Steve Harvey's Dream 'Celebrity Family Feud' Matchup Would Be Trumps vs Obamas
Steve Harvey hopes to one day see the Trumps and the Obamas competing on "Celebrity Family Feud. He even predicts who would stand out in the event that that dream match-up materializes.
As the new season of “Celebrity Family Feud” nears, host Steve Harvey has some interesting ideas that would definitely spice up the show. For one thing, it would be a dream for him to have the Obamas competing against the Trumps on the program.
THE FAMILY FEUD TO WATCH
Harvey sat down with People to discuss his show’s upcoming season which will see Chrissy Teigen and John Legend facing off against Team “Vanderpump Rules” and Karamo Brown versus Terry Crews. In the past, he’s had everyone from the Kardashians to Snoop Dogg.
Harvey has more time to conjure the wildest family pairings considering he recently lost two of his shows.
However, in his 9 years of hosting the game show, Harvey admits there are two famous families he hopes to see battling it out for the Money Round.
“Man,” he says, “I want the Trumps against the Obamas at the same time.”
He was hesitant to give an opinion on who he thought would win. Instead, he gave a pretty good idea of who would stand out.
While Harvey was honest enough to admit these two families would make for an interesting feud, he was hesitant to give an opinion on who he thought would win. Instead, he gave a pretty good idea of who would stand out.
“Well, we know who would be crazy on the Trumps’ side.”
MORE TIME ON HIS HANDS
Harvey has more time to conjure the wildest family pairings considering he recently lost two of his shows. His longtime daytime talk show, “Steve” came to an end to give way to a new show for Kelly Clarkson. Meanwhile, Melissa McCarthy has replaced him as host of “Little Big Shots.”
“I’ve been the whole gamut...So I know what a lot of these people are going through and have been through.”
THE SATISFACTION OF HOSTING "FAMILY FEUD"
With “Family Feud” still loyal to him, Harvey says it’s the one that’s provided him so much satisfaction. Having hosted both its regular and celebrity versions, the 62-year-old says its given him the opportunity to see peers he won’t normally get to see as well as connect with the people whose lives he can very well relate to.
“I’ve been the whole gamut,” Harvey explains. It’s no secret he’s gone from being homeless living in his car to becoming an accomplished comedian and entertainment personality. “So I know what a lot of these people are going through and have been through.”
Harvey confesses he likes dealing with the regular people more because they “have a different energy.”
“When they’re playing, they’re nervous, and they all want that $20,000,” he says. He compares them to celebrities who don’t really need the money and aren’t as excited to win.
If one day Harvey manages to pull off his dream feud, we suspect it won't be about the money either. But it will definitely be a ratings buster.
