Steve Harvey, the host of the Family Feud television show, was shocked at an answer that was given by one of his contestants back in January, and it’s surprising he’s been able to keep it a secret for so long.
When prompted with “Name something a doctor might pull out of a person,” one contestant, Darci, gave the most hilariously strange answer Harvey has heard since he starting hosting the show in 2010. Darci punched the buzzer and yelled out the first thing that came to her mind; in this case it was “A gerbil!” Harvey was so startled that Darci quickly came to her own defense claiming, “I heard about something like that once.”

Harvey repeatedly reenacts Darci’s response before checking with the computer to see if “a gerbil” was amongst the top seven answers given from the public. To no one’s surprise, Darci’s answer was wrong. The other contestant, Manny, quickly chimed in with a right answer, “a baby.”

The episode aired on February 9 and quickly became a viral hit. The YouTube clip has been shared over 1,700 times already through the Family Feud Facebook page. Darci’s niece, Torrey Callahan, took to her Twitter page to show her aunt the love and support she needs. Callahan had also posted a photo on January 8 of her family on the show.
