On Wednesday, January 30, 2019 at 6:00 p.m., Franklin Elementary School’s Deeper Learning Coach, Dimitrious Foster, will compete on an episode of Family Feud. The program will air on WVTV Channel 18.

According to Foster, “I was on the team with my cousins. It was my cousin, Mario, that thought it would be fun to tryout together. Our first audition took place back in the spring of 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Milwaukee. We played rounds of Family Feud against other teams and interviewed with producers all day. A month after that, we were contacted by a producer who told us we were chosen to be on the show!”

Foster and his cousins flew to Los Angeles, California for three days in June. They were joined by other family members. They spent one full day filming the show which left two days for sightseeing.

“We had a great time as a family. We were thankful that relatives traveled to Los Angeles and were in the audience supporting us,” explains Foster.

And what was it like to meet Steve Harvey?  “Steve Harvey really has a big, friendly smile. He is professional yet very down to earth. He is like a ‘cool uncle’ you'd want in your family,” said Foster.
