The question: Name Popeye's favorite food? Eve Dubois' answer: chicken. Oops, no not that Popeyes. The correct answer was spinach, as in Popeye the Sailor Man.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm David Greene. So it was sudden death on "Family Feud Canada." At stake - the chance to play for $10,000. Eve Dubois buzzed in and did this little dance because she had it.

(SOUNDBITE OF TV SHOW, "FAMILY FEUD CANADA")

GERRY DEE: Name Popeye's favorite food.

(SOUNDBITE OF BUZZER)

EVE DUBOIS: Chicken.

(LAUGHTER, APPLAUSE)

GREENE: Nope, not that Popeyes. It was actually spinach, as in Popeye the sailor man, though Eve gets the last laugh. Popeyes, the chicken company, offered her 10,000 bucks to thank her for that shout out.
