Rust 'Family Feud' episode airing Monday after six-month wait

GREENSBURG – It’s finally time for the Rusts to play ‘the Feud.’

The children of Greg and Judy Rust appeared at an Atlanta taping of the popular syndicated game show last spring, but had been asked to remain mum on any details. This Monday, after six months of waiting, viewers will finally have the chance to see how the family fared on the long-running show.

And according to two of the participants, it’s a half hour of television not to be missed.

The Daily News spoke with Audrey Rust-Krizman and her brother Christian Rust, both of Greensburg, this week, and the team members agreed their time on the show was something they’ll never forget.

“It really was the opportunity of a lifetime – not just enjoyable, but memorable,” Audrey reflected.

Audrey said the staff of the show, which included host Steve Harvey, a popular comedian and actor, was “really friendly” and “really caring.”

“They wanted to make the experience as enjoyable as possible,” Audrey said.

Going by what Audrey and Christian told the Daily News this week, the ‘Family Feud’ staff appears to have succeeded.

“It was a fantastic experience,” the ever-calm Christian Rust said Friday.

Christian’s quiet demeanor and vocation as a local farmer led to some gentle ribbing from Harvey and other show staff, but Christian – who joined Audrey and their siblings Joy Rust, Monique Rust-Metzing and Monique’s husband Ryan – took it all in stride.

“I think I’m part of a demographic they don’t get very frequently on the show,” Christian said of his farming career. “It was pretty funny, and Steve Harvey had some fun at the fact that I’m a farmer.”

Christian, who wore a suit and a bowtie for his appearance on the show, was called “the Frank Sinatra of farmers” by Harvey, in addition to being on the receiving end of other well-intentioned quips.
