Steve Harvey burst into laughter and had the crowd doing the same when one Family Feud contestant gave a comical answer.

Jalen McKissick came up with a survey response that had everyone in stitches, including the Family Feud host himself.

When Jalen’s teammate, Shelenna, won the faceoff against Shayne from the O’Neil family’s team, the McKissicks opted to play the round rather than pass.

Steve made his rounds at the McKissicks’ podium, surveying Damaris and Lamar before approaching Jalen for his turn.

Steve repeated the survey question to Jalen, which read, “Name a reason a woman might say she thinks farmers are sexy.”

Jalen was quick to answer, telling Steve, “Their accents.”

Steve was visibly confused by Jalen’s answer, as he stood with a blank stare on his face while Jalen’s teammates applauded his efforts.

“The what?” Steve then asked Jalen, still unsure what Jalen meant.

Jalen clarified, “Their accents, like their voice.”

Steve didn’t stop there, though. He put Jalen on the spot, asking him to give him an example of what he meant.

“Come here, girl, get over here,” Jalen responded with a vocal twang.

Jalen’s answer instantly drew laughter from everyone, including Steve, his family members, and the studio audience.

And, in true Steve fashion, he couldn’t pass up an opportunity to embellish the amusing moment, infusing even more humor into Jalen’s response.

Steve did his best impression of Jalen using a Southern accent, bellowing, “Come on, girl, get over here. You know what I’m talking about. I got this accent!”

Steve and Jalen’s interaction was shared by Family Feud on YouTube in a clip titled “Jalen’s ridiculous answer destroys Steve Harvey!!”

Steve has become a favorite host among game show viewers, and it’s easy to see why.
