A Family Feud contestant’s answer was so off the wall that it stopped Steve Harvey in his tracks and left him speechless.

Steve Harvey is known for his quick wit, so it’s not often that he is lost for words.

But a contestant named Peggy pulled off an unlikely task, leaving Steve stuck dumb.

During the Voron family’s Fast Money round, Peggy was the first of her team’s family members to answer Steve’s rapid-fire questions.

Peggy took her spot on stage next to Steve as her 20-second countdown began, and Steve read her five questions off his cue card.

Peggy breezed through her first three questions, but when Steve got to the fourth one, her answer threw him for a loop.

Peggy’s answer ‘shuts up’ Steve Harvey during her Fast Money round

Steve’s fourth question asked Peggy, “Tell me how much reward you’d offer for your lost dog.”

Without hesitation, Peggy answered, “A million dollars.”

Before Steve got to Peggy’s fifth question — with only five seconds left on the timer — the 67-year-old abruptly stopped the round, and the buzzer sounded, ending the round.

The crowd erupted into laughter as Steve looked at his producers and told them with a serious expression, “I’m sorry.”

Steve continued to mouth “I’m sorry” several more times before he composed himself enough to speak again.

Since Steve cut Peggy’s round short, he allowed her to answer the fifth question without timing her.

When it came time to review her answers on the board, Peggy did well until they got to the fourth question.

Her answer, “A million dollars,” produced zero points and Steve joked, “You one of those sweet people with their animals.”

Family Feud viewers react to Steve and Peggy’s exchange

Not only did the Family Feud studio audience get a kick out of Peggy’s answer, but so did viewers at home.

Taking to the comments section of the clip — shared on YouTube and captioned “Peggy’s answer SHUTS UP Steve Harvey in Fast Money!!” — Family Feud viewers weighed in on Peggy’s answer.

One YouTube user found the humor in Peggy’s answer, commenting, “Wtf really one million dollars for a lost dog,” along with a slew of laughing-face emojis.

“$1,000,000 is WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIILD and CRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAZY AF,” added @KJTHE2K21GOD.

“If she has a million dollars to give for finding her dog what is she doing playing family feud, lol, petty change for a millionaire,” joked another commenter.

Some viewers failed to find the humor in the exchange.

@jonathandillon2100 wrote, “Steve needs to learn to stop thinking about people’s answers and just worry about reading the next question from now on. Right?”

But, in Steve’s defense, another Family Feud fan pointed out that it’s part of Steve’s job to entertain the viewers.

“He’s supposed to make jokes and keep things funny during the show; I’m sure it’s hard to turn that off at the end to do fast money,” replied @xzonia1. “His mind is too quick.”

My DD was dog napped and I hunted for 3 weeks until I found her. She is my support dog you see. I had pictures to identify her. The sheriff didn’t want to mess with it so I came back telling him to help me or bring some body bags that I’m going in. A half hour later I had DD back home.

MARJORIE WEATHERSPOON: BECAUSE YOU DON’T THINK STEVE HARVEY IS FUNNY WHEREAS OTHERS DO INCLUDING MYSELF MY HUSBAND AND FRIENDS AND IT IS PROBABLY EVIDENT THAT THERE ARE THOSE WHO DON’T THINK THAT YOU ARE FUNNY BUT THEY TOLERATE YOU. SO YOU SEE 👀 SOMETIMES IT PAYS TO KEEP YOUR OPINION TO YOURSELF ESPECIALLY WHEN IT COMES TO STEVE HARVEY BECAUSE THERE ARE THOSE WHO WILL ALWAYS DEFEND HIM BECAUSE HE IS A FUNNY GUY AND IS LIKED BY THOSE WHO LIKE HIM EVEN.IF YOU DON’T.

Look Her Right In The Eye and Ask Her, Do You Have A MillionDollars? Don’t Wait For An Answer, Just Ask Bluntly, Why And The Hell Are You On My Show. When Others Are Here To Win Money Because They Need It. Again Say If You Have a It Do You Think It’s Fair To Those In Need? Then Since You Own The Show? Sa y Just Go To A Commercial

Even though she messed up her answer on public so what she made n a out of her self that should be enough ask nother questions like it. How much would you give for a junk used car or something but for a dog it depends on the breed and your location so 25 dollars to 100. That right who cares what the answer is makefun of someone on how they said it. Or how they looked when answer not on the answer so give her another question and try again so make fun of slow learning thinking people not write very sad

I love watching Steve Harvey. To the person commenting that To pay 1 million dollars for the return of a lost pet was WILD and CRAZY!!!. Would you pay that to get your son or daughter returned safely? To animal lovers their dogs, cats, whatever, is like their children. Animals, dogs especially, love unconditionally, they are always happy to see you when you come home, they try and make you feel better when you are sick, or have a broken heart, they can detect things in your body before you can, like diabetes, seizures, etc. And they protect you and would give their life to keep you from harm. If I had a million dollars, you better believe I would give it to have my dog back, in a heartbeat. Peggy wasn’t saying she had millions, just that she would give that much. I stand with you Peggy.

He is so full of himself and can be so crude. I would never let children watch him on his show. Sometimes he can be down right discusting.
