Warner Robins man competes on ‘Family Feud’

WARNER ROBINS -- A Warner Robins man will be on Tuesday’s episode of the long-running syndicated game show “Family Feud.”

Hardwick Davis Jr., a maintenance worker at Lake Vista Apartments, will appear on the show set to air on Fox Network station WGXA at 9 a.m., and the CW network station WUPA at 7:30 p.m. He competed with his sisters Maxine Wilson, Debra Reeves and Chinita Davis, and his nephew Qualon Bobbitt. All live in the Atlanta area.

The show was filmed in Atlanta this summer in front of a live studio audience, Davis said. They competed against a family from Woodstock.

“It was a great experience,” he said. “It was something new to me, and I enjoyed it. I wouldn’t mind doing it again.”

“Family Feud” first aired in 1976 with Richard Dawson as host. It has been canceled and revived several times and now is in its 14th season since its last revival.

Comedian Steve Harvey is host. Since he took the job, ratings have increased 50 percent, according to a release.

Davis said it was Chinita Davis’ idea to audition for the show. They had the opportunity to win up to $100,000 and a new car, and she wanted to use the money to start a foundation in honor of their late father, Hardwick Davis Sr.

The family is originally from Dublin, and Davis said his father was closely involved with the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and civil rights issues.
