LDS Families Win $100,000 Back-to-Back on America's Funniest Home Videos

For the past two weeks, Mormon families have dominated America's Funniest Home Videos

On May 13, 2018, David and Mary Field and their children, Carson, Jillian, and Henry David, won $100,000 on America's Funniest Home Videos for a hilarious wishbone fiasco caught on camera. During the clip, you can even catch a glimpse of the Field's Family Home Evening chart.

Mary Field explained the not-so-picture-perfect-family moment to the Orlando Sentinel: "Our family was decorating for Christmas. Our two oldest children pulled the wishbone from our turkey at Thanksgiving and made a wish. Our daughter, Jillian, thought her wish of a lollipop would instantly appear since she won the wishbone. It didn’t appear, and Mom was called a liar, and Jillian was crying. It was a funny moment in our family."

Having already won $10,000 on March 25 for their home video, the Fields had a chance to win another $100,000 during the May 20th season finale. But that prize went to another LDS family—the Bagleys from Salt Lake City, Utah.

In January the Bagleys won $100,000 after submitting a video of their teenage sons, Beau and Clay, having a lightsaber battler while recovering from sedation after their wisdom teeth surgeries. The heart-wrenching and hilarious moment when Clay bursts into tears after killing his brother won the family another $100,000 and the title of the funniest video as they took the season finale prize.
