A Missouri man has been arrested for killing his wife after hinting that marrying her was a mistake year ago during an appearance on Family Feud.

The post ‘Family Feud’ Contestant Who Is Charged With Murdering His Wife Told Steve Harvey His Marriage Was A Mistake On Show appeared first on Blavity.
The records showed that either Rebecca or a local Missouri domestic violence shelter she was working with filed a restraining order against her estranged husband and his dad at separate times. In retaliation to her doing this, for her safety.
When Tim was on Family Feud, game show host Steve Harvey asked him, “What’s the biggest mistake you made at your wedding?” With a smile on his face, he responded with, “Honey, I love you but said ‘I do.’”
Stunned by his answer, the crowd reacted with “ooos” and Harvey stared at him in shock. He then laughed a little but clarified it wasn’t his mistake by saying, “Not my mistake, not my mistake. I love my wife.” He followed up with a question to the comedian who was still silent, “I’m going to get in trouble, aren’t I?”
Harvey responded, “It’s going to be a lot of hell to pay at your house. Now the only shot that this has of being maybe okay when at the watch party is if this is on the board. And it’s going to need to be like number two or three. ‘Cause if it’s number seven and like only two people said it, it puts you in the butthole category.”
Luckily, at the time, it was number two on the show’s board adding 20 points to his family’s score.
Becky’s family set up a GoFundMe account “with the goal of establishing a scholarship fund” in her name, helping them “support and care for” her boys and her funeral costs.
So far, they’ve raised a little over $75,000 which is close to there $100,000 goal. Her family noted that she will be “remembered for the life she cherished—a life of compassion, generosity, faith, and fierce love for her family.”
Tim is being held in jail without bond while he awaits a court date.
