On Monday, five members of his family will be competing on a Disney-themed episode of “Family Feud,” hosted by Steve Harvey.

In the Disney/Pixar movie “Cars 3,” a character loosely based on Wendell Scott, River Scott, was featured as an anthropomorphic car.

The themed episodes won’t just have Disney surveys, you can also expect some of your favorite Disney characters to stop by and cheer on contestants.

Not only can the families win a new car and $100,000, but the winning family will also celebrate Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary in person with a five-day/four-night stay at the Walt Disney World Resort complete with theme park tickets.

In Roanoke, you can watch the episode Monday at 4 p.m. on WFXR.

Good luck Scott family!! We’re rooting for you!
