REVIEW: Pinoy Family Feud brings more fun, “chika” than what the survey says, Part 2
This led to overwhelming victories by the All of Me team, consisting of Arron, Yen, Yam Concepcion, Neri Naig, and Micah Munoz over the Nathaniel family, which had Pokwang, Benjie Paras, Jayson Gainza, Ogie Diaz, and Kathleen Hermosa in its roster, and the ASAP Singers lineup of Erik, Angeline, Yeng Constantino, Klarisse de Guzman, and Jason Dy over the Be My Lady bunch of DanRich, Al Tantay, Yves Flores, and Karen Dematera.

These elements will surely take this familiar game show to the next level. But the biggest test of this riotous and endearing program is to consistently hit the high notes in getting premium audience attention. It had succeeded in the premiere episodes with the affable and skillful Kapamilya game master Luis leading the way and having his players respond quite well.

But the Family Feud format has been known as so stiff and formulaic for audiences around the world to eventually ignore in the long run. It will really take a lot of innovative, responsive, and sidesplitting appeal to achieve this, maybe with more uproarious survey questions that will draw the most insane, laughable and memorable responses from the contestants, just like those video clips from the Steve Harvey-hosted US version that continue to be shared on Facebook.

Notes for Luis
And, while we appreciate his articulateness, charm, and wit, Luis may tend to sound monotonous and preset as merely complying with the prepared script or the established format. He can do some adlibbing, a personal style, and make some comical, natural human reactions to startling answers, such as Yam Concepcion’s “Makipagtalik” to “Mga bagay na di mo pwedeng magawa ng mag-isa o walang kasama.” Maybe a short pause, do a comical reaction like staring naughtily at Yam with a “Sigurado ka” retort, will do the trick.

But overall, the newest Family Feud is definitely a welcome addition to our weekend to-watch list.
