A Canadian woman has seen Chick fil A levels of kindness from Popeye's after she gave a completely wrong answer on Family Feud.
Eve Dubois was in the Sudden Death Round. When she was asked "What is Popeye's favorite food?", to which she shouted "Chicken!" Obviously they meant the cartoon with the big arms, and not the fast food chain. Eve's family groaned out loud when they realized they lost $10,000.
