Family Feud host Steve Harvey taunts the nervous contestant as fans plead fervently, “Let him loosen up a bit!”
FAMILY Feud presenter Steve Harvey has lovingly roasted a dad who snapped at his kids during a game.
In a clip posted to the official Family Feud Instagram account, Steve gave the first-time Feud player some good-natured ribs.
It all started with Steve trying to get to know the man a little before diving into a round.
The official Family Feud account captioned the clip: “Being on national TV for the first time is harder than it looks. #SteveHarvey lovingly roasts a sweet scream! #FamilyFeud.”
“All children?” Steve asked the contestant, who enthusiastically replied, “Two!”
“Okay man, this is for the family,” Steve replied. “What’s your name? Say hello man.”
The slightly nervous player called his children: “Jaylen, Naomi, Daddy’s speaks to you.”
The sweet scream made Steve burst out laughing, leaning forward and then turning to address the camera.
“That’s when you get your first national TV show,” laughed Steve before bursting out with an impression of the nervous dad.
“Jaylen, Naomi, Daddy is talking to you,” Steve mocked, his face expressionless.

Fans couldn’t get enough of the clip as many of them thought the man was mentioning a third child.
One wrote: “Somehow I thought he was going to name a third child and had to hit the brakes.”
Another commented: “I thought he was throwing out a third name lol.”
Others asked Steve to “take that man off a bit”, noting that it was his first time on television and that anyone could be nervous.
Meanwhile, Steve got fans buzzing after he mocked a contestant on stage for her brave reaction to Family Feud.
Family Feud shared a hilarious clip on their social media feed.
In the quirky clip, presenter Steve Harvey, 66, asked contestant Annette: “Name something you and your spouse do together that could be too much togetherness.”
Annette appeared to have sex on her mind as she replied, “Make love.”
The comedian leaned over and said, “You’re sick of him, huh?”
“Good answer!” One fan joked in the comments section, while another added: “Awful!” with laughing emojis.
This isn’t the first time the Family Feud host has faced a brave reaction from a player.
In another hilarious moment, a candidate named Delaney made a suggestive suggestion about the 16th US president.
Steve asked her, “Name something Abraham Lincoln probably rode.”
Delaney replied, “Mrs. Lincoln.”
The contestant immediately realized she shouldn’t have said that as she blushed in embarrassment and held back her laughter.
The father-of-seven stared at the audience, then jokingly turned to the board and exclaimed, “Ridin’ on that thing, Mrs. Lincoln!”
“Mary Todd Lincoln” turned out to be one of the answers, which included: horse, carriage and train.
As Delaney and her team celebrated, Steve gaped at the cheeky response.
“NAME A PLACE”
The beloved host is no stranger to receiving NSFW responses on the game show.
The comic recently asked a male contestant, “Name a place where you would be shocked if your parents were making out.”
He said, “Sex on the beach.”
The player explained to himself: “Yeah, in the sand! Late night with the moon just shimmering over the ocean!”
He laughed and added, “Sorry Dad!”
The Kings of Comedy star seemed amused by the response and continued: “Waves are washing up on your mommy and daddy right now!
“Seagulls fly by!”
Steve then imitated a seagull and made a high-pitched screech while the audience laughed.
Finally, he checked the board and found that “beach” was one of the correct answers.
‘ROAD TO GLORY
Although the TV personality is now a household name, Steve revealed his early struggles on Hoda Kotb’s Making Space podcast.
In January, Steve announced that he had won $50 with his 1985 stand-up.
He admitted: “I went to work the next day, quit my job. I’ve told everyone I’m a professional comedian.”
“And you just stuck with it?” asked Hoda.
Steve continued: “Well, I became homeless. I lived in a car for three years.
“I never believed in a plan B. Everyone I know who had a plan B had to use it.”
He concluded, “Because if you have a plan B, you can’t go all out for plan A.”
