Chris Harrison Talks ‘Millionaire,’ Does Unexpected Steve Harvey Impression

What happens in Vegas… is now hosted by Chris Harrison. TV’s busiest host — see: Miss America, ABC’s Emmys red carpet pre-show, The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, Bachelor in Paradise, and of course Who Wants to Be a Millionaire — is presiding over a new season of the game show, which now shoots out of Las Vegas. “The audience is electric. These are tourists from all over the world and they want to see a live Vegas show,” Harrison told Yahoo TV on a recent visit. “Then you have this gamblers’ mentality that the contestants have… Like, ‘I’m in Vegas, I’m gonna go for it.‘” And shooting Millionaire in Vegas has its perks for the host, too — including the rib cap at Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant, and a certain beer garden that Harrison doesn’t want us to tell you about. (Spoiler alert, it’s in the video.)

For those of you going through Bachelor withdrawal, meanwhile, Millionaire‘s Bachelor Fan Favorites week is back this season — and Harrison went deep into his rolodex to bring fans one Bachelor Nation contestant they’ll never expect.

Of course, we couldn’t let our favorite Yahoo TV blogger go without making him sweat a little — so we decided to test his knowledge of classic game show catchphrases. Check out the second video, and be sure to freeze frame on his Steve Harvey impression. Perfection.

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire airs weekdays in syndication. Check local listings.
