Arizona family to star on game show Family Feud hosted by Steve Harvey tonight

Another Arizona family will get its 15 minutes of fame when their appearance on the Steve Harvey-hosted game show “Family Feud” premieres tonight.

The Carotenuto family — made up of 60-year-old Rica, 60-year-old Pasquale, 29-year-old Giuseppe, 25-year-old Alessandro and 41-year-old Michael — will have the chance to win some cash at 7 p.m. on AZ TV 7.

Both Rica and Pasquale are the owners of Ristorante Giuseppe in Scottsdale. Giuseppe is a doctor, Alessandro is a medical student and Michael is a sportscaster.

The family was one of three selected following “Family Feud” live auditions at the Phoenix Convention Center two years ago.

In a press release, the family said the best part of being on “Family Feud” was watching first-hand how a television show is made, as well as getting the opportunity to bond with each other.

Three other Arizona families have competed on the popular game show in the past year.
