Many viewers are turned off by some of the fools that have been chosen as Family Feud Canada contestants. Who wants to see members act like jerks? Are they encouraged to act up and be obnoxious? Just tonight (Feb. 10 episode), the Brown family male members were totally obnoxious and behaved like arrogant fools. Who wants to watch a-holes like those brothers and not get to slap them on the back of their heads!
Some are the families are very normal and do not try to over-act like others. We assume producers are encouraging contestants to be exuberant and perform but some contestants are making Canadians look stupid. The Browns had a hint of karma when they never got to claim the $10,000 when Jerk No. 1 had such a high score that should have easily become a score of 200, but Jerk No. 2, being arrogant and cocky, struck out! Hopefully it knocked them down a few pegs and will act more normal, but the arrogant personalities of the males will probably win out and be jerks again.
Sorry to say that it will lose viewers with such arrogant contestants. Quit encouraging the over-acting! —Ken
