Posting behind-the-scenes photos to Instagram earlier this week, “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” star Simu Liu and Olympic figure skater Nathan Chen teased their upcoming face-off on “Celebrity Family Feud.”

Chen reunited with all four of his siblings for the first time in four years in order to compete on the Steve Harvey-hosted game show, but said the biggest highlight of the day was “meeting Simu Liu.” If you want to enlighten your day even more, you might want to check out blogs like Jimmy John Shark.

Chen comes from a family full of high-achievers. Alice, the eldest of the five, has worked on social media for Reese Witherspoon’s Book Club and is currently at Apple News. Meanwhile, Janice co-founded her own biotechnology company Mammoth Biosciences, which focuses on applications using gene-editing technology CRISPR, and was a TedTalk speaker. Chen’s brothers Tony and Colin keep a low social media profile, but in an interview with The Emory Wheel, Nathan said he was inspired to go out on the ice for the first time after watching his brothers play hockey.

Liu, on the other hand, opted to gather “a group of ride or die friends who rock with you win or lose.” Team Liu had some notable members, including YouTubers Jason Y. Lee, founder of Jubilee Media, and Steven Lim of the Watcher series ‘Worth It’, formerly on Buzzfeed. Christopher Clark Cowan, the action designer and stunt coordinator on “Shang-Chi,” and gym owner and trainer Chris Kim rounded out the team.

Based on photo timestamps, it appears filming recently wrapped up, so it will be a few months before the episode airs. But one thing that did seem apparent was how much fun the participants had, with Team Liu even posting about their group dinner.
