The Dampiers held on for three wins on Family Feud Canada

The Dampiers won in all three episodes of the CBC show.

THUNDER BAY — A Thunder Bay family showed their winning ways during a stint on Family Feud Canada.

The Dampiers won in all three of their episodes on the CBC show -- which aired Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday night -- walking away with approximately $2,500. 

There was definitely some strategy involved, said matriarch Lisa Dampier, who was joined for the taping of the show in Toronto by husband Joe Dampier, their children Alex and Kaitie, and Alexa Desjardins, their goddaughter.

Alexa helped them get their final win last night, Lisa said.

"When it came down to that speed round at the end -- the fast money where it was one player against one player and you had to give the top answer -- we were so glad we picked Alexa to do that because she buzzed in right away and had the number one answer. That clinched the last episode for us."

Alex tooted his own horn for his family's performance in the first episode.

"I don't want to say that it was me but when we ended up getting that last guess it got us into the into the fast money. So I feel happy about my performance."

He noted it was a group effort in episode two but gave kudos to Alexa for her fast work in episode three. 

"Alexa getting that last guess (and) getting the number one answer right away definitely helped seal the deal."

The family hosted a viewing party, Lisa said, "so we could all get together and they could laugh at us in person."

While Alex said he's had enough of the bright lights for now, his parents have other ideas. 

"Well, my husband and I have always talked about when we retire -- that him and I would love to go on something like Amazing Race together because we're both really competitive," Lisa said.

"So I'll definitely be looking for other opportunities."
