8 Memorably Wacky 'Family Feud' Answers (VIDEO)

by Ryan McKee, posted Feb 14th 2011 3:40PM
'Family Feud''s ability to set up absurd answers with innocuous questions makes it a clip bonanza for YouTube.

About once a month, the long-running game show has a clip go viral because the contestant's answer is unbelievably dumb, silly or inappropriate.

And the show's sixth host, Steve Harvey, milks the craziness for all it's worth, mugging to the cameras and acting offended when things go even the slightest bit off-kilter.

While Harvey's overacting and sense of comedic timing make him perfect for the online generation, 'Family Feud' has a long and stories history of producing countless WTF answers. Check out these eight memorable moments ...


8. Something that gets passed around?
Everyone has seen this clip over the past week, but it's worth watching again. It's not so much what the guy's answer is, but A) that the answer is on the list, and B) what's below it.



7. Something women borrow from each other?
Men wonder why women think they don't understand them; this clip is proof of why. 'Feud''s second host, Ray Combs, began as a stand-up comic, which made him quick with funny retorts. However, this young man's answer needed nothing more to make it hilarious.



6. Something dogs can do better than people?
Answering something along the lines of "sniff butts," "lick things" or "eat garbage" may have been what producers hoped for or expected. Those are funny and essentially true. However, this young man pleasantly surprised host Richard Karn and company with his answer.



5. During what month of pregnancy does a woman begin to look pregnant?
Watching original host Richard Dawson slobber over female contestants as he kisses every one of them is entertaining enough. However, seeing him break his usual smarmy character after a stupid answer is even better ... and less creepy.



4. When people talk about The Big One, what are they talking about?
Guys love this show because it seems to prove women have sex on their minds even when playing a family game show. While many of today's 'Family Feud' questions seem to set up contestants to say something wrong, this one comes as an unexpected gift.



3. A country's name, besides America, that starts with the letter A?
Americans wonder why some foreigners hate us, and this short clip does an excellent job of summing up where a lot of that resentment stems. The craziest part is the show tried to help them by including "besides America," even though "America" isn't the name of a country.



2. A product that is designed to wear out in a certain period of time?
This little old lady gives multiple WTF answers in under one minute. What she says isn't dirty or odd or ignorant; it's simply evident that she has no concept of what's going on in the room. Her family should be ashamed of making their confused granny the team's foreperson.



1. A man's body part that is bigger now than at 16 years old?
Last fall this clip went mega-viral and reminded everyone what a hotbed the 'Feud' is for this kind of entertainment. It's not just what this woman answered, which is hilarious and exactly what the show had hoped someone would say, it's how quickly and confidently the phrase rolled off her tongue that makes it truly worth sending around to all your friends.




Are there other wacky 'Family Feud' moments we've missed?

Great music. Just what you would expect from a top performer. Of course I'm talking about Britney Spears new video.

i hate hate hate steve harvey. he's ugly, his jokes aren't even funny, and his acting sucks. he must have a real good agent to get on one of my favorite game shows. Anyone is better, even the old lech, Dawson. He was truly unproffesional, laughing at that ugly woman who looks like she'd be lucky to be preggers at all. Richard Karn and that guy from seinfeld is way better. Rolfmao at those stupid frat boys who couldn't get a country. Maybe they should do more studying instead of drinking.

This is why 'Jeopardy' and 'Wheel of Fortune' are my favrorite game shows.
The host AND the contestants act with a little more dignity.
Steve Harvey is PATHETIC.
I could think of many other celebs who could do a much better job with this show.
The man has the gall to cal himself a 'relationship expert' when he himself is going through a divorce.
Both he AND Dr. Phil are SO OVER.

Well well here we have another under educated person who has not a shred of humor in their body and wants to spout off about a subject they have no idea about. Lets educate you Steve harvry is NOT going thru a divorice for starters he HAS been divoriced so you just made yourself just as ignorant as the people you bashed and secondly if you dont like humor and cant wrap your head around how funny Steve makes the show DONT WATCH IT. And who the hell mentioned Dr. Phil????? your so over!!!!!!!!!!

Wow because he got divorced previously and isn't right now makes him better? Who cares when it happened his statement about him being a relationship expert when he shouldn't be is right. God some people just like to start fights over anything don't they.

OMG!! I'm in my room, alone, and I still can't stop giggling! That was some funny stuff. I agree with annthllwy. Steve Harvey is sooo funny. I thinks he's a great fit for the show. His mock-anger is a riot.

Amerigo Vespucci was an Italian mapmaker whose maps wer carried by early explorers of the "New World". Europeans came to refer to the newly discovered continents as "The Americas", taking the name from the large signature of Amerigo on his maps.
North America and South America are continents. The United States of America is a country which gained independence from Great Britain in 1783.

AMERICA is not the name of the country! Canada and Mexico are also part of the Americas!
