Family Already Has 2 Strikes, Then Steve Harvey Stares Blankly At Mom After She Says ‘Potato’

Thinking on your toes is hard enough when there’s a time limit, but when you’re on Family Feud and already have two strikes, the pressure can be intense!

When Laura had to answer the prompt, “Name a word or phrase that starts with ‘pot,'” she knew she was the last hope for her family in the round. They already had two strikes, and she had to shout out an answer that would appear on the board if they wanted to rack up points.

With three of five answers already up there, the mom told Steve Harvey “potato.” In the video below, that’s when the camera pans to Steve’s blank stare. Technically, Laura is correct, the word does start with “pot” even if it’s not pronounced pot-tato. Even her family backed her up on this!

“Why y’all clappin’?” Steve says after almost 20 seconds of speechlessness. “Ma’am, it starts with ‘pot,’ we all know no one says, ‘pot-tato!'”

The Family Feud host even tells the family he’s going to “start walking toward the Scott family” because he thinks the mom’s answer will give her family their last strike.

To Steve’s surprise, “potato” chimes onto the board and grabs the second answer! The funnyman then starts dramatically faking a heart attack while the family celebrates the good answer! “I am so sorry,” Steve tells Laura. “You’re older, you know more than I do, forgive me please!”

What would your answer to this question be?
