Game shows are one of America’s favorite types of television programming and have been since the dawn of the television era. One of the most classic shows is “Family Feud,” which has been running almost nonstop since 1976.
It’s current host, Steve Harvey, really knows how to play a family off itself, and how to get the audience worked up. You are going to love this recent clip featuring two husbands and a question no husband wants to answer.
Recently, Harvey asked two husbands, one a Marine, to answer the question, “Which of the seven dwarves would your wife be in bed?”
These men were so embarrassed by the question that all they could muster was silence. After a few moments of nodding heads from both sides of the counter, the Marine answers “just to get on the board.” Did the modest marine guess correctly? You’ll have to watch the video to find out.
We wanted to learn more about this classic game show that has been entertaining for almost two generations, and share what we learned with you here.
