Comedian Steve Harvey just shocked everyone when he brought an episode of “Celebrity Family Feud” to a screeching halt after getting an answer to a question that even he never saw coming.
Last Sundays’ episode involved a competition between NFL Hall of Famers. In the final round of the game show, Harvey was so thrown off by the way Bruce Smith responded to a question about Captain Hook that the timer had to be stopped so the seasoned game show host could collect himself.
During the “fast money” round of the game, Harvey asked Smith, “If Captain Hook was moonlighting as a handyman, he might replace his hook with what tool?”
Smith initially gave the word hammer as his answer, but when he was told that his partner partner Michael Irvin had already guessed that, he had to say something else. That’s when things took a weird turn.
“A penis,” Smith blurted in response.
Harvey initially moved on to the next question quickly, as is the custom on “Family Feud.” A second later, however, it hit him what Smith had said.
“What the f— did he just say?” Harvey asked.
With that, the contestants and audience alike erupted into uproarious laughter. Even Harvey could not contain himself despite the fact that he has years-worth of experience hosting game shows.
“I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I swear I’m sorry, that just came out,” Harvey said after several seconds, apologizing for stopping the game.
Still not able to get it together, Harvey repeated the expletive, which was bleeped by censors.
“I’m sorry. Can we start over? I’m sorry,” he said. “Your a– is going to be on YouTube, though. … You’re going to be the greatest clip that’s ever played!”
Though Smith got no points for this answer, the rest of his guesses helped to win his team $25,000 in donations to the Professional Athlete Foundation. Harvey was right in saying that the clip of this moment would go viral, as it has already been viewed over 208,000 times!
“The delayed reaction is the best moment ive ever seen. So damn hilarious,” one social media user commented, with another adding, “When Steve said wtf?! What a magic moment.”
