A staffer says the show received seven thousand e-mails from wannabe Baltimorean feuders. Not quite that many actually made it to the audition, but hundreds did turn up and tried out.

"We went upstairs," said Richard Minor, Minor family captain. "It was a line of people. I didn't realize it was gonna be this many people. So it was kind of intimidating a little bit."
Wait until you get out there under the lights, Mr. Minor. Just don't choke up on the survey questions.
"We're gonna pack up," said Danielle Bixler. "We're gonna get in hopefully an RV, drive down to Atlanta and get right on TV with Mr. Harvey."
