On Season 2 of Celebrity Family Feud, former NSYNC singer Lance Bass and his family play against country singer Kellie Pickler and her family. Lance’s family includes his husband Michael Turchin. While Lance and Michael became the first same-sex couple to get married on cable television (E! broadcast “Lance Loves Michael: The Lance Bass Wedding” on February 5, 2015), network TV (at least ABC) doesn’t have them standing next to each other on Celebrity Family Feud. (Lance’s mother Diane Bass stands between them.)
Michael Turchin is a painter known for his Pop Art portraits. Before becoming an artist, Michael graduated from Georgetown University and then studied acting at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting in Los Angeles. Shortly after making his film debut in the 2013 cross-dressing comedy First Period, Turchin had his first one-man exhibition of work shown at the CASS gallery in Tampa, Florida (He’s originally from Miami.) Fun fact: Lance and Michael also host Dirty Pop at Sea cruises. Celebrity Family Feud airs Sundays at 8pm on ABC.
