A Manitoba woman had chicken on her brain when she hastily answered a question Thursday on “Family Feud Canada.”

The only problem? It cost her family $10,000, which could have definitely bought a lot of chicken.

Eve Dubois of Lorette, Manitoba was a contestant on the reality TV show, which aired Thursday on CBC.

Comedian and host Gerry Dee began the sudden death round by stating there could only be one answer: Name Popeye’s favourite food.

“Chickennnn,” Dubois blurted out before performing a little celebratory dance, much to the dismay of her family members looking on.

“Show me… chicken,” Dee said, as he turned to the scoreboard to find a big red X.

Popeye, the fictional cartoon character sailor, was the last thing on Dubois’ mind. She thought it was the Popeyes fried chicken fast food chain.

Logan White of Waterloo, Ontario, who appeared on the show with his wife and fellow contestant, Alyssa Tomlin-White, gave the correct answer of ‘spinach.’

The moment went viral online Friday, with some clips reaching nearly 1 million views. Comedian Drew Carey even retweeted the clip, saying he “honestly can’t get enough of this one.”

In an interview with CBC News, Dubois said she had to take Friday off from work to deal with all of the attention, including numerous phone calls from across Canada and the United States.

Dubois also said she’s never even tried Popeyes chicken, but that won’t be a problem now. In a tweet, Popeyes said it would be giving her $10,000 worth of chicken.
