Baldwin Family Feud
Baldwin Family Feud
Wendy (née Baldwin) Vitter's siblings Cathy (née Baldwin) Anderson, Ricky Baldwin, Kim (née Baldwin) Swig, and Kristin "Cricket" (née Baldwin) Palmer — with Cathy's husband Steve Anderson as team captain — team up as the "Anderson Family" team on five matches of the popular TV game show, Family Feud, hosted by the kissing Richard Dawson (obviously before COVID-19). They won four episodes before finally succumbing in the fifth. Wendy and her sister Pam Baldwin Lopez were in the audience, and each time they won they rushed the stage at the end to congratulate the winning team. At the time, Wendy was a senior in college at Sam Houston State University.
