Tune in: NOTLers 'Family Feud' episode airs Jan. 25

Niagara-on-the-Lake residents can cheer on the Gaio family Jan. 25.

The family has been waiting patiently for their episode of the gameshow "Family Feud Canada" to air since it was filmed three months ago.

The episode airs at 7:30 p.m. on CBC and CBC Gem. The family will be watching for the first time along with NOTLers who tune in.

”What we see that night is the same thing everybody else can see because we didn’t see any of the rough cuts or nothing,” said dad Walter Gaio. “We’re going to be seeing it for the first time like everybody else.”

He said it’s been hard not sharing the outcome with people before the episode airs, especially with so many people asking when they can watch them compete.

“It is the best feeling to be able to represent the town, to represent our farming community and just the overwhelming support of this town,” Katherine Gaio said.

Katherine said it is so great to share an experience like this with her family and she wishes her daughter Hailey could have been there to compete with them. She is working abroad.

She says participating from your couch at home versus being in studio competing on-set is a whole different game.

“It goes by so fast,” Ryan Gaio said. “It took about an hour but for me it felt like five seconds when you’re in it.”

Ryan said it will be fun to relive the experience when the episode airs.

“The whole experience is a once-in-a-lifetime thing,” Walter said. “People do exciting things in their lifetime, but this is something you will never do again.”

He said he’s putting out a challenge to Niagara residents in hopes of seeing another family get chosen to represent the region next season.

 

This story has been corrected. The time the episode will air is 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 25.
