Address the elephant in the room, that’s the Steve Harvey way.
The Band Perry were some of Steve’s recent guests on “Celebrity Family Feud.” And, if you were wondering if anyone would bring up his past, you didn’t have to wait long.
As soon as Neil Perry said hello to Steve and asked how he was doing, Steve tore the Band-Aid right off.
“I’m way better than the last time you saw me,” Steve said with a mischievous smile. “The last time I saw The Band Perry, they were performing on the Miss Universe pageant.”
The Perry family tried their best, but they just couldn’t hold a straight face. Kimberly was the first one to let loose with the laughter and as she did, the audience roared along with her.
In case you don’t remember, Steve hosted the Miss Universe pageant where he famously announced the wrong woman (Miss Colombia) as the winner and then had to go back on camera and fix his mistake. Quite possibly the biggest “whoops” in the history of pageants.
Riding the wave of laughter, Kimberly took it a step further. She said, “We did decide that if we don’t know an answer today we’re just gonna say ‘Miss Colombia.’”
Bad move, Kimberly. Because when you try to be funnier than a comedian, it will come back to getcha.
As Steve gave her the smile that said “I’m not laughing” he waited for her to soak in her moment. Then when he was ready he took over. With exaggerated belly laughs and foot stomps, he let everyone know right away, this was his show.
“You know you’re gonna get one of these answers wrong today,” he said to Kimberly.
While it may not have registered with her, Neil got it right away. “Don’t forget Kimberly, he’s sort of running the show.”
Needless to say it was all a joke. In the end, Kimberly had a great laugh as she darn near won the “Fast Money” round all by herself, scoring 196 of the 200 points needed. You can watch that moment here.
