[Blind Gossip] The head of this very famous family would like to see a family member follow in his footsteps. He has more than one child, and some of them are married, so there are lots of people competing to impress him.
He has set up one rather odd competition, though.
He told [his daughter] that right now SHE would be his top choice to succeed him, but she needs to prove herself. Then, a couple hours later, he told [her husband] that HE was his top choice!
He does this a lot with employees. Usually it encourages a friendly competition and people work harder as a result. In this case, though, it’s weird because it’s two people who are married to each. It’s causing tension in their marriage and they are snapping a lot at each other. (Never in public, though. They are both way too disciplined for that.)
We don’t know if the other kids have been told something similar.

[Optional] Who do you think is most likely to follow in Dad’s footsteps?
