What is the Door Country Candle Company?
From Door Country, Wisconsin, Door Country Candle Company went viral in 2022 after they started selling their blue and yellow candles honoring the Ukrainian Flag in wake of the Russia-Ukraine war. All of the profits sold from these candles are donated to Razom for Ukraine, a Ukrainian nonprofit human rights organization. So far, Door Country Candle Company has raised over $1 million for for this mission. They hope to raise even more by appearing on The Wall.
When will Door Country Candle Company be on The Wall?
Owners and wife-husband duo Christiana and Nic Trapani will be Contestants on the Season 5 premiere of The Wall on Tuesday, April 11 at 9/8c on NBC and next day on Peacock. Christiana is a third-generation Ukrainian and still has family in the country. During their episode, the two will answer trivia questions for a grand cash prize.
Christiana and Nic were encouraged by friends and family to appear on the show, according to The Green Pay Press Gazette.
"We decided it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so let's do it," Nic told the outlet. "It was our first chance to step away from what we were doing."
"And Nic loves trivia, so it was a perfect fit," Christiana added.
Prepping for the competition was a balancing Act. "It's a fun game because it's also a game of chance," Nic said. "You can't really prepare or overprepare. You gotta go in with whatever knowledge and deductive skills you have. And you also have got to have confidence in the person you're playing with."
As for their cause, they were happy to use the show as a platform to raise awareness for those in need. "We wanted to focus not on us but on the work done for the people of Ukraine, on our donations to Razom for Ukraine. … We're bringing a lot of aid to people in need. The story to be told on The Wall is exactly that," Nic said.
