People love game shows. It is for this reason that these types of shows stay on the air for a very long time. But, every now and then, it’s time to change the host of the show, which can either make or break the popularity ratings.
Family Feud is one of those game shows that has been going strong for many years. Having initially premiered on July 12, 1976, the show has had a good run, but has seen its fair share of hosts. Steve Harvey has been hosting the show since 2010, and since then the show has seen the popularity ratings skyrocket. It could be due to the fact that Harvey has a way with the contestents and his sense of humor is generally enjoyed by all who tune in.
A recent episode of the show involved Harvey asking the question..
“Name something a doctor might pull out of a person.”
It didn’t take long for a female contestant to slam the buzzer and respond with…”a gerbil.”
And it also didn’t take long for her to realize what she said and shake her head in a manner that suggested she made a mistake and blurted out the first thing that came to her mind.
“I heard about something like that once,” she went on to say between bouts of laughter.
But the best part is seeing Harvey and her opponents faces in response to her answer. Her opponent flat out starts laughing hysterically, telling her, “that was awesome.”
Harvey, of course, had his standard serious face that he always has, which makes everything much more funny. He then shouts “gerbil” at the board behind him and as to be expected the answer is incorrect. Harvey rephrases the question and the opponent answers with a much more obvious answer.
“A baby,” he says. And sure enough the answer is baby, and not gerbil.
This just goes to show you how important it is to think things through before speaking. Surely this woman had heard something about a gerbil being extracted from a human body at one point in her life and it was on the tip of her thoughts.
This was one of many hysterical moments on Family Feud.
There were several jokes posted by commenters…
“A gerbil?! What doctor are you seeing, lady?!”
“At the beginning of the show she said that she used to be Richard Gere’s personal assistant. Coincidence?”
“You know, there is something called gerbling. Or something like that, where a person inserts a live gerbil into their rectum for fun, butt the gerbil somehow gets lodged deep inside, and the person can not get the gerbil out. She probably knew what that was, and said it because it was the only thing that came to mind. Perverted white girl.”
Several commenters pointed out the fact that her opponent’s laughter was the best part of the episode…
It is quite shocking that Harvey didn’t give the opponent a hard time about laughing so hysterically…
“And then the other guy laughs right in her face. I’m surprised Steve didn’t say anything about that haha.”
