Employees and customers of the Highland, IN, Post Office are about to see a familiar face on one of the longest-running game shows on television.
Chandra Kimmons and a team of her relatives will soon appear on an episode of “Family Feud,” where she says she proudly identified herself to host Steve Harvey as a USPS customer services manager.
“I’m too excited about my 15 minutes of fame,” Kimmons said.
The episode is scheduled to air Sept. 26.
She is joined by her daughter Quiana Jones and cousins Saprina Wadley, Jennifer Wadley and Lakeya Rochelle “Sugar” Ritchie. They play as Team Echols — the last name shared by the Postal Service employee’s grandmother and Jennifer’s mother, who were sisters.
The team first applied to be on the show in 2020 and was accepted, but the COVID-19 pandemic delayed their taping in Atlanta until this year.
“I was sure to check with my district manager about appearing on the show,” Kimmons said.
She began her career with USPS in 1997 and worked as a letter carrier for 18 years before moving into supervisory positions.
“Family Feud” debuted in 1976. The show features two families who compete to name the most popular answers to survey questions to win a cash prize of $20,000.
The episode with Team Echols will help kick off the show’s newest season. Viewers can check local listings or use the “Family Feud” website to find stations and broadcast times.
The show asks contestants not to reveal the outcome of the match.
“It was a very delightful, fun and beautiful experience. I loved it. I want to go back,” said Kimmons.
