'Family Feud' Contestant Accused of Murdering Wife, Check Out What He Joked About on Show 3 Years Ago

The arrest of a former "Family Feud" contestant has some fans of the show questioning one cold moment during a 2019 broadcast.

Timothy Bliefnick claimed that saying "I do" was his greatest mistake at his wedding, answering a question from host Steve Harvey.

"Honey, I love you, but, 'Said I do,'" Bliefnick said of his biggest marital regret.

"Not my mistake, not my mistake -- I love my wife."

"I'm gonna get in trouble for that, aren't I?"

Bliefnick's alleged actions have left some wondering if the remark was even more than a cold and tasteless joke.

The former college football player was arrested on suspicion of murdering his wife in March, according to Fox News.

Bliefnick is facing two counts of first-degree murder and home invasion as of Monday, according to People.

However, an attorney for the suspect is maintaining his client's innocence.

"It's a game show," Bliefnick lawyer Casey Schnack said of the 2019 clip, Fox reported.

"A silly answer to a silly question on a silly show doesn't make one a murderer."

Bliefnick is accused of entering the Quincy, Illinois, residence of his estranged ex-wife and shooting her to death, according to People.

Schnack said that community pressure led to her client's wrongful arrest.

"There was tremendous pressure from the community for an arrest to be made. And naturally the estranged spouse is going to be the number one suspect regardless of the other circumstances."

Bliefnick was ordered held without bond in a Tuesday hearing, according to the Illinois Herald-Whig.
