Neil DeGrasse Tyson And Family Kick Ass On Celebrity Family Feud

ABC has released the Fast Money segment of an upcoming episode of the Steve Harvey-hosted game show Family Feud. This particular episode is a celebrity edition, pitting cosmologist, author, and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and his family up against former NBA star and actor Rick Fox and his family.

You can tell by the fact the Tyson family is playing the Fast Money round that they beat the Fox family…so I guess ABC doesn't mind a bit of spoilers.

Neil deGrasse Tyson

Travis Tyson, Neil's son, was the first to play and did very well. He scored 142 points, leaving his father only needing 58. He only needed three of the five answers to overshoot the 200-point winning score by 25 points. The father and son duo nailed four of the five #1 answers, only missing out on another word for "cry" being "sob" (they went with "tear" and "weep"). The family won $25,000 for their charity, STRIVE International.

When Neil walked out to begin his turn, host Harvey went for topic humor, telling the astrophysicist that he only needed 58 points, and if he didn't get it, "Uranus is in trouble."

The full episode will air July 16th on ABC.
