Her swift answer drew pause to the entire audience, including her family who watched in silence as she rejoiced in what she thought was the right answer. "Oh, my Gooooood", one family member gasped.
Dee continues to read the prompt: "Name Popeye's favorite food".
Contestant Eve Dubois could barely wait for him to finish before hitting the buzzer and singing "Chhhiiicckkkeennnn".
The restaurant made headlines previous year with the introduction of its very-in-demand chicken sandwich, which caused long lines outside its locations, and even fights - at least one of them fatal. But instead of giving the answer for the famous cartoon sailor - spinach - her mind went to the fast food chain known for a much different meal.
'This happened in Canada, where we still don't have our new chicken sandwich but a good and growing presence, ' he said.
The host immediately put his head on the podium. Dee turned to the board to see if, by some chance, "Chicken" was the top answer.
"Show me chicken!" shouted Dee as Eve realized her mistake - and a big X popped up on the screen.
Her opponent, Logan Tomlin, then took the prize money by correctly answering "spinach". "Spinach, Gerry", he said.
I would like to start off by saying that I had no idea that there was a Canada Family Feud.
After the hilarious game-show fail went viral, Popeye's issued a tweet, telling the family to send a DM to claim $10,000 worth of Popeye's food. Her Popeye's/Popeyes confusion cost Dubois' team $10,000, CNN reports.
When Dubois realized her answer was wrong, she had the ideal excuse: "I thought you meant Popeyes chicken!".
"Our survey says you got that right".
Dubois, meanwhile, has been taking her now-viral moment in stride, retweeting numerous memes created following her episode aired.
The contestant also thanked the company on Twitter for its offer.
