Dee continues to read the prompt: "Name Popeye's favorite food".

On Canada's Family Feud, a contestant botched the final question-costing her family $10,000-because the fast food chain was clearly the first thing to come to mind when she heard the word "Popeye's".

The restaurant made headlines a year ago with the introduction of its very-in-demand chicken sandwich, which caused long lines outside its locations, and even fights - at least one of them fatal.

Family members are left stunned as the audience and host struggle to contain their laughter - everyone else seemed to understand that Dee was referencing the cartoon character and not the Popeyes fried chicken chain.

To be fair, with the amount of media coverage that damn chicken sandwich got, who can fault her? The Dubois family looked back at Eve, dumbfounded.

The host immediately put his head on the podium.

"Show me chicken!" Dee roared at the board - which of course yielded a large X - before asking her more composed opponent for the correct answer.

That certainly wasn't the case for a young contestant of Family Feud Canada.

Twitter users are echoing Dee's tweet and are now calling for Dubois to feature in Popeyes commercials, with twitter user @billzoum saying: "I second this Gerry and I would also recommend @PopeyesCA signing her up for an endorsement contract, she's by far their biggest fan.lol".

Dubois, looking slightly embarrassed said she thought the survey was referring to the popular restaurant, "I thought you meant Popeyes chicken!".

Dubois' mother told Global News Canada that her daughter is taking her vial fame in stride. "Spinach, Jerry", said Logan. But the viral video of her answer got her $10,000 worth of free food.

Whoever got the answer right would go on to play for $10,000.

Then, within a day, Popeyes Louisiana Chicken tweeted at Dubois, telling her that they loved her answer anyway, and would be awarding her with $10,000 worth of Popeyes fast food.
