The Twittersphere was abuzz a couple weeks ago, when Patriots fans everywhere thought they were going to catch Rob Gronkowski and his family in action on ABC's popular Sunday night show, "Celebrity Family Feud." Gronk's episode was set to kick off the series on June 21 but was put on hold. The network has now confirmed the air date as July 19, just a few days after the ESPY awards, where the Patriots tight end is up for Best Comeback Athlete.
Rob will be joined by his dad as well as brothers Chris, Dan and Gordie. They will do battle with a team led by actress Holly Robinson Peete, who is best known for her roles in the TV series "Hangin' with Mr. Cooper" and "21 Jump Street."
The teams will compete for $25,000 for a charity of their choice. Gronk, who regularly gives his time to children's causes, is playing for Rodman Ride for Kids, which supports at-risk youth in Massachusetts.
The episode will also feature comedian Bill Engvall and actress Keke Palmer.
