Is there a deadline for applications?

Not officially, but apply sooner rather than later! Applications will remain open, but in-person local auditions happen by invite only, starting mid-August to mid-October.

How can I send my audition video?

Fill out the application above, follow the steps, and upload a video directly to your application. 

What should we do in our video?

The main goal here is for your family to stand out! Start off by introducing your family and have each family member introduce themselves. Also tell us where you are from. Tell us something interesting or unique about yourself. Talk about your occupation, your hobbies, or anything that you think is relevant! And remember to speak up! Some families play a mock round of the game. The important thing is to show us how energetic and enthusiastic you are. Do your best to show us why your family would be great on the Feud! Aim for 3-5 minutes in length.

Can we just come by a local audition?

No. Local auditions are by invitation only. Please apply on this page. A producer from the program will contact you if you are selected to audition in-person

What happens next?

If your application appeals to the program, producers will contact you to book an in-person audition in a city near you.  

What happens at local auditions?

Families will get the opportunity to play a shortened, mock game of Family Feud against another family!

What are the producers looking for?

We are looking for families who have personality, energy, enthusiasm and an ability to play the game!

What can my family do to stand out?

Smile, clap, high-five, cheer for each other, say "Good Answer!" and have FUN! Some families wear coordinating outfits or matching t-shirts. Show off any special talents you may have and tell us a story about your family!

How many families are chosen at each tryout?

We do not have a quota or set amount of families that we will choose. We are looking for as many fun families as possible!

If/After I audition in person...then what??

Family Feud Canada begins taping shows in Toronto mid-November. If you are chosen from the local auditions, producers will contact you and work with your family for the next steps in preparing for the program.
