With the success of “Auburn Sings” in the spring, the staff at Eagle Eye TV decided to create another show just as entertaining for the fall.
“Auburn Feud,” a game show mirroring the beloved “Family Feud,” invites two different campus organizations each episode to compete against each other. Organizations choose five students to participate and go head-to-head to attempt to match the top survey answers. (Photo, right: Eagle Eye TV )
“We came up with questions about college life, Auburn, and everything in between before we went out and surveyed students through Tigeri over the summer,” said Entertainment Director Tiensae Teshome. “We had an overwhelming number of responses, as we wished. We also posted a link on our Facebook page letting organizations know that if they were interested in being on the Feud, they should follow the link in order to be entered into the lottery. Around August, we did a random drawing to select the organizations that would actually get the chance to be on the Feud.”
The prizes so far for the winners have included HBO swag bags and gift cards to Chill and Niffer’s. The winners of the finale will receive a grand prize, with the finale including the top two highest scoring teams from all the episodes.
Since the show is filmed on the Haley
concourse, students are encouraged to be in the live studio audience. Teshome said one of the goals of the show is to bring Auburn together in an exciting and interactive way. She said the show so far is a success and is trending well. (Photo, left: Eagle Eye TV )
“There's almost no doubt that it will be back next fall,” Teshome said. “We already have organizations that have expressed interest in wanting to go ahead and be on the lottery for the next season. We want people to share and tweet the episodes. The more involvement and viewers, the better. We're just grateful to be able to bring something to the Plains that can unite the student body.”
“Auburn Feud” is filmed every other Wednesday outside of Au Bon Pain. The first episode of the season premiered on October 4 and will end with a season finale at the end of January.The remaining episodes are November 4 at 2 p.m. and November 18 at 4 p.m, with an additional episode planned for November 18 as part of a charity event. Every episode is posted on Eagle Eye TV’s Facebook and Twitter pages, and it also airs on channel 6.1 the following Sunday at 8 p.m.
