  • Steve Harvey had an unexpected reaction when NFL Hall of Famer Bruce Smith answered the question: “If Captain Hook was moonlighting as a handyman, he might replace his hook with what tool?”

  • Fans of the game show host loved his delayed, but epic, response.

By now, Steve Harvey should be used to hearing shocking answers on Family Feud. But the longtime host was recently caught off guard during a Fast Money round featuring NFL Hall of Famer Bruce Smith.

In an episode of Celebrity Family Feud, NFL athletes went up against each other in a matchup between Hall of Famers and Rising Stars. With 25 seconds on the clock, Steve asked Bruce: “If Captain Hook was moonlighting as a handyman, he might replace his hook with what tool?”

Bruce's initial response “hammer” received the buzzer because it had already been said by his teammate Michael Irvin. The 57-year-old then scrambled to come up with a different guess and, well, it wasn’t exactly what you’d expect. See for yourself:

After hearing Bruce's second answer, Steve moved right on to the next question ... that is, until he registered what had just been said. “What the f—k did he say?” Steve asked while turning to the audience.

As the crowd erupted with laughter, Steve began apologizing over and over for his cursing. “I’m sorry. That just came out. I don’t even know where that came from,” he said. “I was reading the question and then I said to him, ‘What the f—k?’ I’m sorry. Okay, can we start over? I’m sorry.”

Before he did though, Steve let Bruce know that his NSFW answer would be seen by many more online. “Oh, but you’re going to be on YouTube,” the Facebook Watch star declared. “You’re going to be the greatest clip ever played.”

In the end, Bruce’s risqué answer didn’t earn him any points on the big board. But he came through for his team, earning them a huge victory with his other safer guesses. As for Family Feud fans at home, this is one round they’ll be remembering for a while.

“The delayed reaction is the best moment I’ve ever seen,” one person wrote. “I have not laughed that hard in a long time. Steve’s reaction was gold,” another added. “I thought I misheard, then Steve confirmed I wasn't the only one,” a different fan said. “This episode was awesome!!!” a follower commented.

Here’s to Steve and his epic reactions!
