One South Dakota family is testing their luck Tuesday on a stage in front of millions.
The Crevier family from Elkton, SD, will be performing on the TV competition “America’s Got Talent.”
This is not exactly your average family. Having traveled all over the world, this talented clan is trying their luck for the show’s top prize of $1 million. It’s a family routine that’s out of the ordinary.
The Crevier family is a family of 14. Their talents range from unicycle riding to spinning basketballs.
“We’ve done a lot of programs and people came up to us and said we should be on “America’s Got Talent” and I didn’t think much of it,” said contestant Bruce Crevier.
Bruce and his family sent in a tape to the show. After years of not hearing back, they finally received a call.
After all that time, their routine didn’t suffer. They have unicycles and basketballs for everyone in the family. They even had a hoop in their home. The family members keep each other on their toes, or rather off of them.
“My wife knows that sometimes at midnight she will be hearing bouncing basketballs in the house and she is such a trooper. She has learned to sleep through everything,” said Crevier.
Bruce first started performing shows by himself. He soon recruited the rest of the family. He now has enough players for his own basketball team.
“Over the years, I just learned how to ride a unicycle and I taught my kids over the years. Every one of these guys can ride a unicycle,” said Crevier.
