The Best Steve Harvey Reactions

Steve Harvey’s blunder during the Miss Universe pageant became one of the most awkward live TV moments of the year when he crowned the wrong winner. The mistake and Harvey’s apology made for memorable TV, so below, we’ve rounded up some more of Harvey’s best reactions over the years.

  1. 1

    And the winner of Miss Universe is...not Miss Colombia.

    The Miss Universe pageant seemed to be over when the newly crowned Miss Colombia took over the stage to celebrate her win. But moments later, host Steve Harvey came back to say that he made a mistake; Miss Colombia was actually the first runner-up and Miss Philippines was therefore Miss Universe. While the crowd and the contestants processed the confusion, Harvey apologized for the awkward gaffe.

    An answer of "pork-cupine"

    In 2012, the Brown family provided Harvey with a memorable show thanks to their responses to “Name something that follows the word ‘pork.’” The round started off with a contestant shouting “pork loin” as “pork lawn” and got even better when another family member answered “cupine.” As in “porcupine.” Harvey reacted with his customary bewildered stare, followed by "This is the greatest answer I’ve ever heard!”

  3. 3

    One scary "nekkid grandmaw!"

    “Name something a burglar would not want to see when he breaks into a house.” How about a gun? Or a dog? Those were the answers Harvey was expecting, but instead, a contestant shouted “naked grandma,” causing Harvey to slam his card down and question his nonsensical answer. Even more bewildering to Harvey was the fact that “naked grandma” showed up on the board under the category “gun/occupant.”

    How about... a gerbil?

    After a woman named a gerbil as something a doctor might pull out of someone, she cringed, her opponent burst out laughing, and Harvey gaped in stunned silence.

  5. 5

    Don't insult the host

    If you decide to answer “Steve Harvey” in response to “Name a celebrity who has a big mouth and isn’t afraid to use it,” you better be prepared for Harvey to stare you down and judge you.

  6. 6

    The popularity of dried up asparagus

    A contestant named asparagus as something that dries up when it gets old, and the only thing Harvey couldn’t believe more than the response was the fact that it counted as the No. 1 answer on the survey board.

  7. 7

    A touching moment

    Harvey is known for his deadpan reactions on 'Family Feud,' but he’s also shed some tears on his talk show. The comedian got a little choked up earlier this year when, in honor of his 58th birthday, the mayor of Cleveland proclaimed it Steve Harvey Day and named the block where he grew up “Steve Harvey Way.”
