LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Members of the DePalma family recently found themselves in the middle of a family feud.

Five members of the family — David Ryder, Ed Magee, Kyle Whitteaker, Joe D’Ura and Mike DePalma — teamed up for a chance to win as much as $100,000 on the game show Family Feud. The team members are from Naugatuck and Norwalk.

Family Feud is a game show that pits two families against each other to name the most popular responses to a survey question asked of 100 people.

“Our wives saw that Family Feud was holding auditions at Foxwoods Casino and signed up a team, so we men made up a team to compete with them, too,” said DePAlma, in a news release. “If we win we will take the entire family out for a vacation.”

The DePalma family faced off against the Ireland family from Atlanta, Ga. The show will air Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. on The CW 20.
