AN AUSTRALIAN QUIZ show has apologised after asking contestants to name ‘a woman’s job’.
Family Feud Australia made the apology after several people complained about the segment online.
The answers given included cook, cleaner, receptionist and hairdresser.
Some of the responses given for a man’s job included builder, plumber and mechanic.
The programme has a similar format to Family Fortunes, where two competing families guess the most popular answers given by 100 people to a question.
Producers took to the show’s Facebook page to apologise for including the question, calling it “ill advised”.
The survey results are determined by 100 people and we understand they are not reflective of all Australians.
The most popular answers given were cooking (28), cleaning (17), nursing (13), hairdressing (7), domestic duties (5), dishes (4), receptionist (4) and washing clothes (3).
Many viewers were not impressed…
However, the show’s presenter Grant Denyer defended the questions.
Questions on the show aren’t always this controversial, however…
We like the bus.
