada' contestant gets $10,000 worth of Popeyes after hilarious wrong answer

New York Daily News — David Matthews New York Daily News

Jan. 12-- Jan. 12--A woman who went viral after giving a wrong answer during an episode of "Family Feud Canada" is getting $10,000 worth of free food.

Contestant Eve Dubois stood to win $10,000 on the game show when she was asked to "name Popeye's favorite food" by host Gerry Dee. Thinking "fast food" and not "classic cartoon character," Dubois buzzed in and gave an extremely wrong answer.

Dubois excitedly danced and said "chicken" in an exaggerated, sing-song voice as her family gasped in response and host Dee buried his head at the podium.

She told the CBC she realized her error after seeing her mother give her "the death glare."

"I was like, what did I do? What's wrong, why aren't you clapping for me," Dubois said. "Then I realized I totally messed up."

"I wasn't listening," she said. "I just wanted to hit that buzzer so hard."

"I thought you meant Popeyes chicken!" she said to Dee.

While she missed out on the grand prize, she's still taking something home after the restaurant chain offered her some free grub.

"Our survey says you got that right. DM us to claim your $10,000 worth of Popeyes. #LoveThatChickenFromPopeyes," the food chain tweeted.

When Dubois cashes in her consolation prize, she will have to travel to the U.S. to try the chain's popular chicken sandwich since it is not available in Canada yet.
